Progressive rock. In this one they've taking a step away from the "traditional" prog-rock and have written a few more "songs." They are pieces that would be a little more radio friendly, but still rock.
It's by Dream Theater, of course it's a great album! It's not as "progressive" as the other albums, but it's still worth buying. "Hell's Kitchen" is definitely my favorite track on the cd, one of Dream Theaters best songs.
More straight-forward album from DT.some of the songs sound a bit too ordinary but on the other hand they are played well and with style.i liked the production:very "natural" sounds,not too hi-fi.derek sherinian does good work with keyboards but i think kevin moore was important member of DT as far as songwriting goes.petrucci does good guitar work here too.some of the songs contain hes most soulful playing to date.
