If Only All Of Their Songs Were As Good As This One

Years ago a metal band called Dream Theater hit the scene. Their video for the song 'Pull Me Under' got heavy rotation on Mtv. I've never been a big fan of prog rock or prog metal, so that probably explains why I only like a few Dream Theater songs. 'Pull Me Under' was just this catchy song with an underlying heaviness. When 'Images And Words' was released I was expecting an album full of songs like 'Pull Me Under'. Man, what a letdown it was when all I heard was a bunch of dull ass prog rock/metal. Anyway, I love this song, and there are even some cool memories attached to it for me as well. This was actually pretty light for the stuff I was listening to at the time. It was basically Death Metal or Thrash and nothing else during this time period being spun in my cd player.

Images & Words is a great album.

Awake is a great album.

After that I like some other albums. Scenes From A Memory I like. The last few I really maybe like a song or two on them.

Voices is my favorite song by them. From the Awake album. Pull Me Under vid is how I became aware of the band. I love that song, too.

I bought two of their DVDs Scenes From New York and the live at budycall one.

For a while I would go back and listen to their other stuff trying to catch something impressive, but eventually I just gave up. I do like Pull Me Under though.

This is an amazing album. It is one of my all time favorites. My only real beef with Dream Theater is that I get tired of 20 minute long songs. I prefer the 4 minute range but they are still a great band.

Games I'm Playing:

Halo 3: ODST (Xbox 360)

About Me

My photo
Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States
I'm 38. I'm addicted to Xbox 360 gaming and Dallas Stars hockey. I make a decent living at a boring job where I run two autoclaves and do various other tasks. My escape from this boring as hell life is video games, hockey, and music. I generally listen to Metal music, but I also love 80's tunes as well as 70's tunes. I have an unusual love for the band Overkill. They do it for me for some reason. Blitz is GOD!
