Dream Theater: James LaBrie (vocals); John Petrucci (guitar, background vocals); Jordan Rudess (keyboards); John Myung (bass); Mike Portnoy (drums, percussion, background vocals). Additional personnel: Howard Portnoy (percussion). Recorded at Bear Tracks Studios and Little Bear Studios, Suffern, New York between March & August 2001. On this, Dream Theater's seventh studio effort, the heavier elements of the band's music come to the forefront. Although the masterful balance of rhythmic interplay, jazzy arrangement, and catchy melodies is ever-present on this two-disc offering, the strong, crunchy guitar sound and powerhouse percussion are pushed more into prominence, helped along by the crystal clear production of drummer Mike Portnoy and guitarist John Petrucci. The first disc is comprised of five tracks, averaging about 10 minutes each and the second disc is a 42-minute opus complete with overture and finale. The length of the songs, rather than being a hindrance, allows for both a sense of completeness... Minimize

Six Degrees of Greatness
Pros: Album has multiple flavors for different tastes, still maintains original Dream Theater greatness and substyle.
Cons: Doesn't have the same entrancing feel as Scenes from a Memory did.
I highly recommend this album to anyone, because of it's versatility... and I recommend it most to Dream Theater fans because you will not be disappointed. Read More at Epinions.com

96 minutes of progressive rock as only Dream Theater can deliver.
Pros: Amazing playing (as to be expected). Crisp production. Plenty of material.
Cons: Some weak moments. Songwriting occasionally takes a backseat to musical prowess. Uneven lyrics.
Dream Theater shows even more songwriting growth on this release but people wanting simplistic 4-chord music will probably hate this complex release. Read More at Epinions.com
