Hello everyone!!

I'm new here, I'm french so I appologise for my english... ;D
My name is Sylvain and I live near Paris.I am a big fan of DT since 1994 and the release of "Awake".

At the time I was listening to some hard rock fm bands like Bon Jovi (yes, at one time they played hard rock, but not anymore... :facepalm:), Whitesnake, Cinderella, Winger, or other bands like Queensryche, Megadeth, Aerosmith or Tesla...I don't really remember how I heard of DT, all I remember is that I was very curious to listen "Awake", after reading all these good reviews and subjects about them in the press.
And of course, when I first listened to Awake I was totally dazzled, and this is how I fell in love with the band.

Now I am 41 years old and and if I don't really listen hard rock anymore, I remain faithful to DT, because once you have tasted their music you can't live without it!! :heart

Today I listen mostly pop or rock bands like Depeche Mode, Simple Minds, Manic Street Preachers, Queen, Texas...And, as a long time fan of Bon Jovi, if I am disgusted by the "candy pop orientation" of the band (thanks a lot Jon... :censored), I remained a big fan of guitarist Richie Sambora, his solo albums are outstanding, as his work on classic rock albums like "New Jersey", "Slippery when wet" or "Keep the faith" of course!! :metal

Movies are my other passion.

To be honest I'm a little worried about how I will be received here, because I'm not an "usual" fan of DT when it comes about my favourites albums of the band...

"Metropolis 2000" is not part of my favourites albums, and I do not like "Black clouds and silver linings"!!
I hope you will forgive me... ;D

"Awake", "Images and words", "6DOIT" and "Train of thought" and "Falling into infinity" remains the albums I listen the most.

I really liked "ADTOE", but I will go to the thread dedicated to the album to talk about it...

See ya soon!! ;)
OH MY GOD, I'M WATCHED!!!

Welcome! Don't worry, the prog metal crowd is the majority of the forum but almost all of us have eclectic tastes, and there's loads of people who appreciate pop and rock :)

Welcome! And as the other said, don't be afraid of having unconventional ideas (and liking IAW, Awake and SDOIT aren't considered as such here), it's always welcome and refreshing to read about them.

See you around  :tup

No worries, all kinds of opinions are welcome here - that's why this place is called a discussion board. And as wasteland said, I&W, Awake and Six Degrees are all popular albums. Hopefully you'll enjoy your time here! :)

I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

I haven't played it due to my lack of a DS, but I hear that it's great. I mean, some of the characters even made it into Dream Drop Distance.

Yeah, it's amazing. Kingdom Hearts is my favorite video game series, but TWEWY is probably my favorite single video game. Absolutely phenomenal game. :metal

I might have to look around and borrow a DS then. It's going to be tough to beat Kingdom Hearts 2 though. 8 years later and it's still a game that I find ridiculously fun. :)

Greetings.

After lurking around for a while and getting a feel for the place, I figured I'd actually start contributing myself. Seems like a lot of forums with a big focus on metal quickly turn into a cesspool of immaturity. Doesn't seem to be the case around here though, which is nice  :)

So I'm a guy in my mid thirties. A lifelong metalhead, although as I get older I find my taste in music ever expanding. Firmly rooted in rock music though, which will probably always feel like "home".

And yes, a big fan of Rush as you can probably guess  :biggrin:
