What one expects from this supergroup one gets, a recommendation in itself then. The long track The Whirlwind is a stunning piece fo progressive music, that also boasts the glamour of the country, that brought us hollywood. playing and vocals are both ... See full review
posted a review of Dream Theater - Awake. over 4 years ago
In my opinion though this album has some good moments, it is decidedly the least spectacular of DT's output. Starting to show it's age now, but still neccessary for the completeist and for anyone who have not heard anything else by the group.

I wondered if some of this album was showboating. It is, but how sublimely they do it. Get it, you will love every minute

The best Galleon disc by quite some margin. As they don't make bad albums, ever, that says a lot for this one and it is a fabulous acheivement, superb musicianship, great writing and memorable tunes, what more do you need?

9.3

Superb musicianship once more, as one has come to accept from this excellent band. once again though what could have been a truly awe inspiring album is only brilliant due to the weedy and feminine vocals of LaBrie, who has to be the 'Ringo' of the group
posted a review of Dream Theater - Falling Into Infinity. over 4 years ago
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 ... See full review

Querky and wonderfully eccentric. Made by a band who just want to make the music they want with no regard for sales, sublime. Recommended 9.125 (out of 10 of course)
