I like Dream Theater.
I've liked them a lot in the past.
I've cared for them a little less in the more recent pass.
I like them a lot more in the even more recent past, as in the past few weeks and especially days.
My dad and I just got Awake, which no one ever told me was their best album, or at least the best one that'd I'd have heard yet if I were to listen to it. IMO, blows Images away, great as Images is, blows ADToE away, as epic as that is, blows Octavarium away, great as the title track is, and blows 6DoIT away, great as the suite is. Probably blows the Astonishing away too, but I've still only gotten through half of that album.
Awake is my new favorite Dream Theater album, the mini suite with Voices in it might be my new favorite Dream Theater piece, and lastly Space-Dye Vest is so awesome. I should've gotten this thing YEARS ago.
What do folks here think of Awake in comparison to the rest of their discography?
