Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

They make terrible music sometimes, but they are not druggies.

i cant imagine anyone taking drugs, that has that much control over his respective instrument, to be honest. i dont really like their music, but anyone has to admit, each member of that band is in the respective top 5 of his instrument, technique wise at least.
#12
They've never made terrible music, and even their worst stuff is better than 99.9 % of what you hear on commercial radio. None of them do drugs. They are all religious, married, and have kids. Portnoy used to be an alcoholic, but is now clean. If any of them were to have done drugs in the past it would have been Portnoy.


Dark star, now I realize why you made that statement. You are a complete moron. Here is a quote from his profile "Black Sabbath and Black Sabbath only. All other bands sux. "

1) Holy moly, you are a hardcore DT fanboy.
2) The Black Sabbath only thing is sarcasm. Your detector. It is broken.
3) DT is one of my favorite bands. Systematic Chaos and the new album suck balls.

yeah. what's the friggin' reason for that. i don't know why they closed this in the pit. it's a pretty legit question. and it helps in new metal fans to know that they have to say NO.

seriously you're the moron

Systematic Chaos is strong in the intrumental section, but weak in the lyrics, and vocals. Black Clouds is a good album minus wither (which is decent), The shattered fortress (redundant), and some corny lyrics.

Maybe because a bit of rudimentary searching would have provided the answer to your question. Also because this is quickly becoming a "do you like Dream Theater's music" thread along with the obligatory flaming.

And who has to say NO to what now?

EDIT: ^^^ Nope, reeks is the correct word in this instance. lrn2english.

^ Is it coinkidinks that a lot of DT songs sound like ripoffs from Permanent Waves?

Quote by Petrucciowns
Complete nonsense.


Sometimes they make garbage. Just because every member of the band is a musical genius doesn't mean that the conglomeration is a musical genius.

Permanent waves is a great album, but I see no similarity with any of their songs. Yes they were a big influence on them, but ripoff? There are some real haters in here.

Any self respecting metal fan will not allow themselves to come to such levels of fanboyism as seen in this thread.

Please don't parade around the internet with the whole "DT can do no wrong" attitude. They have done wrong. They are doing wrong. And they will do wrong. End of. They're not that good.

I didn't say ripoff, I said Tribute. Ripoff implies they did something slightly different.
