4 stars This is a great album, one of their best. Petrucci demonstrates his immense prowess and his solos and licks add a dynamic twist to the band, unlike lots of other prog I listen to. He doesn't deliver the message in one chord just because it will work, he does it in 30 fast notes because he can.

Pick this one up, definitely a classic, its only $8.99 CAD. I wouldn't consider it a masterpeice, because the drumming and bass are missing something in songs such as The Mirror and Lie (Lie contains probably some of Petruccis greatest solos), still good songs nevertheless.
