The songwriters of Dream Theater are up there with the lyrical talent of Bob Dylan, while their melodies remind you of the catchiness of The Beatles.
With a late-night vibe that is similar to that of Tom waits and "Kind of blue" era Miles Davis (but more "pure") they produce a type of "roots" music that is so authentic and honest that it would even turn "The Band" and Hank Williams into musical liars. Their guitar solos are raw and heartfelt and have a brilliant sing-along factor to them because of the "less is more" attitude of Petrucci's playing: they stick with you for the rest of your days: You won't get rid of his well chosen notes.
The average DT fan is a charismatic jazz-cat with a great love for for things that are "real" in life. Surrounded by "James Dean-cool" they hate sience fiction, mathematics and digital. They are extremely popular with the ladies because of their romantic urge and their ability to play "Dream Theater songs" on the piano for the girl by moonlight...
