In the previous Art Corner edition, we had Queensrÿche's Q2K, and in this one we have Dream Theater. So you can see this as the fight between the two Prog Metal titans, I guess!
Both of them have very nice covers. I would say that this is Dream Theater's best cover so far, but they both have failed to create interesting booklets. The booklet for Scenes From A memory is simple, black-and-white without any images. It works all right, but for such an fascinating concept album, it would have been nice with some images taken from the story.
There is one image on the back of the booklet, but I don't think it works very well there. It's too different from the cover. The same goes for the back of the case with the track listing.
The print on the disc is simple but very nice.
A small victory for Dream Theater in this Prog Metal artwork fight. And I must say that they win the musical fight as well.
