3 stars Dream Theater make something of a comeback on Metropolis Part II: Scenes From a Memory, which also sees Jordan Rudess join the band on keyboards. With three quarters of Liquid Tension Experiment onboard, you expect a certain level of technical flashiness, and personally I feel the band take this a little too far, often showing off for the sake of showing off rather than because the compositions demanded it or because it was necessary for their narrative. Also, much of the time the cheesy spirituality expressed through the music and lyrics simply turns me off - The Spirit Carries On, in particular, never fails to make me gag. However, if the daft story doesn't put you off and you like technically flashy prog metal, you may as well give this album a shot.
