4 stars Dream Theater forth studio album from 1997 named Falling into infinty remains one of my fav DT albums, no doubt. To some of the reviewers this albums doesn't reach the beauty and power of Images and words or Awake, but to me is an excellent album that proves that DT is capable to explore new grounds in prog music, specialy in prog metal, and to be more precise that is all about in prog music to creat, to explore, to find new arrangements and to give to the music a new understanting even the sounds here sometimes is more mainstream than on previouses releases, and with this album DT did it again, big time. I will mentioning that the musiciaship is awesome as always, tight and strong, with beautiful and very fine moments as like : the opening track New Millennium, Peruvian Skies (here John Petrucci simply shines, that's why is considered one of the best guitar players in last 20 years, here he proves why),the smooth instrumental piece Hell's Kitchen, Lines in the Sand , Take away my pain and the last piece and the most experimental one from here Trial of Tears. I always was impressed by John Myung and by abilities on bass , but here on some pieces simply kick ass, excellent musician, and , at least as I find it, one of the best bass players ever, simply because not only he made complicated bass lines and arrangements, but also because of the ethic of the instrument - he remains my fav DT musician. So a strong album and excellent adittion to any collection, DT remains DT all the way with this album. 4 stars without any doubts
