Portnoy just has stayed in DT for this long because he wanted to finish the Twelve-step Suite. As soon as it was done, he did a tour and then the band should call it's day (this part did not work out). Nothing else to say and all that.

Second part of the controversial opinion: five years later he would regroup the band to do a worldwide tour to play just the Twelve-step Suite (and 2 or 3 other songs), and release a live album. Or maybe a "best of" - with just the songs from the suite.

ive got a phew things

SC is underrated, one of my favorite DT albums, SC>IAW
i dont like IAW nearly as much as most people do, the only songs on it i really like are pull me under and metropolis pt 2
pull me under is good but not nearly DT's best song
the ministry of lost souls is one of my fav DT songs, top 10

:huh:

It's obviously just a typo..

Correct, just a typo lol, i meant metropolis pt 1

I don't agree with any of this.

But you have a Chroma Key avatar. What to do, what to do.

Technically, it's more of a theory than an opinion.

I agree the second part is quite stupid...  ;D (but possible)

But I believe in the first part!  :corn

I disagree with the first theory and I think the second is utter madness, but the reason behind this post of mine is complimenting you on your very good avatar  :tup

Saved by Moore! Again!  :hefdaddy

But aren't the most incrongruous opinions the funniest?  :biggrin:

EDIT:

So let me give you some controversial OPINION, and not some paranoic theory:

Charlie Dominici first album - 03 trilogy part one - is amazing, it is better than WDADU, SC, 8VM, 6DoIT, etc.

:hat

Hmm, I've only heard Part 3, but it's really good. Not sure that I'd rank it over many DT albums though.

It is good, isn't it? I was really impressed! It seems everyone who spent some time at DTLand has some magic in him.

The first album is just vocal + acoustic guitar, but it has some very good lyrics (better than part 2 or 3), and he is quite good playing. The album reminds me something of Springsteen's Nebraska.

Panic Attack and This Dying Soul are top tier DT metal songs.

I agree with TDS, but not PA at all. I thought it was more controversial to dislike PA than it is to like it personally.

Shadow Ninja 2.0

A lot of people seem to dislike Panic Attack. :dunno:

I find SFAM very difficult to listen to now. I used to be obsessed with it, like most of you guys.

Yeah, they're both awesome. :2metal:

The more I hear it, the more I realize that TEI has absolutely nothing wrong with it.

The lyrics almost ruin it for me, save Home and The Spirit Carries On.

I&W is junk, along with Awake
Systematic Chaos is their best album, Forsaken the best song
Erotomania is their worst instrumental, SOC being the best
New Millenium and You Not Me are the best from FII
TDEN lyrics rocks
Repentance is the best song from the 12 step suite
SFAM doesnt catch my attention
Octavarium is better than ACOS

Dear God... :(

TheGreatPretender

I agree with the Erotomania comment. And the Octavarium comment.

Kotowboy

Yes. Octavarium is so superior to A Change Of Seasons it's not funny.

I like it.  Never Enough is worse. I'm surprised LaBrie didn't gasp between every line to really seal the deal.

aprilethereal

Never Enough is great, the instrumental section is plain awesome. And I like the lyrics.

After two years of SFAM obsession, Finally Free might be my new favourite from that album, superseding Home (not sure if that's controversial at all).

I'll take these two things. I never got what is so great about Erotomania. I thought I heard SOC repeats too much; Erotomania does that to me; the chromatic riff does not a whole lot for me.

NM was the song that really got me into DT. Thus, it is prob my fav from FII.

Jaq

The Enemy Inside's mix and master is perfectly fine.

:P

I have a lot of them:

-WDADU is full of amazing songs that are almost unlistenable due to the production
-SC is an amazing album, Constant Motion and Prophets of War are both amazing songs
-BC&SL is an amazing album as well, with no bad songs, and the 2 epics are both in contention for best DT songs
-Surrounded is a terrible song with no redeeming qualities, one of my least favorite DT songs
-Probably not controversial, but ADTOE is a perfect album, every song is legendary, and it MAY eventually pass I&W as my #1 DT album
-TEI is a VERY average song, and is infinitely inferior to OTBOA, which may be DT's best single ever
-Awake is an average album with a lot of songs I don't like, and not a single song I would consider a DT classic

I don't fit in here.

These are the ones I violently disagree with.
