    A discussion to this effect was going down on another board around here. Curious to see what you all think. If you're feeling really energetic, post 'em ranked 1-3 in addition to voting.

    EDIT: PoS was initially part of the title... but something got fucked up. Anyway! They're still part of the poll.

    I actually tried to put that in (as well as PoS in the thread title) but stuff got fucked up.

    For the record, I can't stand two of these three.

    PoS runs circles around the two other *'s (censored to avoid a shit-throwing thread)

    I detest PoS. I'd take DT's 2nd and 3rd album and Symphony X's Damnation Game and The Odyssey and that's about it for these bands.

    if "take the time" was dream theater's only song, they'd be better than 90&#37; of metal bands

    where's that retarded Liquid Tension faggot to talk about how much better POS is than Pink Floyd again

    edit: and if I actually had to vote it'd go to DT for their older stuff, but Symphony X and especially POS are rubbish. at least POS has a fitting acronym to its name.

    PoS has some interesting stuff, Dream Theater is stale and boring to me, and Symphony X just blows.

    Pain of Salvation gets my vote, they are kind of a guilty pleasure of mine, of course they are a gay and pussified nu prog band but they have some good ideas and musical variation, some songs are actually pretty good. Early DT(Images & Words and Awake) is decent at best, otherwise they suck immensely, and Symphony X is awful.
