3 stars Looking back on the band's output, and ignoring the raving/ranting reviews about this album, we can see that "Falling Into Infinity" is a smart, and logical progression in the band's sound-- one that is experimental, energetic, and different than its predecessors (hence, the rants).

Sherinian picks up Moore's place with effectiveness and the band as a whole plays very well throughout, using new textures (evident on "New Millennium) and styles ("Peruvian Skies", "Anna Lee") to further expand their repertoire and reach new fans. The two extended songs make for nice examples of the band's early progressive sound. There are some excellent instrumental sections as well, and as a whole "Falling into Infinity" feels much more purposeful than many of the band's newer albums.

While the song writing, lyrics and melodies on this one don't quite pack the punch of "Images and Words", they still make for great listening, especially after repeated plays.

Songwriting: 3 Instrumental Performances: 4 Lyrics/Vocals: 3 Style/Emotion/Replay: 3
