4 stars Now that's what I call a solid Dream Theater-release!

Granted that it followed the masterpiece that was Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory the band managed to touch on just enough new ground to impress both the fan base and make a lot more recruits into the Dream Theater army with this release. I know it for a fact since I'm one of those recruits.

I was completely blown away when a local radio DJ decided to play the entire Degrees Of Inner Turbulence-composition on commercial radio. Listening to this monster of a performance it sounded like the band knew exactly what they wanted to achieve with this epic track and they definitely succeed. It was safe to say that I didn't waste much time and bought this 2-CD release within the same week.

Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence has a great flow and not a single weak or even weaker track. The band really have a passion for the music and don't hesitate to show it whenever a possible occasion arises. It's pretty weird to listen to these early 2000-releases and compare them to the direction that the band took on after being signed to Roadrunner Records. Dream Theater should really go back in their catalog, listen to these albums and figure out what the new releases lack and why.

Anything below the excellent addition to any prog rock music collection would be considered ludicrous on my part.

***** songs: The Glass Prison (13:52) Overture (6:50) Solitary Shell (5:48)
