Extreamly good album!!!

From: Alberto Date: August 20, 2001 at 6:58
A little bit too cold as rocking (more than the former Images & Words), but it still kicks a lot and some songs are incredibly well-composed. Real real good...

From: Chris Date: September 29, 2001 at 13:42
Dream Theater opts to go the dark route with their writing and LaBrie's vocals on this outing. I must admit that it works and works well. This is a high quality disc with excellent prog metal leanings. Highly recommended.

From: Lullä Milanese Date: July 8, 2002 at 13:14
Great album! Those guys love to show their skills. I prefer rock n'roll, 3, 4 chords.. but still it's a good album. I love the last track, Space-Dye Vest.

From: Baris Date: September 5, 2002 at 7:28
A really exciting record. "Caught In A Web", "Erotomania", "The Silent Man", "Lie", "Lifting Shadows of a Dream", and "Space Dye Vest" are the ones I liked most. Guitar sound of Petrucci is so clear and fine. It worths to add to your archive...

From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: January 2, 2003 at 13:59
Mas duro que el images pero creo que se superan lo cual era muy muy dificil. Gran obra maestra del metal progresivo. Destacar todo el grupo todos son virtuosistas.

From: blueblood Date: September 18, 2003 at 19:25
Si señor, otro gran disco que no hacia sino reafirmar a dream theater como uno de los mejores grupos de metal progresivo de la historia. En mi opinion no es mejor que images and words, aunque tiene temas que son para quitarse el sombrero.

From: dieci seghe Date: November 11, 2003 at 16:57
il miglior disco di sempre dei dream consigliato a tutti gli amanti della bella musica

From: Date: November 18, 2003 at 4:02
more practice mr.petrucci!!! bad technic, u must try to find my cd, listen my music, listen my finger dancing on my guitar, try to learn!!! i'm Rhoma Irama the king of dangdut from Indonesia

From: Bill Date: January 23, 2004 at 7:41
Can you imagine having to follow up an album as amazing as Images and Words? Well DT accomplished that with an equally incredible album. A Mind Beside Itself (tracks 4, 5 and 6) is the albums centerpiece and displays increidible musicicianship (instrumental Erotomania) epic intensity (Voices) and lyrical genuis (The Silent Man). Caught In A Web and Lifting Shadows Off A Dream still stand as some of Dream Theater finest moments. After Images and Words, be sure to aquire this one.

From: Alejandro Date: February 3, 2004 at 16:21
Cuantas bandas pueden darse el lujo de editar dos joyas consecutivas? D.T lo logra con creces.De hecho LIFTING,SILENT MAN,EROTOMANIA,CAUGHT IN A WEB,no suenan a otra cosa que nos sea evoluciòn.La producciòn, a la altura de los mùsicos que una vez màs descollan casi sin proponèrselo,en especial Portnoy y Petrucci,que son la escencia pura de D.T.A La Brie,suena absolutamente integrado y esbozando todo lo que demostraria en los discos siguientes.IMPRESCINDIBLE.10/

From: mauricio Date: February 6, 2004 at 10:41
el images no fue una cuestión de suerte, sino sólo el inicio de una serie de buenos albums. awake es sin duda la reafirmación de la mejor banda de metal progre en el mundo. 6am. tiene sin duda un comienzo apoteósico, un clásico para los bateros. erotomania está a la altura de ytse jam (hasta quizá la supere).

From: Rodimus Date: March 4, 2004 at 20:11
This is Dream theater at their best. Making a great album that has not one even so-so song. All the songs are well thought out, and sound good. A mind beside itself is a masterpiece of music. This is definitely and album you cannot leave home without.

From: shamgar Date: March 6, 2004 at 1:59
This is a stud of an album. These guys wrote and played a super tight album. Words don't begin to describe how awesome and talented these guys are. If you don't have this album, get it. Probably their best album overall.

From: bundy Date: March 12, 2004 at 22:46
One of the few bands that hasn't choked off their follow-up to an album that is a masterpiece. Very unfortunate that this was the last studio album to feature their keyboardist and main lyricist Kevin Moore. Their lyrics really seemed to suffer after this album.

From: meradona Date: April 18, 2004 at 12:02
lo que hay que leer, uno aqui arriba que le dice a petrucci que mas practica, mecagoen los musicos fracasaos de los huevos, PETRUCCI IS GOD

From: Geoff Date: March 5, 2005 at 18:40
I also have this one and it sounds very similar to 'Images and words'. I still like James' voice, the musicians are top notch and there are some great moments, but IMO they're just too few and far between. I'm sure for prog fans this and 'Images and words' are stunning... but unfortunately to simple me I don't get 'em.

From: liben Date: March 6, 2005 at 9:01
man....its a "DREAM THEATER" album.....need i say more?...they rock!buy second thoughts on it

From: hair metal again Date: July 28, 2011 at 1:12
very good release by DREAM THEATER with fantastic skill and excellent sound once seems that the band has found its identity and direction for good!the only problem is that the songs arent catchy enuff!it really worths buying it though

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 16, 2014 at 20:36
Third studio album of the band and still delivering top notch Prog Metal songs but not as solid ones as the ones from "Images And Words"(their best effort ever!!!) tracks in here for me are "Caught In A Web" & "Lifting Shadows Of A Dream"...some other good moments are tracks 1,5,8,9 & enjoyable release...90/100
