Best Songs From Dream Theater's Octavarium

The Top Ten

1 Octavarium

I'm pretty damn sure everyone expected this to be 1.

This used to be my favourite song of all time (I've started to like A Change of Seasons a bit more). But this is a close second. If I really wanted to be an ass, I'd say they're tied. - IronSabbathPriest

Octavarium used to be my number one Dream Theater song. Then I started to like Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence more. Then I started to like The Count Of Tuscany more. Octavarium is a close third. - CostcoHotDogs

Literally every remix of this list has Octavarium at number one. The best Dream Theater song. The Count Of Tuscany runs a close third; A Change Of Seasons comes second. - CostcoHotDogs

3 The Root of All Evil

Good song one of my favorite serenity songs next to this dying soul but this song is just ausome I think its better than octavarium but these walls is just bad ass

4 These Walls

Best song after Octavarium. The chorus is awesome and the moment where the band kicks in after the guitar (although it sounds like bass) riff is EPIC. - fidelcanojr

After Octavarium, this one is best. I love the lyrics and the melody. - Beatlesboy9

Switch this and The Root of All Evil and I'll shut up. - AdamDestructorJr.

One of the greatest songs made ever.. EPIC
and Portnoy just goes crazy on drums.
Grand music. just love it.. should be higher on the list..

5 Sacrificed Sons

7th position for this meaningful epic song? Yeah, Octavarium comes first, but this should be higher on the list...

It's obvious Octavarium comes first, but Sacrificed Sons is also amazing, having one of my favorite instrumentals the band has ever done

My personal favorite song from this album. I am pretty sure its about 9/11

Better than these walls

6 I Walk Beside You

I think this should be higher than Never Enough because that song sounds a lot like Muse to the point where it basically rips-off Stockholm Syndrome. It's still good, but this is better in my opinion

How is this under the answer lies within us this song is relaxing the answer lies within sucks

7 Never Enough

So I'm not the only person who realizes this sounds just like a Muse song! I thought I was the only one (but that's kinda stupid) - Songsta41

The intro is really the only part I like about this song. At about 30 seconds it gets pretty bad. (as bad as dream theater can get)

Its just one of those songs that you don't know if you like it or not because there are some good parts and bad parts.

And muse influence is bad?
