    This also is a reference to their influences growing up as the coming lyrics signify. Dream Theater does something similar. In other words, this song is one HUGE crescendo. Is it a good teaching tool?

    Is the transcription accurate? I take this song for what it is, and why it was written as it was, and that's that. In Vacant, another person is speaking about the victim, and in Medicate, the victim is waking up again. It encourages replaying especially with headphones, as some things will not be caught otherwise and it really drives home the fact that artistically this is an album, not just a collection of singles.

    Octavarium has the same melodic power of Images and Words, but without the creative instrumentation or complexity. I admit I don't feel as much just from the music a very heavy track in contrast to what went before it --but let me tell you something: this is about as authentic to the real experience of a panic attack that you can get. Octavarium is essentially a synopsis of Dream Theater's entire discography into one album, and that isn't exactly what will please every aspect of their fanbase. However--why people are knocking them for that is beyond me. I understood the direction they were going to take.

Guess what, I heard exactly what I planned on hearing. The song contains parts six and seven of the suite: "Ready" and "Remove". I find this theory unlikely since I'm pretty sure Disappear is more about death than going into a coma, but it is fascinating that whether or not Dream Theater intended it, you can find other meanings and links between many of their songs.

You can hear the "medicate me" melody riff in the background in "The Answer Lies Within. In addition, this album seems to reference Dream Theater's past albums in some ways. This is also in line with the 'Full Circle' theme of Octavarium: "this story ends where it began".

Rudess regards them as radio-friendly songs which still maintain Dream Theater's style. Poor Myung has always been lost in the mixing process, and could only be appreciated in the live CDs.

Images and Words

Octavarium is essentially a synopsis of Dream Theater's entire discography into one album, and that isn't exactly what will please every aspect of their fanbase.

Given the controversy and the flaming DT tends to generate even before an album's release, I worried at first that my high assessment of Octavarium might be due to unfairly lowering my expectations.

Stanzas 1 and 4 of part III are entirely made up of musical and other references. The song is moving, and the lyrical theme presented is uplifting, as opposed to the dark subject matter of "Anna Lee. I did a lot of research on Octavarium before it was even released.

What does a genre matter anyway? The song is written in what appears to be D Major, and that gives the song an uplifting feeling.

This one really seems to represent the moment of committing oneself to change A lot of the elements from their past three albums are absent, and replaced with some sensibilities that haven't been seen since Falling Into Infinity. Wouldn't you guys rather that all music on the radio was this good? This song reminds me of "Innocence Faded" in some ways.

After that point, it looks like the song breaks from this story a little bit, and gives a laundry list of words that have a slew of messages in it pertaining to Dream Theater, progressive rock, and persons and events from the past thirty years or so.

And the "meandering" torch is hereby passed to me! Only this time, those in power control the servant class with the very thing that once inspired men to rise up and take back their lives—music.

Album Themes - One thing this album has is a lot of hidden messages and "easter eggs" within the packaging and the music itself.

Often dismissed as a band for technique geeks only, Dream Theater doesn’t deserve such a bad rap at all: they are indeed among the most proficient and gifted musicians in their respective fields (John Myung on bass, Mike Portnoy and Mike Mangini on drums, Jordan Rudess on keyboards and the stunning John Petrucci on guitar), but they’re also capable of writing great hooky songs with riffs.
