This song kind of passed by me when listening to Falling into Infinity for the first time, but then, the 1st time I see DT live they play it and wow, I was so blown away by the epic keyboard intro and the build up to which isn't the most technical solo ever, but Petrucci's most 'hit the nail with every single damn note' solo of 'em all. Labrie at the best I've heard him as well. Everlasting goosebumps throughout the whole song. Come on who's with me? You know what I'm talking about.

This is a spectacular song and the highlight of Falling Into Infinity. Dug Pinnick's guest vocals bring some soul which Dream Theater songs usually lack.

?... Why is this song not even listed?
It's a classic... Best song my far on the FII album. The musical interlude soars in this song... Send a chill up your spine? It's my favorite DT song along with Octavarium. I just can't believe how many dodgy songs are in the top 80... But this isn't listed!

82 The Gift of Music

Amazing single, has that Rush sound in Chorus and Verse. Amazing guitar solo, and crazy breakdown.

The best track on the album it is on. - Powerfultekin

87 Power Down Power Down

Power Down is personally my favorite song off of the new album. The weirdness of it plays to it's favor, and what it represents in the story is amazing. When the robot guys die it is the best part of the album. The bodacious shredding by Jordan Ruddess will bring any man to tears. Amazing song!

88 Afterlife Afterlife

Best song from "When Dream & Day Unite" - TrappedInsideIt

Just started listening to this album and I'm still not sure why it's rated so low; With songs Afterlife, Ytse jam, and killing hand, it is in my top 5 DT albums for sure.

89 The Silent Man

Great atmosphere and pretty simple structure. The chorus melody is just epic, also thinking of the Erotomania solo. Should be way up to the top.

90 Anna Lee Anna Lee

It's beautiful and sad and gentle. I love their ballads. This is one of my favourite songs of theirs'.

91 Acid Rain Acid Rain

For the all fans of Dream Theatre band, please listen this song..! It will make you look like so handsome!

92 This Is the Life This Is the Life

I don't know why this song is so low on the list. For me this is the best song from latest album. So emotional, amazing solos, great lyrics.

Beautiful song, amazing lyricism and musicianship, off the newest album but deserves a much higher place

Life begins with an empty slate
Fragile left in the hands of fate
Driven by love and crushed by hate
Until the day
The gift is gone
And shadows remain

Not more to say!

93 Act of Faythe Act of Faythe

Most beautiful song from their new album

94 Begin Again Begin Again
95 Astonishing Astonishing
96 Repentance Repentance

This makes me cry that it's at #99... A phenomenal solo, and the voice samples are very touching. It may be radically different from any other song in the 12-step suite, but that's not a bad thing at all. It's a great piece of music, as is pretty much any Dream Theater song.

Just an outstanding solo.. and the voice samples that lead into it, are climactically emotional.

97 A Mind Beside Itself
98 False Awakening Suite False Awakening Suite
99 A Fortune in Lies A Fortune in Lies
100 The Big Medley The Big Medley

Wow I'm sad that I had to put this on the list myself but it's so cool how they combine all of these classic rock songs but all polished up with their own twist on them. This definitely shouldn't be #101
