Artist : Dream Theater
Country : USA
Release : Greatest Hit
Year : 2008
Genre : Heavy Metal
File Type : mp3 320


Here's comes Dream Theater with their first greatest hit collection. At least it's not another live set. I guess in between studio albums, this just makes sense. While this is geared to the first time listener to capture the sound of this remarkable group, it still has a few elements for the die-hard fan. The remix's are certainly the key here if you want to see how they are polished up. The one unreleased track 'To Live Forever' would be the reason to buy this if you don't already have a studio mix of it. While the remix's are great, one has to wonder why they chose those songs and maybe not several more from their next couple of albums. I think 'To Live Forever' is included because it is LaBrie's welcome into the band. The song that should have made it onto this collection is 'The Way It Used to Be'. But it's not here and one has to wonder why. Plus I don't understand the logic behind the edits of songs like 'Solitary Shell'. Taking it to the edit form just kills the song overall.
