Layne Staley was a better vocalist than Kurt Cobain by far, and Alice in Chains (with Layne) was a much better band than Nirvana.

Haken's Affinity is better than every DT album since SDOIT.

Octavarium is Dream Theater's worst album.

Megadeth's Dystopia is better than any album by Metallica that came after Master of Puppets. Rust in Peace and Peace Sells are both better than anything Metallica has ever done.

Dunno if this is controversial. People on here say the same thing about every Haken album.  :lol

Wasn't sure if it really was. I don't mean to sound like I am bashing DT because I still love them, just kind of lost interest in them. I did actually enjoy The Astonishing though, from what I've read here, maybe that is controversial  :lol

It's definitely their worst album between ToT and SC.

Fates Warning is a better prog metal band that Dream Theater.
Van Halen is just an okay band.
Guns n Roses gets way more attention than they ever deserved.

I like Octavarium. It's solidly mid tier DT.

SC is my least favorite of them all, worse than the debut.

I don't think Octavarium is a bad album, I just never really cared for it much aside from one or two songs. I know a lot of people like to bash SC on this forum, but I think it's actually way more fun to listen to than Octavarium, as cheesy as it is. My problem with Octavarium is that most of it feels so bland to me.

Yea, your feelings toward Octavarium is how I feel about SC and vice versa. I really love the spacious production on 8vm and the more melodically driven songs.

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

This so much. I've seen a lot of love for this band and logically I should like them, but they just bore me.
people on this board are actual music fans who developed taste in music and not casual listeners who are following current fashion trends and listening to only current commercial hits.

I like Nevermind, but I agree. I don't think that's a controversial opinion around here though, since the AIC thread has got 10 pages, while there's no thread for Nirvana at all.
Fates Warning is a better prog metal band that Dream Theater.
Yup.

I disagree. It's close, with FII being my #3 and IAW #4, but I come back to FII noticeably more often than to IAW.

Oh, here's one: I find The Dear Hunter's Act II to be the least enjoyable of all the albums so far, including Migrant. It's also way overrated.

But. It's. The. One. With. Red Hands. On It.

Yes. And Red Hands is great but I agree with Super Dude, despite that I still prefer the other albums more. There is something I love about Act I that I can't put my finger on and I personally think Acts IV & V are a massive leap forward from Act III

The 70's is an overrated decade for music.
There's more to the universe than Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

I agree with the latter, not the former.

Don't worry it's just a Dear Hunter Fandom Joke/Meme that 'Red Hands' is the single greatest achievement in the history of the human race.
