Review by baz91
2 stars Afterlife isn't a terrible song, but it's not a particularly good one either. In all honesty, I find this track rather repetitive. This is the oldest song on 'When Dream And Day Unite' and was written in 1986, although the lyrics have been changed from the original version by Dominici. The early lyrics can be heard (although they are not sung as much as squealed) on the 'No Sleep Since Brooklyn' bootleg, where they were sung by Chris Collins, Dream Theater's - or should I say Majesty's - first singer. The best part of this song is naturally the instrumental, where there is a guitar solo followed by a unison solo, played at breakneck speed. This is my least favourite song from 'When Dream And Day Unite', and I have no idea why it was released as a single.
