2.0 out of 5 stars What Were They Thinking? July 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
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" (???) I mean the influx of 3rd party "hitmaker" songwriters and just the overall lameness of this album make it one to pass on. Big DT fans (Despite what you may be thinking, I DO consider myself one) will want it for the two numbers mentioned above (which makes it ALMOST worth the price of the CD).

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Dream Theater's best May 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
Falling Into Infinity is the often-maligned album by Dream Theater. Hard-core DT fans will tell you that this is the sell-out album, the one where they abandoned their roots and tried to make radio-friendly music. So it may come as some surprise that this is one of my favorite albums by Dream Theater. It's not perfect, and there are a few rotten apples. It has a lot less technical prowess than many of DT's other albums, but it does feature the best of John Petrucci's guitar playing, and many of the best vocal melodies written by the band. My opinion about technicality is that it is a route towards expression of what the band might aim for, if they choose to take that route; it is not in itself successful music. Fortunately they realized that when they wrote this album.
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kevin out, harmony off. July 12 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The lack that Kevin Moore makes to the Dream Theater is unbelieveble. The feature of the band, who made it to be considered one of the best ones of the world, was the junction between technique and harmony. Without Moore, the both of them had decayed deeply. It's a pity, therefore they're all good instrumentists. It only lacks exactly a good arranjer. So, COME BACK, KEVIN MOORE, AND BRING THE I&W INSPIRATION AGAIN!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Infinite rising Sept. 4 2007
Format:Audio CD
Magnificent! It is all here: heavy metal, rockers, power ballads, good composition, unexcelled musicianship... the works. I can only give it four stars due to the vocals, despite the fact that this is one of James Labrie's better efforts. The man just cannot enunciate in the upper registers. Love this album none the less.

I don't know why I didn't see it before. When I bought FALLING INTO INFINITY over a couple of years ago, I enjoyed it but not enough to keep it running in my CD player constantly, the way I did with SCENES FROM A MEMORY, IMAGES & WORDS, and AWAKE. FII was sitting on my record shelf for quite some time, but recently I have re-discovered the album and realize its genius. This is quite possibly the most diverse and tasteful recording Dream Theater has ever done, and considering the constant pressure they were under from their record label Elektra at the time, they defied the odds and still managed to release an album of solid material.
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cage liner for the rest of the soaring DT catalog Feb. 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
Although I've always been a little skeptical about Dream Theater's ability to TKO any other band on the face of the planet within 12 bars of music (a philosophy strictly adhered to by many of their loyal fans), never did I expect the champs of progressive metal to arrive in the latter half of 1997 with this much fat around their waste. To be fair, I'll say up front that there's some truly stellar material on this album. The problem is that the bulk of Dream Theater's bloated new epic is just plain tired- not only are old innovations now cliches, but there is just such little effort put into three quarters of the songwriting on "Falling Into Infinity" that even die-hard fans should be disappointed. Before I begin, let me backtrack for a second and say that I've always liked Dream Theater, but have been a little baffled at the absurd lengths the band's most loyal supporters have gone to position them as not one of today's greatest metal bands, but one of the best of all time! I mean, from reading the newsgroups and the scores of web pages devoted to the band, you'd really think we had another Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd on our hands. That statement is going to be unfair to a lot of DT supporters, but unfortunately it's the obsessive fans that are the most vocal, and their overpraising comments have turned many fence-sitters into inflammatory Dream Theater bashers. All of which makes it hard for the average metal fan to get an honest opinion about any of the band's work. For the record, I'd just as soon listen to Fates Warning, so you may take what follows in that context. To avoid having this review sound like one big downward spiral, I'll start with FII's strong points. Read more ›
