That's like me Loving PoW. And not really loving TGP as much as most.

Everyone's different. I personally don't care for 8VM too much. TROAE is great, these walls is good and Panic Attack is great, but the rest of the album is pretty boring to me. As far as the 20 min+ songs go , 8VM is waaaay at the bottom of the list.

This thread makes me cringe. These two albums are DT's best imo.
Learning to Live sounds like wank? :lol :lol :lol :lol
This. Seriously.


You say you were blown away by The Ministry of Lost Souls. And you complain about supposed wank in other songs. LOLWUT!?


This too.

Also, what's wrong with Another Day and Surrounded? Someone earlier said they were "terrible" songs. How can you even say that? I understand you may not like them, but terrible...

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I think that in some cases, prejudice and close mindedness(I'm pretty sure everyone has both to some extent) affects some people's opinions in songs.

I once really disliked I&W, when I first heard Metropolis I thought to myself "WTF WAS UP WITH HIS VOICE?!" and I also found Another Day and Surrounded extremely cliché. After exploring more music outside of Images And Words, I listened to the album with a more open mind. I can now appreciate every single song.

I always liked SFAM.

I like half of Images and Words. Pull Me Under, Metropolis, Wait For Sleep and Learning To Live; these songs helped me get into Dream Theater in the first place. The other four songs, though? Never got into them. I understand people love them, but they've always bored me.

Well, I love Images And Words, and don't think that SFAM is particularly great. So I can only agree on half of it, sorry.

You are my new bff ;D

@OP Just my very personal opinion, but I just don't connect as a listener to SFAM at all. Perhaps my least favorite DT album. (DTF guillotine, here I come)

I love I&W, though I prefer A, FII, and 6 over it.

I don't like Scenes at all, though, aside from Home, Dance of Eternity, and Fatal Tragedy.

I think IAW is way overrated even though it's definitely in DT's top 5.  SFAM on the other hand, seems to be really underrated.
"All great works are prepared in the desert, including the redemption of the world. The precursors, the followers, the Master Himself, all obeyed or have to obey one and the same law. Prophets, apostles, preachers, martyrs, pioneers of knowledge, inspired artists in every art, ordinary men and the Man-God, all pay tribute to loneliness, to the life of silence, to the night." - A.

I've never been a fan of Scenes From A Memory.   Production just doesn't win me over.

I've come to a conclusion: I hate you all.







Joking aside, your DT album rankings are terrible. Therefore, I hate you all.

Obviously you aren't. But I can't see why you put Systematic Chaos at #3, when the only songs I can listen to off that album are The Ministry of Lost Souls, Repentence and The Dark Eternal Night (and even then, the only one that has a frequent spin is TMoLS). Overall, I would rank them as such:

1.) Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence
2.) Scenes from a Memory
3.) Images & Words
4.) When Dream and Day Unite
5.) Black Clouds and Silver Linings
6.) Awake (although, to be honest, I never gave it all that many listens)
7.) Octavarium
LARGE GAP
8.) Train of Thought
9.) Falling Into Infinity (same as Awake)
10.) Systematic Chaos

2.) Awake
3.) Falling Into Infinity
4.) Images And Words
5.) 8thalbum
(Gap of sorts)
6.) When D&D Unite
7.) Chaotic Systems
8.) Thinking Train
9.) BC&SL
10.) Metro 2: Electric Boogaloo
