3 stars This album made me loose my interest and my love for Dream Theater. After the two brilliant album Images and Words and Awake this album was eagerly anticipated. I was really dissapointed, as Dream Theater seemed to have lost their progressive touch on this one. This is not to say that this album is not progressive which would be far from the truth, itīs just that the grand production from the previous albums were gone and the very special melodic vocal lines were gone too. Falling Into Infinity is more hard rock inspired and simple than Images and Words and Awake. This is such a shame as I feel that Dream Theater were at their peak, but I guess good things donīt last forever.

Falling Into Infinity is not a bad album though, and songs like New Millennium, Lines in the Sand and Peruvian Skies are really good songs. Many of the other songs a very forgettable though and there are even some really bad songs like You Not Me and Take Away My Pain. The album ends on 3 stars because itīs very mediocre compared to other Dream Theater releases.

For me this was the start of the end of my devoted interest in Dream Theater.

UMUR | 3/5 |
