Dream Theater had to be in this thread, I really like how they make an odd time signature sound so musical:



It shifts from 5/8 to 6/8 , so we could call it 11/8 in some sections

Two I can think of off the top of my head are Pink Floyd's "Money" and Iron Maiden's "Brighter Than A Thousand Suns."

Actually, just thought of another one, Soundgarden's "Outshined."

Opeth- The Grand Conjuration. I learned the rhythm awhile back and it was really hard for me to play at first.

I believe it is in 16/9.

Really nicely flowing rhythms in those Soundgarden and Foo fighters examples, that's what I like about them, they really make them sound natural
