While continuing to improve its musical chops and explore more progressive territory, Dream Theater reached its mainstream apex with 1992's Images and Words. Here the group capably combined prog rock high-mindedness with metal crunch and commercial accessibility on the opening track "Pull Me Under," helping to snare an audience big enough to push this album past gold sales status. What makes Images and Words stand out is the fluid marriage of shred tactics, soaring vocals, and catchy hooks, all wrapped up in a polished studio sound. Fans can argue whether this is the band's best, but there is no denying the power of epic, engaging songs like "Take the Time," "Under a Glass Moon," and "Metropolis, Pt. 1," a track that foreshadowed the 1999 outing Scenes from a Memory. Following Images and Words, Dream Theater became increasingly complex in its approach, to varying degrees of success, but this album represents a time when the ensemble brought progressive metal to the masses with little compromise.
