5 stars This CD is where the build up is concerned funny enough quite similar to Flower Power by TFK. I rated that one 5 stars because of the huge superepic despite of the fact that the other CD was not half as good really. But I believed that you should reward the true heroics in history always with 5 stars.

With this CD by DT it's exactly the same story actually. The second CD Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence is one of progs all time masterpieces and one of the best works of musical art I know. I had the privilege to witness the live performance of the whole 42 minutes several years ago and I will never forget it. It's a pity DT never did something like this ever again although I am overall pleased with what they release. SDoIT starts with a classical opening, highly original just a slight bit resembling Generation 13 by Saga (which is not a minus !). Next three parts set the epic into more modern action before the Goodnight kiss ballad part sets in. This part ends with the most beautiful (yes he can do that too) guitar solo ever by Petrucci. Solitary shell and About to crash make this thing continue very nicely before a stunning grand finale rounds it off. I believe there's not much better around in their nor anybody elses history.

And then there is the other disk. And in fact this isn't bad either but is left pale by the other one. Short review of this one.

1. Glass prison. Terrific opener, very metal-like and inspired by the real heavy metal bands. 4,5 stars.

2. Blind faith. A lot easier but that is no surprise. 4 stars.

3. Misunderstood. A highly original track never doen before by this band. DT is versatile. Gorgeous. 4,25 stars.

4. The great debate. A politically loaded song, very impressive to me. 4,5 stars.

5. Disappear. Least song to me. But not even bad. 3,75 stars.

Added to the 5+++ of the other disk I think it's fair to say that this doubler deserves 5.
