2.5/5 ·
For me, this album is indeed among the weakest on Dream Theater's Career. Sure it still has some very good moments that makes it worth having. The best songs for me are "New Millenium", which is one of the few songs that deserves to be called "prog metal" in this album; and "Trial of Tears", which is a great progressive songs, but has just about no metal in it; I also like very much "Peruvian Skies", which is mostly a metal song with very little progressive element in it (and I believe the inteded "metal single" or "metal hit" for this album, which I would find a little bit weak compared to other such songs in their discography); and "Hell's Kitchen", wich is a nice prog metal instrumental piece (more on the progressive side than on the metal side). And even this songs aren't up to the best songs Dream Theater has released on their other albums. The rest of the songs are just weak for me, some of them just metal light songs with nothing particularly interesting (You not me, Burning my Soul, and Just let me Breath), and others being simply ballads with not metal nor prog in them, and even as simple ballads they are just no good (Hollow Years, Take Away my Pain, and Anna Lee). And I left for the end "Lines in the Sand"; now, many of the songs on this album are not particularly good, as I just said, but neither are they particularly bad, just not interesting, however this last song is just the most annoying song in this album, and one of the most annoying ones on their discography... this one is prog metal indeed, but that doesn't make it any good for me; the song in general is not particularly good, but the vocals are just very hard to bear, specially the chourus parts which I just can't stand.

My rating 2.5 stars.
