...this album is strange. Some tracks sound Dream Theater some not. New Millenium, Lines in the Sand are Dream Theater are Dream Theater, no doubt. What about You Not Me and Burning My Soul? They don't sound DT!!! But are still good... You can find some webbing songs, Hollow Years, Anna Lee, Just Let Me Breathe, Take Away My Pain, Trial of Tears and Peruvian Skies. Only Take Away My Pain sounds good but who am I to say? And of course instrumental Hell's Kitchen: what for this kind of song? If You want I recommend songs New Millennium, You Not Me, Take Away My Pain and Burning My Soul not anything else!

If you have a narrow contextual view of what a DT album should sound like then you may very well be disappointed by this album. Too many bands today find their own sound and they stick to it, to the extent that all their songs come off sounding the same. As a result it all just becomes too boring. DT however on this album venture into many modes, and it is for the better. The songs range from the out and out head-bangers like 'Burning My Soul' to the almost too pop-ish 'Hollow Years' or 'Anna Lee', through to your classic hard prog-rock song like the 13 min. long 'Trial Of Tears'. Through it all DT does not lose sight of their prog-rock roots, or their own sound. I liked this album right off. It's interesting, it's virtuosic, it's beautiful. And there is no shortage of Mr. Portnoy's signature double-kick-drum-16th. note frenetic drumming style. The cuts 'New Millenium', 'Lines In The Sand', and 'Trial Of Tears' are some of the best-written prog-rock tunes out there, right up there with the best of them. Of course, sometimes it's fairly easy to hear their roots and influences from such bands as Yes, Rush, UK, and on one cut (Lines In The Sand) they availed themselves of the vocal additions of Doug Pinnick of King's X. But so what? It's not out and out plagiarism. They are just using certain sounds to advantage, in all the right places at the right time, while paying musical homage to their predecessors. They don't wave these influences in your face like some sort of banner. DT knows exactly where their roots are. In the end it still moves me musically, and that's what matters. One of the other reviewers apparently didn't care much for 'Hell's Kitchen'. One has to remember that in context this song was actually an instrumental part of another song that they played live, but here on this album it was presented as a separate song in it's own right. For me I find 'Hell's Kitchen' to be a beautiful song. It borders on "space rock". If that's not your thing then so be it. I like the way it adds yet another flavour to this already varied and interesting album. If there is one down side it is the song 'Take Away My Pain', a song written by John Petrucci upon the death of his father. It is just a bit too pop-ish for my taste, but the lyrics certainly move. The line "I guess I won't be coming home again" certainly hits home for anyone who has had to watch a loved one die in hospital. Then there are the vocals. Well, what can I say. It is your usual heavy metal quaver that is typical of so many groups in this style. Mr. LaBrie does it and he does it fairly well. Enough said. Is this album "strange"? Maybe, if you're used to the singular sounding one-trick-pony bands that overpopulate the music business these days. DT is a heavy prog-rock band, but still I think it would be hard for the pencil pushers at the radio stations to try and pigeon hole this album. I doubt you'll hear much of this album on your local classic rock radio station, and that's just the way I like it. These guys take the best of rock, prog and throw in a bit of pop along with the virtuosity of the jazz fusion crowd, and have produced an album that I will be playing over and over for a long time. I only just bought this CD and already it's one of my favourites.
