CD Reviews

They Said It...
Nicholas Alla Koholick | 07/25/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Almost every review here seems to ignore the greatness of "The Silent Man." An acoustic guitar, cello, and James LaBrie together making one of the better ballads in the DT catalog. There's also "Take The Time," a demo version at that, with crisper sound and a few subtle differences. With good reason, however......and now I'll join them."Eve" is amazing. Beautiful. Pulchritudinous. Sweet. Heartwarming. Cool. Dreamy. Out Of This World. Efflorescent. Ambient. Lovely. Astouding. Relaxing. Ad infinitum. There are few words to describe it. Completely instrumental, and yet it speaks volumes about the soul. I can picture myself sitting on a beach at sunset, listening to this as I stare out at the ocean. Spray from the waves lightly caresses my face, and seagulls circle off in the distance. Or perhaps I'm in an endless field of barley, laying flat on my back staring up at a few wisps of cloud up in an azure sky. Whatever.What I'm saying is that DT have crafted a song here that defeats much criticism from non-fans, saying that they are technical machines that create masturbatory music devoid of feeling, simply to show off how good they are. I dare any of them to listen to this piece, stare into a mirror, and say that. I have heard few pieces of music that can evoke a similar mood within my core."Take The Time" is great. "Silent Man" is better. But this disc is worth ten times its price for "Eve.""
Worth it for "Eve" alone...

""The Silent Man" is a great song. This version of "Take The Time" is also quite excellent. But "Eve"...the English language is inadequate to describe this song...it's so good that our vocabulary would need endless synonyms for "beautiful" to accurately convery the sheer beauty of this tune. It is without a doubt one of the greatest instrumental rock songs I've ever heard in my life, and it is brimming with emotional power. It exudes a slow, silent intensity and is tremendously vocal despite the fact that James never even says a word. Simply beautiful. I'd happily pay five times the cost of this disc for "Eve" alone."
Believe the hype

"It is all true: Eve is by some measure the most beautiful rock instrumental I have ever heard, and in some ways Dream Theater's finest moment. It is stately, pure, deep and tear-jerking. The other tracks? Take them or leave them, good stuff as far as I am concerned, but Eve is a landmark. A classic."
