Balls. Those who saw it got a treat. Wonder if LaBrie can still hit that F# in Learning to Live.

Check out Train of Thought. That whole album is pretty heavy. Just off the top of my head...The Dark Eternal Night is up there with the heavier ones.

I would say Nightmare to Remember or Train of Thought. Nightmare has a lot of downtuned guitar, some decent shredding, plenty of blast beats, and even the occasional Mike Portnoy attempting (Note, Attempting!) to growl while singing really bright lyrics. It's lovely.

Or just go with Train of Thought.

To me Honor Thy Father is the heaviest song overall, but Dark Eternal Night has the heaviest DT riff of all time at the end.

Check out this interview with Petrucci,

42 seconds in "if anything, I like him better"
I was pretty sure for a while that MP wasn't coming back but now I'm convinced.

It's kind of funny...Portnoy said he needed a break because he was worn out...yet he's recorded, released albums, and toured with two new bands he made after leaving. There's a lot we as fans of the band don't know regarding the split, but Mike really hasn't given anyone reason to believe his side of the story.

Can someone explain to me the whole john myung personality thing? It seems like he never talks with his bandmates, or talks at all really... Does he have aspergers? Im not hating, hes one of my favorite bassists, but it seems really wierd.

what would people call the most complex dream theater song? (thinking time signatures and rhythms not speed playing)

Dance of Eternity, definitely. It changes time signatures far too much.

yeah. There's that video of Portnoy counting out the time changes with his fingers and it's just ridiculous.

Octavarium is probably the most accessible, but Scenes from a Memory and Images and Words are what most would say are their best.

5:43 on this video made me a little happy. I always wonder how some of these bands simply just don't forget some parts
