Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence
our score: 3.5 out of 5.0
seat belts and get ready for a mind-blowing experience as you
take a journey through Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence,
Dream Theaters sixth studio album release.
On songs including
"The Glass Prison" and "The Great Debate, Dream
Theater" unleashes a full attack of blazing odd-time metal
signatures reminiscent of Pantera, Tool and old Metallica. On
the other end of the spectrum "Disappear" and "Misunderstood"
demonstrate a more experimental sound similar to old Pink Floyd,
King Crimson and Yes. The title track "Six Degrees of Inner
Turbulence" is a 42-minute epic, which demonstrates awesome
melodic hooks, chunky riffs, jazzy grooves and classical arrangements.
With the Six
Degrees of Inner Turbulence Dream Theater has come into their
own as not only excellent musicians but superb songwriters as
well. Self-produced by Dream Theater masterminds Mike Portnoy
& John Petrucci, the new album is sure to expand Dream Theater's
audience to a wide variety of new listeners.
