1992. Images And Words

 is the second album by progressive metal band Dream Theater, released in 1992. It was recorded in late 1991 at BearTracks Studios in Suffern, New York. The album is the first Dream Theater release to feature James LaBrie on vocals. The album maintains its position as the band’s most commercially successful studio album to date, and the song “Pull Me Under” has the distinction of being the only Top 10 (radio or otherwise) hit the band has ever had. 

On release, the album was met with universal acclaim and many critics and fans cite this album as a landmark release for the progressive metal genre. The album later received an RIAA certification of gold, the band’s only studio album to date to do so. On April 9, 2013, Images and Words won Loudwire’s fan voted March Metal Madness for best metal album of all time.

Although there is no title track on this album, the phrase images and words appears in the song “Wait for Sleep”.

After Charlie Dominici’s departure from the band, the band auditioned nearly 200 people across the nation before James LaBrie sent the band an audition tape. LaBrie was formerly in the Canadian glam metal band Winter Rose, but saw potential in the band, and thus decided to audition. After a short jam session, the band chose him as their lead singer, and he has manned the post ever since.
