That must have been a good show, although I got a headache 15 minutes into Dream Theater's first song (that's a joke about how long DT songs are, but I did get a headache during their set, great group of musicians though).
I really can't stand James LaBrie. I can't get into DT. If it wasn't for him I might like them more, but I guess I got a headache because of the combination of the fact I can't stand LaBrie and how their songs just keep going and going and going. Good musicians though. Maybe I'll get into them someday.
Yeah they're definitely an acquired taste. I personally love James LaBrie. But that's me personally. I don't know, I'm really in to progressive rock and metal so they just fit me. But I don't blame you, they're a lot to take in at once.
