DREAM THEATER - DARK SIDE OF THE MOON (2005)
Taking it back the early days of G.O.M.E. - As go Big Jack's moods, so goes G.O.M.E. I think you guys will really dig this one, though. I'm no DREAM THEATER fan, but I love their cover albums. This is the classic Dark Side record, performed faithfully by DREAM THEATER, in excellent sound quality, and in front of an audience. I love the original, so I listened to this with a skeptical ear, and I still really enjoy it. The highlight of this album, regardless of who is performing the tune, is always "Us & Them". BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME did a great rendition on their covers album, but this DT version probably takes the cake. I'm biased, though. I could listen to a band of trained apes playing "Us & Them" with Ja Rule on vocals and still get misty-eyed. I don't like prog rock, nor do I like DREAM THEATER, but I recommend this to all the Faithful. If you're not already familiar, check it out. You'll be doing yourself a favor. By the way, if the lovely Jodi M. ever happens to stumble across G.O.M.E., yes I'm finally giving DREAM THEATER some credit. I love 'em when they're playing other bands' songs [rimshot]!
