Biography

Dream Theater’s knack for balancing the epic and the intimate has been a constant throughout the band’s lengthy evolution. The group first came together in 1985, when Petrucci, Portnoy and bassist John Myung were students at Boston’s Berklee School of Music. Initially known as Majesty, the nascent combo quickly gained a reputation in the grassroots metal underground, with ... Read more in Amazon's Dream Theater Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Never a band to do things by halves, Dream Theater here delivers a two-disc extravaganza with a title track that clocks in at a prog-tastic 42 minutes. Very much in the style of its 1999 studio predecessor, Scenes from a Memory, the "Six Degrees" piece, which occupies the entire second disc, is divided into eight movements beginning, of course, with the overture. It's meaty stuff, though musically it alternately noodles and thrashes about in a somewhat haphazard manner while singer-lyricist James LaBrie's struggles to make an impression over the stunning instrumental onslaught. The first disc serves up five pieces averaging about 10 minutes each that hearken back to the grungier sound of 1994's Awake. The result is an album that fulfills fans' expectations. These guys have found a formula and they're sticking to it. --Mark Walker

5.0 out of 5 stars The paradigm of progressive music. February 10, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The cover art is grimy and enigmatic, intimating a sense of violence and aggression. The album's name is bold and maybe somewhat pretentious. What have we here? It seems to be an open invitation for rock critics to assault a haughty progressive rock band. This album seems to fit every critic's definition of "indulgent": a double album, the progressive disposition, and a 42-minute song. And it's Dream Theater.
Direct your derision elsewhere, critics. This may be a strong statement, but I have to venture to say that Dream Theater's Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence is the most dynamic afflatus of progressive music since Yes' Close to the Edge. The band mines a rich vein of influences and amalgamates them into something utterly intense and inventive. The music in this 2CD set possesses the devastating technical chops we expect from the band, this time directed towards a more experimental release than was Scenes from a Memory. At the same time, Six Degrees encapsulates a sense of brutal beauty and depth, with an assertive and clear artistic vision that defies any standard the genre has ever set.
"The Glass Prison" will probably surprise a few people. It opens the album with a metal fury of frightening velocity. No doubt the heaviest thing the band has ever done, it is dark, heavy, punishing, and despairingly intense. Because of its pulverizing heaviness and its lyrics (which deal with fighting alcoholism), comparisons may be drawn to "The Mirror". But this song is far more brutal and poignant (and at 14 minutes, it's twice as long). The song's speed is forcefully carried by Portnoy's alien-hummingbird double-bass, as well as Myung's chiming bass arpeggios. Vocals by both Portnoy and Labrie are fierce, and Petrucci's solo is desperate, shattering, schizophrenic, and shred-intensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars A VERY REWARDING LISTEN!! January 30, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've been a Dream Theater fan now for about 2 1/2 years. I own all of their releases, and it seems to me that with every new album, they just keep on progressing musically & lyrically. In my opinion, "SDOIT" continues this trend in fine fashion. The music is very mature, combining all of the great talents of each band member and molding them into something completely new. While I think they were able to accomplish this on their other albums, they really hit the jackpot here. Basically, the music absolutley ROCKS!!!! While I think every song is great, my favorites are "The Glass Prison" (a thrash-metal like song, basically it's Rush meets Metallica), "The Great Debate" (very cool song about Stem-Cell research), "Disapear" and "Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence" (like SFAM, but with more of a broadway feel to it). John Petrucci continues to impress me as one of the great guitarist of all time. John Myung does some amazing things on this album. I'm glad his bass is included more in the mix then it has been on past albums. Mike Portney, what can I say that hasn't been said about him. He's just great. Even with the talents of the others, the music would not be the same without him. James LeBrie, whom I thought really came into his own on "SFAM", suprised me with what I consider to be his best vocal performance. Also, it was nice to hear Mike Portney as a more prominent back-up vocalist on many of the songs. His work on the Transatlantic albums was great and made me hope he would continue to participate in that respect.
One more thing...DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS ALBUM ON A CRAPPY STEREO! Get a good pair of earphones, sit back and enjoy the ride. There are so many little details that one can miss, it really takes 2 or 3 listens to really appreciate what's going on. Overall, this album is an absolute masterpiece and proof that Dream Theater is here to stay. I hope that you all give it the chance I think it deserves. I'm sure you won't be dissapointed with the results!

5.0 out of 5 stars Progressive Rock Explosion February 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Progressive rock in general tends to attract comments such as pretentious, bombastic and self-indulgent. This CD shows little reluctance to refrain from these appellations. The length of the music, the threading of the elements into a complex tapestry, the effusive explosion of ecstatic instrumental energy and alternating between obscure lyrics and descriptions with moments of diamond clarity come together to provide fodder for even the most benign of critical detractors. In summary, this CD is fantastic.

The opening track to this two CD masterpiece, "The Glass Prison," has some of the most phenomenal guitar work of any band I have ever heard. Every time I listen to how quickly the lead guitar is being play I am in awe that human fingers can move so fast. The style combines hard rock, progressive rock and a flavor of nu-metal to create an original, technical, and yet artistic song. There is much in this song to commend it to a much wider audience than is typical of any one of these individual genres. Progressive long at nearly 14 minutes, the group uses a variety of influences to create an evolutionary song that is simultaneously challenging and listenable. This song is the antithesis of shy.

The second song, "Blind Faith," is generally much mellower than the dynamic and explosive first song. The song begins slick and smooth with less heaviness than the first song, sounding almost pop. However, the build up to the chorus puts to flight the thought that this song is anything other than a vicious wolf in sheep's clothing.
