Not a lot of songs high up on my DT list here. Beneath the Surface is in my Top 10. Not sure if anything else is in my Top 25.

From this list:
Beneath the Surface
On the Backs of Angels
Hollow Years
Build Me Up, Break Me Down
Forsaken
As I Am

Weaker selection of songs than the first list. The first 6 were simple picks, then there were a few contenders for the last spot. I went for:

On the Backs of Angels
The Gift of Music
The Enemy Inside
This Dying Soul
Constant Motion
As I Am
Forsaken

This is the Life and Beneath the Surface just missing out. I also would have put Hollow Years in there if it was just based on the Budokan version.

On the Backs of Angels
Dystopian Overture
The Gift of Music
New Millennium
Hollow Years
This Dying Soul
A Better Life

Runner-ups: All of them. The only two songs I'm not a fan of here are Honor Thy Father, Forsaken, and The Looking Glass, and even those are alright.

These polls really remind me of just how much I like Dream Theater's like...entire discography.

Once again, not an easy choice, but I chose:
Raise the Knife
Never Enough
Honor Thy Father
Enigma Machine
This Dying Soul
Dystopian Overture
Forsaken
As a basic rule, if you hate it, you must solely blame Portnoy. If it's good, then you must downplay MP's contribution to the band as not being important anyway, or claim he's just lying. It's the DTF way.

Not a lot of songs high up on my DT list here. 

That was the point of this particular poll, to have mostly songs that you rarely see listed among their favorites.  The good songs that aren't favorites of the collective fan base deserve some love as well.  :hat

These polls really remind me of just how much I like Dream Theater's like...entire discography.

Same here.  Sure, there are a few albums that, to me, are the definitely the weakest of the bunch, but there is still a lot to like on those albums.

Not too difficult. Couldn't even pick more than 5.

I Walk Beside You (this barely made it)
Beneath the Surface
Raise the Knife (only obvious choice)
Anna Lee
Wither

I could live without the others.

I love "simple" DT, being a master musicians means also to know how to get simple  :metal
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!
