5 stars Is it OK if I rank the track here, ignoring the covers?

Not that the covers are BAD, but what a shame that the masterpiece "A Change of Seasons" cannot be hailed in these archives with its own rating. I suppose the championing of the live album from New York makes up for it.

"A Change of Seasons" is, and probably will remain, the band's BEST work. I can't find any flaws - just great rock, great prog, great melody, great solos, great guitar riffs, great lyrics, great vocals, great everything!! What amazes me about this album is that it was the band's first REAL epic, and in it they mastered the ability to smoothly transition between sections, I'm not just talking about the 15 seconds of going from one section to another, but the placement of each section in the track, and the progression from one to the next.

Fortunately, following James Labrie's health disaster, the quality of the voice he was born with was mostly retained for the recording of this EP!

This track will liiiiiiiive ooooooon!
