Welcome to Lifting Shadows
Essential Works proudly presents two fully revised and updated editions of Rich Wilson’s acclaimed biography of Dream Theater, exclusively available online.
For the second edition of Lifting Shadows, I’ve tracked down and interviewed even more people involved in the Dream Theater story. There’s also a detailed look at the making of the Black Clouds & Silver Linings album, with all new interviews with the band. Plus I’ve added an appendix which covers the numerous side projects, such as Liquid Tension Experiment, Transatlantic, OSI, G3 and other solo albums, with interviews with the likes of Neal Morse, Jim Matheos, Tony Levin and the DT guys. This edition is also around 40% longer than the original. I hope you all enjoy reading it!

The Classic Edition – a standard hardback, albeit a high quality one – or the luxurious leather-bound Limited Edition, personally signed by the author himself. We will be updating this site with all the latest news on the project, including details of how owners of the original Box Set Edition can take advantage of an exclusive discount on the new Classic Edition.
