5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy follow up to Scenes From A Memory, 21 Jan. 2002
By 
This review is from: Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence (Audio CD)
Following Metropolis Part II: Scenes From A Memory was never going to be easy, but Dream Theater have produced a worthy successor in Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence.
The album opens with The Glass Prison, following a subtle intro, it slowly builds in to what is proably the heaviest track on the album.
Blind Faith, again starts quite quietly, and builds more slowly towards a typical Dream Theater instrumental section.
Misunderstood has a quiet, brooding start but really kicks in about a third of the way through.
The Great Debate starts with sampled voices remeniscent of Awake, and builds into a fairly heavy mid-section.
Disappear is a quiet, haunting song which brings the first disc to a disturbing close.
The high point of the album must however be the 45 minute title track which takes up the entire second disk. In typical Dream Theater style it begins with Overture offering glipses of what is to follow before plunging in to the melodic About To Crash. War Inside My Head takes the narrative in to heavier, darker territory, and The Test That Stumped Them All is a dark, frenzied piece. Goodnight Kiss takes things much quieter building in to a Marillion-like guitar solo. Solitary Shell is probaly the most commercial track on the album with a chorus hook witch lodges itself in your yead and refuses to budge. About To Crash (reprise) re-visits earlier territory, before the rousing closer of Losing Time - Grand Finale.
Overall the blend of styles that one would expect from Dream Theater - and in typical Dream Theater style, if you don't like a particular track, just wait a minute!
