Do you find Fall Out Boy exciting?
Wow, I've never actually seen a serious Dream Theater defense before...

This should be interesting!

And I've never listened to Fall Out Boy, actually. Care to suggest a good album?
**** you is all I have to say.
Musical Masturbation? Who the **** are you to say someone's music is "soulless"?

And as far Fall Out Boy, **** them too, it was a joke, recommending a good Fall Out Boy album is impossible.

I like some Fall Out Boy.

Listening to Dream Theater feels like doing my math homework...

I love that feeling. Listening to Don Caballero or Zs or any minimalist works by Steve Reich always stirs up that wondrous feeling.

That whole 'soulless' wankery argument is bothersome in itself. Technical prowess is a good thing in music, you know, if you can use it...

Now that said Dream Theater have terrible terrible TERRIBLE production, so sparkly clean and polished; it sounds cheesy and ultimately very bothersome to a listener who doesn't want to hear a band who deny the existence of a bassist, have an overly compressed sound, etc... . Live, they're passable; their music is nothing special, but their actual recordings are overly bothersome.

Also, they rip so many prog artists off all of the time that they're not even original. Petrucci often boasts how many scales he knows; yet he still restricts himself to stealing riffs from King Crimson, Yes, and even Pink Floyd...
