Even on a modern Prog Metal station, can't forget the roots. Dream Theater is classic.

DT at their best especially Mike Portnoy and Jordan Rudess. Amazing musicians.

This particular track came up on my King Crimson station! And in fact sounds pretty dern Prog coming from a Heavy Metal band. #justsayen. ; )

That piano part isn't for ironic effect, its a part of the songs deeper structure as a part of the Metropolis story. The Dance is a musical representati o n of the turbulence of love, with its constant rhythmic themes and changes. Its truly a masterpiece.

This song is the best instrumental that I personally know of by DT. Just my opinion.

Some of the stuff DT does is amazing, such as this, and then LaBrie goes and ruins everything else.

If you like standard non productive music, don't listen to DT, if you do like out of the ordinary, then you'll love DT, all the members seem to fit like a glove for my ear's, everyone has different intake senses, to music, which usually change through the years. DE

I like DT instrumental s , because LaBrie isn't singing. His voice just bugs me. This piece is great by any standard, though.

6 minutes, over a hundred time changes, enough said

I don't know how you can possibly not like crazy carnival solos in the middle of an epic metal instrumental .

This is simply one of the best songs that Dream Theater has ever made. it isn't particularly long or deep, but just listen to it: It's awesome :D

Incredible tune.

@troyw91 - Perhaps the piano lick midway thru is for ironic effect?

Jordan Rudess almost wrecks Dream Theater for me. He's a talented player, but awful. DT is one of my favorite bands, but since Rudess came on board, it's been getting harder and harder to listen. Awful. I feel like I'm at the circus or a carnival at times when he does his, well, whatever he does. Kevin Moore and Derek Sherinian were good in DT. Get Rudess the heck out that great band. But, they chose him, so they must like his terrible sounds and carnival solos. Bleh.
