Music Recommendation Post #4
First of all, I’m on my phone and I don’t remember how many I’ve done. I’ll fix it tomorrow if the number is wrong
It should come as no surprise if you know me that I like music that isn’t exactly pop. Progressive rock is probably my favourite genre, so long songs tend to scratch my itch. I mean, this song doesn’t even have vocals until 5 minutes in.
Octavarium is definitely my favourite song by Dream Theater. It’s also coincidentally their longest song and the first song of them I heard knowing it was them. It goes through several different stages which could be called separate songs, but all bound together as one whole.
What I really love about it is how it starts off as this calm song, building up and up and up over time. Growing in complexity. The first part is pretty straightforward, but then over time, it introduces more complex rhythms. At some points later in it’s difficult to figure out the time signature, as it changes between different time signatures
