Rate my DT Playlist: UPDATED
« on: December 23, 2017, 07:08:21 AM »
I had to cut a few favorites but this is a setlist I came up with to introduce some friends to one of my favorite bands of all time.  It is hard to get a playlist under 1:30 hours and this one clocks in at almost 3:30, but it includes their absolute best tracks, imo.  Give it a spin and let me know!

1. Metropolis Part 1
2. 6:00
3. The Mirror
4. The Glass Prison
5. This Dying Soul
6. The Silent Man
7. The Spirit Carries On
8. The Dance of Eternity
9. Breaking All Illusions
10. Trial of Tears
11. Learning to Live
12. Bridges in the Sky
13. Blind Faith
14. Fatal Tragedy
15. In the Presence of Enemies Part 1+2
16. Octavarium
17. A Change of Season

Well, as you said it's hard to be concise, there are many songs left out but the "worst" on here is still a fantastic track, so very good selection.

I find it however a bit unbalanced, with the two ballads back to back, I'd space it out more, like

1. Metropolis Part 1
2. The Mirror
3. The Glass Prison
4. This Dying Soul
5. The Silent Man
6. 6:00
7. Breaking All Illusions
8. The Dance of Eternity
9. Trial of Tears
10. Learning to Live
11. Bridges in the Sky
12. Blind Faith
13. Fatal Tragedy
14. The Spirit Carries On
15. In the Presence of Enemies Part 1+2
16. Octavarium
17. A Change of Seasons
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!

Agree to disagree (everyone has an opinion).  I would get rid of:

Mirror/Lie
Dying Soul
Lines in the Sand
ITPOE

Silent Man can stand by itself, but it feels incomplete without the other two parts of AMBI.  Add the following:

The Killing Hand
Scarred
Home
Blind Faith
As I Am and/or In the Name of God
Wither
Illumination Theory

I didn't check to see how much time these substitutions add or subtract.

I have made lots of DT play lists through the years that vary just depending on what I'm in the mood for.  I liked yours, even if I might do things a bit differently (e.g., I liked how you originally had TSCO->TDOE and would have moved The Silent Man if you wanted to space out the ballads; and it is very mega-epic heavy at the end, so I would probably move those around as well). 

I just found one on my work computer that I forgot that I made that is kind of fun.  I will have to go listen to it later.  It attempts to capture a lot of my favorites from the Roadrunner era.  Can't remember why I made it, but it looks kinda cool.  Goes like this:
Dystopian Overture
The Gift of Music
ITPOE (1 and 2)
Behind the Veil
The Count of Tuscany
A Better Life
Bridges in the Sky
Constant Motion
Along for the Ride
A Nightmare To Remember
Ravenskill
Forsaken
Outcry
Beneath the Surface
Our New World
Illumination Theory
