    Breaking all the illusions ranks #1 for me on this album, not yet sure overall but at least top 10.

    High expectation on this one and it is really AWESOME.

It's not only the lyrics, this guy has a good hand choosing songs to write lyrics to. Until now every song with JMX Lyrics is a DT Tier 1!

[quote=Soulfire]Haven't heard Breaking All Illusions yet but I am a fan of the JMX lyrics. Not as much as Kevin Moore though. To me, his lyrics are absolutely amazing and the stuff he penned for some of their songs is just absolutely incredible (Lie and Space Dye Vest come to mind - great lyrics).

Sometimes JP's lyrics get a bit... meh... for me. It's like sometimes he tries to hard? I mean most of the time its okay, but there's a few really cheesy DragonForcey moments... Some parts of the Dark Eternal night Spring to mind.

Now all we need is some lyrics from JR! i'd be really keen to hear those actually.[/quote]

Oh man, if JR will write lyrics it will be like my dream and my day unite :)

The lyrics on BAI are truly amazing, as every JM lyric. I wonder to what extent JP was involved in the writing process.

It's my favorite song on the album, and it's in my Dream Theater Top 5, which would now go like this...

1. A Change of Seasons
2. Octavarium
3. Learning To Live
4. Breaking All Illusions
5. Scarred

:p :D

John Myung has been my favorite lyricist in Dream Theater since day one ;)

I absolutely love the lyrics on Breaking All Illusions and the positive message they convey. One need not see a shrink when there are lyrics like these. :p

Myung is indeed the best lyricist in DT, I noticed his lyrics has pretty much yielded some of the best DT songs i.e. Learning To Live, Fatal Tragedy. If he wrote more for the next album, oh man..*mind explodes*
