Dream Theater songs can turn into such douchey "oh look how well we play instruments" songs sometimes but I still love em

Petrucci and Myung are damned geniuses

I think the addition of Jordan Rudess on keyboards changed the pace of their songs.

With Kevin Moore on keyboard for Images and Words and Awake, they never had those "look at how big our instrumental balls are" moments.

Agreed

Jordan Rudess is a hell of a musician but my god so many of his solos and fills are just flat out technical ****ery for the sake of it

Rudess and Portnoy are so good at their instruments (though I think Portnoy isn't in Dream Theater anymore?) that I can deal with the pretentious technical ****ery when my mind is being shattered.

Though Moore's Space-Dye Vest is by far my favorite song.

Yes, Portnoy is out. Mike Mangini replaced him.

Space Dye Vest is a good one. One of my favorites is Lifting Shadows Off A Dream. Really puts you in the music.

Glad I caught DT during Prog Nation 09 while Portnoy was still with them

Also got to see Zappa Plays Zappa who were just fantastic

Respect for the guys in Dream Theater's ability... but their music is the definition of pretentious and, despite that, the songwriting is pretty bad.

Agree about the pretentious (mostly Rudess and Portnoy's faults) disagree with the bad songwriting. Naturally, every good band is bound to have stinkers

If I wasn't boycotting concerts and was as into metal as I was 6 months ago I'd like to catch them with Mangini who I definitely feel is a better drummer than Portnoy

I don't know. I've never once listened to them and thought "man, what a great track!" The same is nearly true for me with Rush, except there are a couple of decent songs they've put out.

There's a reason why Exodus was never in "The Big 4"... and was really #6 in that group behind Testament.

Under-appreciated, same with Testament. Always thought those two can slot in over Anthrax.



Always thought this was one of their best. Just comes together great

Exodus is the only one out of those 6 I've never seen

I saw The Big 4 show at Yankee Stadium and I saw Anthrax and Testament in NJ

Such great times

Testament is an awesome show the 4 times I've seen them. Chuck Billy is legit. Testament Megadeth and Slayer was the GOAT show I ever saw.
