Like so many other DT fans... so hard to choose! Either [i]The Glass Prison[/i] or [i]Octavarium[/i]. Sorry I can't be more specific.
1. Another Won (instrumental)
2. Ytse Jam
3. Learning to Live
4. Lifting Shadows Off a Dream
5. A Change of Seasons (Sorry, I had to include it)
6. Trial of Tears
7. Overture 1928
8. The Glass Prison
9. Endless Sacrifice
11. Constant Motion
12. A Nightmare to Remember
13. Raw Dog
14. Breaking All Illusions
Late bloomer, here. Picked up [i]Octavarium[/i] as a what-the-heck purchase (along with the sucky [i]Curb[/i] by Nickelback, but that's another story!) because I was intrigued as to the concept of an album with a 25 minute song on it. I play [i]Curb[/i] that night, feel the urge to vomit after hearing it, swear never to listen to it again... where was I? Oh, yeah. I then put on [i]Octavarium[/i]... within one minute fall hopelessly in love with DT, swear to father children from each and every band member, and since I have no idea how that will be physically possible for a dude to achieve I then compromise by making a vow to amass as much DT stuff as I can. It's been almost six years for me.
Has this gotten weird?
I have a slight respect for Foo Fighters ([i]The Colour and the Shape[/i] and [i]There is Nothing Left to Lose [/i]were terrific albums), though metal they are not. Even though the [i]Learn to Fly [/i]video splits my sides every time, I honestly haven't heard anything fresh from them in years (I even gave more recent FF cds to my dad!).
Don't worry Dream Theater, your time will come, and when it does, oh my...
Thanks for the wizardry, your genius be myriad.
What's the wierd intro/outro on Bridges in the Sky?
