I have all the albums of Dream theater.One of my favorite bands.But Devin Townsend is not focused on technicality.Also,he screams.So,Devin Townsend.
Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

Devy, when DT do something half as decent as Terria, give me a call.

Dream Theater, they are probably my favorite band of all time even though their past 2 albums have been kinda lame.

DT.
 
I mostly find Devin lacking, mostly because he does not focus in one idea and develop it and, whenever he does develop his ideas, he streches it for waaaaaaaay too long. Terria has both problems.

Devin by a mile. He created his own style of metal that no one else does to this day.
 
DT added new twists to music that already existed. The guitar hero genre already existed but was very one-dimensional. DT made it into a viable band music. But Devy has more music in his soul than all of them combined.
Current Listening:

Heater valve kicking on.
Snotty noses being blown.
Griping.
Maybe cookies coming out of the oven???

C is for cookie, and it is good enough for me.

Dream Theater is great and commercially has a wider appeal! But first of all Townsend does near anything himself and expresses a passion and a certain honesty and personallity in his music which DT lacks, but thatīs allso because itīs soloprojects and more selfbiographical at times than it would be in SYL. But i think some of his records are some of the most sonically pleasing yet some of the more interresting YET accesable metal/rock music out there! DT, are prog giants and i like them nearly as much. Allso they are better technicians and rythmically more complex than Townsend could Dream of, but they are five men! Townsend is himself with a band, the guy can write two masterpieces a year where DT as a unit of five men has a couple of years behind releasing 1 either amazing or mediocre album(Townsend not perfect either) I think itīs a tie, both DT and DT lol has amazing albums in their catalouge! But Townsend is like the Roger Federer of music, in Rogers prime he won  three GS a year, Townsend released two or three great albums a year!

Devy by a trillion country, city, and astral miles. I mildly enjoy DT, that's it. I adore Townsend.
He gave her his town house and his racing horses. Each meal she ate was a dozen courses. She had a million dollars worth of nickels and dimes. She sat around and counted them all a million times.

Errr... just a note. Stop using the "DT" abbreviation on this thread, because, well...

Dream Theater
Devin Townsend 

Anyways, I have to say Townsend. I love Dream Theater, but Townsend is just such an amazing and versatile musician!
