  • Amazing picks all around! Especially Yes!

  • Thanx Sir John! I don’t know few bands from your list but it will be real plesure to listen to them! I think some of them fammilier to Gordian Knot Or The Jelly Jam etc… THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH!

  • this is the best list ive found by people on here so far!

  • Great list – Well rounded! Really like your #1. Went to see them this summer with City and Colour and they were amazing live. Still don’t get the Trivium thing (I know they were your opening act and all). Thanks for some new listening ideas!

  • Great list. I have half of these albums. The new Yes, Blackfield, Opeth, Steven Wilson, and Radiohead are exceptional stuff.

  • Tempestscout13

    Seeing Yes this high is the best thing from Dream Theater I’ve seen in a while

  • Jared A. Washburn

    Heck yes, Myung! Great list. SOOOO happy to see Yes, Radiohead, Opeth, and Megadeth on there… all four of those are on my top 10 (along with A Dramatic Turn of Events, obviously!)

    red hot chili papers..
    amasing choice john

  • Vomit Bucket band

    If Mr. Myung picked em, we gotta check them out.

  • Oh my god, Myung’s top 10 is the best of all. RHCP, Megadeth, Yes, Radiohead, I love them. I took a look into Rudess’ and Peretucci’s top 10, and they arent as good as this one.

  • Balls_production

    uummppp ,,, 😀

  • Awesome Records. Nice taste JM!

  • lol awesome! but I can’t believer Opeth were beat out by Death Cab For Cutie!

  • Papa Smurph

    I like your choices, both in terms of what I already own (10, 9, and 2) and what I know I need to check out. Thanks mate.
