    Dream theater, alright! They're my favorite hard rock/metal band.
    There albums Images & Words, Awake, Falling Into Infinity, and Scenes From A Memory are all perfect; not a bad moment on them. I'm a pretty harsh critic on music, so that's a big endorsement.
    Here's some songs off the top of my head:
    Pull Me Under
    Metropolis part I
    Home
    Lie
    6:00
    Lifting Shadows Off A Dream
    Change of Seasons (20 minutes)
    Fatal Tragedy
    Take the Time
    Line in the Sand
    Scarred
    This should get you started. Their albums work better when listened to as a whole, especially their last one, Scenes From a Memory, which is a concept album.

    You need to get Scenes from a Memory and listen to it from start to finish. It's WELL worth the cost of a CD.
    A Change of Seasons from the Change of Seasons EP. It's 23 minutes long. I think that it's quite possibly the best song they've done. Somehow DT made 23 minutes seem to short. It's incredible.

    Jim_C,
    The funny thing about Change of Seasons is that it's really just "filler." It was written in the early days of the band and was scrapped. After Awake, the keyboard player left and they realised it would be a long time before the next album was gonna be released. To placate fans, they dug up Change of Seasons and recorded it. Then they tacked on material from a concert they did where they played cover songs.
    It's funny how their "throw-away" material is heads above most other bands' output. I like Seasons, too, but I think they went on to make better stuff.

    That's pretty interesting about it being filler. While I agree that DT has gone on to make amazing music I still hold Change of Seasons as my personal favorite. I've listened to many, many 10+ minute compositions and COS IMO flows so much better than any of the rest. It really impresses me.
    Having said that Home, Silent Man, Scarred, and The Spirit Carries on are probably my favorite tracks in the -10 minute catagory. Okay, so Scarred is 11 minutes [​IMG]
    You just can't go wrong with DT. I can't wait for the new album next spring.
