As a fan of prog rock, I surprise even myself at rating FII as my favorite DT album. I don't need to harp on the fact that they tried for a more radio-friendly approach (there are 70+ reviews about that already). I simply present to you, the reader/listener, an excellent album, well produced, and full of crafty rock songs. As much as I love Awake, Change of Seasons, Images and Words and Scenes from a Memory (and BOY, do I LOVE those), I grudgingly rank FII as my favorite disc. Why? Hard to say. Upon early listens, New Millenium, Peruvian Skies and You not Me were instant favs... but after a few years, I must say, Trial of Tears, Lines in the Sand and particularly Anna Lee rank among some of the best prog-metal that I've heard. Anna Lee is the one song I always skipped (you know the one I mean - when you really dig a new album, you like most of it but always skip that one track... track #10 was that one on this album for me, for a couple of years..) but now it is one of my favorites. Simply a gorgeous song. And Trial of Tears is an outstanding closer, not at all the overblown, overlong song that prior reviews would have you believe. Once again, I can't express to you just how much I love all of DT's output, but I also can't express just how much I love to air drum, air guitar, and sing along to these tracks. La Brie, Portnoy, Petrucci and Myung have never sounded better, and for interest's sake, the Rush influence is unmistakeable on this album. I heartily recommend it.

Ever since the '70's Progressive Rock era paved the way for overblown '80's self-indulgence, the artistic quality to music has been lost to hyped-up, radio-friendly, instantly-popular hit singles that have the shelflife of a dying horse. The only relatively new band that has managed to inspire the spirit of musical experimentation is Tool. That's what makes Dream Theater's music a breath of fresh air, and "Falling into Infinity" has to be one of their best albums. There are recognizable elements of Queensryche, King Crimson, Yes, and early Metallica, all blended together to showcase great musical talent on the part of the band members, both in a technical sense and in an artistic sense. The tempo changes are reminiscent of Rush (maybe not as complex, but still just as explosive), the juxtaposition of ethereal synthesizers with heavy guitar licks (heavy both in distorted crunch and in the energy and feeling the players put into it), and the great lyrics and vocals come together seamlessly in songs like "Hollow Years" and "New Millennium." Not quite loud enough to appeal to chronic metalheads, but the musical proficiency of this band is enough to attract true fans of progressive rock. This is a wonderful album from a wonderful band who put the art back in art-rock. It's an album that is destined to take your way of thinking about music to a different plane. Listen to it!

For one reason or another, "Falling Into Infinity" seems to be one of the more unpopular releases among fans of Dream Theater....at least that is how I understand it.Well, maybe I'm too soft, but I feel this is a GREAT cd. The first track is real addicting....."New Millennium". The second track, "You Not Me", seems to have a kind of commercially sound to it.However, the highlight of the whole CD in my opinion is the beautiful ballad, "Take Away My Pain". Talk about a tear jerker.The last song is a 13 minute epic, "Trial Of Tears", written by the bassist, John Myung.I will admit though, if you have heard any of Dream Theater's other recordings first, such as "Image & Words"....then "Falling Into Infinity" may take a couple of listens to really get use to. This is totally different from what Dream Theater has ever released. Yet, it is still a great recording from these Masterminds of prog-metal.

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. They do tend to channel themselves very narrowly into a fine narrow line of Hard Rock, that was until i heard this disc and then i found them completely different as far as a band...No they are capable of doing some very fine ballads, and why they dont continue to do that in more of their later discs is well beyond me as a listener and writer of their material. They are a far more capable and distinguished band but simply choose to play the harder material..As for FALLING INTO INFINITY well it simply is a VERY WELL ROUNDED CD, A disc for folks with a want for far more in a CD than straight ahead R&R . It is quite capable of delivering that R&R but it also has the more mellow material which a family man may want...IT rocks in a family way...Spigomars

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.
