Favourite album is Train Of Thought, with Images And Words and Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence making my top 3. After that a lot of them rank pretty close together and if I tried to order them I'd be putting some above others pretty much on a whim.

Favourite song is A Change Of Seasons followed by In The Name Of God. Hard to go any further without being tempted to list the 25 or so Dream Theater songs I consider among their best that are absolutely amazing, so I'll just leave it at that.

Scenes from a Memory was always my favorite of their records. Sometimes it can be tedious to sit through a concept record that long though.

My favorite DT song ever has always been Learning To Live. I think it really showcases everything they can do. And this is when pre-illness Labrie was on top of the world and in my opinion the best singer on the planet.

^That might be my favorite too. It's really difficult to choose only one. If I had to choose an album it would probably be "Awake".

Such a great band, like their post-2000 work most (probably one of the few with that)
Saw them in Januari as well they were simply amazing live, Labrie isn't what he used to be though i guess but still good

Favorite album goes back and forth from I&W to SDOIT, but I haven't really listened to DT in a while. Hopefully when I listen again it'll all sound fresh!

Panic Attack along with As I Am are the first DT songs I heard, apart from Pull Me Under on Guitar Hero. I don't count them among my favourites now since there are so many DT songs even better than them, but hearing Panic Attack, As I Am and a handful of other songs are what got me to listen to DT.

I play guitar but in Rock Band I play drums and Pull Me Under to me is a lot more fun to play. It's great that they have a few songs in the game. Portnoy stated a while back that they were working on making their entire catalog available in RB. That's be immense.

Well yeah of course but it was about two years ago so maybe it was in the works. It would be awesome to get more songs from them.

Speaking of... I don't even miss MP being in Dream Theater anymore. 1. The guy handled the split horribly & 2. Mangini puts him to shame.

I love some of DT stuff, because I don't have enough time and willingness to listen to the rest of the songs like Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence (42 minutes long) :D
I really dig enitre Systematic Chaos, as well as single songs from other albums (As I Am, Spirit Carries On, Wither, Pull Me Under, Another Day, Lie, You Not Me, On The Backs of Angels, Build Me Up Break Me Down etc.)
