Hello Class! How are all of you?

Today's assignment is for you to write your thoughts on Dream Theater and their work in the form of a fifty words or more post. Do you like them or do you dislike them? Why? Do you have a favorite album, or are they too loathsome to choose? Have fun!

Shit band

Dream Theater is one of those bands that has gained popularity because of their technical ability over whether they can write a good song. They are perfectly capable of writing good music, like they have done in the past (Images & Words, Awake, Metropolis 2, etc.), yet they choose to make some of the most trite, soulless music released to the public. They also kicked Portney out which is gay as fuck. The best thing they’ve done recently is the trailer for The Astonishing and that’s only because it’s so shit it’s humorous. Kind of like how a retard falls down the stairs.

Very well done. I do not approve of homophobic language, but I won't let my opinions get in the way of your grade.

B+

Lacks substance, and fell short of the word goal.

Holy fuck this is great. My roommate is a complete DT fanboy and is convinced all their shit is 10/10. I hope the whole concert is filled with shitty cardboard cut out animation like this

Do you give your roommate wedgies daily.

I would.

They are everything wrong with modern progressive music, their early albums were decent, but now they are so cheesy and lack self-awareness so they became a laughing stock
>>
While prog is a very self-serving genre and being self-serving isn't inherently bad, Dream Theater represent the worst of a genre already filled with self-indulgent expressionism. Dream Theater are not as fun as Gentle Giant or Genesis, are not as good songwriters as Pink Floyd or Porcupine Tree, nor as adventurous as Can or King Crimson. The only thing this prog band really has going for them is their technical exhibitionism and histrionics. However, much like Rush, this is merely a front to hide just how ordinary and uninspired their music is much. While the members of Dream Theater are more than capable of playing, the ability to play something worthwhile is a trait that is lost on the group. And it is this that makes Dream Theater experienced, yet so amateur

Exceeding work. A-

>>61870908
They are talented musicians and contrary to popular belief they are good at writing music.

What they are not good at is writing lyrics or being original. They also have a fairly annoying sounding vocalist.

>They also kicked Portney out which is gay as fuck.
He left the band.

fuck off

I like Dream Theater, though I find that every album of theirs is a mix between very good and totally boring, so without fail I only like a third or half of the album and never give the other songs a try after the initial play or two. I think they make too many songs "long for the sake of being long". Albums like Awake are total shit in my opinion, with the exception of Erotomania. I'm not sure if The Astonishing is going to be good, but The Gift of Music was alright.

Well rounded write-up. B

Why can't Teacher into English?

I have never listened to any Dream Theater songs. The closet I've got to listening to one is a tutorial-ish video by John Myung because I'm a beginning bassist.
They are playing here in my city in May. Should I go and see them?
>>
>>61873425
The Answer Lies Within XD - go see them, it'd be fun

you're a good teacher

Dream theater makes nice music, but used to make better music in the past. The main reason for that is the departure of Kevin Moore. Their post KM stuff is still fun to listen to though.

Years ago my friends made a song about what went wrong with Dream Theater
