Looking back on the history of "Dream Theater vs." polls, I can say that this should be quite interesting.

Anyway, I vote Mastodon.

I find Mastodon's music much more interesting and tasteful.

Confused.  I like a lot of DT's early work but look forward to a new Mastodon album much more than a new DT one.   Since it is about preferences at this point, I will go with Mastodon.

Dream Theater. I hate to say it, but I quite like some of their stuff, though not all. Mastodon do nothing for me, either for or against.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

Something I notice with this poll, seems like nobody voting Dream Theater has chipped in.  Are they embarrassed of something?

It is James LaBrie?

^ Wondering same thing. Though it's fairly easy to vote against Mastodon for their vocals.

Here are some calmer ones. Approve

Yes, I'm afraid it is to a large extent. DT are stellar musicians, write material which is pretty competent if a bit formulaic, but then spoil it with vocals that are frankly substandard.

DT. I like Mastodon although Brent's vox can be a bit annoying at times.

Dream Theater by far. Never cared for Mastodon, though I've tried.

I even saw Mastodon in concert this past year on that Mastodon/Opeth tour. Mastodon were the headliners the night I saw 'em. I thought they were kind of boring, quite frankly.

James LaBrie's singing is by no means substandard IMO His voice is one of the better one's in prog metal. I think if anything his voice is more suited to symph prog; he's not a metal singer IMO.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!
