Pick up Dream Theater vinyl over at Revolver's shop

Dream Theater have a lot of albums. Throughout their 35-year tenure, the prog-metal champs have released fifteen studio LP's and while plenty of them are heralded as some of the genre's greatest achievements, there're others that don't get the same kind of love.

We asked singer James LaBrie to pick which Dream Theater album he thinks is the most underrated of the bunch. The vocalist ended up going with a record that was made during a very tumultuous period in Dream Theater's history, and that he doesn't feel got the right amount of support, for whatever reason. 

Falling Into Infinity

Well, I think maybe Falling into Infinity. I think it's a phenomenal album myself ... But that was a very trying time for the band. We were going through so many transformations with the people that represented us — management, label, and the personnel within the label.

Then, we were also going through some transitional personal hurdles. It was growing pains, learning to accept each other for who and what we are. We all have our idiosyncrasies, right?

I'm surprised [Falling Into Infinity] came out as well as it did considering all the bullshit that was going on in the periphery of things.
