The only song missing from my top 10 DT tracks in this poll is ITPOE (both parts combined).

Learning to Live
Metropolis
Octavarium
In the Name of God
Breaking All Illusions
Take the Time

Those first 6 were automatic picks. The last spot was really close between Illumination Theory, A Change of Seasons and The Count of Tuscany. I'm gonna go with IT, though the answer could have been different on a different day.
Whoaaaahh, ohhh, ohhhhh. Whoaaaahh, ohhhhh, ohhhhhh. Waaah, ahhh, haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaowwwwww

And also literally everything else on this list, give or take the Stream / Enemies / Sand sequence near the end (not that I dislike them, just not completely in love like with everything else)
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!

Very difficult, but also made somewhat easier by having so many epics on the list that were immediate picks.

Oh wow. Definitely top-heavy, this list. When I first opened the thread, I immediately ticked the first 5 boxes, before deciding to untick Metropolis and replace it with 6DOIT.
And you may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Definitely the most difficult of the polls. Ultimately, I went with:
Home
A Change of Seasons
The Count of Tuscany
Learning to Live
In the Presence of Enemies, Part 1
Lines in the Sand
The Glass Prison

Honorable mentions to Voices, Scarred, Blind Faith, Breaking All Illusions, Bridges in the Sky and Trial of Tears
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.

If In The Presence of Enemies had been available as one piece, I would have traded it for Metropolis.

This was actually the easiest one for me since these 7 songs are all in my top 10.

I think all of these have shown up in prior polls, so I guess this a best of the best (plus Lines in the Sand).

Home - Favorite song on probably my favorite album.

ACOS - The first and probably still best of DT's side-long epics.

Metropolis - The first song that really told me this band was on a complete other level than any other band.

Breaking All Illusions - Probably my favorite MM-era song.

Scarred - This song always seemed like an under the radar classic.  Definitely a top-10 DT song for me.

Stream of Consciousness - My favorite of DT's instrumentals.

Octavarium - It was either this or Illumination Theory.  On another day, IT might have nosed out 8VA.

There were many other good options. But in the end, these seven are all pure unadultered perfection. ;D
