Well there pretty much isn't anything I could say that collaborator The T hasn't already said, his review being the first one you'd see clicking on the compilation, which pretty much sums up my views on it as well. Dream Theater is indeed one of my favorite bands, especially regarding progressive metal. I pretty much have all of their albums, either borrowed, bought, or downloaded from Napster, and have listened to them all pretty thoroughly. This compilation is its own tragic paradox; the songs on the album are ones that are more essential for FANS of the band than for proggers abroad, and if you are ALREADY a fan, than you probably already HAVE all of their albums, thus you don't need ANY of the songs. The only good thing about this album is the title, which I appreciate for humor purposes, and that's about it. Even the cover kind of sucks. Most of the band's best songs on each album don't even appear here, rather the more simple ones do. So this is even more useless for the progger than after applying the tragic fan paradox. There's no reason for this compilation to even exist except to hear the slightly humorous title. That's were the 0.5 rating comes from.
