2 stars Well, this is quite disappointing. This is meant to be a compilation which has Dream Theater's best songs. A quick glance at the tracklist and I know something's wrong. Why am I seeing songs such as To Live Forever and Peruvian Skies, and not seeing Metropolis, not seeing anything from the 24 minute masterpiece song Octavarium, and most importantly, not seeing A Change of Seasons. Ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, the songs that are included on the album are certainly good songs, which is why I give this album 2 stars, but they could have picked much better ones. This is really just a collection of Dream Theater's most accessible songs that would appeal to the average person, but not giving an accurate impression of what lots of the band's music is like. Dream Theater is known for their long songs, and yet the longest track that we have here is Endless Sacrifice, at 11 minutes. It's a great song, but it's basically just a verse-chorus- verse-chorus song with a big instrumental section. This is really just a bad representation of Dream Theater, which is exactly what it wasn't meant to be. 2/5
