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
They're far from pretentious. - naFrovivuS
With the very short attention spans of Millennials now, it's no wonder prog in general is shunned. - naFrovivuS
My brother is 19, 7 years older than me. I sit through Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence without getting bored and enjoying the whole song.
My brother thinks a ten minute song is too long.
Let that sink in. - CostcoHotDogs
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. - naFrovivuS
Mangini is good, but Portnoy definitely is better. I like Mangini though. - naFrovivuS
People still go on about this to this day. - IronSabbathPriest
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
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
