  • Hello my name is Mike I would like to say a few words about the album ONCE IN A LIVETIME.I had heard the name DREAM THEATER before I bought this album but never heard them.I bought the album in 1999 a year after it was released.I only bought the album because of the album cover the use of a human beings head as a arena that was very cool but what was on the album totally blew me away.I had never heard so much raw power and such emotion poured into each song before.I know the vocals could have been just a little bit better but I give JAMES LABRIE a A+ he pours his heart and soul into every song he sings.Each song tells a story.I will say one thing for someone who disses on DREAM THEATER what one song lacks in lyrics it makes up in music and what it lacks in music it makes up in lyrics.JOHN MYUNG plays a great bass.JOHN PETRUCCI plays great guitar.MIKE PORTNOY well he’s just god behind them drums.I went on to buy all the albums and I listen to them at work.DREAM THEATER’s music is the best I’ve heard in a long time and I listen to all kinds of music.They are always putting out new material for the fans to hear and see.They don’t worry about selling out or making a top fourty song they care more about making sure the fans are satisfied and that’s what sets them apart from all the other groups I’ve heard and seen in the past.So if you’ve seen there name and thought of picking up one of there albums I hope this review helps you in your choosing to buy a album and maybe getting into there music like I did.Thank you from me and all the guys at DREAM THEATER for taking the time to read this review.Michael Aaron Bushnell
