Well, if you want to stick to 10, that's OK with me, Scurv.  But in that case, I don't really want to do one.
I was actually going to stick to 10, but not the top 10. Probably go with the ones that seem like they'll be most interesting. Starting a thread now.

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

Dagnammit. Could I take Disappear, Lines in the Sand or Surrounded if they're free? (in descending order of preference)

I wanted to write it a week ago but had some work to do and now it's Christmas so I was quite seriously lazy. I'll do it very soon, though.

I would guess many people have been pre-occupied with Christmas related stuff recently. If I knew we had to have them in, then of course I'd do it asap, but otherwise I've just had other things going on distracting me.

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

I think people need to get back into this now that the holidays are done.

Because I know my writeup will be appearing first, I figured I'd share what I wrote to give people ideas, and to remind them of what they signed up for.

----------

Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence is perhaps Dream Theater’s album that draws the most varying opinions. Split into two vastly different discs (one a 5-song disc of mostly experimental songs, and one a disc featuring a 42 minute song following a more traditional prog metal style), there was sure to be some fans at odds with each other over what songs were “good”. Appropriately enough, The Great Debate is all about split opinions. Detailing one of the great debates of our time, stem-cells, lyricist John Petrucci takes neither side. Instead he opts to simply show both sides of the argument, all the while aided by samples from left and right-wing figures. As a side note: the right wing samples are played through the right speaker, and vice-versa.

The standout player here is easily drummer Mike Portnoy. Delivering what I believe to be his finest work in Dream Theater, Mike does not stop for a moment in this song. The layers of complex cymbal work, the creative fills, and the unconventional time signatures would have made this song a nightmare for any other drummer. James Labrie also proves to be a very adaptive vocalist. The verses are mostly distorted or sung with a sharper edge, while the choruses fit his more traditional high-register style. Jordan Rudess and John Petrucci both get to trade solos, as well.

Despite being among the top 40 Dream Theater songs, The Great Debate has a very split opinion among the fanbase (indeed). Common criticism is that the song becomes very sample-heavy during the intro and outro, which some find drags on for too long. I, for one, enjoy the different feel to the song, which is only heightened by being among the varied songs on the first disc of Six Degrees.

When does this whole thing go down? I just hope that I haven't been expected to turn one in yet because I haven't started writing it yet.

If possible to do another I'd like to do Stream of Consciousness, and if that's not available then Raise the Knife or Strange DejaVu.
