2 stars The first thing that came to my mind listening to this CD was "Oh no not another DT clone band!".Actually there are already enough of this kind on the market.Who needs one more? Me not for sure. We have in Germany the very good band Vanden Plas with an excellent singer who's sounding at least a bit different from DT. But a band who has even a similar name and a singer with a very similar voice??? I would not say that they are playing badly, not at all, they are even quite good. Off course the guitar player does not have completely the technical skills of a John Petrucci and it is quite difficult to come close to musicians like Portnoy, Rudess or Sherinian. But anyway I find it a bit ridiculous and maybe it's just a kind of envy. DT and its musicians became famous for a good reason, because they are extremely good and they deserve to be admired. And I doubt that DREAMSCAPE could have played the same role as them. I will not go into detail of the music on "End of Silence" since my co-reviewer did already describe it quite well. It's a very nice Melodic Progressive Metal album, it contains lots of music, that's true (but quantity is not important anyway). But it's as well nothing special, not inventive at all and after a while just boring, because one thinks: "I've heard something like this before, just played in a better way". So for sure I can't call this album an essential and must-have one. I think everyone can live quite well without ever having listened to it. Actually I would recommend it only to people who want to collect every band that plays similar music like DT.
