4 stars 2-discs with nearly 100 minutes of Dream Theater? this should be a no brainer...well, actually its not...

starting with the first of the "12-step": The Glass Prison. heavy and frantic, 7/10

Blind Faith: somehow, DT manage to haul it up to 10 minutes when it would have been perfect at 6-7 but its actually quite a good song 7/10 Misunderstood: again, a song that goes on too long, and this one is average, at best 5/10

The Great Debate: the best piece on the album (all of it)...i really like the interplay with the voices. 9/10 (would have given it 10 if the had taken a stand in the end!)

Disappear: writing this review, i cant remember how it sounds so it must be quite a poor song. 3/10

Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence: DT's attempt at Pink Floyd's Echoes (its almost twice as long)? doesn't end up quite as good as that masterpiece. the instrumental parts are awesome and probably up there amongst their best works. the other bits seem to be filling up the spaces in between and tend to meander wihtout direction with the exception of The Test That Stumped Them All which, Pantera rip-off (tribute) or not, is an interesting piece of work and quite unique.

in all, inconsistent but the good pieces are really good.
