This review Pwned- no doubt. You gave everything what it deserved. Even the mention of Scenes from a Memory... Maybe how it mentions fears can refer to the story line in SfaM? Anywho

5/5 for me.

I'm just getting into earlier DT, and this looks like a good place to start.

A good review, some minor quabbles, but good, and informative all round.

Far out these guys are awsome! I can see that people dismiss this as technical wankery, but i think theyre just missing out. Metropolis pt. 1 is a truly amazing arrangment. What i love most about the album is it is just so musical.

I hear if you synch up Just the Girl and Take the Time while at a massage parlor, you'll be offered a happy ending.

Man, Metropolis pt.1, Under a Glass Moon and Surrounded are by far my favourite songs on this album. By coincidence, the first song i ever heard from DT was Learning to Live, some couple a years ago, and it was it that draged me into DT. Although i dislike "slow" songs, Pull Me Under and Another Day are pretty good, and i thing ill never get bored of Surrounded, really amasing one.

Metropolis Pt 1 is awesome, though I'm actually gonna say, the bass parts to the song wasn't as hard as I expected, the solo is tough but not overly hard.

"The song stops for a second, and Moore plays the exact some piano intro to Wait For Sleep, except a lot faster."

Actually, he uses the same right hand pattern as in the first verse of wait for sleep and adds a completely different left hand pattern that, in the second half of the "riff", is in a different time signature than the right hand (right hand is in 6/8 two measures and left hand has two measures of 5/8 and a measure of 2/8) that is seriously confusing to get down at first glance... then on the third repetition he changes the right hand a slight bit so that all that higher notes are thirds! >.This Message Edited On 06.26.06

I love this album, it was the one that got me into Dream Theater like 5 years ago, when I was 12. I just heard Pull Me Under and it was like fuck, this is an amazing band. Then I heard Take the Time and Metropolis and I really liked the band.
This review was well written, great explanation of the songs :thumb:

Metropolis...what a wierd song. Funny how that one song seems to make or break the band for certain individuals. I however, love the song. Although my favorite part of this album is the intro to "Pull Me Under". It rocks!
