Yeah, so we can hear "conscience fading" in like a dozen more songs.

Can't be much worse than reaching the water's edge every single album.

 ;D

I could only think of TMOLS, does it appear on other songs?  :huh:

EDIT: Okay, OTBOA has it :lol
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

Here's a controversial opinion...

DT are better live than in studio.

I've gone around and around with friends about this. It's not necessarily my opinion, but it's an opinion that sparks a lot of discussion.

Depends on what you mean by "better."  It just depends on your criteria and what you are looking for.  I think you can make the argument either way.

I've heard the criteria for the "DT is better live" camp. It comes down to this. Musically, the band is able to duplicate what's on the record. As a result, they enjoy the live audio better than the studio audio because there's a distinct sound of the band in a live concert.

I point out that MP used to change/not play certain fills in songs. Mangini will change some things here and there. Rudess changes keyboard leads on pre-Rudess material. LaBrie will sing a line differently and I'm sure JP and JMX change some things up too. I call it artistic liberty. So it's not an exact duplication. I will say that most of what they play is exact and it's spot on.

Enjoying a live experience is better than playing an album in your car or at home on a stereo. Maybe that's why some say DT is a better live band.

James sounds like a wounded dog badly live so I strongly disagree with them being better live but to each their own.

edit: bosky quoted me so editing it out doesn't do much good, so put me in the pillory, my friends :neverusethis:

Is it? It's an opinion. He sounds very bad live. There. Better? Three people agreed with me last night when I said he sounded very bad, so it's not an uncommon opinion. I love James, I love DT. He isn't good live, particularly when he is forced to sing older material. They should drop most of the old stuff for his benefit.

Opinion is fine, provided it is "constructive," as it says in the forum rules.  Just keep it respectful, as your latest post was more in line with.  Namecalling and offensive comparisons are not respectful or constructive.

Still, it's accurate. Chaos In Motion is painful to listen to, and that was 10 years ago. Maybe this is why... oh wait we can't talk about it yet.  :lol

Seriously, if they actually played less old material, James would fare so much better live. The IW&B tour was a good idea in theory and I'm glad I saw the music played live but it was very hard to listen to James sing most of the night. But, I have long advocated for less metal from DT, mostly because it doesn't do his voice any favors... that kind of ball-crunching high stuff is a young man's game. Rabble rabble, that's my two cents, carry on, etc.

I don't understand this opinion - and I have heard it before and always think this. I love listening to CIM. I listen when I bike ride or run, so there are no distractions and every time I think, wow, James really sounds good.

And, I seem to choose listening to the live material more than studio. I enjoy both.

Yup, it was pretty much painful for me as a DT fan to watch James on that tour. Barely hit a note. It was weird because I swear he did far better on the TA and DT12 tours. He pretty much nailed the Awake stuff in 2014 if I remember correctly.

Take away my pain is their worst song.

:iagree:

actually, fuck it, bottom 5:
#1. Take Away My Pain
#2. 2 Far
#3. Hollow Years
#4. Anna Lee
#5. Outcry

...i really don't like FII  :\

I don't know that I could come up with a bottom 5, but I can pick my least favorite on each album:

WDADU:  TOWHtStS
I&W:  Under a Glass Moon
Awake:  The Mirror or Lie
FII:  Hard to pick a least favorite because it's one of my least favorite albums, and I don't listen to it much, but I'll go with You Not Me (although I think You or Me is worse)
SFAM:  Hard to pick a least favorite because just about everything is great, but I'll to with The Spirit Carries On
6DOIT:  The Great Debate
TOT:  Either of the Portnoy songs
8VA:  I Walk Beside You or Never Enough
SC:  Repentance
BC&SL:  The Best of Times
ADTOE:  BMUBMD or This Is the Life
DT12:  It will be one of The Bigger Picture, Behind the Veil or Surrender to Reason (simply by process of elimination)
I can't pick one off The Astonishing

Least favorite from each:

Status Seeker (solid tune with some cool things going on)
Under a Glass Moon (great song from an all-time great record)
Lie (great song from their best album)
You Not Me (one of the few DT songs with more bad than good)
The Dance of Eternity (too mathematical and doesn't fit on the album)
The Great Debate (not good enough to support its length)
Honor Thy Father (this one has not aged well for me)
Never Enough (awful lyrics drag it down)
Constant Motion (great riff and guitar solo, icky everything else)
A Rite of Passage (not bad, just kind of bland)
On the Backs of Angels (decent song, but vocal melodies are lacking)
Along for the Ride (enjoyable song)
Losing Faythe (love the end, but the first 2/3 of the song seems too rehashed)

Alright I'm down for this:

Status Seeker (This was a tough one actually as I think all of WDADU songs are pretty good and even quality)
Surrounded (Don't really care for the keyboard patches used on this song)
Lie (I'm surprised but I think this song aged the worst, the solo is great though)
Just Let Me Breathe (Really closely tied with New Millennium)
The Spirit Carries On (Never cared for this song, however I'm a bit jaded because I'm also really tired of seeing it live)
Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence (Cheating a bit here but I think the second disc is overall weak)
Vacant (It's a good break in ToT but not a strong song on it's own)
I Walk Beside You (meh)
Prophets of War (This song has really grown on me but I still feel it's the weakest on SC)
On The Backs of Angels (it's a good song that just didn't click with me as much as the others)
The Bigger Picture (Not a terrible song, just the weakest of the bunch)

Might as well, right.

WDADU: Status Seeker
I&W: Under A Glass Moon
Awake: Caught In A Web
FII: Burning My Soul
SFAM: Regression (I guess since its the opening song, I paired it with Overture and SDV as one track)
6DOIT: The Great Debate (It's still a good song though)
ToT: Honor Thy Father (Although, I do like the instrumental section)
8vm: The Answer Lies Within (It reminds a lot of My Immortal by Evanescence)
SC: Constant Motion (The instrumental section is amazing though)
BC&SL: A Rite of Passage (Main Riff is great, just not enough to beat the others)
ADTOE: Build Me Up, Break Me Down (It may actually be one of my least favorite songs of thiers)
DT: The Looking Glass

SDOIT - The 6 Degrees Suite

WDADU - Status Seeker
IAW - Surrounded
AWK - The Silent Man
FII - Just Let Me Breathe
SFAM - Regression (only because I had to pick one)
SDOIT - Losing Time/Grand Finale (if you count disc 2 as separate songs. if not, probably Misunderstood, but I really like it)
TOT - Honor Thy Father (I like it)
OVM - Never Enough
SC - Prophets of War
BC&SL - A Rite of Passage
ADTOE - Far From Heaven
DT - Along for the Ride (I like it)
TA - Act of Faythe

WDADU - The Ones Who Help to Set the Sun
IAW - Another Day
AWK - Scarred
FII - New Millenium (one of the few DT songs I don't love, but I enjoy it from time to time)
SFAM - Through Her Eyes (although I really like the fretless bass here, I wish he used it more)
SDOIT - None, I absolutely love every second of the album

OVM - The Answer Lies Within
SC - None

Hmmm let's see. See if any of this can be controversial.

WDADU - The Killing Hand
IAW - Take the Time
Awake - uhhh I dunno. Love this album. I guess Lie?
FII - Just Let Me Breathe
Scenes - Spirit Carries On
SDOIT - Disappear
ToT - Endless Sacrifice
8VM - Panic Attack
SC - Any song other than Repentance. I dunno. ITPOE?
BC&SL - Count of Tuscany and Shattered Fortress. Both awful with a few cool sections.
ADTOE - This is the Life
DT - Eh, the whole album? I guess Surrender to Reason. It's all pretty bad though.
TA - I honestly can't tell most of these songs apart. It's a fine album but I can't pick out many individual songs off hand.

ALL OF THIS IS MY OPINION.

Good, now we can skip that part.

Why not... anything with a ??? means I love every song and don't have a 'least favorite'

1. WDADU - basically anything that isn't Afterlife. I don't like this album one bit except for that song
2. I&W - ???
3. Awake - Scarred and Voices; everything else is awesome
4. FII - Peruvian Skies
5. SFAM - Beyond This Life
6. SDOIT - ???
7. Train of Thought - Stream of Consciousness (way... too... freaking... long... and boring)
8. Octavarium - ???
9. Systematic Chaos - Repentance
10. BC&SL - A Rite of Passage
11. ADTOE - This Is The Life
12. Dream Theater - basically everything that isn't The Looking Glass
13. The Astonishing - Whispers on the Wind I guess? I dunno. Not really fair to pick a least favorite from this one

I&W - Metropolis Pt I. Yeah fight me. Not that I dislike it, but when an album is this perfect this one comes across as the one I love the less.
Awake - Scarred. Not that I dislike it too. I love it.
Falling into Infinity - Just let Me Breathe
Metropolis Part II: The Dance of Eternity
SDoIT - Goodnight Kiss. It isn't a bad song though
ToT - As I Am
Octa - Never Enough
SC - The Long Eternal Song
BCSL - A Rite of Passage. Might be my least favorite DT song ever.
ADTOE - Build Me Up, Break Me Down
DT 12 - Behind the Veil
Astonishing - Our New World
