Between these two prog epics what is your pick?

For me Octavarium by a thin margin.

Your location is the name of a Rush song

Maybe my single favorite Rush tune, and I love Rush in general, while for Dream Theater I've never been able to muster more than "Nnnngh, they're okay," so it was an easy choice for me.

Battle of the epic title tracks!  Easily Hemispheres here, but I also like Octavarium.

My catch 22:

I don't like Rush (in general) but I like that album.
I like Dream Theater (not a fan anymore though) but I don't like Octavarium except for that song. 
Classical music isn't dead, it's more alive than it's ever been. It's just not on MTV.

Also, doesn't Octavarium make a reference to Hemispheres? Wacko

Octavarium very easily. Hemispheres is good, but I really love Octavarium. From Rush, I the only one that could come close to Octavarium for me would be 2112... and even so I think Octavarium would take it by a thin margin.

Hemispheres is a bit repetitive and boring song, Octavarium is not!
