Some good songs, but I don't really like the voice.

From: Daniel Meneses Date: April 16, 2001 at 10:52
This was a very good start for Dream Theater and there are some classics (ytse jam, fortune in lies and afterlife) unfortunetly it lacks a polished production but aside of that it's a great album for prog metal lovers.

What happened to, Its About Music?

From: annihilator Date: March 13, 2002 at 23:40
Great music, clasic Dream Theater. One problem...this guys voice is sick. Makes the music unbearable after a few songs.

From: motley Date: April 23, 2002 at 20:42
The thinnest voice ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but a great album

From: Bora Date: September 5, 2002 at 6:35
SUPER as other Theatre masterpieces (My favourites: "Ytsie Jam", "Light Fuse and...", "After Life" and the exciting intro of "The Ones Who Help..."). Nonetheless, Dominici's vocal falls behind the personal talents of the rest of the band members. So it is understood that it was a very good idea to bring the great singer La Brie into the band.

Nice album as the Theatre's other albums. (My favourites: Ytsie Jam, Light Fuse and Get Away, After Life, and the exciting intro of The Ones Who Help...). But Dominici's vocal is not enough good and falls behind the personal talent of the rest of the band members. So it is understood that it was a very good idea to bring the great singer La Brie into the band.

From: Baris Date: September 10, 2002 at 1:33
Musical quality is perfect. But the singer's thin voice is really disturbing. If there was James La Brie on vocals, it would be greater. Nonetheless the album is a classic as a whole. "Ytsie Jam" and "After Life" are my favourites. I also liked the intro of "The Ones Who Help ...". If you like DT kind of music, you must have this...

From: Noble Savage Date: October 31, 2003 at 20:15
Great album ,especially for a debut.I find the vocals Very good(although not a crisp or clean as La Bries),also,Dominici(vocalist) wrote the lyrics to 'afterlife'-a great tune.Check out 'only a matter of time' as well,it is basically the title song of the album and is a great song for sure...Great overall album.

From: Jimbo Date: November 22, 2003 at 21:02
There are a bunch of comments above about Dominici's vocals being flawed, but I think his voice is what raises this CD from "techno-rambling" to something much more human. If there is any drawback to prog-rock in general and most other DT albums in particular, it's that everything is so antiseptic sounding and heartless it's hard to get too worked up about. Thank goodness something on this CD sounds like it came from the real world.

From: Date: December 8, 2003 at 21:16
Loved this one right from the start, one of the greatest cd's of all time. I like the criticized singer Dominici a lot on this album, would have loved to hear the other albums with his voice. I don't understand what DT is doing these days - they should have stayed here (with this album and the 2nd). Bringing back Kevin Moore on keys would probably help. Whatever ... you have to have this.

From: Bill Date: January 23, 2004 at 6:54
There will always be complaints about Charlie Dominici's vocals, but the extreme DT fan can see past them, as they are the only people who would pick this up. As for the music, it is simply incredible. It's easy to hear how they evolved from this to their future material. A Fortune In Lies, Ytse Jam, The Killing Hand, Light Fuse and Get Away and Afterlife are among the greatest DT songs. Only A Matter of Time is one of the many places where we truly miss Kevin Moore's lyrical input...

Editar este disco en 1989,contra la coriente de los estilos en boga, (Hard-GLam, etc),ya nos demostraba que esta no serýa una banda mÓs.Y sin una gran producci˛n,la banda sale a flote a base de talento.El punto flojo,sin duda,fue el vocalista correcto si,pero falto de personalidad,atributo que La Brie traeria consigo.Por lo demÓs brillantes FORTUNE,STATUS,la gloriosa YTSE(carta de presentacion de los m¨sicos)AFTERLIFE,absolutas perlas.La m¨sica agradecida.8.50/10.carro_martin2000@yahoo.com.ar

Not a bad album. Sounds almost Rush-ish at times especially the track Status Seeker. A good start to an impressive catalog. Not really my type of music as I need to be in a certain mood to put these guys in my cd player.

From: Davison Bullock Date: February 26, 2005 at 15:44
Bought this LP in a HMV record sale for a bargain 99p back in 1989 before they hit the big time This album is a true Masterpiece. Continual play with Queensryche Operation Mindcrime. Let me tell you guys that Charlie Dominici was the best singer Dream Theater ever had PERIOD. This album was so original and fresh. I was gutted when Charlie was axed I preferred Charlies AOR ish, original theatrical vocal approach which IMHO made the songs.

From: meradona Date: February 27, 2005 at 6:20
es un buen album, pero decir que el Charlie este es mejor que James La brie, me parece que es tener el oido taponado, para mi es mejor cualquier otro disco de los theater, en especial images and words y train of through

From: SOC2004 Date: June 2, 2005 at 18:26
Could you believe it this album is better than Images and Words? Dream Theater we're still fresh and hadn't been corrupted by being tagged as the Kings of Prog. Songs like The Killing Hand and Ones Who Help Set the Sun are amazing pieces of work that could have translated to later Dream Theater albums if keyboardist Kevin Moore hung around. Instead, he left in 1994 and the band collapsed until Jordan Rudess hooked up with them in 1999.

I finally picked this up after years of procrastination. It almost reminds me of Fates Warning. The music is phenomenal, but some of the changes are a bit too abrupt for my tastes, I prefer smoother transitions. The singer isn't as horrible as I was led to believe, but he does have a tendency to drift off key. All in all, an enjoyable listen but IMHO not the best DT release, but nor does it suck. It also is a bit more pure prog than the LaBrie version of DT.

From: dokkenfan Date: January 9, 2006 at 1:06
This album is pretty fucking good. It is very different from stuff with James put it is a good album.

From: hair metal again Date: July 27, 2011 at 2:46
excellent debut by the great DREAM THEATER with amazing musicianship ,clever hooks and nice melodies.i really like their sound which isnt heavy at all!highlights are "afterlife","the killing hand" and "status seeker".in my book this is essential
