Lyrics for Metropolis Pt 2 were never written and the only recording of the whole song is a rough rehearsal. However, various sections of the song were worked into Scenes from a Memory , most notably the entirety of Overture , and most of One Last Time. The song was originally written when Charlie Dominici was in the band, and was played live at every show in , although this version had a different intro and a slightly shorter outro.
Metropolis, Pt. 1: the Miracle and the Sleeper
Much like Pull Me Under , Metropolis is one of the most popular live songs, and is played often and with many variations. The band often chooses to extend the solo section by several minutes, so the song can go from being nine minutes long to nearly fifteen. The song's keyboard parts have also been significantly altered by Jordan Rudess since his inclusion in the band. The last part of the song may see the band vamping as LaBrie addresses the audience, as the song is usually played at the end of a show. As of , for the Images, Words and Beyond World Tour , the band have made major changes to the way this song is played live.
Firstly, and most apparent, they have started playing the song a half step down, so they are in E-flat Standard tuning, rather than E Standard, which is what the song was recorded in. Secondly, before John Myung's tapping solo, Mike Mangini plays a drum solo. Thirdly, after the drum solo, after John Myung's tapping solo, at the part where the keyboard and guitar play in unison, it has more of a stop-start kind of feel, and Myung joins the unison, instead of before where he would just be playing one note over and over on his bass. So I guess Metropolis.

They're both really good tho. Quote from: wkiml on June 08, , AM. Quote from: bl on August 18, , AM. Quote from: Bertielee on April 06, , AM. Quote from: pg on April 05, , PM. Fritzinger Posts: Gender:. Metropolis, a hundred times Metropolis.
While Home is a great song, I never understood why so many people consider it one of their favourite songs or even their favourite song by Dream Theater. I'd even rank it in the lower half of all songs on Metropolis Pt.
The best part of it is the ending in my opinion. Metropolis is also not the best song on its album, but it's still a masterpiece.

I think I actually prefer Home but if I was to objectively look at it, I think Metropolis is the superior song so I went with that. ThatOneGuy Posts: Gender:. Metropolis still remains my favorite DT song of all time, so that, though Home is fantastic too. A Change of Seasons.
