4 stars Like most reviews before mine I agree that the song "A change of Seasons" is indeed a classic. The way the song begins with youth and ends in old age, like the change of the seasons. Itīs a great composition and Portnoy has written some excellent lyrics.

The remainder of the album is cover songs, some they pull off well and some they donīt. The Elton John and Led Zeppelin covers are very well done. Their version of "Perfect Strangers" doesnīt work at all, the keyboards sound terrible in the beginning and La Brie goes too over the top in his Gillan imitation. The guitar solo is nothing like the original as well. "Carry on Wayward Son" is speeded up and this just spoils it completely.( If you really want to hear a good cover, try Yngwie Malmsteenīs cover of this song)

But this gets four stars for the title track alone, which is probably their greatest song to date.

WaywardSon | 4/5 |
