3 stars Dream Theater is not my favourite band in the world. Not even in the top 20. But I do enjoy listening to them sometimes. In some ways they remind me of AC/DC. Not in musical style. But for both bands, their songs are pretty kool, but they all are very similar. If you hear the first 10 or 20 seconds of an AC/DC song that you have never heard before, it's not too hard to guess that the new song is AC/DC. Dream Theater hits me like that. A lot of their songs have the same feel to them.

This particular album definitely fits the above description. 'Ytse Jam' is probably my most favourite song on this album, but even it has flaws. I find myself thinking that the drumming is not up to snuff. I know some people think Portnoy is the best drummer in the world. But this album would definitely would not be exhibit 'A'. Overall the songs are OK, but nothing spectacular.
