Top Ten Reasons People Hate Dream TheaterIronSabbathPriest Self explanatory. If you have any more reasons, please add them. I am a major fan of this band, by the way.
The Top Ten
This isn't just exclusive to Dream Theater, it's usually the first thing that people bash Prog for in general. It never really made sense to me because I always thought that artists like Primus, Mr. Bungle, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Buckethead, Coheed And Cambria, Rush, hell, even Tool always came off as pretty self-aware to me. - The_Crimson_King
They're far from pretentious.
They really aren’t though - NightmareCinema
With the very short attention spans of Millennials now, it's no wonder prog in general is shunned.
Oi people with dyspraxia have short attention spans.
You are really a jerk to millennials.
That’s dumb, songs only feel long to me when they’re repetitive - NightmareCinema
He's the best tranny vocalist out there.
No. Just no - NightmareCinema
Well they are still pretty heavy. Prog metal is more instrumental than singing, and most people say metal bands are most known for the vocals. No shock prog metal isn't big among eve prog fans.
That doesn’t matter - NightmareCinema
I miss Portnoy too but give it a rest people...Jesus... - NightmareCinema
Mangini is good, but Portnoy definitely is better. I like Mangini though.
People still go on about this to this day. - IronSabbathPriest
That was one album - NightmareCinema
To be fair he wrote some of their best lyrics. - IronSabbathPriest
People don't like this album. It's pretty cheesey and not that progressive. But I like the tune. - IronSabbathPriest
The main issue I have is the sheer length of it. I'm not one to say no to long songs, but an album that goes for over 2 and a half hours crosses the line slightly. The music itself isn't too bad though - kempokid
Both brilliant songs. I've seen a few people call them out for this but it's not a big deal as Rush are massive anyway, and DT are fans of them. - IronSabbathPriest
Dream Theater is already overshadowed by other rock bands, so whatever prog bands they shadow weren't big to start with.
