DREAM THEATER Hollow Years CD single




Hollow Years is the fourth song and the first single from the Dream Theater album Falling into Infinity. The lyrics were written entirely by John Petrucci. An accompanying music video was also released which cost around $100,000. The version on Live At Budokan features an intro solo as well as a new middle solo, considered by many to be among Petrucci's best. - wikipedia
Errr... nak kena dengar balik Live at Budokan.

Anyway, ini single rilis sempena album Falling Into Infinity. Album yang dikatakan sebagai album paling sell out. Sebabnya? Label maukan something yang accessible, dengan lain kata, chart songs. So diorang insist DT engage Desmond Child sebagai produser. Desmond Child ni memang produser kasi ngetop.

Ironinya, album ni pada aku among the best. In fact, takde la komersil sangat pun. Harap lagu You Not Me je la (yang Desmond involve sekali). Lain-lain masih tipikal DT.

1 "Hollow Years" (Radio Edit) – 4:16 - ada influens Latin sikit. Dengarkan gitar kapok Petrucci. Lagu ni not bad, in fact dalam kategori lagu ballad, lagu ni antara yang bestest. Versi ni dipotong sikit supaya sesuai dengan lagu radio (read: short attention span). 4/5

2 "Hollow Years" (LP Version) – 5:55 - versi album. 4/5

3 "You or Me" (You Not Me Demo Version) – 6:25 - Lagu You NOT Me sebenarnya. Versi ni rasanya sebelum Desmond Child masuk campur. Compare? Lagi best You Not Me kot tapi ada satu part dalam versi ni bila keyboard Sherinian masuk campur tu, best gila. Cuma part tu kasi lagu ni dark sikit. Aku rasa Desmond tak mau lagu ni jadi terlampau dark. Maklumlah, lagu yang ditarget untuk memasuki carta. Boleh tahan jugak Desmond bikin lagu eh. Padan la pun. Produser chart topper la katakan. 4/5

4 "The Way It Used to Be" (Non Album Track) – 7:47 - Ada rupa lagu U2 pun iye. Terutama gitar Petrucci dan backin keyboard Sherinian. In fact, suara LaBrie pun adjust macam Bono pulak hehehe... Aku suspect Desmond punya idea la ni. Tapi maybe DT pun hangin diorang sekali bagi panjang lagu so tak leh masuk radio. Padan muka. Imaginasi aku je, jangan percaya. Anyway asalnya album Falling Into Infinity, DT nak jadikan double album dengan panjang 140 minit tapi label tak mau rilis. Ini lagu yang direjek kot. Well, ini lagu quite good. Kalau diberi pilihan, aku prefer lagu ni masuk album. Anna Lee kasi rejek la lembik sangat lagu tu pun. 5/5
