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!

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

My first and only time voting against Octavarium in this entire league, both song and album.

Abstaining from the first pair since I think they both form the nadir of DT's output. Wouldn't be fair to place one above the other.

1.   Dream Theater vs. The Astonishing
2.   Falling into Infinity vs. Systematic Chaos
3.   A Dramatic Turn of Events vs. When Dream and Day Unite
4.   Awake vs. Black Clouds & Silver Linings
5.   Train of Thought vs. Distance over Time
6.   Metropolis Pt.2: Scenes from a Memory vs. Octavarium
7.   Images and Words vs. Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence

#2 was the only one that gave me any real trouble.  Not a fan of either album.  However, at the end of the day, Constant Motion is the only song on SC that I'd really go out of my way to listen to, while FII has 4-5 solid tracks, so....

It doesn’t surprise me. Both are great albums, but Distance Over Time is more stylistically diverse than Train of Thought. Someone can be into the heavier side of Dream Theater and still prefer DoT, but odds are someone who isn’t into Dream Theater’s heavier side won’t prefer ToT.
