"All of us in Dream Theater are so grateful to our fans for their incredible support in voting our album Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory as the number #1 album in Rolling Stone's poll for 'Your Favorite Prog Rock Albums of All Time,'" the band says. "The kind of support we have around the world is absolutely amazing and inspires us to keep making the best music that we possibly can for all of you!"
The folks at Rollingstone.com noted, "If we had kept in all the Dream Theater albums, Images and Words would be number two, and Awake, Octavarium and Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence would also be listed here. Lumping them all into this top spot was the only way to handle the flood of Dream Theater votes."
