DT, but only really for Scenes. I listen to 90's Marillion the most out of these though; I actually can't stand most of their 80's material. Big smile

Transatlantic so far, but I need to investigate some of the other bands listed here.


One of my best achievements in life was to find this picture :D

Marillion, but only through "Afraid of Sunlight."  Don't care for much after that album. Spock's Beard second, Transatlantic third, and Flower King's fourth.  Appreciate DT's musicianship, but the music doesn't do  a lot for me.

Marillion, for Invisible Man, Neverland, and Ocean Cloud; for Brave; for Out of This World and The Space.

Marillion for their first EP, first four albums, Season's End, Afraid of Sunlight, This Strange Engine, Marbles and Sounds That Can't Be Made.  
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

Transatlantic, closely followed by Spocks Beard for me.

I do like Dream Theater to an extent. There's no denying the talents within the band (Labrie excepted ) but these days I just see them as a clever heavy metal band. Marillion I liked in the 1980s, but the Hogarth material has never hit the spot with me (although, even Fish era Marillion gets few plays these days). The Flower Kings, like DT has some exceptional musicians, but only 'Unfold The Future' really hits the spot for me.

Spocks Beard I liked as soon as I heard them - not so keen on the post-Morse albums, but after hearing The Whirlwind by Transatlantic I was blown away & now realise Neal Morse is a one-man prog rock revival.

The Flower Kings easily get my vote which is probably not too much of a surprise.

I like all 5 bands though.  The order 2 through to 5 would change from time to time.  Presently Transatlantic at 2, then Marillion, DT and Spock's Beard.

Flower Kings for me, though I did give some consideration to Spock's Beard in light of this year's release from them.  

For some reason, I don't like Transatlantic nearly as much as any of the original bands, I don't know exactly why that is but The Whirlwind left me cold.  The two before that have some great moments but I listen to the other bands far more often than the supergroup.  My ranking is something like this:

The Flower Kings
Spock's Beard
Dream Theater
Marillion
Transatlantic

TRANSATLANTIC - hands down. I enjoy every single thing they have done.
It's where the whole is better than the sum of the parts.

I've liked MARILLION since high school when Fish was the singer. I do enjoy some of the "H" albums, but they are hit/miss for me.

Same deal with SPOCK'S BEARD - although I am a big Neal solo fan,

Recently got into THE FLOWER KINGS, and like everything I've heard so far.

I appreciate DREAM THEATER and what they have done but just doesn't grab me.

Regardless of what you like, its all good music and I'm glad we have it.

Up until the recent-ish vinyl issues of select 'H'-era Marillion albums, everything up to and including 'Afraid Of Sunlight' did it for me in one way or another - didn't bother with them for years after that - then I've gone out on a limb and purchased 'Marillion.com' & 'This Strange Engine' LP's - there are some genuine pearls to be found amongst the oysters - for sure there are more commercially minded tracks throughout, but when they do 'prog-out', they still got it !!! 
I am blown away more with Spock's Beard and Transatlantic though.  I don't get much out of D.T.
And me, for some stupid reason, voted for Marillion in some drunken stupor one night when it was meant to be Spock's Beard......Wacko

This is a tough one; I've never listened to Marillion, but I love the rest of these bands.

I guess I'll go with DT.

Interesting poll........based on pevious post s on PA I thought Dream Theater (or FK) would get the most and Marillion the least.. I find the later Marillion lp's after Fish to be smewhat boring except for a track here and there...and Dream Theater has too much of that chug chug prog metal guitar for me.
 
I went with Spocks Beard....imho their first 5 cd's are all very good.
