    Train of Thought is the best DT album other than I&W

    Yes IaW is the best DT album.

    New Revocation is fucking sick. Maybe a top 10 release this year.

    New Revocation is awful. I tried really hard to listen to that mess. Will not play it again.

    Yeah, its fucking terrible. It was released on my birthday, too. That still doesn't make it less shitty, though.

    Not necessarily metal but I realized I kinda hate Rush, can't stand the guy's voice. Tom Sawyer was a kickass song and I'm sure a few others as well, but nahh. Not for me. Overrated.

    There is not one thing over rated about Rush. Phenomenal band worth each bit of over the top fan boi praise.

    Been a long time since I've listened to Dream Theater but I really liked A Change of Seasons.

    I think Rush's catalog is better than Zeppelin's.

    Definitely. Robert Plant's voice grates on my nerves more often than not.

    Why us 2?

    It's just a crap album. Its like a phoned in Lamb of God on cheap steroids mixed with some shit ass mallcore tainted version of At The Gates

    Top that with the quality of their previous efforts and how could one enjoy it? I'd have liked it when I was 14, maybe. But no, not now. Not in my more enlightened and experienced state. Not as a matured fan of metal. Nope. Gay.

    I've never been able to get into Rush. Tried a couple times and liked them, but never saw the magic.

    Ya, this album was a huge disappointment. They decided to make a rock album with bits of metal thrown in.





    Did you listen to Vast Oceans Lachrymose? That was an amazing album.

    Rush has a lot of kickass songs; yeah Geddy Lee has an annoying voice but you have to look past it.

    Also, people like Dream Theater? :yuk::ill:

    'Looking past' crucial parts of a band's sound isn't something I can do. His voice really works in a few songs, which is why I finally gave the high-acclaimed Moving Pictures a try, but I was drastically disappointed with how not mind blowing that album was. Less than halfway through I was sick of his voice.

    Also yeah, Rush and Led Zeppelin are kinda totally different and I also find LZ overrated/awful. I thought Immigrant Song and Kashmir were sweet though.
