Prog Reviewer
2 stars The debut of the most famous progressive metal band shows the immaturity of the band. The album is sort of a mixed bag of tricks. You have some good songs here and there, and then you have some songs where you think to yourself, "what were they thinking".

The first 4 tracks here are the strongest, with Ytse Jam(Majesty backwards) being a fan favorite. It's still probably their most entertaining instrumental piece they've ever done, mostly because they just wrote from the heart rather than from their technical minds. It's fairly simple minded, but as a guitar player, you know John must have had fun writing and playing it.

Most of the album gives off a Queensryche vibe, and Dream Theater is more or less finding themselves here. Not a great album, but has a few strong points that we can enjoy.
