Default Dream Theater--Greatest Metal Band of this Era

If you have not heard of this band yet, then you are not enlightened on what band is the greatest at what they do... I pray that people can listen to these guys and realize the shear talent and prowess. I worship these men, if you like music, then you must like this band.

There is something to be said for passion over scales. You can't have one and not the other.

Dream Theater is all math and no heart. While they are great musicians, their just out there progressing music as a science and not as an art. If you don't do both, you'll never be the greatest band ever.

Also, there has been a rash of newbies (sub 5 post count) that have been dropping in just to push an ageda, we must be advertising somewhere.

I don`t hear anything progressive about Dream Theatre.

Maybe 20 or 30 years ago they might have been , but music has moved on since then.

All I hear when I hear that band (Which is as least often as possible) is a guitarist who loves himself too much , a vocalist who wishes it was still the 80s & some of the most po faced ,cliche ridden lyrics i`ve ever heard

Well, I respect your opinion, and if you can tell me a band to top these guys, please inform me, because as of late, I haven't heard anything that stands up to these guys.

That would be much appreciated.

Rush, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Primus, Lingo, Old QOTSA, Pixies, Zappa, Mars Volta, Im sure the Police could wipe the fllor with them, Liquid Tension Experiment, Pink Floyd could probably out play them, Oysterhead, any of those im thinking has both more techinical skill and can out play them any night of the week. Not to mention that they have more empassioned lyrics and play style than the play by the number crap of Dream Theater.
