3 stars Oh the classic Dream Theater album!

Images And Words (1992) has been considered so much of a perfect album, that finally united Prog and Metal.

Don't get me wrong, this is a really good album, really good, but the sounds here... I mean, guitar sounds, bass sounds, and to be more specific, the drums sounds and keyboard sounds on this album are really, really bad, dates sounds and production. Like a cheap B production of the early 90's. It doesn't stand the test of time for me. And prettu much the same goes for the next album of the band Awake (1994), things only began to change in A Change Of Seasons (1995) (maybe the name were a clue).

'Pull Me Under', 'Under a Glass Moon' and 'Learning to Live' are great songs of the genre known as Prog Metal, if only this record was release some years later...
