1 stars Falling into Disaster

After the inspiring release of ACoS, arguably their best song, Dream Theater releases its first album to truly divide their fan base. The commercialty of this record, along with its rather simple and dull concepts will drive many nuts, especially those who are/were fans.

With songs like "Just Let Me Breathe" and "Burning My Soul", Dream Theater has pulled up lame, marketing itself to younger people by writing dull songs. There are many disastrous tracks here that are basically heavy rock riffing, and the riffs are fairly typical and boring. This also marks as LaBrie's worst vocal performance, although he does well on the track "Lines in the Sand" which is the best song you will find here.

Many will tell you Dream Theater "progressed" here from their earlier sound. I can tell you this much. Change for change sakes doesn't make things good, here the change is one to radio-friendly rock, with a few ties to the old guard.

An abominable release, to be avoided by fans of the band and the prog community.
