1 stars I'm not going to say a whole lot about this album. It doesn't really even deserve the attention I'm giving it with this review. To be honest, even though I'm a huge Dream Theater fan, this is my least favorite album by the band, and mainly because of Dominici. I absolutely CAN NOT stand his voice. I find it irritating and grating. I can understand why Dream Theater got rid of him as a vocalist after this album. I simply don't find him good enough for a band this good. The sad thing is that many of the songs on here are actually good, well-written songs, but the vocals ruin it for me, and combine that with so-so production quality and you kill any chances for me liking this debut. Ytse Jam is pretty much the only song on here I could still get any enjoyment listening to. But even then, it's not good enough to avoid me giving this album a single star. If you want to hear the "real" Dream Theater first album, then go with Images and Words. Skip out on this completely. You won't miss a thing.
