Best Dream Theater Songs Longer Than 10 Minutes

What is your favourite Dream Theater song with a duration of longer than 10 minutes?

The Top TenXW


Wow this list was almost perfect, apart from honor thy father and bridges in the sky. Good songs but if it were my way they would be replaced with In The Name of God and Learning To Live. That being said Octavarium wins for me as out of all the epics this is the one that makes me feel the most emotion.

Amazing, not to mention it's my favorite song of all time

2A Change of Seasons

Almost every song is great but A Cgange of Seasons is perfect for me - tomislav95

This song has everything, amazing vocals and no weak sections

ACOS is the most perfect song of the world. Really. If you don't believe me: Listen to it then

3The Count of Tuscany

This ones is right up there With Octavarium for me - Beatlesboy9


My top 5 dt songs over 10 min.

5 in the name of god
4 endless sacrifice
3 sacrificed sons
2 the ministry of lost souls
1 the count of tuscany

4The Glass Prison

Such an awesome song! guitar is amazing and so is the story! - dragon13304

5Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence

the definition of variety! this song is like a whole album packed into one song. awesome.

This isn't a song. It's a concept album of 8 songs. Stop voting for this.

6Honor Thy Father

Don't cross the crooked step...

I love this song, best song in train of thought and best 10 minute+ dream theater song after octavarium - fidelcanojr

?Learning to Live
?Illumination Theory

19 minutes of epic- and progressiveness, and the remaining 3 are just plain beauty. Mike Mangini does a great job and the string section is so touching. This is just the best song ever made!

This is better than that overrated Octavarium. It's not as good as a Change of Seasons though.
