Reconfigure Falling Into Infinity
« on: December 09, 2020, 12:34:44 PM »
Inspired by a discussion in another thread.

You have 80 minutes (no double CDs) but you aren't obligated to use all 80 or anything close.  What songs make it?  You get the songs that made the album and those on Cleaning out the Closet.  I don't know how long the demo versions are, so I didn't include them, but you can mention that in comments if you want.  No Metropolis Pt. 2 because it wasn't close to being done.

:lol  I should have known this thread was coming.  :tup

I will give this a shot later.  But I can say, preliminarily, that You Not Me, Hollow Years, and possibly Burning My Soul will be making an exit, and Raise the Knife will be included.  Beyond that, I need to go back and listen to some of the COTC songs, and likely have to make some practical considerations based on time restraints, etc.  We'll see.  Despite that Hell's Kitchen is my least favorite album instrumental, it will likely stay on because I really think it works well as an intro to Lines in the Sand (unless it gets cut for time constraints).

So here is my version of FII, if you allowed us to make a double CD this would have been completely different, but either way here is my version. I do have some things that I want to point out. First, I think that FII should have been released in 2000 instead of 1997 (that's just my own personal opinion), secondly since there was a Japanese edition of this album I also included what could have been on that 3" CD , thirdly, a music video should have been made for Peruvian Skies instead of Hollow Years, lastly I will point out specific changes to certain songs, and mixing and matching certain sections from different versions.

*LITS would stay relatively similar to its studio version, but it would include that extra vocal unison that is found on the original 96' version
+YOM would reman true to the demo, but it would have the guitar solo section from You Not Me
^TAMP would remain true to the demo, but the solo section could either have been Jay Beckenstein performing as he did on the overdub on the live version on 5YIALT, or just stick with the original solo that JP performs, up for debate
`STM would be a hidden track after ToT
#HY would have the drum parts that MP played on the studio version, instead of the one he performs on the demo version, everything else about the song would remain true to the demo version

Falling Into Infinity [Max 80min = ~78.5min]
1). New Millennium 8:20
2). Peruvian Skies 6:43
3). Raise The Knife 11:40
4). Hell’s Kitchen 4:16
*5). Lines In The Sand 96’ 13:23
+6). You Or Me 6:24
^7). Take Away My Pain 96’ 6:49
8). Trial Of Tears 13:06
      I. It's Raining
      II. Deep In Heaven
      III. The Wasteland
`9). Speak To Me 6:25

Japanese Edition 3” CD [Max 24min = ~24min]
1). Cover My Eyes 3:23
#2). Hollow Years 96’ 6:26
3). Where Are You Now? 7:27
4). Anna Lee 5:51

Let me know what you think about this version!

Hereís what Iíd pick and how Iíd order them:

1. New Millennium (8:20)
2. Raise the Knife (11:35)
3. Hollow Years (5:53)
4. Hell's Kitchen (4:16)
5. Lines in the Sand (12:05)
6. Take Away My Pain (6:03)
7. Speak to Me (6:10)
8. The Way It Used to Be (7:45)
9. Trial of Tears (13:06)

I think thatís about 76 minutes (counting in my head). Also, itís all killer, no filler.

I totally get that and thatís why Iíd want it re-recorded properly to include it on FII, I wouldnít include in itís current form. Iím not having a pop at JLB, it just sounds like heís understandably going through the motions for a demo rather than giving it the full treatment that he would on a final version.  Love the version on Score.

I love FII the way it is, although not perfect. But I think it would be a monster album like that:

1. New Millenium
2. Peruvian Skies
3. Hollow Years
4. Hell's Kitchen
5. Lines in the Sand
6. Raise the Knife
7. Where Are You Now?
8. The Way It Used to Be
9. Cover My Eyes (electric version)
10. Trial of Tears

But I really think it be released as a double CD. Every song has its merits.

Well, here's my response and reasons why I chose these songs....

I'd actually like the album a lot if it had this tracklisting

1. Cover My Eyes (I wanted New Millenium to also stay, but I wanted Cover My Eyes to be included, and it's also not a bad opener with the intro being started by guitar.)
2. Where Are You Now? (As I stated, if they were to clean this song a bit more, It's pretty good as it is, there is just one section I feel they could trim off, 4:58-4:50 is that section, well they could work that out a bit more, but other than it's a good 2nd song. With the Drums coming in after the ending of Cover My Eyes vocal outro "Have I Lost My Mind")
3. Peruvian Skies (Studio)
4. Hollow Years (This one includes the pre-chorus before the Chorus and the extended Live Solo)
5. Raise The Knife
6. Lines In The Sand (This one includes the demo verse)
7. Take Away My Pain (The Once In A LIvetime version, I like that blend of the studio and the demo)
8. Hell's Kitchen (I didn't want to leave this one out, as it's a beautiful instrumental, so Just Let Me Breathe and Anna Lee had to go)(I would also hold the last chord and fade it into Trial of Tears, or maybe a short interlude)(Or Just put the demo version of Burning My Soul, that includes Hells Kitchen  :lol)
9. Trial of Tears (Studio)

These are all songs I like and the ones I think would work well as the album, Falling Into Infinity.

It comes out to 1:18:03 with Burning My Soul demo, or 1:13:22 with just Hells Kitchen.

I listened to the playlist and it sounds really good.

For the poll, I voted for both Burning My Soul and Hells Kitchen as both can work. I just need a better version of them playing Burning My Soul Demo or just edit out MP's gagging at the end of the demo.  :lol

To add a little bit of spice, I'm gonna go for this version:

Just Let Me Breathe - it's FII, you have to start the funk early
Hollow Years - single at #2, no big thoughts there
Peruvian Skies - a really good song in a really good spot
Speak To Me - this is where we get a little mellow. I don't mind this album being mellow even in my fantasy, but it is my fantasy and I'd rather have "mellow" than Burning My Soul
Hell's Kitchen - >
Lines In The Sand - >
Take Away My Pain - > a really good three song run that probably shouldn't be switched around
Cover My Eyes - between TAMP and TOT we need another non-mellow song to break things up, and while Cover My Eyes might be one of the weaker songs from the sessions (I don't think so, but I have to acknowledge people who do), it's also a nice little jolt of energy.
Anna Lee - >
Trial Of Tears - has to close

Because...

You get the songs that made the album and those on Cleaning out the Closet.


First, I think that FII should have been released in 2000 instead of 1997 (that's just my own personal opinion)

Why would you want a band that had released two successful albums in a 27 month span, and which already had more than a full album's worth of material sit around and languish for another three years?


thirdly, a music video should have been made for Peruvian Skies

That would have been cheery....


By the way, mine would have been

You Not Me
Hollow Years
Burning My Soul
Hell's Kitchen
Lines in the Sand (with no guest vocals)
Take Away My Pain
Anna Lee
Trial of Tears
Raise the Knife

That's around the 60 minute mark, and I didn't give it any thought to song order.

I agree there is enough material for a good double (I posted a proposed track list for that somewhere else around here recently).

Edit: this was it:

Disc 1 (just under 52 minutes)

1. New Millennium
2. You or Me
3. Raise the Knife
4. Peruvian Skies
5. Cover My Eyes (could be convinced to drop this or include Burning My Soul instead)
6. Hellís Kitchen
7. Lines in the Sand

Disc 2 (just over 52 minutes)

1. Take Away My Pain
2. Hollow Years
3. Where Are You Now (demo needs a little cleaning up/production but thereís a good song in there)
4. Speak to Me
5. The Way it Used to Be
6. Anna Lee
7. Trial of Tears

I've made this playlist before. I'm never quite sure about the order, though. Had this been FII, Dream Theater would have had a streak of four great albums in the 90s.

I didn't have time to make it foolproof and I believe I might go 30 seconds or so over the CD limit, but I would have:

1. New Millennium
2. Raise the Knife
3. Peruvian Skies
4. Hollow Years
5. Burning my Soul
6. Hellís Kitchen
7. Lines in the Sand
8. Cover My Eyes
9. Speak to Me
10. You Not Me
11. Trail of Tears

Basically replace Just Let me Breathe with Raise the Knife, Anna Lee with Speak to Me, and Take Away My Pain with Cover My Eyes to make it all a little less slow.

The original sequence was fine but sticking Raise the Knife as second track ups the game. Then it all flows as usual until you catch a breath after Lines in the Sand with the short and catchy Cover My Eyes, Then it's time for the other big ballad, Speak to Me, and to pump things up one last time, You Not Me can stay there near the end and ready to be forgotten because after that comes Trial of Tears, which of course has to end it all.
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Basically the same album with no New Millennium, Just Let Me Breath, or Lines in the Sand. I guess you could replace those with Cover My Eyes, Speak to Me, and the Way It Used To Be. Maybe Raise the Knife if there's enough room left. Not huge fans of those and they would probably be my least favorite on the album but better than the ones that ended up on there.

And yes, You Not Me is better than all of those.

I am not including Eve, Donít Look Past Me, or To Live Forever since none of those songs came from the FII sessions/writing period.

I always thought the beginning of Hell's Kitchen could have been tweaked a bit to give it an intro feel to where it was a great first track that leads into the first proper song with lyrics (Lines...).

1. Hell's Kitchen
2. Lines in the Sand
3. Peruvian Skies
4. Hollow Years
5. Raise the Knife
6. Cover My Eyes
7. Take Away My Pain (FII finished version)
8. Just Let Me Breathe
9. Speak to Me
10. Trial of Tears

Hey, it's the annual "FII sucks, try and make it better" thread!  :D

Following pg's rules (his choices and keeping the arrangements as they were, or in demo form):

1. Raise The Knife
2. Hollow Years
3. Hell's Kitchen
4. Lines In The Sand (breaking the rules here: no guest vox)
5. Peruvian Skies
6. Speak to Me
7. Trial Of Tears

Even that isn't a very solid album.

Not following the rules, and going outside the bounds of what was realistic at the time:

1. A Change of Seasons
2. Hollow Years
3. Raise the Knife
4. Hell's Kitchen
5. Lines In The Sand (no guest vox)
6. Peruvian Skies
7. Speak to Me
8. Trial Of Tears

If that is too long, ditch Speak to Me, then Hollow Years. ACoS on a proper album instantly makes it one of their better albums. Having on an EP with a bunch of covers doesn't do it justice. And since I don't care about their covers, it's wasted for me.

Eve is a tricky song for me. I like it, but more as a rando song; it doesn't seem to fit in to any album anywhere.

I like this thread!  :heart

I think that FII is a great album and doesnīt have a song which iīd skip.
But if Iīd have to mix things up my Falling Into Infinity would be as follows:

1. Just Let Me Breathe
2. You Or Me
3. To Live Forever
4. Hellīs Kitchen
5. Burning My Soul
6. Hollow Years
7. Take Away My Pain
8. Raise The Knife
9. Where Are You Now?
10. Anna Lee
11. Trial Of Tears


Just Let Me Breathe would be a KILLER opener for an album or a live show.

IMO FII is the best sounding Dream Theater album. The drums sound amazing and Derek makes a big difference. Also, Derek brings a little bit of sex into the band... A little bit of dangerous...

06 Where Are You Now
07 Raise The Knife
08 Speak To Me
09 The Way It Use To Be
10 Anna Lee
11 Trial of Tears

I imagine my version would be an even bigger failure. I cut out all the heavy metal shit (Burning My Soul, Just Let Me Breathe) and there was a lot of soft songs left.

I had to cut Lines In The Sand to make room.

I don't have access to Cleaning Out The Closet so I just did what is available on Spotify. I also included only a song from the FII sessions, so no older songs. My edit is.more o song flo and I even came up with a title for the playlist:

Imagine Infinity

Raise the Knife (Score)
Peruvian Skies
Anna Lee
Burning My Soul
Hell's Kitchen
Lines In The Sand
Hollow Years (Budokan)
Take Away My Pain

Would have included Cover My Eyes if it is on Spotify.

People figured out that the white thing that comes out of cows' titties could be drunk, and the relation between sweet desires and women's bellies growing up for 9 months. It can't be THAT hard to figure out how a trumpet works.Ē

Well, I think the Director's Cut is already the "perfect" DT album (not quite, but I prefer it greatly to the released version).

Raise the Knife (11:35)
Where Are You Now (7:26)
Take Away My Pain (6:03)
You Not Me (4:58) (The demo version, if only for the lack of annoying backing vocals)
Anna Lee (5:51)
Burning My Soul/Hell's Kitchen (5:29 + 4:16)
The Way It Used to Be (7:45)  (This is one of my favorite songs of the session)
Lines in the Sand (12:05) 

Just Let Me Breathe (5:28)
Peruvian Skies (6:43)
Cover My Eyes (3:21)
Hollow Years (5:53)
Speak to Me (6:10)
New Millennium (8:20)
Trial of Tears (13:06)

I used the combined BMS/HK, and moved TOT to the end where it belongs.   :)  LITS is the demo version, and with none of Doug Pinnick's screeching (though I don't really care for LaBrie's either; that chorus has to go).   

To cut to 80 minutes is the hardest part of this; but to honor the ask by PG, I would go with:

Raise the Knife (11:35)
Where Are You Now (7:26)
Take Away My Pain (6:03)
Anna Lee (5:51)
The Way It Used to Be (7:45)
Peruvian Skies (6:43)
Cover My Eyes (3:21)
Hollow Years (5:53)
Speak to Me (6:10)
Trial of Tears (13:06)

For the record, I didn't consider Eve or Live Forever, but they would have made it; I love both, and the '91 version of LF is a top ten DT song for me, 100%.

I made my own version of FII back in the day, and I think my track list was: New Millennium, Raise the Knife, Peruvian Skies, Hollow Years, Hell's Kitchen, Lines in the Sand, Speak to Me, and Trial of Tears. It ended up being one of my most listened-to DT albums.

FII is so, so good.

I feel bad for people that can't see that.
