perfect song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/16/14
"someone", I agree with you on every level. Too bad they JUST played the song yesterday at the new tour(and was horribly done, with labrie messing it up at the ending with high and ugly notes and a hard rock solo from petrucci), and I think they'll keep playing it from now on. So sad...
The end of an era. | Reviewer: someone | 1/12/13
This beautifull masterpiece was the swan song for Kevin Moore in DT.It was also the swan song of the"old DT".They were never the same,Kevin was the perfect keyboardist for this band.He is not a souless,melodicless wanker like Rudess.The true classic era of this band is 1985-1994-when the made their greatest music.1995-2009 era is respectable.There new album is just a carbon copy of I&W.
If you like Kevin,check out Chroma Key's Dead air for radios,which is his first solo project after DT,awsome stuff.
In regards to Space Dye Vest,the samples of 'going into the mall" and"that door gets locked at 9 o'clock" are from the Canadian TV series "the fith estate" and the episode is from 1994,"The trouble with Evan".You can find it on YouTube.
SDV was only played live once,but at a Jordan Rudess show,not at a DT concert,in January 2011.It was only Jordan and James LeBrie,John Myung,John Petrucci,Mike Portnoy and Mike Mangini were not a part of it.When Portnoy was still in the band he said it would never be played at a DT show without Kevin Moore.Let us all hope for a Dt reunion show someday with the true classic line-up of DT-Moore,Portnoy,LeBrie,Petrucci and Myung.And at that show maybe this masterpiece can be played live.

This is the most atmospheric, sad and emotional song I have ever heard. It's brilliant and miserable at the same time. The melody just sets a mood and it stays to the very end.
Very emotional song | Reviewer: Marcus
Congratulations, Dream Theater! You just made me, an emotionless robot, cry! Bravo!
