    Have to agree with LG. Also came late to the DT party, but man I have had fun catching up. Their musicianship is just amazing:D

    I love Dream Theater as a whole but after "A Dramatic Turn Of Events" I've not been keeping up with them. That album felt very recycled and I still haven't even checked out their newest one.

    Hate to admit it, but I think you're right. New drummer Mike Mangini is excellent, but a piece of Dream Theater died when Mike Portnoy left.
    The last two albums are all good/very good but lack the innovation that I've come to expect from them.
    That said. I'd still go and see them any day, and I'll probably continue buying their albums in the forseeable future.

    Well Mike Portnoy was at least some part of the songwriting, lyrics, and the production so he was definitely more than just a drummer. Their new drummer is very capable for the role of drummer but those other factors are missing and it just doesn't have the freshness or excitement that I used to find in their albums. :confused:

    Can't understand why DT isn't in the metal section. Progressive yes but not progressive rock. They are metal.
