Just got it like 5-6 days ago. I really love it. The 42 minute song itself is brilliant.

Its nice that DT actually took the shackles off Jordan Rudess ..at least before clamping them back on again for TOT.

A great prog album. I like it better than Scenes From A Memory. Let's hope the new album is a return to form after the mess of TOT

Yeah, I hope it's more like this album than really, really heavy stuff.

I hope the new album has less Rudess on it. Great player but less is
definetly more. I have grown to like TOT took a while though.

It's my favourite Dream Theater album. I don't think there are any dud tracks there, and it's much more thought provoking that most of their other stuff. Both discs are great.

I was disappointed when I found out how metal Train of Thought is.
It's only knock and knowall, but I like it...

About Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, I thought the 42 minute long song is amazingly beautiful and I really loved it, but then the other part of the album wasn't really anything special. Yes, some of the songs on the other disc like The Glass Prison was maybe a bit too heavy for you Prog Rockers, but I have to say it is miles ahead of what Rush has done recently or later ELP. It wasn't much of a change from the "older Dt formula" except the songwriting has changed or somewhat changed. However, I do not enjoy this album as much as the earlier albums Awake or IAW and definitely not as much as SFAM, however it is a pretty good album overall, with a couple of really bland parts, but I can't complain too much. Overall a really interesting and exciting album. The second disc is just a brilliant piece of songwriting. CAN'T WAIT FOR OCTAVARIUM

People was disturbed when they were 5 threads about ELP, now we have 6 about Dream Theater.

At least ELP is one of the greatest prog' bands and has earned that right.

Please move all DT threads to prog' metal or better create a section for Dream Theater, so we are not forced to have so many threads about a non prog band.

There is no argument, but Dream Theater is definitely a Progressive band. You may not like the way that Progressive Rock/Metal is evolving, then good for you, at least everything does not like the same, old stuff.

  1. I don't only like old stuff, there are great new Progressive bands that you probably never heard of or simply don't care about.
  2. I don't think Progressive Rock is evolving towards Metal.
  3. I think Dream Theater a band formed by good musicians but without any structure
  4. I don't think Dream Theater is Progressive Rock band and nobody will convince me.

This is the Prog Archives Forum, not the Dream Theater forum, 90% people here don't like Dream Theater, why should we have to accept 6 threads (and a couple more in other sections) of a band most people here don't like.

There's a Prog Metal Forum, move there all Dream Theater threads, nobody is going to bother you.

Iván

PS: Just noticed there are no prog sub genre sections any more, I believe we're condemned to continue watching the overflow of DT threads.

Good album, as is ToT. It's true that both albums are fairly heavy, but it sounds like all of you ToT haters expect an IM&W or Awake clone.

Till now i can't understand why there is so much hatred over Dream Theater, they are great musicians, they make great music, prog or not, and not all their music can be considered metal, but prog, of course it is. If prog is to "break the rules", to be authentic and intimate with music then they are, they were metal-heads before and they couldn't change that, so what? it is surely prog because they are progressing in what metal is, have you heard the musical mess that bands like Slayer, Cannibal Corpse and all that pile of satan oriented headbanger music is? ok then, what do you prefer? Dream Theater is for sure developing a better metal style, and that is progressive for me, "progressive metal" in this case.

But by any means, as Ivan said, progressive rock is evolving into prog metal, that's never going to happen, and if it does, it would be a deep shame.

Now, about SDOIT, it is one of my personal TOP 3 DT albums (with I&W and SFAM), CD1 is interesting and has some great songs like The Glass Prison and Blind Faith, for this side i'll give 3 stars. But then comes the SDOIT suite in CD2, and now THAT'S a masterpiece, i love it. I made a review about it some time ago.

Autenticidad, actitud, pluralidad, espiritu e inteligencia, si es prog bien, si no, tambien.

Cd2 of 6DIOIT is progressive rock in my opinion, and its really great. I even prefer it to SFAM.

CD1 is more metalish, but contains some of their best songs. A truly great album in all. Something for everyone.

Progsnob !!!!!

The pot says to the kettle , I'm not the one starting threads saying Dream Theater is the best band of the world and over flowing a Progressibve forum with threads about a metal band.

Why Prog snob, because I don't think the natural evolution of Prog is Metal, because I like new Prog bands, because I think DT has no structure or maybe because its's a dogma that Dream Theater is Prog'?

If those are your reasons, I'm proud to be a progsnob.

It is me but it is you but almost ALL DT ALBUMS have BETTER STRUCTURE than most Prog Rock albums? If Images and Words has "bad" structure or even a word like "bad" can even associate with that album, I think I'll go eat some freshly powdered dog sh*t.
