4 stars I bought this last year because although I had everything Dream Theater released I only had some albums on digital so this was irresistible. 5 of the earliest DT and some of their best at a very cheap price so you have nothing to lose really. It was nice for me personally to receive an actual CD of some of the albums I did not own physically such as "Images And Words", "Awake" and "Falling Into Infinity": The other albums I already owned but as I said, this comes under $20 so who can complain. The box is a cool design and the cardboard mini vinyl sleeves work for me.

Of course this set has some brilliant early DT such as Pull Me Under, Metropolis - Pt. I "The Miracle And The Sleeper", Under A Glass Moon, 6:00, Caught in a Web, Space-Dye Vest, You Not Me, Peruvian Skies, Trial of Tears, and the entire "Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory". We also have "Train Of Thought" with a heavier DT sound to revel in.

It is a great set as all these 5 albums sets are and of course not really designed for those who already have all the albums. To catch up on the earlier DT sound it is worthwhile and for those who want to relive the awesome power of the band in the 1990s. 4 stars for the incredible music and for including so many masterpieces of prog metal.
