    I'm going to see them in march! :bassist:

    I'll watch it when I have time.
  4. Yeah I've seen this in the LAB dvd.
  5. I prefer their "Big Medley" (with Pink Floyd's In The Flesh, Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, Carry On, Wayward Son by Kansas I think, and a bunch more).

    You're ignorant.

    ME TOO BABY! March 19th in Cleveland!

    I recently learned that all the way through, which i'm pretty proud of. That whole song is just a shredfest!

    Quite possibly the band I dislike the most. No feeling coupled with no stage presence, yah. I'd rather just listen to the bands that they ripoff.

    I much prefered the Liquid Tension Experiment parts of the instrumedly, but then I much prefer LTE anyway.
  9. I thought it was great, it is meant to be taken as a shedfest since it was a collage of tricky instrumental parts. I don't think the band would ever write a song like this, it is over the top because that's the point of the intrumedley.

    I'm tired of people saying they're wankers, if those people actually listened to DT, they'd realized that Pettruci is one of the most emotionnal soloist in a rockmetal band.

    And Myung? He plays for the song, there's no argument against it. Finally, you've got to realize that it's kinda hard to jump around when you're playing this sort of technical metal, i know DEP does it, but not everyone can.

    I could see where you were coming from until you said the bit about Petrucci being emotional. I never associated sweep appreggio shredding with emotion, but whatever.

  12. I actually enjoy their last two albums. The rest is a large Kansas-Yes-Megadeth-(dare I say) Styx mash up.

    Check yourself fool, lest you forget Frank Zappa, Mahavishnu Orchestra, ELP, and many others. It's actually easier to pick out bands that they ripoff rather than finding examples of "their" sound.

    That was great, thanks for sharing.

  15. Yeah, but those you mentioned are leagues beyond DT. They could never match em.
  16. But I'm right! I like a lot of prog. I just think this band is awful. It sounds like notes were programmed into a computer and spit back out. I just wish they would chill out a little. At least we didn't have to hear LaBrie on that video.

    Shred = Wank... crhoton's comment seemed really accurate to me, maybe not called for in a Dream Theater thread... but calling someone ignorant for not liking your shread (aka wank) rock is rather ignorant.

    You've obviously listened to very little of Petrucci's work.

    Seriously, these arguments get a bit tiresome after a while. So what if they don't jump around like an inebriated chimpanzee at showtime - the stuff they play requires a lot of dedication and concentration to get through on stage. They write extended intrumental passages and fast solos because *gasp, shock, horror* it's how they like to express themselves musically.

    It's great that you don't like DT, but please don't do so for the wrong reasons.

    Yeah, you guys really gotta listen to some more stuff. The work that Petrucci does in "Metropolis Part I" when he harmonizes the 9 chords is just beautiful.
