If the song is just the same riff over and over again, like your average 2 1/2 minute rock song, then yes. But if a song goes into immense detail and intricacy, like Sex Degrees of Inner Turbulence, then it works.

I usually find that if you think a song ended too soon (Ie. A change of seasons) that means that the writer/preformer of the song has stopped it there, to keep the listener caught up in the song, if they didn't stop it at a certain point then the song would just finish. Like at the end of Scenes From A Memory when the singer says "Wake up Nicolas", it just ends and cuts to the record making static noises...
But then again if they kept going it would probably still have been kick ass but without a definite ending.

What do you cats think of 'Score'? Personally I think it kicks donkeys bollox its so good but hey thats me....:P

True. However I think most people would have wanted a 'better' set list. But I ask, what IS better? Everyone has different favourite songs :p I woulda loved to have seen These Walls, Take the Time and Caught in a Web on there at the expense of The Answer Lies Within and I Walk Beside You. However some people aboslutely love those songs.

Moving onto A Change of Seasons... I love the EP, not for the title song, but for the live covers. I find a new degreee of respect for a band when I hear them do classic songs justice. Achilles Last Stand and Perfect Strangers are stuff of legends. They also make Bohemian Rhapsody sound good! I never liked the original :)

Dude, leather pants are awsome.
I admit back in the day Dream Theater did dress kinda gay (just look at the booklet for "Images and Words"), but they've toned down the gayness a lot in the past ten years, and these days just look nothing short of awesome.

Bastards, calling Myung a girl. Fuck them. I liked this comment:
More nuggets of insight from Brett Hinds.
Does he have any other insults in his vocabulary that are unrelated to sexual orientation?
I, as an insult connoseur of sorts, am very underwelmed.
Be a little more original next time, you slack-jawed junkslut!

I was about to try and get into Mastodon, but they say that Dream Theater are gay and call Myung a girl. Well, I won't be trying to get into them now. Fuck them for saying such shit to a great band.

I onthe other hand ignore what musicians have to say about other musicians unless their name is Axl Rose and thus I will continue hating Axl Rose and continue in my quest to get into Mastodon.

I'm usually ok with musicians hating other musicians like the Dave Mustaine and Metallica incident, and there's the DragonForce and Trivium thing, although that was wasn't real, but Mastodon went too far by calling Dream Theater gay and that.

After seeing the Some Kind of Monster documentary I'd say Dave was probably more upset at himself, and jealous (he states if he could go back and change things he would much rather still be a member of Metallica today) than angry at the band itself.

Anyway, to stay on topic... the comments Mastodon made are really just laughable. I've actually seen this with a lot of bands. I just went and saw a local band play and they were bashing a bunch of big bands (Supernova and Metallica to name a few). It's just an ego thing, there really isn't any substance behind it... jealousy in most cases. Honestly, even if you aren't a fan of Dream Theater, there's not many people who could say they don't appreciate how amazing they are as musicians, and if they can, they're probably kidding themselves or know nothing of music. There's no personal bias there.. I swear.. HONEST.

I really wish I could see them in concert. It's funny, when I listen to my iPod, I usually have it on shuffle because I get sick of listening to just one band or similar stuff for too long. Yet, I have no problem going to artists and listening to just Dream Theater songs for hours. Also, Myung is totally a sexy little girl. I mean, what? FUCK.

The only reason I said 5 minutes in is because that is how long it took the Paramedics to fight through the insane crowds.

Ok. How long do you think it will be until Dream Theaters next studio album?

I'm guessing late 2007.

I think somewhere between mid and late 2007. But to be honest, I don't care when their next album is released as long as it's released sometime next year to make the year 2007 more of an interesting year for music. :P

No, it's a DT club in a DT thread in a NG forum.

And its pretty slow moving and inactive if you ask me.

Anyway, in a frail attempt to reinvigorate conversation...

What do you all think to the two new tracks that appeared on Score?

Personally I think Raise the Knife and Another Won are great. Your verdict?
