The quality of the arrangements in Symphonic Theater of Dreams is better than the orchestral section of Illumination Theory.  By a lot.  They should have used Mierzejewski on the album.

Take The Time has probably the worst keyboard solos on any DT song... god bless AROP compared to the solo sound KM uses.
Hey.
Get out.
Thanks  :heart

TLG is the second best song on DT12 and EM is much better than most give it credit for.

Yep, it's not quite on the same level as Overture 1928, TDOE and SOC, but still a great and extremely fun song :metal

Jordan is actually DT's tax advisor. He just happens to do their taxes on stage, that's why he has that iPad there.

Not at all.  I like the fact that it rocks and just feels like a fun song.  Good to drive to.

All right. Because I have heard statements in the past like, "Systematic Chaos is a lot of fun, but there's not a lot of depth to it, so I don't like it."  ::)

Funny you should mention SC.  I put it on while working out last night and forgot how much really good music there is on SC.  I would go as far as to say at this point, it is underrated by most DT fans.

100%. General forum opinion will sometimes make me think twice about it, but when I come back to listen to it, I think "Nah, this is pretty good".

The forum has actually made me appreciate SC more than I used to. It's still my least favorite DT album but I used to dislike it a lot more.

I can't imagine how. Most people here make it a point to crap on SC.

Wouldn't it be so delightful if this forum ended up being filled with SC supporters? I'd be very happy about that!

Whilst SC is in my bottom 3 albums, it's there because the other 9 I just prefer to it. It's a good album nonetheless.

Both New Millennium and Under a Glass Moon have great melodies, but are so boring.
Another World's original lyrics are, at least in part, more emotionally powerful.
Kevin Moore needs to get laid or something. His lyrics, while poetic, make me want to kill myself. It's like hanging around Marvin the Paranoid Android all the time.

:lol

I like SC a lot, I prefer other albums, but it has the uniqueness of being heavy while remaining very dynamic and not sludgy and somehow tiring like Train of Thought, which I also like but it feels sometimes too... dense to put it in a way. In that aspect Systematic Chaos is something I prefer when going for a heavy album. My only complaint is splitting ITPOE, as I like it more together. I chance the tracks to start off with either Forsaken or Constant Motion, and have all ITPOE at the end, makes for a much more enjoyable listen. I don't understand the hate for it anyway.

Oh, and by Another World I'm think he means the A Change of Seasons section, not Another Day. I don't agree BTW.

^ This

It, along with BC&SL (as they are often grouped together), are great albums on their own, but I just prefer some of their other albums to them.

Yeah this. I think that Another World '89 has a totally different theme to it from the lyrics that I can make out

+1

I rate it closer to the bottom of their discography just because they have a lot of amazing albums I love more, but SC deserves more cred than it gets.

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.
