I am trying to give these dudes a listen, but have no idea where to start with their massive catalogs. With Dream Theater, I really like the Black Clouds and Silver Linings album, but my buddy says that isn't real DT.
So if you don't mind, please list some songs by both that you think is a) awesome and b) you think represents their sound.
Thanks in advance, Metal Guitarists.
Listen to images and words. That is their crowning achievement.
