Dream Theater

April 9th 2013 -

I’ve been listening to a rather awesome Dream Theater album (my first, on recommendation from fellow Comic Irregular DK) “Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From a Memory”. DK considered it a prog-rock masterpiece and after listening, I have to agree. It helps that it’s partially inspired by one of my favorite films from the ’90s (I won’t say what, as it’s kind of a spoiler for the album).

Anyway, another Comic Irregular DMM expressed curiosity about it, so we decided to run an experiment. We gave him an anonymised copy of the album with another random prog rock album (I chose “In the Court of the Crimson King: An Observation by King Crimson”) and asked him to choose which (if any) he considered to be masterpieces.

The result:
Picking a Masterpiece
