5 stars An amazing album. One of my favorites and one of the best Prog Metal CDs ever recorded.

-Pull Me Under: Great, Shakespeare-influenced lyrics accompanied by some dynamic guitar work by John Petrucci, a constantly moving bass-line and aweosme keyboard and drum work.

-Another Day: A well-written ballad featuring some very fitting saxophone playing.

-Take the Time: Very epic & moving. One of DT's 'signature' songs. The lyrics were written by everyone in the band and therefore, the song is very dynamic. From start to finish, a perfect song.

-Surrounded: Great guitar solo. Excellently written.

-Metropolis, Pt.1: The Miracle and the Sleeper: Another one of DT's 'signature' songs. Epic and complex, this song isevokes images reminiscent of stories like the Iliad & the Oddyssey. Great song.

-Under a Glass Moon: A favorite among DT fans (actually, nearly every song on this album is a favorite among DT fans). UAGM has a distinctly Prog feel to it, much like Metropolis, TTT & LTL off of this album. The Guitar solo is incredible.

-Wait for Sleep: A well-written segue into LTL. Fulfills is purpose and then some.

-Learning to Live: Epic, moving and dynamic, this song was written about the AIDs virus by - I believe - John Myung and goes through so many stages that it's on par with just about any epic written by any band, even though at 11:30, it's still shorter than most epics. A perfect song and a perfect ending to this amazing album.

Fuzz | 5/5 |
