*Update* – We’ve recently run not one, but two, very special Dream Theater features here at Rock Sins. The first has been a special look at Images and Words itself. Bands from across the world including TesseracT, Sleepmakeswaves and Vola have shared their thoughts with us on their favourite songs from the album. The second has been an exclusive interview with Dream Theater’s singer, none other than James Labrie himself. James spared some time to talk about Images and Words and lots more with us, so please check it out!
