5 stars Really a masterpiece of progressive rock music!

With this album I had my first contact with this great band, the Dream Theater. It could not have been better. Okay, some people can say that this album does not have the musical matureness of others albuns of the band, as "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence" (a great one too), but "Awake" is my favorite one.

All the tracks are in one same line of quality, at any moment the album becomes boring.

With well characteristics musics of the Dream Theater, stuffed of gummy and wonderful chorus, drums to take off the breath, competent and creative basses, very beatifull and sentimental passages of keyboard, PERFECTS vocal lines (and so well interpreted) and, to finish, the guitars, that i will only say, JOHN PETRUCCI.

A very good production, the perfect "coloured" instruments can show you this.

If you don't know about Dream Theater, or don't have this album, only buy this. =D
