Customer Review

on 19 October 2011
Some of these discs alone would stand the price you pay for the pack...

This is one of the best offers ever made for any fan of rock, progressive rock and music lovers in general.

Images and Words was a breakthrough album that back in 1992 changed the history of Rock/Metal genre. With wolderful melodies, complex but intriguing arrangements, this is THE album that set Dream Theater in the Pantheon of Progressive Rock Industry, and redefined the progressive genre in general, inspiring dozens of bands that followed the pattern.

Awake was the incredible follow up, that had a darker and more powerful sound, but still it was an awesome disc, a great match to his predessessor...

Falling Into Infinity is the least complex and the most commercial release of Dream Theater, having the most accessible songs and melodies, yet it does deliver the same magic as all the other albums.

Scenes from a Memory is the second disc that is considered a Masterpiece for the band, after Images and Words. What can be said for this album? It is the most coherent, melody driven, breathtaking storyteller to date. It is the one album that once you press the play button, be prepared not to stop listening until all 77+ minutes are being played. Masterpiece is too poor of a word to describe it...

Train Of Thought is an incredible album that was written in just a couple of weeks or less, with the intention to capture that great feeling Dream theater have playing live and playing powerful songs. So here it is, an album of wonderful, complex melodies (when you hear it, it will be impossible to believe that all these melodies and structures and orchestrations etc where written in less that 2 weeks, but that is the story of Dream theater composing greatness). Power, in your face metal, yet full of great melodies.

All in all, this pack is a great offer, even for people like me it is too hard to resist. After all, even if I own all the albums in it, I will buy it and have it given as a gift in people I admire the most. what a great gift that will be for your collection or your friends...

Go buy it, its a no-brain bargain.
