Dream Theater Images And Words on Limited Edition 180g LP
Dream Theater have steadily achieved a startlingly sublime synthesis of soaring and unmistakable melody, progressive instrumentation and aggressive heaviness unrivaled within hard rock music. The legacy established throughout their virtuosic career of astounding aesthetic alchemy has made their very moniker synonymous with the power of talent, ability and momentum when brilliantly forged together.
Images And Words is the second studio album by Dream Theater, originally issued in 1992. The 8-song set was recorded in late-1991 at BearTracks Studios in Suffern, NY and is the band's first to feature James LaBrie on vocals. The album maintains its position as the band's most commercially successful studio album to date, and the song "Pull Me Under" has the distinction of being the only Top 10 hit Dream Theater has ever had.
Images And Words was met with universal acclaim upon its release and many critics and fans alike cite the album as a landmark work of the progressive metal genre. The album went on to receive an RIAA gold certification, the band's only studio album to date to do so.
