** "Panic Attack" has a recurring riff that sounds very similar to Ridley's {{Leitmotif}} from the ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' series.

* VindicatedByHistory: ''Falling Into Infinity'' was a failure after it was released. Nowadays, a lot of people call it an underrated gem in their discography.

* VindicatedByHistory: ''Falling Into Infinity'' was a failure after it was released. Nowadays, a lot of people call it an underrated gem in their discography. A 2007 release of the demos from the album got quite a large amount of acclaim, with many fans and critics feeling they represent the way the album should have sounded in the first place. (The addition of well-loved tracks such as "Raise the Knife" helped, too).

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence" starts with a melody that sounds eerily similar to the way Music/{{Kansas}} began the outro to their song, "The Wall", and the "Solitary Shell" movement has more in line with Peter Gabriel's "Solsbury Hill" than just its title.

*** A fairly recent release of demos of the album's songs has been quite warmly received, with many fans saying they preferred these versions to the overproduced album versions.

** There's also a recurring riff in "The Enemy Inside" that has the exact same guitar line as the main riff in Music/{{Megadeth}}'s "Sudden Death"

* LoveItOrHateIt: ''TheAstonishing'' has quickly become this among the fandom. While critics loved it, the fanbase was really divided. Those who loved it for its story and for featuring some of the best songs of the band's career called it the best album since ''Octavarium'', while the detractors that disliked it for its 2 hour length, [[UpToEleven almost every other]] song being a power ballad, and the cheesy lyrics were saying this is where Dream Theater [[JumpingTheShark jumped the shark]]. Keep in mind though that the detractors still find a few songs off this album to be good, but a 2 hour long album gets really tiring to listen to.

** ''The Astonishing'' for some, while critics are hailing it as a great album, many fans see it as average at best, feel it is heavily similar to Music/{{Rush}}'s ''2112'' album, and that its 2 hour length and overabundance of [[PowerBallad power ballads]] really bring the album.
