4 stars This is way better than the comercial album... and you will find many interesting moments in this album... recomended for every DT fan... is surely a must have...!!!

I start saying that I really enjoy the Falling Into Infinity album... sure is not Dream Theater but is great and over the standard of comercial music. Trail of Tears, New Millenium, Hell's Kitchen and Lines in the Sand are really good and I can't complain about it... Long, interesting, touching... it has everything that you could like... but the rest of the album sound more like an alternative band... just regular stuff...

After hearing all these demos... well, I cannot comprehend how they chop all that good songs. I don't know how you make a contract with a prog band and then try to push it to a comercial way... Is kind of stupid... but well... You will find the original pieces here... without external pression... as the way DT works in the last ten years... I have to say, maybe Sherinian wasn't meant for the band, he's not trying to break every wall around down, he makes a nice work but he can scaped from the Shadow of the great Kevin Moore, so you notice that he play nice, but really isn't that good. Rudess still hides behind of his giantic solos but well... that's a different case...

Sure there are more comercial songs, that maybe could work better than the selected tracks on the album... so put attention to these work 'cause is the Falling into Infinity that everybody wishes... jejeje... I still enjoy it... but after hearing these one... is a shame the amount of pression a label could put on a creative band...

You'll enjoy it... for sure...!!!
