I'm trying to recall when I fully turned against them. Even around 2009 I rated Images & Words and Awake quite highly. Though checking last.fm, my plays fall off hard that year. The only years since 2005 in which I've listened to no Dream Theater at all, though, are 2010 and 2015. The others from 2011 have a once or twice yearly play of bits of I&W and Awake, plus a listen to each of the new albums.

I love the "midlife crisis" thread tag.

I've been listening to rock operas tonight to prepare me for the ASTONISHING. Just finished Tommy, now I'm listening to this little number:

https://rateyourmusic.com/release/al...imon_simopath/

Which I've been assured is one of the founding albums of the genre.

The most genius tag of late has got to be the "von schloopen" one on the personally offended band changes thread.

You have completed me, LeMel. Now when I get into boring discussions about Nirvana, I have some further ammunition to work with.

The Story Of Simon Simopath is the debut album by British psychedelic band Nirvana, released by Island Records in 1967. The lyrics trace the story from life to death of the titular hero via a series of short songs. The story deals with a boy named Simon Simopath who dreams of having wings. He is unpopular at school, and after reaching adulthood (in 1999) goes to work in an office in front of a computer. He suffers a nervous breakdown and is unable to find help in a mental institution, but gets aboard a rocket and meets a centaur who will be his friend and a tiny goddess named Magdalena, who works at Pentecost Hotel. Simon and Magdalena fall in love and get married, followed by a jazzy party.

Kurt's life in sum.

 
It's a very pleasant album but somewhat too soft and twee. I'd rather listen to SF Sorrow or Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake if I were going this route. It is, however, only 25 minutes long and an interesting historical curiosity.

Their jazz cover of Iron Maiden's "Gangland" is actually pretty neat, and shows that they once had feel and groove, even with Rudess in the band.

I've got to wait a bit. I can move it to midnight, so an hour earlier.

Friggin' Liam.

I wonder if we can drag friggin' Cobbler into this.

I better hurry up and make dinner so that I'm not trying to juggle eating, laughing at Petrucci, and accidentally snorting pasta through my nose every time Rudess gets a solo.

Listening to THE ASTONISHING first would be a pretty Cobbler thing to do.

OK Travis, wake up. I'm ready for Dream Theater to wank uncomfortably close to my ears.

let's do this. i'm listening to armin van buuren, so i guess that's a) a hell of a genre jump and b) equally less likely a thing you people would expect me to say.
