»Awake« ist das dritte Album von Dream Theater aus dem Jahr 1994 und kommt nun als Re-Release 180 Gramm Pressung und mit vierseitigem Einleger. Nach dem großen Erfolg von »Images and Words« war es Dream Theater ein dringendes Bedürfnis an neuem Material zu arbeiten, so dass es schon im Mai 1994 wieder zurück ins Studio ging. John Purdell und Duane Baron produzierten und mischten das Album ab. Das Coverdesign stammt von der Band selbst und enthält Referenzen zu den Texten des Albums. »Awake« kletterte auf Platz 32 der US Billboard Top 200. Es ist das letzte Album mit Keyboarder Kevin Moore, der während der Aufnahmen seinen Ausstieg aus der Band ankündigte und schlussendlich durch Derek Sherinian ersetzt wurde. »Lie«, »Caught in a Web« und »The Silent Man« wurden als Singles veröffentlicht.

Some buildings echo, and hold onto, the violence and evil which they witness. The spirits, who in life, perpetrated the abhorrent acts, deciding to stay within our realm to carry on their wickedness, preying on those unfortunate enough to fall across their path. Following an illness, Jill and her long-time partner Paul decide to pursue an idyllic life, and they find what they believe will be their perfect home: an abandoned railway station nestled in the North Yorkshire Moors of England. What was supposed to be the beginning of their new life together soon becomes their worst nightmare, as the malevolent spirit, dormant for decades, awakens. The old railway station at Thirstonfield had lay forgotten and derelict for many years, and for a good reason, its dark secrets remaining undisturbed until its new owners moved in. The events in this fictional novel are based on real occurrences and a spirit who still haunts the banks of the River Tees in Middlesbrough, England, to this day. 1. Language: English.

In this inspiring and provocative memoir, Caylin Moore tells the against-all-odds story of his rise from cruel poverty in gang-ridden Los Angeles to academic success at Oxford University, with hope as his compass.By all rights, Caylin Louis Moore should be dead, in prison, or stalking the streets of Compton with his fellow gang-members. Instead, he’s a Rhodes Scholar, author, speaker, and role model for every kid deprived of hope in downtrodden communities. A Dream Too Big is the story of Moore’s exodus from one of the most impoverished, gang-infested communities in the United States to the golden, dreaming spires of Oxford, England.After Moore’s mother gathered her three young children and fled an abusive husband of nine years, leaving behind a comfortable middle-class life, Moore found himself in a bewildering and dangerous environment. The family lived in a neighborhood ruled by the Bloods, and Caylin often lay awake at night, terrified by both the sounds of gunfire outside and the scratching of rats and roaches moving in the walls. When Moore’s father was convicted of murder and his mother was sexually assaulted in the hospital while recovering from open-heart surgery, Moore was forced to enter adulthood prematurely. Embracing his mother’s steely faith in God and education, Moore skirted the gangs and the endemic violence of Compton to excel on the football field and in the classroom.Academics and athletics led to college scholarships, which led to a Fulbright and eventually the Rhodes Scholarship. Along the way, Moore cofounded a student organization that brought college athletes into underserved classrooms as inspirational speakers, role models, and mentors. Moore’s eye-opening, inspirational story proves that, contrary to what others told him on his journey, there is no such thing as a dream too big.´´A dream too big is a truly special book. Caylin´s story is not just inspirational, it i 1. Language: English. Narrator: Caylin Louis Moore. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tnwd/001507/bk_tnwd_001507_sample.mp3.

To what lengths would you go to keep a past buried? Samantha Moore is the golden girl - with a perfect job, a perfect man, a perfect life - until a random act of violence changes everything. Unconscious for two months, Sam awakens from her coma a different person - bitter, in constant pain, and forced to endure medications that leave her nauseous, paranoid, and struggling to keep a grip on reality.

Strange things are happening here - and either Samantha Moore is losing her mind or her friendly new neighbors are far more dangerous than they appear to be.... 1. Language: English.
