Which is a good way to get an overview of their entire career.

Otherwise, I would start with the album they're most known for, "Images and Words"

With "Awake" and "Train of Thought" being the next ones to buy.
Picked up the greatest hits today. I have not listened to DT before but based on comments from many on DW, they are a very important band. First couple of tracks are very metal but with an odd twist that I can figure out. It's like Sevendust teamed up with Miles Davis. Very cool music. And I guess it is Mike Portnoy on the greastest hits but his double bass and chops are awesome. Thanks for the suggestions.

This is a very important band, I get that now.
