"Falling Into Infinity" is Dream Theater's fourth full-length album and it was released in 1997, following the very complicated "Awake". So what could you expect more from this record? Surely a lot seeing the amazing work produced on "Awake". And their music meets again fans' expectations while bringing new people into their pool of listeners. Why? Let's see...

record label had nothing to do with how they sounded on this album and the sort of songs they wrote. It was the band themselves that wanted to go down that road.

Well, you see, I heard a bit different story. But at the end of the day, you might be right.

No Ravenous is right. The band told about this in their documentary "The Score So Far..." 20th Anniversary Documentary from the Score live DVD. They said they couldn't release some songs that they intended to be on the CD. Raise the Knife is one of those songs (they played the song on the Score DVD). See the clip here (starts at 1:40 minutes).

Sadly underrated album. I loved it. Not as good as I&W but near to Awake in my tastes.

The bulk of this album ranges from great (Peruvian Skies, New Millennium, Just Let Me Breathe) to some of their very best work (Trial of Tears, Hell's Kitchen, Lines in the Sand). In-between are some lesser songs and maybe one too many ballads (all of which I find enjoyable). Yeah yeah, "You Not Me" is weak, but hardly bad enough to ruin the entire album.

Couple the overall very high quality of the songs with one of their best production jobs and you have what I consider to be a top 5 DT album.
