3 stars 1997 saw Dream Theater release their 4th studio album, Falling into Infinity. This was one of the band's most difficult periods, as the record label was pushing them around and wanted them to produce a radio hit. Thus, this album sees them take a more commercial approach. The biggest flaw of this album is its inconsistency. There are some great tracks, such as the classic Hollow Years, Hell's Kitchen, Lines In the Sand, Trial of Tears and Anna Lee, but unfortunately, the album is bogged down with poor songs like You Not Me, Take Away My Pain and Just Let Me Breathe. They're not up to the quality of what Dream Theater has released before this album, and they're not up to the quality of the stand out tracks on this album. This is Dream Theater's most weak album. It still deserves to be bought by a fan, but don't expect a flawless masterpiece. 3/5
