Best Songs From Dream Theater's Octavarium

The Top Ten


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

No song will display the relationship between music, music theory and circle of life, better than this song ever again.

90% of DT fans would say this is their best. Love it

Panic Attack

This should be higher. As a person who occasionally suffers from Panic Attacks, I am amazed at how well this song portrays what goes through my mind. - IronSabbathPriest

My favorite dream theatre song

1. Panic Attack
2. Octavarium
3. The Root of All Evil
4. Sacrificed Sons
5. These Walls
6. The Answer Lies Within
7. I Walk Beside You
8. Never Enough

This song is underrated this should be 1 octavarium is a good song but super overrated this song is better in my comment

The Root of All Evil

I love how there are quiet riffs in this that are also in the title track.
I think that’s really cool

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

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.

Catchy song also one of petruccis finest riffs and solos

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

Yeah I agree with you man... Sorry but I can't vote for this one.

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.

A good song, but it's too Muse inspired. Even though the song does have a good message. - IronSabbathPriest

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

A catchy song!

The Answer Lies Within

Very beautiful give it credit
