repentance is incredibly boring and glass prison incredibly horrible... can't believe it's winning.

How does Repentance have a vote

I absolutely love all of these.
 
Sorry T, it's got to be The Glass Prison for me.  Root Of All Evil and Shattered Fortress are 2 and 3.
 
I'd stress however that all of them are 5-star songs in my opinion.

I second that.

I think Glass Prison and The Dying Soul are the best parts, the other songs, while still good, are simpler and based in melodies presented in this two amazing songs.

Dying Soul deserves more votes, I'll go with it, I think it's one of the best heavy DT songs, yeah a lot of shredding but priceless and appropiate to the song.

The Glass Prison, it's absolutely awesome and is my favourite DT track.

I'd put The Shattered Fortress 2nd & This Dying Soul 3rd (I've only heard Train of Thought fully once but TDS  was a stand-out track).

How does Repentance have a vote
Repentance is a good song... maybe great, until it gets into a 4 minutes of pointless "Uhhs" and "Ahhs" on the end, with many many words spoken that let down all the feeling of the song. For me:
 
1- The Root of All Evil.
2- The Glass Prisson (it surprises me that Teo doesn't like it, it's great)
3- This Daying Soul
4- Repentance
5- The Shattered Fortress (Though it's a good clousure, it's not near the first three).
Change the program inside... Stay in silence is a crime.
