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

The Top Ten

1 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

Pure beauty

2 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.

Best dt chorus of all time

3 Outcry

Within Temptation ripped this songs chorus off. - IronSabbathPriest

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

4 Bridges in the Sky

Best one after On the Backs of Angels, The Chorus is so amazing and beautiful... Not to mention the wonderful playing from every member. - fidelcanojr

awesome

In my opinion, the best song on the album. gives off a "i want to kill people" vibe. great instrumental, great chorus, great beginning.

5 Lost Not Forgotten

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

6 Beneath the Surface

This is seriously the only song I get goosebumps of. Woah

Wonderful and emotional song

7 Build Me Up, Break Me Down

It�'s a song which has the melody, a good lyrics and good instrumental power! Woohoo, I replay it day after day

CRYING CRYING CRYING
SO BEAUTIFUL

I like how they scream BUILD ME UP BREAK ME DOWN! And 7 srriously should be under outcry heck this is my second favorite. Dt album (images and words can't be beat) I'm glad I own this cd its ausome

8 This Is the Life

Why is this so low? This song is filled with emotion and has a great guitar solo. I also would have rather has this as the album closer instead of beneath the surface.

This is a song that on dream theater can make, and its beautiful

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

JP can really make you feel things in this song... Most emotionally gripping DT song since Space-Dye Vest (except maybe the Best of Times) - Songsta41

9 Far from Heaven

Beautiful, its just so emotional and so powerful without heaving heavy powers... you know what it izzz
