This is the first attempt by young graduates of the music school who, after calling themselves for a while Majesty, decided to choose Dream Theater as their band name. Knowing the tremendous evolution of this group that has become a reference, it was possible that its beginnings would be quite "amusing" to hear. 

"Fun" is far from being the appropriate word for this "When Dream And Day Unite" because the final result can be surprisingly accurate and mature.

Regulars will be surprised not to find James Labrie's vocals again, but a certain Charlie Dominici, who, it must be said, is very far from being able to match the musical content. The latter, on the other hand, is really interesting and already has undeniable compositional and technical qualities. 

We find what will make Dream Theater's success, namely the very many rhythmic changes, the melodious soli, the extensive use of keyboards and the class and touch that characterize the group. Some compositions stand out from the crowd by their impact such as "Killing Hand", a true demonstration of sensitivity and touch.

Apart from the weak production and the voice which is cruelly lacking in warmth and power, WDDU turns out to be a very good album, not to be defined as a trial. Dream Theater's style is already well established and it is understandable that such a group could only reach the heights of fame.
