I don't know Fates Warning very well at all

I don't get all the love for Operation Mindcrime
it's a very average album for me

DT has some great moments so I would vote for them  over Queensryche

no vote
Prog On!

Dream Theater hands down for me, instrumentals especially, also even if at times I know and cringe at the vocals, knowing it's coming LOL hahahaha this said, I still like James vocals overall a lot.Hug

I'll give the vote to Queensryche, even though I like all of them pretty equally. It really all depends on my mood.

Dream Theater.

This is a hate song just meant for you.
I thought that I'd write it down while I still could.
I hope when you hear this you'll want to sue.

Queensryche. The worst song on Mindcrime is better than the best song on Scenes.

I never warmed to Fate's Warning. Queensryche was my favorite band for a large chunk of my life. Unfortunately, I dislike most of their output after Promised Land. OM2 had some good moments but I didn't like the change in sound after DeGarmo left.   DT is still releasing good material today and has been more consistent than Queensryche overall, but with a few less shining moments. DT still wins for me.

I enjoy all three. Back in the early nineties I would have said Dream Theater, but I´ve kind of lost interest in their music with each new release. Queensr˙che has released a few good albums and lot of not so interesting ones, so it´s Fates Warning for me. I enjoy most of their output.

depending the period ,

I love DT from start to  Scenes included, then they  gone on other paths, love Queensryche from start to Promised land, then gone to other horizons never came back really

and love Fates Warning but only with Alder on voice, never enjoyng Arch at all

so probably will be a band called Warning Theater of Queensryche for me

We all know the obvious winner here, and the poll wasn't really needed to know it LOL

Much as it pains me though, I have to chuck another vote for DT. I don't know what it is...but Fates Warning never really sat well with me. I've listened and just not my cup o tea. Queensryche I like even less.

Though out of all the "classic" prog metal bands you missed one, the one which would get my real vote:

Psychotic Waltz!

Queensryche's one of my favorite bands, primarily for their Rage for Order-Warning-Mindcrime-Empire-Promised Land material. Nothing else really comes to mind when I think of them. 

I'd place Dream Theater and Fates Warning on the same level in my heart - great, technical, catchy (sometimes) powerish-prog metal inspired by Iron Maiden and Rush. Neither hit my heart. Neither blow my mind. Both entertain me at times.

I like Dream theater more overall, but Fates Warning is phenomanal in thier own way and Operation Mind Crime is a great Queensryche album. I'm stil on the fence about Empire though.
