Top Ten Reasons People Hate Dream Theater

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

1 People Call Them Pretentious
2 Song Lengths

With the very short attention spans of Millennials now, it's no wonder prog in general is shunned. - naFrovivuS

3 They're Not the Heaviest Band
4 James LaBrie's Vocals
5 Mike Portnoy's Departure

Mangini is good, but Portnoy definitely is better. I like Mangini though. - naFrovivuS

People still go on about this to this day. - IronSabbathPriest

6 The Charlie Dominici Era
7 Kevin Moore's Departure

To be fair he wrote some of their best lyrics. - IronSabbathPriest

8 Their album "The Astonishing"

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

9 The Fact That "The Looking Glass" Sounds Like Rush's Limelight

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

10 The Fact That They Overshadow Other Progressive Acts

Like who? - naFrovivuS

Dream Theater is already overshadowed by other rock bands, so whatever prog bands they shadow weren't big to start with. - naFrovivuS
