I haven't heard all of them, but IMO Awake is their best, followed by Scenes From a Memory, followed by Images and Words. (Those are the only 3 I've heard every single song on, I'm waiting for ToT and Six Degrees to come in the mail)

Images and Words, Awake and Scenes from a Memory are their best. Train of Thought was pretty good too.

It's hard to pick a fave song of DT .... but for the time being it'd probably be "Through Her Eyes" or "Dance of Eternity"

for their best album, it really depends on what you're looking for.

If you like the heavier stuff, go for Awake or Train of Thought.

For more progressive kind of stuff, go for Images and Words, or possibly Scenes From A Memory

For one bloody awesome freakin' long song, go for Scenes From A Memory or Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence.

I don't know much about falling into infinity or when dream and day unite though.

and if you like their instrumental songs, definitely check out the band Liquid Tension Experiment. It's basically Dream Theater with a different bassist, playing instumental. Very awesome.

I liked the vocals on In the Name of God...James LaBrie did not have any annoying spots, like a lot of the stuff he does.

And The Spirit Carries On was just beautiful. Also a perfect LaBrie moment.

They're still together, and they recently finished their Train Of Thought tour, and are now in the studio recording a new album. They could very well be done recording by now though, as it often takes them as little as 3 weeks to record their cds.

for more information, check out their website at www.dreamtheater.net

it's quite excellent, and there you can find stuff about them. each of the band members have sites too. www.mikeportnoy.com often has new information about what they're up to, and he also has lots of cool videos and songs on his site too.

And is that pic of Portnoys kit the most recent one around? Cause on the Budokan dvd, he had a bunch of extra drums on the right side of his kit that he used in his 'duel' with jordan on 'beyond this life'. The kit seemed to be about the same size, but with more drums crammed in there.

hey. Last time it was sped up versions of DT songs. This time its hilariously bad covers of DT by some guy, who I'm guessing is Italian.

http://joesandalo.altervista.org/listamp3.htm

just go down to where it says "Vol.3 DREAM THEATER".

I was laughing my ass off all day from these. Definately the worst vocals I have ever heard. I recommend listening to Take the Time and Learning To Live


Edit: parts of Another Day are quite hilarious also.

I think they can all play each others instruments to a point, there's a clip on 5 Years in a LIVEtime that is of Perfect Strangers where they've switched? but then again, its not that complicated of a song for DT

I find 13 minutes is too long for a song. But luckily there rock hard enough for the 13 minutes too be good, i counldnt imagine listening to 50 cent for 13 minutes

this is Portnoy's most recent kit. the "Siamese Monster". Hes had about 3 others of roughly the same size. The last one was the "Purple Monster" I believe. He changes to a larger kit after every 2 studio albums (at least thats what hes done before), so I suspect he'll get a new kit for this tour.

I think that the album is done. He asked the forumers at www.mikeportnoy.com if they thought it should be 60 minutes long or 80 minutes in a poll, which led everyone to believe that there was already 80 minutes of music already.


to Tapmaster: if you don't like the idea of a song 13 minutes or longer, I don't suggest that you get 6 Degrees of Inner Turbulance, or A Change Of Seasons.

Is anyone else completely annoyed by the end of Pull Me Under? On the cd (at least on mine) it kinda just cuts out, it pisses me off.

Yes, that ending is annoying. It sounds like they wanted the song to fade out, but forgot to fade it out.
