Dream Theater Ranked

More like Dream Theater Wanked amirite? Well, this is my list and to be fair a band with this much longevity, exposé and lengthy material, they are decently halfway consistent. Remove your two least favorite tracks from each of their albums and you'll see what I mean. Band sits extremely comfortably in the 3.5 spectrum mostly, and usually what is worse is pretty bad, and what is good, is pretty darn good.
1Dream Theater
Images and Words

Strong and endearing. Encapsulates the best of their compositions in a palatable form.
2Dream Theater
Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence

3Dream Theater
When Dream and Day Unite

Suitably epic imo.
4Dream Theater

I'm really not big on the 4 track run from Voices to Lie, but it's a fan favorite for most . This begins my 3.5's.
5Dream Theater

Fun and some good song picks make this a worthwhile venture.
6Dream Theater
Systematic Chaos

Personal Choice. I could put this over Awake if you'd let me, but it did take some time to get there.
7Dream Theater
Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory

I almost wanted to put Dramatic Turn above this. I still might.
8Dream Theater
A Dramatic Turn of Events

Highly enjoyable for me, and I think it does well in showcasing some of the band's real strengths. I guess it's not for everyone though.
9Dream Theater
Train of Thought

Heavy, middle of the road riff driver. I always wanted to like this more than I did, but what I do like (and forgetting the awkward stuff) is rather strong. As I Am, This Dying Soul, and Stream of Consciousness is what holds the weight of this in my opinion.
10Dream Theater
Distance Over Time

Enjoyable, and at times replayable, and At Wit's End is a recent DT classic.
11Dream Theater

Used to love this for the hits, but it isn't very consistent outside being a standard collection of hit or miss songs. Last of the 3.5's, though mileage can vary.
12Dream Theater
A View From The Top Of The World

[We'll have to wait and see where this lands].

10/22 - First impression so far places it here, but it could very well move up. 1 listen doesn't really count.
13Dream Theater
Black Clouds and Silver Linings

Really not a fan, but this does have slightly better instrumentation than those below it.
14Dream Theater
Dream Theater

Incredibly... unmemorable?
15Dream Theater
Falling into Infinity

Didn't really enjoy this and idk, the whole thing just put me off in a way where I skipped it as part of my relistens for this list.
16Dream Theater
The Astonishing

I was initially going to split this in the ranking between Act One and Act Two, but... no, it's just going to get judged as one.
