Are you looking for challenging music ? - something that shakes you, and grips you, and transports you to places you never dreamed of ?

Well then, stop here for a spell. You'll find an assortment of some of the absolute best progressive artists and groups, from delicate and lyric (e.g. Jeff Buckley), to harsh and battering (e.g. Zero Hour).

These acts I can guarantee for !  Each of them is worth an experience, each is unique, seeking, challenging, and exciting.

I have probably missed some, and therefore I would be happy to receive proposals for further pantheon groups. But they have to be professional, special, suffused with intelligence, passionate, and they have to rock.

Feel free to post anything that comes to your mind, in this thread, or to Nicky007b at

There's more to my listening profile, but due to character limits, I'v had to continue it in my next posts further down. There you'll find lists of fave musicians, a list of classic songs, a list of groups (for me) to check out, and a shopping list (for me too) ;D

- Nicky
So you've come of age
And so you want to meet God
Sure you can
He's right here next to me


Those are all "the greatest".

Have you ever considered listening to some smaller bands?
I think you might like bands like:
- Satellite (Evening Games (brilliant album), melodic keyboard driven neo-prog from Polen)
- Magic Pie (Both albums, I especially love the new album, it's so good! It sounds a bit like Dream Theater at times! Very cool guitarwork, nice riffs. A bit Spock's Beardish too.
- which brings me to this one: I see Spock's Beard is missing in your list. It's also one of those "greatest". And Neal Morse too!
- Overhead you can download their first album from their website. RECOMMENDED TO FLOYD FANS!
- A.C.T, can't recommend them often enough. They're very underrated, they should be amongst "the greatest"
- The Watch, nice Genesis clone! And Neuschwanstein, old Genesis clone.

Apart from the ones I already recommended to you! ;)


Thanks a lot, PH. Got'm noted.

I'm always happy to get tips, particularly from people I share my passions with as closely as I do with you, PH.

Spock's Beard were a hair's breadth from making it into my "sure" list. But I have to listen more to them.

I find Neal Morse great too, but that's more for his courage and lyrics than for his music.

I like A.C.T a lot, and sure, they are underrated, but I wouldn't rate them at the level of Arena or Dream Theater.

The other groups, I don't really know yet, but with your recoms, I'll get their albums, once the finances budge from the absolute zero point.

So you've come of age
And so you want to meet God

He's right here next to me


Yay! Another one that actually likes 6 Degrees from DT!

What's your opinion on Threshold?

Yay! Another one that actually likes 6 Degrees from DT!

You're wrong, Appelmoes, I'm crazy about it. I've been listening to little else this past week (except, of course, Arena). Now I'm getting into Train of Thought, and it also seems to be a killer.

What's your opinion on Threshold?

Critical Mass is my favorite T-album at this point. That's probably because there are a lot of relatively quiet moments on it, and I like Threshold more than thrash-old.

Hey, just realised that Train of Thought gotta be on the "sure" list too.

OK, Octavarium, here I come ....


Hello Nicky, I see that you finally got the quote thing  ;)

Did you check the EP A Change of Seasons ? A real gem too ...

Yeah, Bupie, I did it for your sake ;)  I just haven't figured out how to draw several quotes that way. Doesn't really matter though.

> Did you check the EP A Change of Seasons ? A real gem too ...

I think I'm more for the later DT albums. I'm real hot on Six Degrees and Train, and I think Octavarium will get there too. When I heard Scenes recently, it didn't grip me nearly as much. Something happened to DT between Scenes and Six that I'm real happy about.

This list of classic songs is by no means complete. I'm aware that there are many more great songs and pieces.

Now and then I stop in my tracks when I hear a song of ineffable striking beauty, a song that gets stuck in my mind, and that gets my finger stuck on the repeat button. 

It's interesting to see these songs juxtaposed in time.

The list can also be useful for newbies to a group, as these songs are good starters.

Funny that you mention it!
The first 4 studio albums are different than Scenes indeed, and from Six Degrees up till Octavarium it's also different than both Scenes and the first 4 albums.

Here are some changes that were made during their career:

When Dream And Day Unite Mike Portnoy, John Petrucci, James Myung, Kevin Moore and Charlie Dominici

Images And Words Charlie left (fortunately!) Kevin Moore still plays the keyboards and James LaBrie came in.
Awake No drastic changes since I&W, maybe a bit heavier.

Falling Into Infinity Kevin left and is replaced by (in my opinion) the not really interesting Derek Sherinian. He plays a bit like Kevin though.

Scenes From A Memory Derek left and Jordan came in. Something interesting happened. Jordan gave the boys some inspiration it seems. The keyboards become much more important.

Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence Jordan is at home and feels he can do what he wants to. He doesn't sound restricted anymore (it seems). LaBrie starts to sing better!
Train Of Thought No drastic changes since SDOIT, maybe a bit heavier.
Octavarium No drastic changes since SDOIT, maybe just a bit more symphonic.
Systematic Chaos No drastic changes since SDOIT, but again a bit heavier I guess.


Scenes is a great album, and it has everything that we love about heavy metal: power, pulse, melody, top-notch musicianship, interesting lyrics; it's just not that different from several other albums by other excellent metal groups. Somehow the guys (particularly LaBrie), just didn't yet compose and perform with so much conviction as later.

Six Degrees is an absolute adventure, and we have musicianship with a tremendous conviction, backing up an amazingly vital and nuanced LaBrie.

I beg to differ. SFAM is a concept album and one of the best i might add. It's the follow up, maybe you knew that already but i'll indulge you anyway  ;), to Metropolis pt I on Images And Words. The first intention was to write a song, well epic is a better word, called Metropolis pt II which would have been released on Falling Into Infinity (which would become a double CD). But one of the reasons why that didn't happen was because of the record company. They wanted to see 'Hits'.  ;) That's why they co-writed a song with Desmond Child ( You Not Me). Radio-friendly songs so to say. Kind of hate that point of view from the Record Label 'cos that's why we had to wait a few more years more to finally hear classics as Raise The Knife, a song which was meant to be released on that Double Album.The other reason was that MP and JP weren't convinced about the story of Metropolis pt II so they through everything upon the table and started to rewrite the puzzle. This ended up as Scenes From A Memory. A story about a guy who sees flashbacks of a life he supposed to have led in a former life, only this time as a young girl called Victoria who was in love with the Miracle and The Sleeper.  ;)
And why she was killed by the way. ;)

*And we're so breaking the rules in this sub-forum.
Cause of Injury: Lack of Adhesive Ducks.


I really like this discussion. It shouldn't really matter where it takes place (as long as it's not in a Britney forum), rules don't rule any longer.

It's great being in the company of DT experts, and I'm learning a lot about the group and their music and ideas.

However, there's one thing I'm certain about: Something happened to DT during the making of Six Degrees that raised them to ethereal heights that only Arena have tasted.

Oi! I don't agree on a lot of things :o

Peter can talk to you about rules though.

Here's what I have to say ;)
I don't think DT hit their top on 6 degrees, imo their best effort of songwriting and composing was on SfaM, but that's just an opinion.
And I really think there are more bands of DT-allure then just Arena. To me Ayreon, Threshold, Symphony X, Sonata Arctica and many other bands are of the same status :)
For some good reading visit:""Fluffy Kittens of DOOM"!

Hey Nicky, you're not getting away with it so easy!

My opinion

SfaM was in it's day one of the best albums about and a real cut above the rest of thier output to that point, I can play that album over and over.
Now Six Degrees even better still and definatly thier high point, have to agree there, an utterly majestic album that just sends me off into extacy....not too many full albums do that The only ones I can think off right now would be -

Arena - Contagion & Peppers Ghost
Stranglers - Black & White & Suite XVI
Pink Floyd - DSOTM
Credo - Rhetoric
Threshold - Critical Mass
IQ - Dark Matter & The Seventh House
Pilgrym - Pilgramage
Spock's Beard - Snow
Rush - Moving Pictures
Kino - Picture
Alice in Chains - Jar Of Flies
Iron Maiden - Number Of the Beast
Symphony X - V
Rhapsody - Dawn of Victory
Magazine - Real Life

More than I thought! and for many, varied reasons.

I got a bit exalted there, Appelmoes (I hope you don't think it too intimate that I omit the ??, we know each other quite well now, at least musically). I meant what I wrote, one can hardly exaggerate how good Six Degrees and the following albums by DT are, but of course, I don't want to manipulate: Everyone should find for themselves, which music touches them. As PH said earlier: If you like jazz, then go for it, as long as you f...... turn off that b..... radio. And it of course also depends very much on one's age, which music one goes for. I could be your father, were it not for my good looks (I'm more handsome than your Gelert figure).

Well, I'm not the one who stands beside everyone with a stick in his hand to smack 'em up, right...

The rule of staying on topic in a thread makes sense, though, if you look at the following scenario: a reader (like many) uses the "unread posts since last visit" funtion to see what's new. Now people post about DT in a thread called "Nicky's faves". Maybe a reader is not so interested in "Nicky's faves", so he dismisses the thread, but might be interested in DT nevertheless and then misses the discussion...

Arriving somewhere, but not here....

Hey Nicky, you're not getting away with it so easy!

No, God already told me that, Johninblack.

Checked up your website, saw your photos. You look like some of the guys I drink pints with at the local Diligencen. Maybe you and I can do that one day (after a blowout Arena concert).

I could imagine that Scenes was a bomb when it turned up. (I was into plink-plonk new age music at the time, not enjoying it too much though.)

But as you say, Six Degrees is just simply righton better, let's not mince words. But of course, it's like comparing infinity with more infinity.

Now I'm realising that Train and Octavarium are just as good as Six Degrees, so see you soon at the looney bin. I'll have to leave Systematic Chaos for next life.

I always enjoy reading fave lists by fellow initiates. I noted misses in my collection. How about freshening up your Listening Profile? And keep the groups down to under twenty, else it gets confusing.

Could you tell me (no, us, of course) a bit about Stranglers, Credo, Pilgrym, Rhapsody, and Magazine, as I don't know their music. (I hope that Peter doesn't discover the dissolution of the rules involved here.)

I would say here (seriously for once) that we don't have more talking going on in this forum presently than we can quite easily read the whole caboodle.

Someone who's not interested in my faves can b..... well stay out of my discussion on DT  ;D

OK, logout and do something else now. You guys really know how to take my time  ;D ;D

No problem my friend, however I'll post it in a new post in the 'Off Topic' section. That image of Peter with a big stick is doing strange things to my head!

*pick me!!

OK, Appelmoes, I always knew that you were the moes daring member of this forum.

Yes, you tried to shanghai a lady from the States, and it didn't work out, because she didn't like your stewed apples.

You became Christian because your parents couldn't accept your prog interest, and you had only Christ to turn to.

You turned to Threshold because Arena turned their backs on you, and now that you're exposed, Peter will exclude you from The Shattered Room.
