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.
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

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.

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 ....
