Product Description


Never a band to do things by halves, Dream Theater's Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence is a two-disc extravaganza with a title track that clocks in at a prog-tastic 42 minutes. Following very much in the style of their previous studio release Scenes from a Memory, the "Six Degrees" piece, which occupies the entire second disc, is divided into eight movements beginning of course with the now-obligatory "Overture". It's all good, meaty stuff, but the quasi-symphonic structure isn't really justified by the music, which alternately noodles and thrashes about in a somewhat haphazard manner; while singer James LaBrie's elliptical storytelling struggles to make an impression over the rest of the band's stunningly virtuosic onslaught. The other disc has five chunky shorter pieces (averaging about 10 minutes each) which hearken back to the grungier sound of their Awake album. Guitarist John Petrucci dominates proceedings here perhaps more than he should, and only fearsome drummer Mike Portnoy can compete in the sheer volume and notes-per-second competition. The result is an album that fulfils all the fans' expectations of what this band do best. Despite the "progressive" tag, Dream Theater have, it seems, found a formula and they're sticking to it.--Mark Walker

5.0 out of 5 stars Dream Theater 2001. Oct. 14 2013
By Connor
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is absolutely necessary to own if you are a true fan of Dream Theater. Every song on the first disc of this album is remarkable, and memorable, and beautiful in their own respective ways. I've been a fan since Octavarium, and when I listened to the older stuff like this, and Train of Thought, I knew I'd love these guys forever. The 42 minute long masterpiece of the title on the second disc is one of the most beautiful songs ever written. Buy this mind blowing, speechless-making super duper double album. You will not regret it. Dream Theater lives on forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dream Theaters best Album Dec 28 2006
Format:Audio CD
If Train of thought is a Metal masterpiece, then this is the crowning jewel of the DT collection. Less Metal songs, and more Alternative rock, every song on this double CD is DTs best work. The Glass Prison is simply awesome, though a little long, Blind Faith, Misunderstood, The Great Debate, and Disappear are all better than anything DT has done before. The Solos put Under a Glass moon to shame.

Disk two is equally brilliant. About to Crash and Solitary shell are bona fide #1 hits. War inside my Head and The test that stumped them all are what Voices should have been. Honestly, Voices is outdated, and need not be a part of DTs catalouge anymore.

Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence is a testament to a band that is growing over the years. Buy this over anything else available. Buy this first, as it will live in your record collection until the day you die. Then, when you die, bury it in a mountain cavern so that in 5,000 years, next gen humans discover it and add it to their collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD! Jan. 6 2010
Format:Audio CD
Awesome 2 Disc set! The always amazing "The Glass Prison" kicks off the first disc and keeps going strong with "Misunderstood" and "The Great Debate!" The second disc contains one extremely long (42 min) epic taking its name from the title of the CD, which is now easily atop my favourite Dream Theater pieces! If your a Dream Theater fan, buy this CD!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dream Theaters Best Album July 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album expresses everything about rock. Dream Theater can express pretty much every mood in music with just five expert musicians. John Petrucci on his guitar blows me every time I listen to his solos. This shoots right up with Scenes from a Memory, equally matched. When I first heard Glass Prison, I thought it was impossible to make such a combination. If you're interested in Dream Theater I recommend this album along with a few others. The guys know how to make a good ballet; they've been doing it for about 12 years. Their technicality and talent is one that's lead them to my absolute favorite band. These guys brought out the way of Metal in this album, including the mixture of soft, hard, and medium level songs. Once again, I highly recommend this album to Metal and Rock fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Overall A Success May 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
Where do you go? You just made one of the best albums of all time, and for my money THE BEST album DT could ever make, in "Metropolis 2, Scenes from a Memory." It was all an evolution up to the most mighty and magical concept album possible. So what next?
Answer: a near-45-minute-long-song.
When I first heard about it when they were in the studio, I didn't flinch. "Yeah," I thought, "that's all they know how to do and it probably will lack some focus." Nobody can touch them for their virtuosity, but those who've got the Transatlantic, LTE, and Explorers Club stuff are well aware that this family of progrockers doesn't have to work quite as hard as, let's say, Blink 182 or Matchbox 20 (that's my little joke), to bypass radiofriendlyness and do a song that lasts for a half hour or so. I'm all about epics, and GIVEN that the mighty DT's release is guaranteed to squash anything the majority of kids are picking up these days (another little joke, I'm only 23), I'm only finding flaws with DT on the hardest of grading criteria. You'll notice this double set is still an easy 5 stars, according to me. But a 42 minute long song in and of itself isn't immediately guaranteed exemption from scrutiny...
AND...I don't know how they did it, but they did it. The epic 8 movement song is a near masterpiece afterall. ESPECIALLY when held up against Metropolis 2, Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence isn't a whole lot weaker than the former. Still not quite as good, but so much better than I would have thought possible. They really did "do it again."... Again Mike, Jordan, James, and the Johns have the maturity to balance excessive overplaying with songwriting, yielding the ideal scenario from virtuosic performers: strong compositions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sorry dream theater! May 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ooh ooh my turn to rate this album.
Basically for this album it all comes down to the 2nd disc. Oh sure there might be a few times where it can become rather awesome on the first disc (what I'm thinking is John Myung's glass prison) anywho 2nd disc is what I got this for and I don't regret this buy!
