Love? Hate? Where to start with them?
can't stand them.
And I used to work with this guy whose entire music taste consisted of Dream Theater and nothing else. It made our social interactions quite awkward. I couldn't tell him....a mistake which culminated in me having to borrow several albums and a DVD, before pretending that they didn't want to make me pour boiling water down my ears.
I had to watch a video of the synth guy doing some awful, cheap sounding synth demo...
Some of their stuff sounds just like the 80s in the way everyone means as detracting...bad lyrics...tasteless choruses...tasteless timbres...
i hate my dad for that.
i remember thinking it looked boring as fuck, prog for the sake of being prog compared to, say, The Mars Volta where the proggy-ness of it is what makes them so exiting and intruiging.
