5 stars when prog rock bands of the 70's began to tire their audience cause their inspiration was wearing out or disappoint them cause they were turning into pop rock bands, punk rock came along and finished them off...then came neo prog to put life in this genre until again grudge kicks it back down... first, there was Yes, Rush, KC and so many others, then it was Marillion and IQ that helped prog survive... then came "Nevermind" by Nirvana and everybody started carving the tomb stone of quality music...until 1992...

DT released WDADU and received very good reviews..they were the next promising prog band but that was all...however, things didn't seem very good because lead singer Dominici left the band and they couldn't find a label... then two things happened: James Labrie and WEA.. LaBrie's excellent vocals and I&W fine production were the carpet upon which DT laid 8 tracks that paid respect to 70's prog heritage but also looked forward...they defined next decade's prog and turned the eyes of all the world back to our favourite music and made them dig in the 70' s discography...after all, this is the album that made me listen to prog...
