4 stars 6 Degrees of Inner Turbulence is a great follow up to possible one of the greatest albums of all time; Scenes From A Memory. Some people criticize Dream Theater for losing there magic and not progressing as musicians. But clearly at this point in there career they are still evolving. There sound has definitely changed over the years, from the sound of Imaged and Words to SFAM. And now 6 Degrees of Inner Turbulence. This I would say a very experimental album especially the first disk. It starts with "Glass Prison" which is the heaviest song in Dream Theaters catalog until there next album Train Of Thought but, nonetheless it is a very good song which starts Mike Portnoy's "12 steps suit". "Misunderstood" has one of my favorite guitar solo's of all time. Its not a shred fest. its truly unique, sounding like a screeching monster. "Disappear" is a bit of a disappointment. It feels like "Space-dye Vest" but, not nearly as good. The second Disc is all one song. Which is a good song all together but slow at times like the "overture" and the anti-climatic "Losing Time" but, in between it is great fun. The subject of mental illness is slightly depressing but the music is interesting like in "solitary shell".
