Yes, I'm making a Dream Theater review, just don't expect me to make more. This the only Dream Theater album I have and I honestly have no idea why I have it. I heard "Pull Me Under" then I got the whole album. Well that escelated kinda quickly.
Images and Words has this bipolar sound, it can be heavy at times and really soft at other times. Not in the Opeth kinda way though, Opeth is much heavier and less synthier (Is that even a word?).
"Pull Me Under" is one hell of a song. My favorite part of the song is the part with the palm muting, it just sounds kinda thrashy and I really like it. Although, I hate the way it ends. It's all loud and heavy and then, BOOM, silence.
"Another Day" is kinda cheesy. In a sorta happy kinda way. It reminds me of a Journey song for some reason. It's a sorta cheesy ballad like song with a nice solo at the end, fucking weird but still a nice song. I'm not going to lie, this album has it's cheesy moments. Like on "Take the Time", the first two minutes of the song are filled with weird funky shit. The rest of the song is great though.
My favorite song of this album is "Under a Glass Moon". It sounds kinda like something off "...And Justice for All" mixed with a semi-power metal sound. The only song I don't like is "Wait for Sleep". I find it boring and annoying as fuck. Boo me all you want, I don't give a shit.
Overall, I like this album. It's a bit on the quirky side but I still like it. Except for "Wait for Sleep", I hate that song. I hate Mike Portnoy too. He sued his ex-bandmates, that's pretty fucking low class. I won't deny the fact that he did an excelent job drumming on this album though.
