New Millenium (7/10): The keyboard intro is a little whacko, but the guitar/bass parts that follow are great. Overall, it is an okay song.
You Not Me (5/10): James LaBrie's attempts to sound rough aren't convincing. The song as a whole is very uninteresting.
Peruvian Skies (9/10): Beautiful chorus, a good mix of heavy and light moments, and a great guitar solo.
Hollow Years (8/10): Call it mainstream, call it sell-out, call it catchy... I don't care. This is a great song, and even greater live. It does have a very mainstream sound to it, with a mostly accoustic guitar and catchy chorus line.
Burning My Soul (6/10): Has some good riffs, but the vocals are annoying, and the lyrics cheesy.
Hell's Kitchen (9/10): An instrumental with some great soaring guitar work and weird but good key changes. One of DT's best instrumentals.
Lines in the Sand (10/10): Starts off with some back and forth change between a lonely synthesizer and a lonely distorted guitar.Read more ›
Speaking of diversity, I was just amazed how so many musical styles are on this album. I'm surprised I didn't see it or hear it the first time. You get a little bit of everything of what makes DT great on this album: from the progressive epics ("New Millennium," "Lines in the Sand," "Trial of Tears"), to the ballads ("Hollow Years," "Take Away My Pain," "Anna Lee"), to the crunchy heavy metal ("Peruvian Skies," "Burning My Soul"), to straight-up hard rock ("Just Let Me Breathe," "You Not Me"), and the token instrumental ("Hell's Kitchen"), just about anything you can think of is on here. Not to mention that there are traces of funk during "Lines in the Sand," a Latin-inspired acoustic riff that plays throughout "Hollow Years," and nice use of odd times in "Take Away My Pain" and wind chimes in "Trial of Tears" which are reminiscent of Rush's "Xanadu." You get all of that and a bag of chips.
Some have complained that the lyrics are not as good as on previous albums, but I beg to differ.Read more ›
To avoid having this review sound like one big downward spiral, I'll start with FII's strong points. The good news is that a few more classics are added to the Dream Theater canon in "New Millenium" and "Hell's Kitchen". Many may protest the inclusion of the latter, but I feel it's one of the few times the band have achieved a somber emotional vibe without lapsing into syrupy melodrama. Of all the influences John Petrucci attempts to absorb into his repertoire, the Satch-like riffs on "Hell's Kitchen" (among others) are one of the few that don't sound contrived. Other obvious influences that sound little more than derivative are Queen, Styx, Pink Floyd and even Dream Theater themselves ("Burning My Soul" is a total rewrite of "Pull Me Under"). Overall the shorter songs are far more provocative and consistent than the longer titles, a trend which seems at odds with the epic virtuosity the band are famed for.Read more ›

While it is true that i have a VERY HARD TIME to chastise the group called DREAM THEATER, there are points upon which i would be able to state possible points of improvement. Read morePublished 7 days ago by spigomars
CD was in new condition. Jewel case was cracked. Music was pleasing to the ears.Published 18 months ago by Samuel Vera
Not very excellent album for DT but still very good. I think it has been underrated because of the behind story.Published 18 months ago by Felix

I can safely say in my opinion that dream theater rocks the house. james labrie is a great singer followed by Petrucci's off the hook solo's, as well as mike's crazy drumming... Read morePublished on Sept. 1 2006 by Fabio Sa
Ok from what I've noticed, everyone seems to blame the newcomer Derek Sherinian for this lame excuse of a living album that Dream theater has created. Read morePublished on July 18 2004 by BurningFate
Aside from two great songs, those being New Millenium and Lines in the Sand (Doug Pinnick is The Man), this album sounds like the band's attempt at a more "Commercial DT"... Read morePublished on July 2 2004 by Nathaniel Slautich
