5 stars Certainly one of the band's finest works! If "A change of seasons" (the track), "Awake" (the album), "Octavarium" (the track) make up my personal list of Dream Theater's best music, "Six degrees of Inner Turbulence" has MANY moments which rank right up there.

First disc highlights - metal euphoria with "The glass prison", great lyrical ballads "Misunderstood" and "Disappear". The latter, in my humble opinion, is amongst the most beautiful pieces of music by the band - up there with "Space dye-vest". If a piece of art actually has the power to change your mood at the moment of listening, you know it has been written VERY well musically and lyrically. Isn't this one great purpose of music? To stir up our emotions?

Second disc - no dull moments, just great rock in roll. The band have not wasted any time with mediocre melodies or over-done solos. "Overture" is very enjoyable. "Test that stumped them all" is a great rush. My favourite track is "About to crash (reprise)", opening guitar riff, niiice! "Solitary shell" is beautiful.

Excellent album ++. Bumped up because I enjoy being spoilt like a fanboy fat kid with TWO discs of Dream Theater madness.

Rock on DT!
