专辑介绍:

《梦剧场》(Dream Theater)是一个成立於美国波士顿的前卫金属乐团,由几位「Berklee音乐学院」的在学学生在1985年组成(Majesty,梦剧场的前身乐团)。经过了二十多年,他们已经成为1970年代前卫摇滚高峰期后在商业上表现最成功的前卫乐团之一,但是跟主流摇滚乐比起来,知名度还是较为有限的。

他们最卖座的两张专辑分别是1992年出版的「Images and Words」和2005年出版的「Octavarium」,虽然「Images and Words」获得金唱片的荣耀,也被认为是前卫金属的开创专辑,但是在「Billboard 200」排行榜中最高也只得到61名,而「Octavarium」则获得「Billboard 200」的36名。

梦剧场的乐手的高超技巧是广为人知的,也赢得许多音乐杂志的奖项。他们也受到许多摇滚及金属乐名人的尊敬,甚至有一些颇具盛名的乐手找他们合作。最有名的例子就是吉他手「John Petrucci」在2001年继Eric Johnson、Robert Fripp、Yngwie Malmsteen及其他十分具有有影响力的吉他手后,获邀参加G3巡回表演,和Steve Vai及Joe Satriani共同演出。

梦剧场在音乐上的多才多艺及融合许多乐风的音乐作品也使他们的演出更具多样性。他们也曾和下列乐团一起巡回演出,像是深紫、Emerson Lake and Palmer、铁娘子、Joe Satriani、King's X、Marillion、Megadeth、In Flames、Pain of Salvation、Porcupine Tree、Queensrÿche、Spock's Beard、Fear Factory、Enchant、Symphony X和Yes。2005年他们也参加了「Gigantour festival」,由梦剧场和Megadeth作为主秀。

2008年1月22日,乐队第一次来到北京演出, 4月1日,乐队发行了第一张精选集《the greatest hit....and 21 pretty good songs》

Dream Theater's Greatest Hit (....And 21 Other Pretty Cool Songs) collection is a strange animal indeed. Despite the band's amazingly longevity -- they cut their first demo in 1986 -- as a touring act and as a steadily selling concern in the product marketplace, they've had exactly one hit, sort of, in 1992's "Pull Me Under" from the album Images and Words. That they are still together and still a viable touring and recording enterprise is testament enough in these strange times. Apparently, though, that's not enough for them. Drummer Mike Portnoy and his bandmembers assembled this collection with a few twists that make for rather curious listening. Divided into two discs collecting 22 cuts, the first oddity is that the epic, intricate pro-pop metallic jams they are most closely associated with are almost entirely absent here. In their place, as Portnoy goes to great lengths to explain in his liner notes (which amount to more of an apologia than anything else), are a "dark side" disc reflecting the more riff-centric, metallic, guitar and double bass drum tunes that have been influenced by everyone from Black Sabbath and Judas Priest to Iron Maiden and Metallica. The other disc, is, predictably enough, the "light side." Here, the tunes reflect the more melodic, accessibly progressive aspect of the band that has been influenced by, "...U2, Pink Floyd, Journey, and Peter Gabriel." Whatever. What's worse, Portnoy somehow thinks that this set is for the uninitiated, and claims he sees it almost as a "TV commercial or a coming attraction for a film...something that will lure the viewers/listeners in and inspire them to dig deeper, eventually leading them to experience the 'full picture'..." Apparently, he hasn't been paying attention to what's been going on in a marketplace increasingly reliant on digital media.

As for the music itself, here's the rub: the only real thing to attract veteran fans are some 2007 remixes including "Pull Me Under" (they messed with their sole pop culture classic!!!!), "Take the Time," and "Another Day," and edits that include shortened versions of "Lie," "Home," "Misunderstood," and "Solitary Shell." There is also an alternate album mix of the track "Through Her Eyes." The cover sticker reflects this, but the actual track listing on the back of the package does not. Musically, if you are a Dream Theater fan and need to have everything, you already know these tracks, and have them in at least two versions -- live and studio -- anyway, and the remixes are nothing whatsoever to write home about. If you are a novice, you'd be better of picking up one of the band's truly classic recordings such as Images and Words, Change of Seasons, Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, or Scenes from a Memory to hear their studio magic, on the one hand, or, Live Scenes from New York on the other. This double-disc makes little sense. Excess is one of the greatest things about Dream Theater: they are one of the best live bands on the planet and understand that big rock & roll is about the show as well as great musicianship, but sometimes, even grand excess is a little to o grand for its own good; this is just such a case. -----------by Thom Jurek
