Guitar wankery at its worst. First off,the guitar player, Mr. Petrucci is a very skilled player but he just makes it seem like a joke on this album. I wish he had the balls to really dig deep to make something truly innovative and worthwhile. Second, The song writing is terrible. The storyline is not engaging at all as it is too repetitive(we get it, someone died and its a tragedy, geesh how many times do you have to repeat that).I happen to think that it is one of the most overrated albums that there is Metal and Prog.The music on here is obviously played by very capable and competent musicians but they turn this into a pure cheesefest. What in the world is Ruddess doing on Beyond This Life(wtf???).That song alone really makes me really not like this album.I couldn't really finish it all without wanting to stop it already. Guitar and instrument wankery at its worst

I don't really like Dream Theater as a whole, and I really think that their fanbase is oversaturated with annoying people, but I can respect the music they give people.

I agree that this is over-rated, but I think it is still a decent album.

Yep. Uni, you are right about that one

I personally really enjoy this album, but I agree that Dream Theater is pretty overrated as a whole.
