Excuse me but I'm the only one who likes the album "A Pleasant Shade Of Grey" here? All the art metallers support only Dream Theater?

No, i love Fates Warning's APSOG very much, too. Smile

Tricky question, but if you asked about favourite concept discography I would say Cannibal Corpse. Conceptual as hell, no doubt about it.

But seriously, it must be MAYH or Still Life by Opeth. Riverside's trilogy as close second.

Ayreon - The Human Equation; Into The Electric Castle
Coheed and Cambria - The discography played through
The Dear Hunter - Act I, Act II, Act III (so far)
Dream Theater - Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence
The Fall of Troy - Phantom on the Horizon
Fates Warning - A Pleasant Shade of Gray
Haken - Aquarius
Neal Morse - Sola Scriptura
Pain of Salvation - Remedy Lane, Be
Porcupine Tree - The Incident
The Prize Fighter Inferno - My Brother's Blood Machine
Riverside - the trilogy
Shadow Gallery - Tyranny, Room V
Spock's Beard - Snow
Tinyfish - The Big Red Spark

They aren't all completely metal, but close.

You're not alone. APSOG is easily one of my favorite Fates Warning albums.  Smile

I have the Awaken The Guardian re-issue with liner notes from Mike Portnoy where he states that Fates Warning were doing what Dream Theater were doing before Dream Theater. Wink


Weird way of saying it, but it gets the pint a cross. Tongue

(I like the tongue emoticon)


Don't get me wrong.  I love many of DT's albums (Awake, I&W, 6 Degrees, among others).  Just wanted to give Fates Warning some props.

I love APSOG as well, even though it's not my favorite Fates Warning album. That would have to be Perfect Symmetry.

Second best concept album would be King Diamond - Abigail.

Yeah "In Search of Truth" is a really great album. Too bad Evergrey havenīt been able to reach that level of excellence since.

You know, I used to really dislike "new" Evergrey as well. Upon revisiting some of their albums recently, I like their newer stuff much more than I thought I did. Not as much as ISoT, but I think most of them are at-least above average. Smile

Deadwing was written as a story and I guess Wilson wanted to make a film to follow it but I guess that kind of went nowhere.
Lost respect for these archives when I saw Creed added, among other bands. Not going to be foruming here anymore. You can keep my reviews if you want.
