Sorry? Soul and Dream Theater were mutually exclusive. That kind of attitude really isn't healthy at all!
For 'soul' I could recommend something along the lines of 'A Love Supreme' by John Coltrane, a commonly cited album; but THERE is a man exposing his soul. Today my soul has really been touched by some Paul Simon (specifically the song 'Diamonds on the Sole of her Shoe' - no pun intended) but to regard other music as 'obsolete' is not only very misguided, it's also insulting to every other kind of music out there.
