Here's two new ones from me:

SFAM, while it has some really good songs, is REALLY corny in spots.

Oh, and the orgasm samples in Home just kill it for me.

SFAM is my second favourite DT album, and I don't find either of these too controversial.

But I love corn. Well, musical corn, not regular corn. It's like wtf, why am I seeing you again? Don't you even digest?

Agreed, although it's my 4th favorite album.

Ragtime = Corny/Cheesy.

Through Her Eyes, especially because of the drum machine. It almost sounds like soft porn music, which is kinda appropriate I guess, but I digress. Theresa's contribution also adds to the cheesiness. Same goes for TSCO, which I really like, in spite of it being one of the most kitschy DT songs ever, besides Hollow Years.

Same here, it actually was my ringtone for a year.

Nah, TSCO is just a great song. And there's nothing wrong wrong with Theresa's contribution.  :laugh: YOU HEARD MY CONTRO-CONTROVERSIAL OPINION

And the music itself is looped so well that it's completely hypnotizing.

There is a 10 hour version on there if you're feeling especially romantic. If you find yourself in need of a lover, all you need to do is drive around until you spot someone, blast this loop, roll down the window, suck in your cheeks Yngwie Malmsteen style and just sharply look at the person and he/she will just get in the car. Works eeeeevery time.

Yeeeeeeeeees! I had no idea those two would blend so well. :lol

There are several DT songs that I don't really care about, such as Space Dye Vest, Finally Free, Sacrificed Sons, The Great Debate, Forsaken, Endless Sacrifice and all of the songs on WDADU (except maybe for Ytse Jam). I simply don't feel the need to listen to any of those songs, that are among the worst (or least good  ::) ) DT songs.

What. The. Hell.

Speaking about Endless Sacrifice: it's my #1 DT song.

I used to pretty much feel the same way about The Great Debate, it took a long time to grow on me. Sometimes I just fast forward the first few minutes when I want to listen to it, but then again I guess that doesn't really say anything good about the song.  :lol The chorus is awesome though, I think James' vocals are the highlight of the song  :tup Portnoy does a decent Danny Carey impression as well.

It's a good song, but even if it weren't for the lengthy intro, I'd still consider it the weakest track on the album.

wasteland

It's the second strongest for me, and the lenghty intro is an absolute album highlight  :omg:

Is this something highly controversial?

That is a tough one. I heard plenty of people who'd agree with you. But personally, I think they're crazy! Victims of inner turbulence, clearly.

I wouldn't go as far as saying an album highlight, but when I'm in the mood for it, the intro is awesome and sets the song up very nicely. Sometimes I don't have the patience to sit through it though  :lol

I like it when I'm listening to the cd as a whole, but that's just one of those songs I wouldn't play for the sole purpose of jamming to it like I would with the other DT songs. Strangely enough, Awake, SFAM and SDOIT are my top#3 DT albums, and I included one song of each on the "meh" songs list  :P

This is probably a horrible way to have a first post, but here are my apparently very controversial opinions, which will probably become worse as I get older and nostalgia sets in:
    I love Black Clouds and Silver Linings
    A Dramatic Turn of Events has to be one of my least favorite albums
    Petrucci is way too loud live, at least in my experience (the two shows that make me believe this are the Palladium show on July 10, 2010, and the Paramount show on July 19, 2012)
    Jordan's solos, especially in more recent years, need more rhyme and reason. They are starting to sound very random and noisy
    Most Portnoy hate is unwarranted
    Dominici completely ruins When Dream and Day Unite. It's a damn shame too, because the music that I've been able to stomach is quite awesome.
    MOST of Awake bores me
    John Petrucci can't sing whatsoever. (See: Sacrificed Sons on Score)

I love Black Clouds too. Of course, I also love ADTOE....

Dominici's pretty good. He's no LaBrie, but overall his performance was quite good, in my opinion.

Awake is awesome. Though not at first. It takes a while to open up.

I see what you're saying about Jordan's solos, but I still like 'em.

Lol John definitely cannot sing (Wither JP vocal demo had AUTOTUNING.  :facepalm:)
