Default Odd-time songs that sound natural

Pink Floyd - Money:

Yes - Long Distance Runaround:

Rush - Jacob's Ladder:

Tool - Lateralus:

Unlike the examples above, I feel like some bands (*cough* Dream Theater *cough*) try to use odd-time signatures just for the sake of using them. The measures come out sounding unnaturally abbreviated or prolonged. It just sounds like forced prog jamming.

Hopefully that makes sense. Thoughts?
