5 stars The best Dt album, this album is a full package of good stuff, taking some tunes from the original Metropolis pt 1, and also some lyrics, it's a long-length reissue of that song.

This album uses the solos more often than the other ones, in that is the beginning of the end of DT: they are loosing they idea of band; but in this album is still goos, even gives more dynamic to the whole thing, giving more pleasure sometimes.

Another good thing of the album is how the play around with some rhythms: using in differents parts of the album and in different tunes, but still, being the same idea, the same happens with the song "this feeling, inside me", how they use that phrase so many times and in so many differentes circumstances, it's a genius work, really great.

And in this album you can heard the bass plalyer more than any other Dt album, at least, he tried to be himself and not another petrucci with other instrument.

Bad things?, Scene Eight: The Spirit Carries On, and One Last Time, but those songs can't kill the great job.

CGH Tompkins | 5/5 |
