I just bought this LP, but it seems a bit different. It's again by Music On Vinyl with the sticker on the plastic bag, but there is no insert with lyrics and the matrix codes on the two sides of the vinyl are 95696 2A MOVLP 780 / 95696 2B MOVLP 780, instead of 1A / 1B respectively. Should I add a new release or is this just a variant of this release?

It was back in 2003 that I was looking in a Virgin Megastore (remember those?) with the noble intention of investing my money in a band I'd never heard before. These were before the days when Youtube and streaming were so easily accessible. When we had to take risks with our money to try out new artists. I had stumbled across an album by a band I'd only heard of in name, but that risk was about to pay off; Dream Theater.

Being a 16-year-old heavy metal fan at the time, raised on a healthy diet of groups such as Megadeth, Metallica, Kiss and Rammstein, my initial thoughts were, quite simply; “this album sucks”. However, one thing piqued my interest, and it should come as no surprise that it was the amazingly heavy intro to the opening track, ‘Pull Me Under’.

As I heard more and more, the album grew on me. All these random traits of progressive music were becoming clearer. Odd time signatures, long, complex arrangements, the eclectic mixture of styles, keyboards (a heavy metal no-no), the creative lyrics and massive instrumental sections... It all started to make sense. To this day, 'Images and Words' not only introduced me to a new style of music, but a whole new way of looking at music.

So what makes it so great?

'Images and Words' is an album that defined a genre. Without Dream Theater, progressive metal might never have become what it did. Coming at a time when the genre was in its infancy, Dream Theater had that intangible X-factor that bands like Fates Warning, Queensryche, and even a group like Rush, were all missing at that point.

There's a perfect combination of everything on this album. There's metal songs, there's ballads, there's funky songs and there's jazzy songs too. The musicianship came at a time when there weren't many bands displaying such incredible technical prowess, at least in the mainstream anyway. Every song is perfectly crafted, with interesting musical passages and mind-boggling lyrics. 'Pull Me Under', 'Take the Time', 'Learning to Live' and the monstrous epic 'Metropolis Pt. 1; The Miracle and the Sleeper' are all staples in prog metal history.

This is the record that put Dream Theater on the map, and defined all progressive metal bands/albums for years to come. Every fan of the genre needs this in their collection, immediately. And I'm sure most old-school progressive rock fans will at least appreciate the importance this album had on prog music as a whole. Undeniably my favourite album of all time, 'Images and Words' is better than perfect.

I have this exact copy, and don't understand what makes it a Russian release?

I have heard that this CD contains a bass solo on a song called Metropolis where John Myung does a bass solo.

Even though the levels don't peak like on the CD version, I feel this gives the over all sound more comfort room. Instead of the cymbals being just a tad louder than the rest of the music, everything just sits nicely, which makes things like the bass stand out even cleary (which is good for me as a drummer, I need to pay attention to the bass)
This one I would say Definitely get this, even if you already have the CD. Great packaging, great pressing, great mastering.

This is my favorite album of all time and I was so excited to find it in a vinyl store. It's much more thrilling to find it than it is to click and order from amazon :/ but yeah! I played it at home and it sounds very tasty! I'm going to be doing a Vinyl/MP3 comparison here soon. I will let you know how that goes.

This CD appears to be made in Australia by Digital Audio Technologies Australia, not in Germany as listed in the notes

The sensation we feel entering for the first time the castle of Dream Theater music is the same we feel touching a splendid ivory sculpture: motionless and icy, brilliant and lucid, formally perfect but with no life in it. Indeed, it hides an ardent soul. Despite the images continuously changing, as marbles running through a spiral staircase, the warmth generated by the melodies is immediately enveloping. Delicate melancholy and hope inflame the heart and give dreamy visions, both in wonderful music and in poetic and surrealistic lyrics, dedicated to our capacity to love and to found hope, also in our relationship with solitude and death. The intensity of the new singer - James La Brie - is perfect for the emotive atmospheres and the luminous and epic energy of a great masterpiece that will be fundamental to innovate progressive rock philosophy.

Almost perfect! The only problem I have is in Metropolis during the key/guitar duet in the middle section, it skipped right out of the packaging as a virgin record. 4 and a half stars.
