Typically, Opie describes music in two ways: it either "rocks" or it "sucks." For him to come out and say something different is an achievement in itself.

Dream Theater is boring. I'm not sure if those were Opie's words, but they're certainly mine.

Kamelot FTW.

I'm really open to all rock music. I give every band multiple chances. I've gave 3 chances to Dragonforce and now im kinda liking it. It took two times for me to like King Diamond and now im a huge fan. Same with Helloween. Ive tried to listen to Dream Theatre about five times now...I don't get it.

dream theater is one of htose bands that they try to showcase their talent in every song and overdo it... you can listen to a few songs and then move on. but petrucci is a motherfucker of a guitarist, same with portnoy & drums.

Remember, take whatever Opie or Ronnie says about music, lock it in a box, and ignore it. They both have the taste of water.

I like DT, but only in small doses. even for a musician, DT makes you think too much.

I'll agree with the Opie part of that, but from what I've heard, Ronnie has great taste in music.

Opie is a metrosexual fella what do you expect? Anyone who would be psyched to see Seal in concert should not be trusted when it comes to what "rocks."

Dream Theater never had a top 20 hit, therefore Opie doesn't consider them real musicians.

Yeah, Myung is funny like that. Yeah, I'd like to see pics of that. I have a JP Music Man. It's the old model though.

I agree I like watching John Petrucci play but the singer stinks on ice.
I also agree that Dragonforce took me a couple times, but I enjoy the Nintendo pop they play.

you should check out liquid tension experiment then, if you don't know about them already. it's essentially dream theater with no vocals, and tony levin on the chapman stick instead of myung on bass.
great shit.

All the Dream Theater haters need to watch their Radio City Music 2006 concert dvd "SCORE".

It's an incredible performance celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band.

They really are some of the most talented musicians on the planet.

Personally I think they're one of those bands that you either love them or ya hate them.

Why does the singer stink?
