I'm a totally Rock fan, there's no doubt about it. When I listened Dream Theater for the first time, I knew the band will be in the bucket rocker proggy list for all my life. It was 10 years ago when Dream Theater came out to my life. I remember Octavarium release and obviously all those amazing songs I discovered. A friend of mine introduced me in DT's world, and I'm very thankful with her because Dream Theater is a diverse proggy band. Since then, during these ten years, I've been discovered each one of the albums and lovin' them. I remember that moment when for the first time I listened to Octavarium song and that amazing intro and all the seque sections: "wow! these guys are amazing!. It sounds like Pink Floyd, Queen, Cream, Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Beatles, I mean all the bands I've been listening for during all my entire life!". Since then, Dream Theater was (and still it is) my favorite band. I bought every single album, DVDs and fan collectors things.
People ask me about my favorite DT album and for me its kinda hard question 'cause I've been ejoying each one of them, its hard to choose just one, when I have favorite songs like Pull me under, Learning to live, surrounded, metropolis pt. 1, 6:00, lifting shadows off a dream, Scarred, lie, A Change of Seasons, New Millennium, Anna Lee, Let me Breathe, Hollow Years, Trial of Tears, Through her Eyes, the Dance of Eternity, Finally Free, The Glass Prison, Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, the Great Debate, Honor Thy Father, The root of all Evil, I Walk beside you, Panic Attack, Sacrificed Sons, Octavarium, Constant Motion, Forsaken, Repentance, The Ministry of Lost Souls, A Nightmare to Remember, Wither, The Best of Times, The Count of Tuscany, On The Backs of Angels, Breaking all illusions, Beneath the surface, Surrender to Reason, Behind the Veil, Illumination Theory, etc. I don't choose one album, I LOVE all ones!.
Congratulations guys, it seems for you 30 years since the dream started it off and all the story behind you has been great. It seems to me 10 years since the very first moment I started to listen to you guys!. Happy 30th anniversary!
