I usually hate these "What's your favorite?" polls, but given the diverseness in this community, this one could be interesting.

So, use the poll & tell us "What's your favorite Dream Theater studio album?" Let's get an accurate count though. Don't just post a comment. VOTE ON THE POLL ALSO!

If I could only pick one, it would be SFAM.

SFAM with no doubt!
Followed by Awake.
This is my 4th Awake CD, since previous 3 got full of scratches and turned unplayable after years of use/abuse!

Awake, I never bought another DT album, because all the others I listened to weren't even close to Awake...

Agreed 100%. Awake is very hard to beat, but SFAM inches forward every so slighty. Either way, it's a tough call.

Too right. Learning to Live gives it the slightest of margins to beat Awake for me. Ideally, my choice would be both.
Yeah yeah yeah...your username made it pretty obvious which one you like the most. LOL :lol:

I thing those programmed snares on I&W could be re-recorded with acoustic ones, uh? ;)
I&W: Album of the century with real acoustic drums!!!
Go, Mike...

I'd have to go with Train of Thought simply because it was heavy, Petrucci's playing was phenomenal, AND I just loved the instrumental. I listened to that entire cd over and over and over again for like two weeks straight after I got it.

Cool poll, because other than the last two (I HAVE ToT, but haven't even LISTENED to it yet, and I don't have 8ve-arium) and the exception that I pick I&W as the best, the order is how I'd have put them.

I voted for I&W, I think it's the most complete album. Awake had some great tracks on it, and I really love some of the ones from when dream and Day unite too (much to my shame).

My favourite track though is JP's solo off the live in Tokyo concert. I think it's called Moon Bubbles.

I´ve voted Scenes because I HATE it for one reason: When I put it on my CD-player I can´t stop it untill it ends!!!! The music wants you to keep listening to. I don´t know if I had choosen Images or Awake for the second place.

Toss up between the 1st 6 albums (including ACOS)
The remaining trinity of poop is excluded IMO.
I think if I were to narrow it down, I'd say I&W and SFAM should be my top 2 and couldn't be divided.
