The acclaimed band’s first-ever best-of compilation (2 cd set) spans 14 years of progressive hard rock and features rare edits and b-sides including three new remixes of “Pull Me Under,” “Take The Time” and “Another Day”.
After recently celebrating the band’s 20-year anniversary, Dream Theater returns with its first -ever best-of collection. Spanning 1991-2005, the two-disc set contains rare single edits, B-sides and a trio of new remixes that spotlight that band’s nonpareil musicianship, complex arrangements and amazing songwriting.
Referring to Dream Theater’s first and only major radio hit, “Pull Me Under,” the collection features more than two hours of progressive hard rock from James LaBrie (vocals), John Myung (bass), John Petrucci (guitar/vocals), Mike Portnoy (drums/vocals) and Jordan Rudess (keyboards).
The collection’s 22 songs are split evenly between two discs, which are divided into “The Dark Side” (the metallic) and “The Light Side” (the melodic). Filled with some of the band’s most sinister sounds, the first disc lives up to the billing of “The Dark Side.” Longtime fans will appreciate the abundance of alternative versions of classic tracks, including single edits of “Lie,” “Home,” and “Misunderstood.” Disc One concludes with two tracks from the band’s 2005 album Octavarium: “The Root Of All Evil” and “Sacrificed Sons.” The second disc, “The Light Side,” spotlights the band’s melodic side and features an alternate mix of “Through Her Eyes,”
