3 stars I'm personally not a huge metal fan but when its still well constructed like this its enjoyable. This is a decent album with some great metal tracks and the drums and guitar parts are very impressive. My favourites on the album ar probably Voices, Lie and Erotomania. Again, not much of a headbanger but this album does make you want to do just that. Some of the softer tracks are also fairly good but I liked the heavier, rawer ones. As well, La Brie's vocals are edgy but still melodic making them work with the music. Another good aspect of this album is that it contains some nice keyboard work and there are a few classical influences in the songs. Defenently darker than their previous albums but this is a good change and lets Dream Theatre rock out a little more.
