Megadeth, I can't stand David's voice on most songs, and aside from a few classic songs, I just don't really like em.
Aside from that I can't really say any other band is over rated, I mean yeah I may not enjoy it, but I can see how others might, so I look at music from that perspective.

Steve Wilson for sure. Claims he is a genius are way far off the mark.
Average vocals, guitar decent, but he gets raves for his producing, which is nothing more than par.

Devin Townsend, ever since I heard him ruin Vai's S&R album, I've never understood the fuss about him.

Pain of Salvation, first 3 albums great, the rest is absolute drivel.

Spocks Beard, could stand them with Morse, can't stand them now and can't stand NM solo stuff either.

The Dear Hunter. By PARSECS.
This. Also the following: Queensrhyce, Marillion, Spock's Beard, Fate's Warning, The Offspring (probably the most overrated one of them all)

Fates Warning hardly ever get talked about.  I only made a thread for them a couple of months ago.  if anything they are very underrated.

I dunno if I'd call his producing/mixing abilities nothing more than par. He's definitely capable in that department.

For me, Devin Townsend isn't bad, just unremarkable. From the bits and pieces I've heard, he's a capable singer, and the music is okay, but his stuff just does nothing for me. I think a good part of the problem is his wall-of-sound style just makes everything sound thin and samey and bland.

I agree.  I actually like him, I have quite a few of his solo albums along with a few SYL albums.  Just most of his stuff doesn't really grab me at all.  Still interesting and creative and I could see how people could really like his work.

I'm not sure if I can describe it. It just makes the music sound very... compressed? I got the feeling occasionally that with a different production, I could possibly start to get into his music, but the way it's done sucks the appeal out of it for me.

My vote also goes to Devin Townsend. To me, he seems like the type of musician who can produce a good album every 2-3 years but he doesn't want to. He instead releases two albums per year with  lots of filler content. He has some good ideas, sometimes even with full songs that are really good, but they are overshadowed by the unfinished-sounding majority of his albums.

I like Porcupine Tree as well, but lets face it SW can't guitar solo his way out of a paper bag.  some of those songs are really so good and then you get to the solo and it's like "whaa?  my 8-year old kid could do a better job..." 

Also have to jump on the Opeth overrato-wagon.

And Circus Maximus, yes I just went there.

I know it's not a great start to have one of my first posts piss off the DTF masses, but oh well.  I promise I'm not a troll.

How is Circus Maximus overrated when most of the forum hates them or writes them off as DT clones?

Hey, that's cool.  I think they do get high marks from a lot of people for being the most like DT of anyone, at least that's my impression.

y so many people think devin is overrated :<

While I didn't, I can understand why the reactions some people may have to the raves his music gets here are considered overrating him. While I think The Dear Hunter and Steven Wilson are more overrated here, I'll flat out say it: Deconstruction is the most overrated album here. When it leaked the Devy thread treated it like the second coming, and more than one person said it was the best metal album ever. If you're not really a fan of his-and he's fallen out of favor with me over the past few years, I thought every one of the DTP albums but Ghost was just average-you're going to read that and think, "Christ, this guy is overrated."
The bones of beasts and the bones of kings become dust in the wake of the hymn.
Mighty kingdoms rise, but they all will fall, no more than a breath on the wind.
