I really like DT, Awake is probably my favourite one of their albums.
On the topic of prog metal, a close second album for me would have been Remedy Lane by Pain of Salvation, though I'm not going to start a trend of listing seconds, as before you know it, we'll be mentioning thirds and fourths and we'll have another top five thread! Already got one of those.

It's an hour and 15 minutes of playback, great music, a story, and a movie (If I get the DVD!)
Album, Book, and Movie all in one.
