Sort by: Rating | Release Date | Rating Date | Name5.0 classicAt the Drive-In Relationship of CommandWhat an album! Kept me hooked all the way through with it's infectious punk-y riffs, vocals and energy. Not a boring moment on it, simply one of the best post-hardcore albums I've heard, probably the best!
Top 3 Tracks: "One armed Scissor", "Invalid Litter Dept.", "Mannequin Republic"Black Sabbath ParanoidBlack Sabbath Black SabbathA truly fantastic album that was light years ahead of it's time. One of the first heavy metal albums of all time that paved the way for all that is to come. With dark, somber lyrics, droning guitar and bass and of course Ozzy's iconic performance, this album is indeed a classic, that stands up as well today as it ever did.Bruce Springsteen Born to RunBrilliant pop-rock album from the 70s. Very energetic and very uplifting to listen to with some all time classic songs (who hasn't heard "Born to Run"??). Springsteen is also a beast live.
Top 3 Tracks: "Thunder Road", "Born to Run", "Jungleland"Camel MirageDeath SymbolicA supurb death metal album and one of the best I've heard. Technical and progressive, but not letting up on the brutality. Some supurb drumming - notably the end of 1000 Eyes and enthrilling gutiar lines.
Top 3: "Symbolic", "1,000 Eyes", "Perennial Quest"Death The Sound of PerseveranceDeep Purple Machine HeadTop 3 Tracks: Highway Star, Maybe I'm a Leo, Smoke on the WaterDeep Purple In RockDream Theater Images and WordsThe one thing I love about this album the most (despite the fresh ideas, great lyrics, perfect production and super musicianship) is the pure ENERGY each band member seems to have. Everything sounds like it's had 100% effort put into it and the band sound like they're really enjoying performing - more so than on any of their other albums. There are no over the top solos and Labrie is at his best. Also Myung is also supurb here - especially his ORGASMIC bass solo on Metropolis! Highly recommended!
Top 3 Tracks: "Pull Me Under", "Take the Time", "Metropolis: Part 1"Dream Theater AwakeA darker, heavier follow up to "Images", "Awake" is another fan favourite album and one of DT's best. Contains a excellent vocal performance by LaBrie and great playing all round from the band along with some of the band's best lyrics - jam packed with metaphors and deep meaning! More progressive and unconventional than the previous albums, this one was very hard for me to get into, but it's extremerly rewarding if you give it a chance. Kevin Moore also leaves us with the haunting "Space Dye Vest". Beautiful.rTop 3 Tracks: Caught in a Web, Voices, Scarred Dream Theater Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a MemoryAn absolute masterpiece in my mind. As my favourite album of all time, it never gets boring, each track is near perfect! The music is superb - technical and progressive yet not too "wanky" (as would happen with some later releases), brilliant songwriting and storytelling (the way the entire album flows is genius) and great lyrics and a strong vocal performance by LaBrie. Simply put, the entire band shines on this album. A classic mordern prog album!
Top 3 Tracks: "Fatal Tragedy", "Home", "Finally Free". Edge of Sanity Crimson IIEdge of Sanity CrimsonFrank Zappa Hot RatsGenesis Selling England by the PoundGenesis FoxtrotGodspeed You! Black Emperor Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas...A simply amazing album. Has a real "WOW" factor to it. Every track is stunning, beautiful and thought-provoking, especially the incredible 'Sleep', which would go in a top 10 list of the best songs ever. Reccomended for pure relaxion purposes with its calm and soothing qualities.
Recommended to all who want a truly original and deep listen. Be prepared for long songs though! (The shortest is 19 mins!)
Top 3 Tracks: "Storm", "Sleep", "Antennas to Heaven"Haken The MountainStreaming this now, and it is completely tremendous. Dream Theater are my favourite band, but this album could/will likely be my album of the year, despite their new upcoming release. Any rating below 4.5 for this would seem just... wrong.Iron Maiden The Number of the BeastOne of the greatest metal albums ever! Highly reccommended, it's great fun to listen to from start to finish - one of the most entertaining metal albums from a superb band that doesn't take themselves too seriously. Also, Bruce Dickenson is arguably one of the greatest, if not the greatest vocalist ever!
Top 3 Tracks: "The Number of the Beast", "Run to the Hills", "Hallowed be Thy Name"Iron Maiden PowerslaveTop 3 Tracks: Aces High, 2 Minutes To Midnight, Rime of the Ancient MarinerIron Maiden Seventh Son of a Seventh SonTop 3 Tracks: Can I Play with Madness?, The Evil That Men Do, Seventh Son of a Seventh SonIsis PanopticonEasily Isis' best album, this album is simply epic in every sense of the word. A real best of an album that feels gradiouse whether it be the harsh sludgy vocals, the beautiful quiet passages or the thundering guitar. Every song is perfect and completely captivating, and despite not being fast paced and having long songs, it never get' boring for a second! rTop 3 Tracks: Backlit, In Fiction, Syndic CallsJethro Tull Thick as a BrickJudas Priest PainkillerAh yes. A true metal classic. JP's best album, it's one of those album's that's just so energetic it can't be classed as anything else but 'fun'. Great fun, to be precise with an energy that never lets up. Halford is godly on this! Great driving music, by the way.rTop 3 Tracks: Painkiller, All Guns Blazing, Metal MeltdownKamelot The Black HaloKing Crimson In the Court of the Crimson KingOne of the founding albums for progressive rock, this is a stunning and timeless album. Every song is powerful, memorable and emotional, especially the emotional "I talk to the Wind" and "Epitaph". It's not all gloomy though, there's some more groovy upbeat tracks such as "21st Century Schizoid Man" and the title track. All in all a great album for chilling to with mates after a long drinking night!
100% recommended. One of the greatest albums ever made.
Top 3 Tracks: 21st Centuary Schizoid Man, Epitaph, The Court of the Crimson KingMegadeth Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?Top 3 Tracks: Wake Up Dead, Peace Sells, Good Morning/Black FridayMegadeth Rust in PeaceFast, heavy, progressive, energetic. All these words describe RIP perfectly. A landmark thrash album, although with a more progressive edge than it's peers. It contains a superb guitar performance from Mustaine and Friedman with some kick-ass solos and energetic vocal display. Very catchy and highly recommended. Also more technical than the other thrash at the time.rTop 3 Tracks: Holy Wars, Hanger 18, Tornado of SoulsMetallica Ride the LightningTop 3 Tracks: From Whom the Bell Tolls, Fade to Black, The Call of KtuluMetallica Master of PuppetsA juggernaut of an album that screams classic! Very inspirational, it floors you with it's chuggy, heavy riffs, political lyrics and powerful vocal performance from vocalist Hetfield. Also contains the swan song of former bassist, the legend Cliff Burton, with the pummeling "Orion", not to mention one of the most famous opening riffs in metal history ever with "Master of Puppets". Essential to any metal fan, itcould be the best thrash album ever made.rTop 3 Tracks: Master of Puppets, Welcome Home (Sanitarium), OrionMetallica ...And Justice for AllTop 3 Tracks: ...And Justice For All, One, To Live Is To DieOpeth Blackwater ParkComplete fire and ice. Brutality and beauty combined so perfectly at a level never achieved before. Supurb production, Mikael's vocals are amazing and powerful in both the gutteral screams to the beautifully constrasted melodic clean vocals and the guitars, drumming and bass all do an outstanding job. Supurb album, some classic death metal tracks found here.
Top 3 Tracks: "The Leper Affinity", "The Funeral Portrait", "Bleak" Opeth Still LifeTop 3 Tracks: "The Moor", "Godhead's Lament", "Moonlapse Vertigo"Ozzy Osbourne Blizzard of OzzPink Floyd The Dark Side of the MoonA supurb album, utterly perfect. Not only one of the best progressive rock albums of all time, but one of the best albums of any genre! Simple and beautiful stuff. If you haven't heard this or own this already get it. Now!
Highly Recommended. 5/ 5
Top 3 Tracks: "Time", "Us and Them", "Brain Damage"Pink Floyd Wish You Were HereAnother classic from PF. Some would say better than Dark Side, although I prefer DS. Saying that, still an incredible album - worth buying for "Shine on..." alone.
Top 3 Tracks: "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" (both parts), "Welcome to the Machine", "Wish You Were Here"Pink Floyd AnimalsQueensryche Operation: MindcrimeA pure classic and one of the best Progressive Metal albums of all time. Brilliant story along with technical and memorable songs. Geoff Tate shines.rTop 3 Tracks: "Revolution Calling", "Spreading the Disease", "Eyes of a Stranger"Queensryche Operation: Mindcrime (Deluxe Edition)Radiohead Kid ARadiohead OK ComputerAlthough not as powerful and mind blowing as Kid A, OK Computer is no doubt an amazing album. The perfect stepping stone between The Bends and Kid A, the album provides some truly stunning moments and never gets boring. Thom Yorke once again delivers a stunning vocal performance that drives the album and there are gentle and entrancing guitar and keybaord tunes throughout, cementing the album as a classic and an essential radiohead release.Robin Trower Bridge of SighsRush Permanent WavesRush 2112Rush HemispheresSepultura Beneath the RemainsTop 3 Tracks: "Beneath the Remains", "Inner Self", "Mass Hypnosis"Sigur Ros ( )Pure beauty condensed into music. What a superb album, it really takes you on a journey with the subtle yet rousing sounds presented on the album! It's a brilliant album to reflect the aspects of life and really evokes a lot of emotions. Great to listen to on a long car journey at night for best effect.rHighly recommended.rSigur Ros Agaetis byrjunSlayer Reign in BloodClassic thrash metal. Brutal, fast stuff with so much agression, energy and power in all the songs. One of the heaviest thrash albums ever, no doubt! Great gym music as well.rTop 3 Tracks: "Angel of Death", "Postmortem", "Raining Blood"Sodom M-16Heavy aggressive adrenaline pumping stuff! The combination of brutal thrash with lyrics about the vietnam war just works SO WELL. Violent and angry, it's guaranteed to pump the adrenaline up of any metal-head. Perfect for a tough wieght lifting session at the gym The best post-2000 thrash album.rTop 3 Tracks: "Napalm in the Morning", "M-16", "Lead Injection"Steven Wilson Grace for DrowningSymphony X V: The New Mythology SuiteA highly enjoyable conecpt album by Symphony X. The guitar/keyboard interplay is fantastic and the songwriting and lyrics are also amazing. It's a nice blend of progressive and power metal and the album is simply one of the best in the genre with standout tracks such as the melodic "Evolution" and the progressive middle eastern trends of "Egypt".rTop 3 Tracks: "Evolution", "Egypt", "Rediscovery Pt 2"The Beatles Abbey RoadA true classic. Very memorable, original (for the time), melodic, but yet very simple as well. Tracks that stand out for me include the jazzy "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" and "She Came In Through the Bathroom Window", the latter containing an extremerly catchy lead guitar line that you'll be humming for days! The album should really be listened to as a whole though, I think. Superb. The band is firing on all cylinders here!
Simply one of the best albums I've ever heard. I can't for the life of me choose between this and Sgt. Pepper, though!

Possibly their best album aswell, time will tell. Also their most progressive (if that appeals to you).r"Parliament", "Ghosts", "Telos", "Melting City" "Extremophile Elite" are some of the best songs they've ever written.Black Sabbath Heaven and HellBlack Sabbath Master of RealityBlack Sabbath Vol. 4Black Sabbath Sabbath Bloody SabbathBlind Guardian Imaginations from the Other SideBlind Guardian Nightfall in Middle-EarthBruce Springsteen The Wild, the Innocent, and the E Street ShuffleBruce Springsteen Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J.Bruce Springsteen Darkness on the Edge of TownBuckethead Population OverrideHaving heard a few Buckethead tracks before and not thinking much of them, this completely took me by surprise.

A heavier sound present on the album, the band present a masterpiece of a title track (alone worth the price) that's captivating, powerful and grand in scope, although not easy to digest at first. As if this wasn't enough, you get the best part of the AA suite, "Glass Prison" and the suburbly written and underrated "The Great Debate". Highly recommended to fans, though can be a lot to stomach at times due to it's grandness.rTop 3 Tracks: The Glass Prison, About to Crash, Solitary ShellDream Theater Train of ThoughtHeavy stuff here folks - for Dream Theater at least. A memorable album for being Dream Theater's heaviest, still an excellent album, but I can't help but feel the band lost something when they switched heavier. Unfortionatly, this is also where Rudess and Petrucci started to get out of hand at times, but overall this is a great album that's full of adrenaline and is sure to get your head banging! Stream of Consciousness is their best instumental aswell, showing off the bands capabilities stylishly without going overbaord.rTop 3 Tracks: Endless Sacrifice, Stream of Consciousness, In The Name of GodDream Theater A Change of SeasonsThe title track may well be the band's best ever song - it's easily the best Portnoy has written. Stunningly written and composed it's a DT essential with one of Putrucci's best solos aswell. Though that is the only DT song on the album, the cover songs are all excewllent aswell, especially "The Big Medley" - a mix songs of Floyd, Queen, Genesis and more!rTop 3 Tracks: A Change of Seasons, The Big Medley, Funeral For a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding.Dream Theater Live at BudokanDream Theater A Dramatic Turn of EventsAbsolutely brilliant album from DT. After all the turbulence in the band with Portnoy leaving, they strike back better than ever. The album encompasses their best elements. It's very melodic (LaBrie is phenomenal, could be the performance of his career!), yet extremely progressive, much more so than Black Clouds. rRudess also shines here, some of his best work can be found, especially the frankly stunning opening of "Lost Not Forgotten". Petrucci does a great job producing and his guitar work is fantastic as usual, taking the album in a lighter (thank god) direction than the last few. rOne thing that also struck me, was the lyrical quality. I have not heard lyrics so strong and meaningful since Awake, people who hated SC's & BCSL's lyrics should enjoy the more old school feel here.rFinally, Myung. HE'S BACK BITCHES! This album finally brings him back into the limelight and he does an incredible job with far more complex bass than DT has had in about a decade.rThe only slight negative is that the album can get very wanky in some parts, but it does work for the song.rA final note, give it a few listens, it's not as immediate as the last few records, but it's so worth it! :DDream Theater Live at Luna ParkWatching this now, pretty solid performance and great set list. Rudess' keyboard solo in
particular rules as does the guitar solo and it's much more professionally filmed than Chaos
in Motion. Behind the scenes material is nice giving an informal look at the band and the
effort that went into the DVD. Recommended for fans.Dream Theater Live Scenes From New YorkDream Theater Breaking the Fourth WallI honestly don't know where the low ratings are coming from, there is no way objectively this deserves below a 3, unless of course the CDs are dramatically different in quality to the Blu-ray...rAnyway, I think this is their best live release. Great performance, outstanding setlist - Half of Awake, 1/3 of Scenes, Trail of Tears, Breaking All Illusions, Illumination Theory plus many more. rProduction is also supurb and the best yet of any Mangini-era album. The drums are VERY powerful on this (just listen to the start of Shattered Fortress) and keyboard can be heard nicely. The added orchestra is truly epic on songs like Illumination Theory and Finally Free. rAlso, unlike Luna Park in places, this actually sounds LIVE, with plenty of crowd noise and a nice touch of raw-ness.rThe stage set is the bands best yet and the filming is supurb, crisp and clear.rOverall, if you're a DT fan I'd highly recommend this blu-ray. The quality of the performance and package is a must for fans, although it would have been cool to have a few more extras, such as a tour documentary and more behind the scenes stuff.Eddie and the Hot Rods Do Anything You Wanna DoEdge of Sanity Purgatory AfterglowElliott Smith Either/OrEmerson, Lake and Palmer TarkusEmerson, Lake and Palmer Emerson, Lake & PalmerEmerson, Lake and Palmer Brain Salad SurgeryEminem The Marshall Mathers LPEric Johnson Venus IsleExodus Bonded by BloodExodus Shovel Headed Kill MachineExodus Tempo of the DamnedExodus Fabulous DisasterExplorers Club Age of ImpactFates Warning No ExitFates Warning Perfect SymmetryFates Warning Awaken the GuardianFates Warning A Pleasant Shade of GrayFlotsam and Jetsam No Place for DisgraceFocus Focus 3Focus Focus IIFocus Hamburger ConcertoFreak Kitchen Spanking HourGenesis The Lamb Lies Down on BroadwayGenesis Nursery CrymeGenesis A Trick of the TailGodspeed You!

This album has everythingnyou would want from a progressive album - chilled and mystifying songs that take you on a journey, unique compositions, a veried selection of songs and brilliant musianship that is interesting throughout. And no 'wanking' whatsoever in sight. These guys could be huge with some more publicity and a few more albums.
Highly reccommended to prog or post rock fans.

From the progressive “Fresh Air” to the melodic, almost folk-like remainder of the album, this is a must-buy for fans of blues and guitar.

Are you kidding me, this was a stunning album, I was blown away! Sure, it wasn't the usual upbeat and jazzy Beck, but damn, it was so emotional and moving. A beautiful album with some brilliant subtle guitar playing that's almost reminiscent of post rock at times. The only thing that puts it down for me are the vocals, but that's just a very minor glitch in Jeff Beck's most powerful album in many years.

Here's an album that (largely) drops the virtuoso shred for a new jazz fusion / progressive style. There's also vocals on most of the songs, and while they're not the best ever, they don't take themselves too seriously and can be a fun listen at times. IMO, this is a big step up for Gilbert. The music is jazzy, funky and just a fun listen. Listen with an open mind and give it a few spins before you judge, a brilliant record that has the balls to try something new and challenge the listener. Recommended.Pendragon Not of This WorldPendragon The JewelPendragon The WorldPink Floyd MeddlePink Floyd The WallAnother brilliant Pink Floyd release, ending their string of classics released throughout the 70s. Giving a more mainstream approach to thier music, PF drelease a record that's probably thier most well known.

I'm seriously surprised only me and 1 other person has voted on this, because this guy is a class guitarist playing with a similar style to that of Joe Satriani, Steve Vai or John Petrucci. Fans of either of those 3 guitarists should really give this a chance because they would not be dissappointed. This is an all instrumental guitar album and has a variety of brilliant tracks, most notably the jazzy "Blue" and "Crusader" and the upbeat, melodic "Castel".
Very highly reccommended to 'guitar virtuoso' fans. Shame it's so difficult to find, though.

It's extremerly creative and orignal, making it a plasure to listen to from start to finish, despite its 70 min runtime. Relaxing and provocative, from the spanish influenced guitars of "Dorset Perception" to the exotic movements of "Around the World....", it's simply mesmerising!

If you enjoy this, then I highly reccomend checking out his albums. Missing "Lotus Feet" though, his best no. 7 song IMO.
Top 3 Tracks: "For the Love of God", "Tender Surrender", "Windows to the Soul"Steven Wilson The Raven That Refused to SingStevie Ray Vaughan The Sky Is CryingSymphony X The Divine Wings of TragedySuper progressive metal album from one of the genre's leading bands. Heavy guitars are complimented by sweeping keybaords and a very strong vocal performance. Bass is audible as well, and plays a good part. As the name suggests, very symphonic and progressive yet catchy with tons of reply value, whether it be the fun "Sea of Lies" or the melodic "Candlelight Fantasia". Class album.

It's like STST but better in every way The screams are far better, the melodic parts are more powerful and hard hitting and the songwriting is the best of the band's career. In fact, this is probably the metalcore album I listen to the most. It's a shame they dropped the style after this album though, because they had something good going on.

Sure, there are long songs are crazy solos but this time they are more restrained and more importantly more MEMORABLE. LaBrie gives one of his strongest performances of his career and the lyrics are meaningful again!! (Woop!) Portnoy is fast and crazy as per usual giving strong, thundering drum beats to the songs. Petrucci also plays one of the best solos of DT on Best Of Times. rHighly reccomended to DT fans!rTop 3 Tracks: A Nightmare to Remember, The Best of Times, The Count of TuscanyDream Theater Chaos in MotionDream Theater Falling Into Infinity DemosAn improvement over the original album, worth getting for die hard DT fans only. The original version of Burning My Soul is 100% better, but most songs just have slight changes that make them less commercial and more... well DT! Don't expect a radical difference though.Dream Theater Images and Words: Live in TokyoDream Theater Dream TheaterReally good stuff. The songs are shorter and more structured with hardly and wankery - everything there is to aid the song. Musically it's heavy, yet proggy but not over the top and there's some classic DT sounds that hark back to I&W.rMangini gives an admirable performance as does Myung (it's so good to be able to hear the bass again) and the orchestral section on Illumination Theory is just outstanding.

Some good fun to be had here on the all instrumental tracks. The band includes the old keyboardest from Dream Theater, Derek Sherinian. Fans of the old DT should enjoy this, although it does get a tad "wanky" in parts and there isn't too much variety in the tracks.
Sweet album, some nice progressive drumming, bass and keyboard present. Would have gotten a 4 had there been more variety.

Really enjoyed this, has a bit of old school Sepultura in there, and Soulfly have added a more death metal element, keeping the music fresh.

Unfortionatly, I think they lost something in the process, for some reason the album seems to drag a bit and I miss the keyboards as they don't play as big of a role here. Also, the harsher vocals don't seem to have the same power as when he used to let his cleans 'soar' on previous albums. In fact my highlights would be the keyboard driven title track and the soft "The Sacrifice" that hark back to the Symphony X of old.rTop 3 Tracks: "Paradise Lost", "The Sacrifice" "Revelation"Symphony X Twilight in OlympusA great Symphony X album, albeit a bit underrated. Full of the usual stuff you'd expect from Symphony X, this has the great musicianship, the cheesy lyrics and the fantastic vocal performance. Sure, it's basically "Divine Wings... Part 2", but that's not necesserily a bad thing. "Smoke and Mirrors" is classic SYM X, as is "Church of the Machine". Unfortionatly, "Orion.." is really too cheesy for my liking and the rest of the album is only just above average.rTop 3 Tracks: "Smoke and Mirrors", "Church of the Machine", "Through the Looking Glass"Symphony X The OdysseySymphony X IconoclastA step up from Paradise Lost, Symphony X strike back with another brilliant prog/power metal release. With songs less forced but just as heavy and catchy, Iconoclast is a strong album with a good vocal delivery and solid instrumentation. Fans of Paradise Lost with enjoy this, as well as fans of their older material. "When All Is Lost" harks back to the album "V", and is a definate highlight.System of a Down MezmerizeSyzygy Realms of EternitySyzygy The Allegory of LightTenacious D Rize of the FenixTesseracT OneTesseracT Altered StateTestament The GatheringTestament Dark Roots of EarthThe Beatles The BeatlesThe Beatles Let It BeThe Beatles Beatles for SaleThe Dear Hunter YellowThe Dear Hunter OrangeThe Dear Hunter Act I: The Lake South, the River NorthThe Dear Hunter Act II: The Meaning of, & All Things Regarding Ms. LeadingThe Dear Hunter GreenThe Dear Hunter BlueThe Dear Hunter The Color SpectrumThe Devin Townsend Band SynchestraThe Dillinger Escape Plan Miss MachineThe Dillinger Escape Plan One of Us Is the KillerThe Infinity Project Mystical ExperiencesThe Jeff Beck Group TruthWait, what the hell?

This is a heavy album with a melodic edge that's much more daring and edgier thab recent releases. Sure, the screaming on this is not good, but it still manages to pack a punch and it's better than the whiny City of Evil and way better than the generic s/t.Ayreon Actual FantasyBeastie Boys To the 5 BoroughsBehemoth DemonicaBehemoth ....From the Pagan VastelandsBehemoth Bewitching The PomeraniaBehemoth GromBehemoth SatanicaBehemoth Thelema.6Behemoth The ApostasyBetween the Buried and Me Between the Buried and MeA brutally good album no doubt, but BTBAM do not show their full potential on here and the musicianship doesn't seem as "tight" as on later releases such as "Alaska" or "Colors".

There's a lot of potential here, but the songwriting and flow just isn't up to scratch. It's not bad by any means, but average by Purple standards. Gillian's vocals seem weak and whilst there are some cool moments, it generally seems uninspired.DevilDriver DevildriverDevilDriver Pray for VillainsDevin Townsend Ziltoid the OmniscientDio Lock up the WolvesDio MagicaDisturbed Ten Thousand FistsDream Theater Falling into InfinityProbably DTs weakest album along with WDADU. Very poor songwriting on a few songs, most notably the straight out pop-rock "You Not Me". The entire album is a greatly simplified down version of DTs sound, without any of the quirkiness of their usual work. Although not a great album as a whole, Myung's bass is impressive and also Petrucci has some nice jazzy-sounding tones on a few songs. Saying that, though, LaBrie's voice sounds poor here and Portnoy does nothing too special.rFor fans only.rTop 3 Tracks: Hell's Kitchen, Lines in the Sand, Just Let Me Breathe Dream Theater OctavariumSimilar to FII, for the most part, Octavarium seems simply too commercial for a band like DT. There is though 2 very solid tracks in the powerful 'Sacrificed Sons' and the epic 'Octavarium'. Unfortionatly, though, these great tracks seem to be shrouded by mediocrity such as the U2 sounding 'I Walk Beside You' and the Muse-y 'Never Enough' and the depressing 'The Answer Lies Within'.
Saying that, it is better than FII and the muddle of Systematic Choas and it's not a bad gateway album to get into the band.
Recommended for newcomers to DT, otherwise look elsewhere.

Encore I was on drugs, Relapse I was flushing them out. I've come to make it up to you now, no more fuckin around. I've got something to prove to fans 'cos I feel like I let 'em down." - Actual words of Eminem from the song "Talkin 2 Myself". Yes, that's right, he acknowledges that he made 2 shit albums and apologises for them! When I heard this, my respect for Em shot right back up. This is a really good comeback album. Gone are the dodgy accents, gone are the dumb lyrics and gone are the commercial sounds. This album is a real throw back to his first 2 albums with the songs having a raw, controversail and emotional edge to them and it really took me by surprise. And this is coming from someone who usually doesn't listen to rap.
Only downside is the choruses get a bit annoying after a while.
Eminem has recovered.

It's definetly a great album and the band give a powerful performance but I can't help but miss the shorter, faster, more energetic 4 min songs off the classic albums. Don't get me wrong, these songs are great, brilliant at times, but they lack what older songs had and Bruce's voice isn't what it used to be. Still a good album, although drags at times due to the lack of energy and length.Isis CelestialJames LaBrie Impermanent ResonanceThis has some good-great songs and is overall solid and LaBrie gives a great melodic performance, but it just lacks balls...

The musicianship itself is probably the best on this album. Although the drums are a bit bland and the guitar is a bit whiny at times and the bass is inaudible, it's still a very entertaining listen. My biggest problem with this release is the vocals. M Shadows is not a great signer, and his clean vocals really drag this down. It's a shame he stopped screaming, as I was one of the few who thought he did well on WTF. Also, the guitar seems way too clean. Oh well, not bad, just could have been so much better after the brilliant WTF.Avenged Sevenfold NightmareA nice little return to form from A7X. It's not perfect by any means ("Danger Line" is cheesy and "Welcome to the Family" is a tad generic), but it's a heck of a step up from the s/t. The songs are more melodic and focused, which helps greatly and there are some nice little progressive leanings in places (the beginning of "Save Me" definetely has been influenced by Portnoy). Unfortionatly, the lyrics still arent great and the first half of the album is a little weak, but the awesome second half makes up for this. 3-3.5.

Still not a bad album, but it is bogged down by awful and cheesy lyrics that are ALL fantasy. (Besides the dull "Repentance", although it is a highlight). On top of this, this is DT at their most "wanky" with long, pointless solos and instrumentals in songs. Also, LaBrie's vocal performance seemed poor - especially on the heavier tracks. On the plus side, there are some interesting parts such as the solo in Repentance and Myung performance is good, but overall it doesn't save the album.rTop 3 Tracks: In the Prescence of Enemies Part 1, Repentance, In the Presence of Enemies Part 2Dream Theater Greatest HitDream Theater Master of PuppetsThe music on this live cover album is almost note perfect. Petrucci emulates both Hammett and Hetfield with incredible precision it's hard to believe it's different people playing. Myung also provides good bass - more audible than Burton on the original, and Rudess I assume helps enhance the guitars, and it sounds seamless. Portnoy is also great playing Lars' drum beats.
It's a shame then, that the vocals of LaBrie simply do not fit this album. They sound SO forced and it really lets the album down greatly.

Hopefully they will learn from this and make a faster,more aggressive album in the 'Endgame' vein next time.

With this record, it seems A7X tried to be more experimental but got lost in too many styles, meaning the album doesn't flow well. Secondly, the vocals are HORRIBLE on this, as are the lyrics (what happened to the awesomeness of WTF??) and make the album sound really lame and juvenile. And the overall sound is just SO generic and predictible it sounds like Nickleback in some parts!! Poor effort.
