Guest review by
The Silent Man
This EP contains about a hour of excellent music. It is divided into two parts: a 23 minutes long title-track and some covers taken from the famous live performance at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London on January 31st, 1995.

This studio version of the song 'A Change Of Seasons' has immediately reached the 1st position in my top three. In spite of its length, this is actually my favorite song of all time. When I didn't know it, I always thought that 23 minutes were really too much. How wrong I was! This is a true masterpiece: in my opinion, it's the best song Dream Theater have ever written.

I love the 24 minutes song which has many rhythm changes and is never boring. Live songs are very well performed. They are masters.

The title track is pretty much the marvellous centrepiece of this EP, and it really is a pinnacle of DT's work.I could listen to it for hours.

Horrible EP, the first song is lame and the covers were not necessary. Probably the weakest point of DT.
Never trust a junkie.
