5 stars Dream Theater has not been getting enough respect on the Archives of late. It's not right when Areyon and Pain of Salvation are higher on a Prog Metal list than Dream Theater. Prog aside, this is one of the greatest metal albums ever. The riffs and melodies are very memorable and the soloing is some of the most impressive ever recorded. Pull Me Under is a classic and has some great melodies and the lyrics are epic, probably the best track on the album. Another Day is a super corny ballad that has this great saxaphone solo from the Spyro Gyra guy. Take the Time is another great song, almost as good as Pull Me Under and again has very memorable parts. Metropolois is an epic song for sure. The beginning has one of the most epic keyboard melodies of all time and the track does get overly-complex at times, but it has more than enough great parts to make up for it. Under a Glass Moon has one of the most insane guitar solos ever. The solo is very impressive of course, but it's also very catchy, with some jazziness to it. Learning to Live is another good track. What I remember most about it is the acoustic guitar solo in the middle of it; beautiful. This is truly one of the greatest prog metal albums and essential to anyone interested in the genre.
