Rollingstone.com noted, "If we had kept in all the Dream Theater albums, Images and Words would be number two, and Awake, Octavarium and Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence would also be listed here. Lumping them all into this top spot was the only way to handle the flood of Dream Theater votes."  To read more about Dream Theater's win, visit RollingStone.com.
