Most Underrated Dream Theater Songs

Most underrated songs by the progressive metal band Dream Theater.

The Top Ten

1 Build Me Up, Break Me Down V 1 Comment
2 The Ones Who Help to Set the Sun
3 Honor Thy Father
4 Misunderstood

Sort of gets lost in the masterpiece album SDOIT, but if you listen to it alone you'll understand that this is a brilliant and perfectly executed song. It's one of those that just takes time to get into. - Songsta41

5 Repentance
6 The Root of All Evil

Definitely not by me, I've definitely heard this more than any other Dream Theater song - Songsta41

Their best song actually.. Pure awesomeness! - nooreldeen

9 Another Day

My personal favorite on Images and Words - Frantic713

10 Innocence Faded

The Contenders

11 The Bigger Picture
12 Wither
13 A Nightmare to Remember

I think 21 is just a tad low for what this song deserves, but not enough to really call it underrated. - Songsta41

14 New Millennium
15 On the Backs of Angels

Now, Jordan Rudess show you all of his skill. And all of his skill is combined to this song. Simply awesome - razors15

16 Surrender to Reason
17 Forsaken

My vote made Forsaken jump from 14 to 7, in the Top 10 where it belongs! This whole album is underrated because everyone questions the short songs (despite ITPOE being they're 2nd longest to date) and the more metal over prog feel. But realistically, the album is phenomenal, much better than the simple, radio friendly sounds of an album like Falling into Infinity.

18 Lifting Shadows Off a Dream
19 The Shattered Fortress
20 The Count of Tuscany

I love this 20 min. Song first ausome then heavy then finally peacefully
