I'd go with Six Degrees over Scenes. Haken is better at doing 'pretty' sections, but DT has the best moments overall and is generally a bit more substantial.

I think Haken is the superior band, but they couldn't have done it without Dream Theater

DT though I rarely listen to them anymore. I just find they've wasted their considerable talent putting out the same tired riffing when they could do so much more.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

well if you compared the recent work it might be a different result, but as it is I'd have to say Haken have hardly surpassed their most obvious influence.

For me, Images and Words alone is enough to win this one.
I am currently digging:

Hawkwind, Rare Bird, Gong, Tangerine Dream, Khan, Iron Butterfly, and all things canterbury and hard-psych. I also love jazz!

Please drop me a message with album suggestions.

I don't think I ever voted for DT in a poll but I am now. Although I think Haken is the better band today (and I don't really like them either) DT's earlier work is by far better, I mean Haken is not even close.

I value The Mountain just abover Scenes from a Memory and Images and Words, but DT should win this one.

Haken is awesome, The Mountain is amazing...but just one of those DT albums is enough to surpass Haken.

Dream Theater

When he rides, my fears subside.
For darkness turns once more to light.
Through the skies, his white horse flies.
To find a land beyond the night.

seems like most people are only judging by the recent effords of the bands:

http://www.prog-sphere.com/prog-sphere-hall-of-fame/prig-sphere-hall-fame-quarter-finals/4/

today, haken surely is more awesome but hey, DT defined a whole genre and should win this if we are honest it think

Totally agree, Haken depends 100% on the work that DT have done during its career; sure Haken is awesome now, but without DT they may have not even existed!

Struggling to find much Awesomeness in Haken's latest offering, whereas DT last album is pure magic to me!

Omg for me, DT wipe the floor with Haken. No contest.
DT have true depth and their latest album totally proves that.

Raving and drooling I leaned on his neck with a screeeeeeeamm! ;)
