Wasn't there a thread not too long ago where we ranked DT's "epics" or voted for our favorites?

Ranking the epics: ACOS> Illumination Theory > Octavarium > Six Degrees >>>>>>>>>>>>>ITPOE

I genuinely don't get the love for A Change Of Seasons... and I've listened to it like 3 times.

1. Octavarium
2. Six Degrees
3. Illumination Theory ( Although I prefer The Count of Tuscany if we're counting it )
4. In The Presence Of Enemies
5. A Change Of Seasons.

Octavarium
The Count of Tuscany
A Change of Seasons

Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence

In the Presence of Enemies
Illumination Theory

I just really don't like The Count of Tuscany minus a minute or two here and there. I'm not super fond of either of the last two songs, but Enemies just has more moments I enjoy.

I feel the same way about IT.  As far as I'm concerned, IT may as well not even exist.  :angry:

I don't even count TCOT as one of the epics.  For me, it's just a long song, like ITNOG or TMOLS.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

This would be a great time for DT to release some Official Bootlegs. I miss them so much and the fact that live concerts are a year away or two makes more sense to release some (as well as the London show that was filmed earlier this year).

I'd love it if they remotely recorded and released a short EP with 3 or 4 songs (depending on their length) from unused ideas or whatever they already have lying around this year. Write some lyrics about the current status of the world and you have a wonderful EP while we wait for the next album/tour cycle.

I get the feeling only MP was very keen on releasing those official bootleg shows. I think the others esp JP only want to release live material that is shot and edited professionally. That's the impression I alwyas had.

I've seen 8V, 8VA and 8VM.

8VA is how octave is represented in musical notation (and 8V is also sometimes used), so it's not really a good candidate.  8VM is a good choice, but it's a bit of a "whatever" thing.

8VRM is a weird one as you could literally take one more second to type out the whole word.
