Best Songs On Dream Theater's A Dramatic Turn of Events

The Top Ten

1 Breaking All Illusions Breaking All Illusions

Balances contributions most evenly between all the members in addition to just being awesome. Great opening riff and fantastic development.

This song is the most melodic and progressive. I love the breaking part when rudess play the keyboard. And the 9' part is the best

Best John Petrucci solo. Only the Best of Times can even come close. - IronSabbathPriest

2 On the Backs of Angels On the Backs of Angels

The riffs and chorus rocks Jordan also did amazing at pianos

Petrucci intro is amazing and Rudess choirs in this entire album is beyond awesome!

I really like this song but it should stand a little lower.

3 Outcry Outcry

Outcry is my second favorite ADTOE song, after Breaking All Illusions. One thing I love about it is how it tells a story, and builds it up with seriously EPIC results. Very catchy chorus, great solos. - Operation_Fortitude

I REALLY REALLY like the lyrics. It's so inspirational, well written. Instrumentmal... WOAAAHww

5 Lost Not Forgotten Lost Not Forgotten

I remember attempting to make a video for this song for a competition. The best video made would be shown behind the band when they play the song live. I didn't win but I was 11 at the time so my video making skills were pretty sub-par. - IronSabbathPriest

Underrated I must say. It's really awesome and well written, too. This song gripped me quickly and didn't let go - Songsta41

It�'s a vocally strong song, but the instruments are also to die for.
