1. Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence
1a. Awake
1b. Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From a Memory
2. A Dramatic Turn of Events
2a. Images and Words
3. Dream Theater
4. Train of Thought
5. Falling Into Infinity
6. Octavarium
7. Systematic Chaos


11. Black Clouds & Silver Linings
12. When Dream and Day Unite

Way to not follow simple rules. :lol :lol

Yeah, can't believe I didn't see this before today!  :lol No matter, I worked it out. What I did is I split your first, second and third place points equally amongst your three that are tied for first (so each one got 11 points), and split your fourth and fifth place votes equally amongst your two that are tied after that (so each one got 8.5 points). Then I made DT12 your #6, because that's how it works with ties, and so on.

In any case. I'm just finishing up with the calculations, so expect to see a new thread with the results in a few minutes now.

I'm impressed you put so much thought into my ranking, 425. Thanks.

As Kev points out, I clearly didn't follow the rules so you would have been perfectly justified in simply changing my numbers to 1-12...which is what I expected to happen.

No problem! It wasn't too hard to make it work once I thought about it a little.
