#1 DREAM THEATER (including all side projects) - No one else comes close to the Majesty (pun intended) that is DT. Latest related item I got: Rudess Morgenstein Project: AMAZING!

#2 DANGER DANGER - undoubtedly the future of Melodic Rock/AOR -wish radio would get a clue and play "Dead Drunk & Wasted."

#3 TEN - still strong after all these years (not *that* many, actually).

#4 FAIR WARNING - YES! The power's back after the too mellow Rainmaker & Go! albums.

#5 HAREM SCAREM - love every single release they've done, although I'm more keen to the sound in Believe and Big Bang Theory - wish they had continued this style instead of wimping out as RUBBER.

#6 HELLOWEEN/GAMMA RAY - Although I still miss Kiske, Helloween is doing fabulous without him - and Kai Hansen's songwriting get's better every record.

#7 SPOCK'S BEARD - retro prog that almost outdoes the classics. On a related note, TRANSATLANTIC (DT's Portnoy's project w/ Neil Morse of SB, among others)is still the contender for album of the year.

#8 NIGHTWISH - no one delivers neo-metal like this band does. The opera vocals of Tarja are out of this world.

#9 DEF LEPPARD/BON JOVI - still the two best powerhouse rockers from the 80's still around

#10 PINK CREAM 69 - combining melody and power like no one else.
