3 stars If you like the DT "soft" side, this is for you

Many people don't understand the essence of Dream Theater. While they're not interested on realizing hit singles, occasionally they brought out some EPs just to have something "extra" out there. And this is maybe their finest release of "extras".

You will get the traditional track of the "single", the minimalistic version with only piano and vocals and the Demo guide that John Petrucci sang to teach it to James Labrie. This version is quite intriguing and beautiful, and it's not better than the original version but it really changes the vibe completely.

You ended the album with a Mike Portnoy version of THE BEST OF TIMES, which is nice and cool, but of course is not near the final version. As it is available on Deezer, I didn't need to pay for the import to Guatemala and it's an occasional album that I hear very often when I'm on an easy going kind of mood. Nice for those who like the "soft" side of DT. 3 strong stars. A really nice surprise.
