4 stars This is the first Dream Theater album I ever got. I loved it, although my two friends at that time, Jacob (WHITE WILLOW) and Trond (PANZERPAPPA) branded it as too heavy.

Compared to Images And Words, this is a very heavy album indeed. But I would not call it straight heavy metal. Awake has one foot firmly planted in prog rock and the other one in metal. Maybe this is DTs most heavy album. It is most certainly a good album. Songs like Caught In A Web, Innocence Faded, Erotomania and Voices are superb and there is no really weak part on this album. The vocals are superb. The guitars are the main instrument here and really drives the songs forward.

There is nothing here I dislike. A good 4 stars from me.
