Maybe some of their albums are, but I don't see something wrong with the Big Six neither.

Now, about Porcupine Tree or Dream Theater...

I don't find them overrated either. 

DT is a band that sadly, in my opinion obviously, has been going downhill in recent years and their last album was terrible. They announced they are working on a new album, but my expectations are low. 

PT gets some hate here on PA, I've always found their music interesting. :)

^When looking at the big picture it's probably true that none of these bands are truly overrated....since many votes have been cast from various sources here at PA and other places to give a rounded view . I do think that the hard core fans of certain bands certainly overrate their favorites.

Regarding DT and PT....(that rhymes btw....;)) I have never cared for DT's brand of metal prog, but I do like PT's psych/prog/electronic ambient approach that Wilson blended quite well imho.

btw...I was not aware till just recently, that the name Porcupine Tree was a joke on psychedelic band names..Wilson wanted something weird for what started out as a 'joke band' for fun   ....according to sources and Wilson's own comments.

What's over rated mean? Too many people like 'em? Oh no, say it ain't so.
