 A hidden gem!!!

| | See all RossMB's reviews (7)

This is one of dt's most underrated albums!! Even mike portnoy said "it's not dt's finest moment" and when you listen to the album once through you will think to yourself "this doesnt sound like usual dream theater!". But then you'll play it through again, and again, each time discovering something different!
The songs "new millenium" "trial of tears" "lines in the sand" are mind blowing!!
"Take away my pain", the ballad written by petrucci for the death of his father is a touching moment.
Despite the more commercial aspect to this album, there are still some classic prog metal moments, e.g "peruvian skies" or "lines in the sand"
But even though mp says this album's "not dt's finest moment", songs from this album regularly appear in their lives set's,so i think he loves it really :)

 Dream Theater's Little Known Masterstroke

| | See all SaintCedric's reviews (14)

I have heard a large amount of Dream Theater, and this album was never really mentioned by those friends of mine who introduced me to this band to crown all bands. I really can't see why. I think that, as an album, this is thier best. A better collection of songs can maybe be found in Images and Words, but this I think works better as an album, and the generall feel with this Dream Theater style is I think superior to all other albums. DT still manage to cover a variety of tonal colours, but the general feel is soft relaxing ballads that soothe and lift the spirit. I think this is the only DT CD I will still be listening to in 40 years. Unlike all other DT I have heard, it does not beg to be listened to actively, and can be appreciated well as background music, and, in that setting, it really does give a room a feel of sensual bliss. I don't think a better CD exists really. Change of Seasons is still I think the band's best work, but that must be listened to and appreciated like a peice of beautiful scenery you see from the top of a mountain. Falling into Infinity can be walked through and marvelled at. Such feelgood factor was never found. The softer songs especially are just so good you just want to curl up in them forever.
1 - New Millenium - Heaviest and most progressive track, more like I&W fodder really, a great feeling of expectation.
2 - You not Me - Most unprogressive DT track ever, good feelgood factor but not I think I high point of the album.
3 - Peruvian Skies - A dark and brooding epic, is contained on the Dark Side CD of the best ever compilation, builds and builds from a soft ballad to a metal masterpiece, but still completely nonoffensive as well as beautiful to the extreme.
4 - Hollow Years - The best single song ever (CofS is more of a suite,) soft rock ballad to rule all, live version on Once in a LIVEtime is even better, beats the single edit and LP edits into a cocked hat.
5 - Burning my Soul - Unfortunate inclusion I think, probably the weakest song on the album, seems to drag a little, the closest DT have ever come to a poor song, brutal but not heavy, and hence very edgy and unsure. Only DT song I've ever heard with an expletive.
6 - Hell's Kitchen - Superior Instrumental, really licked, quite progressive, better than any other DT instrumental I think.
7 - Lines in the Sand - Lovely song, but a little too long I think, beautiful guitar and keyboard solo.
8 - Take Away my Pain - nearly as good as Hollow Years, beautiful ballad, Once in a LIVEtime version is again better though as it has saxaphone from Jay Beckenstien.
9 - Just let me Breathe - A bit more intense, very nice driving song, everything Burning my Soul might have been.
10 - Anna Lee - Why does LaBrie not write more songs? This is another absolute cracker, beautiful piano ballad.
11 - Trial of Tears - Lovely suite of three songs (It's Raining, Deep in Heaven, The Wasteland.) Soft and technical, uplifing and beautiful, especially the first part.

In all, such a good album you'd be crazy not to buy it at twice the price.

 DT's most underrated outing

Top 100 Music Reviewer

For many fans, this is the one that got away. To start with, the cover is not a typical DT cover, and no obvious sign of the majesty logo. However, I believe this to be one of DT's best recordings, possibly only bettered than SDOIT. Yes, I think it is better overall than SFAM. Why? Well, it is now 10 years old and it stands the test of time very well. You only have to look at DT set lists which continue to hold tracks from this album - the band members must be proud of them. And so they should. "New Millenium" and "You Not Me" are both excellent as separate tracks, or the hybrid that has been played from time to time. "Peruvian Skies" is aka Robin Trower at his best (Bridge of Sighs), and "Hollow Years" is the ballad that always seems to be at DT gigs - and quite right too. It is beautiful. There are plenty of other excellent tracks both slow and not so slow on this album, but one cannot ignore "Just Let Me Breathe" which is played at break-neck pace, delivered with superb lyrics and a great chugging guitar-line. With SDOIT, and the wonderful "The Spirit Carries On (SFAM)" this is another brilliant DT moment.

Considered by many to be one of Dream Theater's weaker albums, this more pop/rock-orientated collection of songs is still a gem. The musical ability is evident for all to hear and the lyrics are thought-provoking.

 some songs are great!

Some songs are great, some songs are not. I think this is dream theaters worst album but it still has some quality songs on it like peruvian skies and trail of tears.
