    0:57 - 1:17, the best soundtrack to a ride on a Harley Davidson ever. Not that I've done it. It just looks hilarious in my head.

    Wow the vocalist gets slaughtered here, for myself he reminds me of Frank DiMino and Geddy Lee in one. Perhaps not the talent of Labrie, but I have seen Labrie perform this song as well, wasn't that great: straining for the right notes (and not hitting them). Still prefer the WDADU version overall, of this fabulous song.

    Great song, great album, but not well-produced. Would be great if this album would be reissued and remixed with modern sound.

    Live at the Marquee version FTW! @ wiche: I love this quote - I'm a bit confused though because it appears as a part of the lyrics to AFIL in the booklet, yet there's no spoken word passage at the beginning that would justify them being part of the song's lyrics. Does anybody get what I'm trying to express?

    The first track on the first DT's LP. Sounds surprisingly good! Dominici is a pretty good singer. The only real con is the lesser production.

    This was my first Dream Theater's song and one of my favourite!

    too 'bit-y' for me. Sounds like a whole collection of music chopped up and re-arranged. Better DT out there....

    "The song is nice, but the production sucks. The sound quality is awful. And I really don't enjoy Dominici " try the Live at the Marquee version

    Pretend driving a motorbike from 0:57 - 1:15. Looks very funny.
