4.0 out of 5 stars The Beginning of my Prog Love Affair, 16 May 2008
This review is from: Images And Words (Audio CD)
Through the mid to late 80s, I was listening to a lot of metal ranging from Def Leppard, through Motley Crue and to Metallica. However, when I bought this album in 1992, my musical tastes changed forever.

As I'm sure has been mentioned, the slowly building drive of first track "Pull Me Under" hooked me instantly and it became one of my favourites. Track two "Another Day" is the only one didn't like and still don't and I think this is because it feels like it could have been done by anyone. Comparing this to all the other tracks seems like listening to a different group. From then on, though, things just get better.

I remember listening through the more "widdly" tracks and being totally gobsmacked that people could play like that, especially having no musical talent myself. From the time I first listened to this album, I have been on a constant search for similar music which has the same impact on me that this did. There have been some close calls, but this still sticks out as one of the best.

I have listened to this album so much, that a number of the tracks are losing their shine, but it still contains my favourite ever Dream Theater track "Under a Glass Moon" and others like "Take the Time", "Wait for Sleep" and "Metropolis" can still hold their own against any music that I've bought since... A definite classic.
