Eh, I'll see if I can find Octavarium used and give it another shot.
I don't really like Summoning that much either except for Stronghold.
I don't quite understand the meaning of *FACEPALM*.
I love WD&DU. They had not fully formed their own identity yet though. The vocalist sounds like a Geddy Lee with a much wider ranged & there are numerous Queenstryche influences throughout. There are some great songs on there. It used to be my favorite DT, but now it's more like my 4th favorite.
Octavarium is indeed their worst... The title track tries to be all magestic & fails, although it has one section I am particulary fond of. I'm not a very big fan of 6DoIT, ToT, or Systematic Chaos either. I think Falling Into Infinity is superior to all 4 of these albums. Maybe not in technicality, but it's superior to me for the fact that I can listen to it in it's entirety without getting bored by it. It seems to flow better.
Train of Thought is my favorite of theirs
Scenes of a Memory is easily their best album. I love FII, most DT fans think its the "cool" thing to dislike that album... bit dumb really.
My drummer friend prefers ToT to all their other albums, but he likes them all.
I'm split between Awake & SFAM... They're two of the greatest albums ever made IMO I like FII a lot too, but it still falls behind WD&DU, I&W & ACoS. DT album abbreviations FTW.
You people suck I swear. This is the obvious and correct order of their discography:
1. Images And Words
2. Scenes From A Memory
4. Systematic Chaos
5. Six Degress Of Inner Turbulence
7. Train Of Thought
8. When Dream And Day Unite
9. Falling Into Infinity
edit: Systematic Chaos could easily be tied @ #3 for me as well. That album is so underrated.
A Change of Seasons slays hard. It should be included among their albums for obvious reasons
Well, it's only one original song on the thing, so probably not
fyi you spelled cumeth wrong
It's a play on words
The Ozzman Cometh (in your Bumeth)
That one long ass song is one of the best things they've ever done. It's also a long disc because it's loaded with cool covers. It's their only EP too. Most of the time it is ranked with their albums because of it's epicness.
It's not all that different from my list, I'd merely place SDoIT above Awake and WDaDU above ToT. I think I also might prefer SC over Awake.
And yes, A Change of Seasons is damn awesome.
Did anyone else ever notice that a lot of newer Dream Theater songs blatantly rip off Muse? It's especially funny because the time period where they started doing it coincides with the interviews they did where they talked about how cool Muse was.
