Celestial Entrance by Pagans Mind is a decent prog album. But has anyone else noticed the uncanny similarity to Images And Words by Dream Theater at some parts?
Here is an example:

Learning to Live:

Listen to 1:47-1:56 of Learning to Live.

The Prophecy of Pleiades:

Listen to 1:53-2:02 of that. Doesn't it sound similar? And the last line is completely identical.

Under A Glass Moon:


Aegean Shores:

3:21-3:45 sounds quite similar.

Also, some Scenes From A Memory influence here too. Approaching (CE) sounds sort of like Overture 1928 (SFaM). Through Osiris' Eyes (CE) sounds sort of like Strange Deja Vu(SFaM).

Anyways, I'm not making any accusations of plagiarism. I enjoy Celestial Entrance quite a bit. I'm just pointing out things. Anyways, feel free to discuss.

If you had to rip someone off, why would you pick DT?

If there's one band I would ripp off it would be dreamtheater,

the first example is pure plagiarism, I love pagan's mind but this is just stealing!
second example is a bit more understandable, listen to a random heavy metal band and compare it to judas priest and you will find a riff of them in the song

Many bands have done - my estimate would be that some people actually enjoy their music? Wink

Groovy teenage rock with mild prog tendencies:
