This list shows the best songs of the gods of Prog Metal.

The Contenders: Page 5

81 A New Beginning

One of the, if not the best song on the new album. Wish they could've had more lyrics in it and made it around 10 minutes or longer but it's a blast to listen to

I do agree, probably one of the best songs in the new double LP

Fresh, Progressive, Insane and beauty at the same time

82 Take Away My Pain

This song tops the list... Do you ever know how much this song means to Petrucci? And how great and meaningful this song is?... Whosoever made this list belongs to deaf and dumb community!

My Goodness, this one at 67? I was practically searching for this song in the list and was astonished. Sure to make close to top ten of this list

Am I blind or is this masterpiece really missing this list?!

83 Lines in the Sand

This song kind of passed by me when listening to Falling into Infinity for the first time, but then, the 1st time I see DT live they play it and wow, I was so blown away by the epic keyboard intro and the build up to which isn't the most technical solo ever, but Petrucci's most 'hit the nail with every single damn note' solo of 'em all. Labrie at the best I've heard him as well. Everlasting goosebumps throughout the whole song. Come on who's with me? You know what I'm talking about.

This is a spectacular song and the highlight of Falling Into Infinity. Dug Pinnick's guest vocals bring some soul which Dream Theater songs usually lack.

?... Why is this song not even listed?
It's a classic... Best song my far on the FII album. The musical interlude soars in this song... Send a chill up your spine? It's my favorite DT song along with Octavarium. I just can't believe how many dodgy songs are in the top 80... But this isn't listed!

84 The Gift of Music

Amazing single, has that Rush sound in Chorus and Verse. Amazing guitar solo, and crazy breakdown.

THEY ARE BACK! Spread the word!

YESS! they finally have a new album out! can't wait to listen!

85 Along for the Ride
86 Our New World

The Astonishing really needs more love. And this is easily the best song on the album.

Simply beautiful!

87 The Silent Man

Great atmosphere and pretty simple structure. The chorus melody is just epic, also thinking of the Erotomania solo. Should be way up to the top.

This is top 20 material

88 Raw Dog
89 Afterlife

Best song from "When Dream & Day Unite" - TrappedInsideIt

Just started listening to this album and I'm still not sure why it's rated so low; With songs Afterlife, Ytse jam, and killing hand, it is in my top 5 DT albums for sure.

90 Power Down

I don't understand how Power Down is rated as 87th, it holds one of the deepest meanings to any song I've ever listened to. And I have listened to a total of 6 songs in my lifetime.

Power Down is personally my favorite song off of the new album. The weirdness of it plays to it's favor, and what it represents in the story is amazing. When the robot guys die it is the best part of the album. The bodacious shredding by Jordan Ruddess will bring any man to tears. Amazing song!

91 Anna Lee

Beautiful catchy sing along ballad with a guitar solo that captures the beauty of a sun setting on a Sandy Beach. It beautifully pictures it's place on the album, the second to last song on an album that pictures 2 people on the ocean.

It's beautiful and sad and gentle. I love their ballads. This is one of my favourite songs of theirs'.

The highlight of Derek Sherinian's life.

92 Begin Again
93 A Mind Beside Itself
94 Acid Rain

For the all fans of Dream Theatre band, please listen this song..! It will make you look like so handsome!

95 This is the Life

I don't know why this song is so low on the list. For me this is the best song from latest album. So emotional, amazing solos, great lyrics.

Beautiful song, amazing lyricism and musicianship, off the newest album but deserves a much higher place

Life begins with an empty slate
Fragile left in the hands of fate
Driven by love and crushed by hate
Until the day
The gift is gone
And shadows remain

Not more to say!

96 Repentance

This makes me cry that it's at #99... A phenomenal solo, and the voice samples are very touching. It may be radically different from any other song in the 12-step suite, but that's not a bad thing at all. It's a great piece of music, as is pretty much any Dream Theater song.

Just an outstanding solo.. and the voice samples that lead into it, are climactically emotional.

97 Act of Faythe

Most beautiful song from their new album

98 Astonishing
99 Take Your Fingers from My Hair

This song is just fantastic. It's such a disappointment it's way down here on the list. More people need to hear this song.

Definitely deserves top 10 at least
