Honestly, I only really knew what was what from watching the Live in Budakon.

For me, it was Five Years in a LIVETime.

Instrumentally really makes me go "Damn, now I know why I love this song so much!"   :metal :metal

Yep, same here. I've been listening to the instrumental version of the entire album too and it's fantastic.

Honestly, I don't get all the hate for New Millennium.

Where?

Here! I've seen a not totally insignificant number of people here complain about the song and list it as one of their least favorites.

No one is going to say the groove and base aren't quite good. The lyrics and terrible keyboard bring it down. Popping FII in the CD player for the first time and hearing that grating keyboard intro, I was all "Uhhhhhh............. what?"

Yeah, I'm not really going to defend the keyboard/guitar intro there. It's probably the low point of the song, alongside that random atmospheric slow bridge 3:30ish in. Those are the only two parts of the song that I'm not a fan of this

Sorry, but I love the intro, and the music breakdown where they repeat the riff is one my favorite instrumental moments in all of DT history.   :coolio

I know that it was kinda built off of Caught In A Web but it's still one of Dream Theaters most unique sounding songs I can think of.

Ok, sorry to double quote the OP, but I couldn't find any info about this.. It's something a band member told in an interview or something like that? .. I mean, sure some parts sound very similar, actually I always thought that was the only reason why they did the CIANM medley.. but built off, like The Mirror/Lie?, that'd be something interesting to know more of..

During some gigs in 1996 and 1997, DT played something (a heavily distorted and modified version of "Caught In a Web") that came to be dubbed as "Caught In Alice's 9 Inch Tool Garden". It eventually went through enough changes that it became its own song, "New Millenium". Here's how it originally sounded: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yq-kU6IFPC4
