For me itís Six Degrees, A Dramatic Turn, and Awake.

I always struggle with where to put Train of Thought. I absolutely love Endless Sacrifice and ITNOG, and the rest of the album is no slouch either, but itís one of the hardest albums for me to listen all the way through (maybe only SC and BCASL beating it in that regard). Itís just such a heavy handed album to sink into. Yeah Scenes is a long album too, but it has a great story and enough variety to keep things moving, with a tone that shifts around a bit. TOT has a lot of long, dark, heavy songs that kind of exhaust me after a while.

The first two for me were easy:
1. Awake
2. I&W

Third place was much more difficult, between M2, 6DOIT, 8V, ADTOE and D/T

M2 got my vote but only just from probably ADTOE

Top 3 are Images, Scenes and Awake in that order.  Itís unlikely that will ever change unfortunately as, whilst Dream Theater continue to release remarkably consistent high quality albums, theyíve kind of reached a plateau for me in recent years. All very good albums but nothing that threatens the big 3.

The albums and what (I think) I like most about them:

1. Six Degrees: My favorite version of DT; experimental, virtuostic, melodic, lyrically meaningful, all players at their best pushing boundaries
2. Metropolis Pt 2: Melodic, catchy riffs, re-ocurring themes, each song can stand-alone or as a part of the whole just as well, song-writing at its most cohesive
3. A Dramatic Turn of Events: Fresh, invigorating, melodic (I like this side of them alot), improved with each song, vocals on point, fantastic shorter quiet songs weaved in.
* Train of Thought was a close 4 today. Depending on my mood, I&W or Awake could be in the 3rd spot too. There is no doubt about 1 & 2 for me though, ever.
