5 stars Images and Words is a masterpiece from the prog band Dream Theater. This album combines beatiful ballads, heavy songs and epic ones, plus virtuoso parts and a wide palette of sounds.

Pull Me Under it's the most popular DT track. It's a heavy song with a dense atmosphere and various solos.

It's remarkable the vocal range of James LaBrie on this album, specially in "Take The Time". This song is a rollercoaster of solos, fast arrangements, all packed in odd meters. The intro's arrangements reach a level of musical synergy never heard before.

Metropolis Pt1 it's another classic track. Played in the majority of live gigs, it's a powerful and complex song. The drums sounds really hard (or harsh, maybe) but, musically, Portnoy makes and excellent job.

Learning To Live is the epic song of I&W. Just listen to Kevin Moore's arrangements, Petrucci's solos and Portnoy's sensitive drumming. The outro is amazing too and invites you to play the album over and over.

I give it 5/5.
