Default Dream Theater Vs Pink Floyd

Alright so I've done my research and what we have here is what I believe to be the most popular progressive metal band versus the most popular progressive rock band.
Musically, DT owns PF no questions, but what about everything else? Instead of putting a category on this I'll just pose the question: Which band do you prefer? Also put your age along side your post if you want, purely for my interest.

Definitely prefer Pink Floyd. I guess for reasons such as songwriting, lyrics & concepts, style etc... But undoubtedly Dream Theater is technically superior to Pink Floyd. I'm 17 btw.

Wow, I don't think many your age would prefer PF over DT. I agree PF are superior in the lyrics department. DT's songs are just so addictive and I don't like how PF create mostly ominous and eerie moods throughout some of their albums.

Haha me and Don have already had a similar discussion on this. I prefer Pink Floyd and it's because they intrigue me far more in their concepts and music then DT do. In my opinion, with DT you get flat out Prog Metal and they're not, to me, half as enchanting as Pink Floyd.

I'd have to say DT are a band of champions, while PF are a champion band. I'm 18. Pink Floyd.

How'd I end up here to begin with? I don't know.
Why do I start what I can't finish?
Oh please, don't barrage me with questions to all those ugly answers.
My ego's like my stomach- it keeps shitting what I feed it.
But maybe I don't want to finish anything anymore..
maybe I can wait in bed 'til she comes home. and whispers....

Definitely Dream Theater for me. Pink Floyd are good but in my opinion no where near as amazing as DT. I'm 17.

Hmm the pioneers of psychadelia AND stadium rock vs a bunch of humourless musos who are more interested in wanking over their instruments than writing anything compelling.

Tough choice

Edit: would someone please explain to me why Dream Theater are considered 'progressive'
I thought overlong guitar solos & high pitched vocals went out in the 80s.Doesn`t progressive mean progressing in your music rather than sounding like a relic from 20 years ago.

I don't really care if a band is full of virtuosos when making their music, I just care if it sounds good. That being said Pink Floyd make some great thematically cohesive albums that never fail to inspire emotion in me.
I was waiting on a moment, but the moment never came.

I personally love Pink Floyd... and i think Dream theater are alright.

but i voted for Pink Floyd becasue there lyircs and the way each album sounds and just hits me and i dunno it just gets me thinkign i get in this comfortable zone sometimes get's me in a uncomfortable zone into a place where unless listening to music like Floyds i wouldn't other wise think about which is a good thing...

and with Dream Theater i don't get that same feeling..

both bands are amazing, and have different sounds... but theres just something more about Pink Floyd..
