2 stars My first impression on this record was good but after listening to it a couple of times I wasn't able to listen to most of the songs entirely. First, all the songs seems to turn around, round and round and round... So much ressemblances between all of them... Yes "Metropolis Part I" from Images & Words was a very good but it's no excuses for making a 77 minutes successor or at least make it right! Plus there is James Labrie's vocals that are getting worst year after year. He was so perfect on songs like "Pull Me Under" but now he's just getting me on my nerves! The album also sounds too much commercial by moments and this I really don't enjoy. There is some good points I got to admit! "Fatal Tragedy" followed by "Beyond This Life" is very good. But then again, like all the songs, it seems that everyone goes free-for-all, like if the musicians were fighting instead of playing! A lot of talent is shown in this release, especially from John Petrucci, Mike Portnoy and Ruddess, but the composition is weak... Scenes From A Memory and Falling Into Infinity are two Dream Theater albums that gave me a lot of headaches!
