3 stars It seems that I am one of the few that will not belaud this album. In their third work, Dream Theater sound heavier than before and LaBrie's voice is on purpose, hoarser than ever. There are some very nice compositions such as 6:00, Caught in a Web,Voices, The Mirror,Lie and the all-time classic lyrical Space Dye Vest. But there are also some boring songs such as The Silent Man and Lifting Shadows off a Dream. Furthermore, the instrumental Erotomania is by far the weakest instrumental from what I've heard in their other works(Train of Thought, Metropolis pt.2,Six Degrres of Inner Turbulence). Of course the whole album it has some jazz influences which are very welcome by me, but in general I believe that it is just a good effort and nothing more. That is why I will rate it with 3 stars. It could have been 3,5 stars, but I expect something more from Dream Theater.
