Yeah, I'd post in this thread more if I could think of anything to post.
Anyway, when Octavarium came out last year, I Immediately bought it. Personally, I think it's a bit plain, that is, of course, by Dream Theater standards. If any other band had released it, it would be a great achievment, but for Dream Theater, it seemed fairly ordinary. It wasn't until the other day when I found this site (http://dt.spatang.com/octavarium.php) that I began to apreciate it a little more.
I still stand by my stance that it's not the best Dream Theater album, but the complexity of the subtle, and almost hidden, details is impressive.
