Review of Dream Theater's album Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory.

Metropolis Pt 2: Scenes From A Memory (Elektra)
Rating: 9

January 2000. DREAM Theater now admit they made too many concessions with last year's 'Falling Into Infinity" album. Working with Bon Jovi cohort Desmond Child didn't suit them, nor did the shorter tunes. So with this concept album, they've gone in completely the opposite direction. A breathtaking combination of jaw-dropping musicianship, uncompromisingly complex song structures and macabre story-telling, it compares favourably with QueensrĜche's seminal 'Operation: Mindcrime' LP.
