@KevboLoL: Subjective. I enjoy both bands, and I'm sure the bands enjoy each other. Why must everyone take sides when it comes to metal? Can't we all join together to fight the Jonas Bros and whatnot? XD
I've said it all along: Symphony X are the band Dream Theater wishes they could be but never will. And it's simply because Symphony X can write cohesive and memorable songs and not just string together technically proficient instrumental passages. Also, the vocals are vastly superior.
