5 stars This is not only my favorite album of Dream Theater after "Images and Words" and "Metropolis", but is also one of the greatest masterpieces of progressive metal.

An evolution of the sound of its predecessor, "Awake" is quite dark (as can be seen in the spectacular "The mirror" and "Lie") and melancholy ("The Silent Man" and "Space-Dye Vest").

There are no weak tracks here.I think the fact that I say this is due to my love of Dream Theater), which is somewhat blind), but the truth is that I can not find faults, well, actually a battery of Mike Portnoy is not in the best-and that because he was a monster-of drumsticks and keyboards Kevin Moore sometimes irritate me a little, although he delivered in his best work in DT (maybe because your last job) .

And then, what more can I say? 5 stars for sure!
