Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory is the fifth studio album and first concept album by American progressive metal/progressive rock band Dream Theater, released on October 26, 1999 through Elektra Records. It was recorded at BearTracks Studios in Suffern, New York, where the band had previously recorded their second studio album Images and Words (1992) and the EP A Change of Seasons (1995).
The album is the sequel to "Metropolis—Part I: 'The Miracle and the Sleeper'", a song previously featured on the band's 1992 album Images and Words. It was also the first album to feature Jordan Rudess on keyboards, and the last for which John Myung wrote lyrics until A Dramatic Turn of Events (2011).
In late July 2012, Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory was voted as the number one all-time progressive rock album in a poll conducted by Rolling Stone, beating Rush's 2112 and Close to the Edge by Yes, after a link to the poll was posted on the Dream Theater website. For the album's twentieth anniversary, the band will perform it live in its entirety throughout the 2019 tour.
