killer_roach;2847197 said:One of the biggest problems comparing the two is that the "Final Fantasy VII effect" holds pretty solidly over Images and Words. It's a fantastic album, but it's also the album that most people started off on, and their memories of being brought into Dream Theater are somewhat colored by that.
