The tone of the album is somewhat similar to [[Images and Words]], though Scenes is much heavier due to better production and writing. Out of the four tenets of Dream Theater's sound (progressive, metal, melodic and pop) the album focuses on progressive firstly, with melodic and metal secondary, with very little pop sound. Most of the songs are very progressive, containing extended solo sequences, such as "Fatal Tragedy", "Home" and "Beyond This Life", which are also some of the heaviest works on the album. The album's two instrumentals, "Overture 1928" and "The Dance of Eternity", are also very proggy and are seen as some of the band's most difficult music. The melodic and pop sounds do come into play on "Through My Words" and "Through Her Eyes". "The Spirit Carries On" and "Finally Free" are seen as epic mixtures of the melodic and progressive sounds, and the album's opening song "Regression" is a rare acoustic song.
