3 The Best of Times

13 MIN. LONG I love this song. It has a great solo at the end. This is the 2nd best song in my opinion the count of tuscany is the best but this song is a sad song because its talking about mike portnoys parent that died In loving memory of howard portnoy I think its mikes father but this song is sad and also has good music I hope this goes to 2

4 The Shattered Fortress

This song is a sequel to the root of all evil, because you hear the refrain to the root of all evil in this song a couple of times

The ending of the Twelve-step suite, just a masterpiece, should be at least 4!

What? This list is upside down.

And don't forget about the glass prison in the end.

5 Wither
6 A Rite of Passage

Personally my favorite song on the album. So good because it is not as long as the others. 8 minutes is still a kind of long song. Also not to mention it's a lyrical work of art!

The keyboard solo makes me laugh every time! Especially the part that sounds like a kazoo!

Why is this last its just as good as the others

Should be higher than wither.
