5 stars This one is a tough one to rate since half the album is comprised of cover songs. Therefore I will focus my rating on the original song from Dream Theater.

Change of Seasons is one of prog's greatest epics, and my second favorite from Dream Theater after Octavarium. The song has many parts and ideas, all of which are connected seamlessly. Like always, the musicians are at the top of their game. Derek Sherinian adds an interesting sound to the album unlike any of their others (except Falling Into Infinity of course).

The song is split up into seven parts, all of which offer some unique to the song. The Crimson Sunrise and Innocence are an energetic and heavy intro to the album. Carpe Diem and Another World are LaBrie at his best delivering some emotional vocals. The Darkest of Winters contains some of Dream Theaters best riffs, while the Inevitable Summer has some more atmospheric guitar from John Petrucci.

If I had to nitpick at the song it would be the production of the snare drum. it sounds too harsh and loud. Other than that, this is pretty much a perfect song.

10/10
