4 stars This is really quite an enjoyable listen, and I like both sides a lot. Not my favorite Dream Theater, but not far from it.

In addition to being, I believe, a fairly accurate representation of the progression of Dream Theater's sound, it provides a logical transition point between two very different Dream Theater works. The Glass Prison and other parts of the first disc are a foreshadowing of the metal sounds of Train of Thought, and the title track is evidently drawing more from the progressive stylings of Metropolis Part II.

I like both sides, and wouldn't really pick a favorite song. The Glass Prison provides the sounds of heavy metal whenever I'm in the mood, The Great Debate is an intense and aggressive song without the extreme sounds of Glass Prison, and most movements of Six Degrees I can really get into.

Good thing to pick up any day you're in the mood for some variety.
