Singles Edit[edit]

Should read like this: "Afterlife", "Status Seeker", "Pull Me Under", "Take The Time", "Another Day", "Lie", "Caught In A Web", "The Silent Man", "Burning My Soul", "Hollow Years", "Home", "Through Her Eyes", "As I Am", "Constant Motion", "Forsaken", "A Rite of Passage", "Wither", "Raw Dog", "On The Backs of Angels", "Build Me Up, Break Me Down" — Preceding unsigned comment added by MAJORA64 (talkcontribs) 02:35, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

I've just found out on the Discography page it's "Status Seeker" first, then "Afterlife", and in between "Hollow Years" and "Home" "You Not Me" should be there. (ASST) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.220.132.47 (talk) 03:29, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

EP Error[edit]

Sorry but there was an error: A Change of Seasons was listed as an Studio Album while SDOIT was listed as EP. A Change of seasons is the only song by DT in that album and it's a long song, that's why it is considered an EP. SDOIT is a full lenght studio album; Disc 2 contains only 1 song that's split in 8 parts, but that doesn't mean that it is an EP. Hfcxxx (talk) 19:21, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

I've always thought A Change of Seasons were a studio album, even though is just 1 song, but then Octavarium would be the 9th cd. So, you are right. Khullah (talk) 20:57, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

A Sort of Homecoming[edit]

I noticed that A Sort of Homecoming (Dream Theater album) is not on this template (and that it doesn't appear in the chronology boxes on the other album pages). As the article is currently an orphan, it would be helpful if someone who knows about the band/album could include it on the template (if appropriate) and some other articles to help incorporate it into the web. If it is not part of the official Dream Theater canon perhaps the issue of where it fits in could be addressed instead. Thanks! sassf (talk) 19:16, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

A Sort of Homecoming is a fan club release. I do not believe that warrants it to be an official release. Splent (talk) 01:43, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Regarding ACoS, ITPoE and SDoIT[edit]

I want to know your opinion regarding the last 2 edits.

DT themselves consider SDoIT as one song (only divided into tracks). They were considering having it released as a single track, but they let down that option so that the listener can search the parts (movements?) more easily.

So, SDoIT is as much of a suite as ACoS is! The difference is the track division.

Should both be considered as suites? I think so. Gilly (talk) 00:11, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

I consider both ACoS and 6SOIT songs, not suites. blackngold29 19:54, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
So, where does this leave us? Should the suite section on this template be updated? Gilly (talk) 00:10, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Removed 6DoIT from the suites. MP has explained in his forum that it's commonly mistaken as 8 songs, but it's actually only one subdivided into 8 tracks for listener's ease. Gilly (talk) 15:30, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
They are internal movements of 1 song, no suite. Khullah (talk) 21:06, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Quotation marks[edit]

Do the singles and suites need to have quotation marks on their names? I'm removing it, if any one bothers please note here and/or revert it. Khullah (talk) 21:03, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
