Seeing as the other poll was conducted just after The Astonishing was released - Let's do it again a year later and see how the results stack up.

They're pretty much listed in the order I'd rank them, so yeah.

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

Yes. Every successive album being better than the one before ( for me at least ).

Yes, because I always rank things backwards.  :\
SC alone I would have listened to more times than all of the MM era albums combined.

I vote for The Astonishing.

Out of the "normal" albums, I'd go for Dramatic Turn.

What does that even mean? The posts perfectly mirror what the poll results are saying. And what is a "vocal" post anyway? Everyone's giving their opinions in much the same manner.

Nš 1: ADTOE (But imagine this album with TA production!)
About TA, I guess just only one forumer said that previously, I whish it was a bit longer, with more typical DT soloing and instrumentation within the songs and some songs more developed (and NOMACs tracks OUT :biggrin:). With all that, despite the simple story concept and that still not so good drum sound, I think TA maybe would be my favorite album of their entire catalog.

I would say ADTOE.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

An interesting poll! At this point, I'd probably rank DT12 first. A great balance of heavyness and melody. The Ashtonishing is the second on the list. Musically an excellent album, but there should be a bit more metal and technical sections to keep my interest. Still, every once in a while a must listen.

ADTOE takes the third spot. An amazing album, but for some reason I need long breaks before getting back to this album. Perhaps I overlistened to it when it was released? Then SC is fourth and BCASL fifth.

As usual, the poll and the vocal posts are on opposite ends.  :lol

I don't know if this is necessarily true in this case, but I have noticed this trend in various corners of the internet. For example, The Force Awakens has a terrific score of 8.1/10 or something on IMDB, but almost every user review is negative. :lol

As of this post, the poll puts ADTOE leading with 38.5%.

As far as people posting their opinions, (excluding those posts that aren't listing their ranks or favorites), ADTOE is leading with 34.3%.

Seems pretty good.

I haven't given enough listens to both TA and ADToE really, so hard for me to 100% judge.  But I totally love all of DT12, so that's #1 for me..  then probably SC, BC, then ADToE and TA.

This might change the most I listen to the 2 ....
