Most fans of Dream Theater will know what was going on behind the scenes during the making of this album. If you don't, I'll give you a moment to quickly research it.

Done?

Never mind, I'll explain it to you.

The bands label, Atco Records, had been bought out by the Warner Music Group. The fine people at Warner didn't know anything about Dream Theater, their music or their market, but had only one thing in mind, and that was hit singles. Musical integrity aside, Dream Theater were being forced to write "hits", and it was putting the band in a situation that almost tore them apart.

With all the industry nonsense getting in the way of this album, and with the change of sound giving it a stale taste of a band "selling out" to make a quick buck, 'Falling Into Infinity' often finds itself being overlooked. It may not be as musically technical as 'Images & Words', or as heavy as 'Awake', but this album still maintains a lot of Dream Theater's trademark sounds, but with a lighter tone that might appeal to fans of old progressive rock, or even hard rock fans in general. In this regard, it's actually a pretty unique release in the groups discography.

As always with this band, the musicianship is unmatched. Petrucci, Portnoy, LaBrie (who damaged his vocal chords prior to recording this album) and Myung are all masters of their respective instruments. Keyboardist Derek Sherinian, making his only studio album appearance, may have seemed like an odd choice to replace Kevin Moore, but his style, mixing elements of hard rock and jazz fusion, makes him a perfect fit. And his flamboyance and showmanship really shines through on some of the more upbeat songs.

There's hard rock tracks such as 'You Not Me' and 'Burning My Soul', pop singles like 'Take Away the Pain' and 'Hollow Years', and all-out prog gems like 'Peruvian Skies', 'New Millennium' and 'Lines in the Sand'. With such an eclectic mixture of songs, this really is an exceptional album, which shows a band that can adapt to any circumstance, and overcome any challenge.

It was published in 1995 A Change For Seasons with its five songs a short snack, Falling into Infinity is with its 11 tracks with a total playing time of more than 78 minutes provided value for money. This by Kevin Shirley (including Alanis Morrissette and Journey) produced album sounds like a clock; solid rock which refers to bands like Deep Purple, Rush and Pink Floyd in long drawn out songs by sometimes more than ten minutes. Also the current on almost every rock album inevitable ballads are not lacking.

Why is this release now listed as "Reissue"?
Wasn't this the first time that it was pressed on vinyl?

Just to be sure, is this supposed to be the 2016 version (which came out on August 22nd)? Because the only Music on Vinyl FII version I knew before this one was a standard black 2LP...

I own the transparent vinyl pressing, and it sounds absolutely fantastic, dead silent and good dynamic range. It looks sexy too. Only downside, no gatefold sleeve, but a solid release overall.

Falling into Infinity might be one of the most accessible Dream Theater works but it still packs a punch and some breathtaking guitar licks (I'm looking at you Peruvian Skies) and a masterpiece in the form of Trial of Tears.

Got this white vinyl. The gatefold sleeve should have been better for the current selling price. Sounds absolutely awesome!

Bloody expensive issue! But worth the experience sonically. 1 gripe though, print quality of cover is pixelated. It's like a blown up image of a low quality digital file as I mentioned on Awake album of same pressing release.

There is a section of music played in the middle of 'Trial of Tears' that is so emotive it beggars belief and I don't think many bands would have the neccessary skill to be able to play it.
Sherinian is arguably the best keyboard player DT ever had, his playing on this album is perfection.The musicianship is beyond reproach, if only DT would get themselves a gutsy vocalist in the Gillan ilk!
Despite that the album is a classic.
