4 stars I hold this album in high regard. Not every song is perfect which stops it from being a 5/5, but being the album which got me into Dream Theater, it still amazes me in the thought put into the album.

The Root of All Evil - 4/5. Good song. Just the right length.

The Answer Lies Within - 3.5/5. Cute. I like this song. Very soothing

These Walls - 3.5/5. Good rocking track with great drumming

I Walk Beside You - 3.5/5. Shows you dont need complexity to make a song sound good

Panic Attack - 4.5/5. Heavy. Awesome. Great soloing

Never Enough - 5/5. Mine and DT's heavy Muse love and influence shines through. A brilliant track which I still can't get enough of.

Sacrificed Songs - 3/5. Starts off a bit slow, but ends well.

Octavarium - 5/5. The amount of time i've put in to listening to this track is amazing. This is a journey through art.

RainingStigmata | 4/5 |
