Metropolis is my pick.
I like Images and Awakes quite a bit.
IMO apart from a couple of strong songs they went downhill after the 90's.

A great prog metal disc at time when it was sorely needed.

The ones I enjoy the most are:

Black Clouds And Silver Linings
A Dramatic Turn Of Events
Dream Theater
Octavarium
Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence
Falling Into Infinity
Train Of Thought

I can be really harsh on this band, but I do find these albums the most enjoyable.

Scenes isn't all its cracked up to be, in all honesty. Neither is Images And Words. Awake is better.

Falling into Infinity.  Love Peruvian Skies, the dUg Pinnick track Lines in the Sand, Hollow years, etc.  More of a "mainstream" album, but it's great.

I noticed that "When Dream and Day Unite" wasn't among the choices, but that's fine.  I voted "A Change of Seasons" because the title track is so strong in every way.

If it wasn't for Mike's snare on "Images" it would have been 5 stars.

Sorry Mike.  One star deduction for a shit sounding snare.

They're pretty close, but Awake revitalized DT in my mind after seeing all their detractors around here left a bad taste in my mouth for them. Images will always be up there for me with Under A Glass Moon though.

Yep!

That's why I quoted you.  I love both albums almost the same.  "6:00" kicks my ass on the drums.  Brilliant.

6:00 is awesome, and yeah, I bet those drums are tough to nail. What hooked me was Voices though. Here I thought I'd heard about all of the best DT songs already from reading stuff on the internet, and then this thing jumps out of the speakers. What a magnificent piece!
