Song of the Day

June 3, 2012
Dream Theater
Awake (1994)

Here's a song from Dream Theater's third studio album.  Following the success of their previous album, Images And Words, the record companies pressured the band into making a follow-up album.  Reception to the album was mixed (although people now agree that it is awesome), and the record companies saw the album as a flop (they're dumb).  Keyboardist Kevin Moore left the band after this album, and was replaced by Derek Sherinian, whom you may remember from the Black Country Communion comic.  He was hired with only two week to learn all of Dream Theater's music for their upcoming tour, but he succeeded and was kept onboard for several years after.
