5 stars An album that truly surprised me when I first listened it. It's like a sort of evil version of Images And Words, by that I mean that The riffs are much darker and the whole record is much more mellow. The album features multiple tracks that remain as classics of progressive metal, like the groovy 6:00 or the tricky and technical The Mirror. The album closes with two of my favorite Dream Theater tracks, Scarred and Space Dye Vest. I can definitely say this is an essential record for progressive metal. Absolutely recommended for any progressive metal fan or progressive rock fan. Five Stars.
