'A Change Of Seasons' is something special because it is consisting of one studio track (left unreleased from the IMAGES AND WORDS recordings) and the rest are cover live songs. There are different points of view about this album and that's not unusual.

Discussions about the musical ability of this guys are not necessary - they are belonging without a doubt to the best of what the progressive rock genre offers. What some people may miss is the clear prog metal orientation. The reason is DT interprets some rock and pop songs in their own special way. The bands plays with more transitions to hard/heavy rock in the same vein as the following 'Falling Into Infinity'.

The title song is a good but not spectacular one - offering all the wellknown qualities of DREAM THEATER. 24 minutes with the complete range from ballad to hightempo rock music, arranged with great variety.

What I'm happy about are the following live medleys. A surprising mix of songs from Elton John to Led Zeppelin which they like or are playing a special role for them - don't know - the same to me. As you can hear it's a great pleasure for them to play the songs. The sound quality of the recordings is brilliant - crystal clear. For me it's working- impressive. I recommend this one because you can listen to another DT band as usual.
