Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence
January 29, 2002
Studio Release

This is Dream Theater's sixth studio album and their first 2CD studio release. Heavier sounds prevail in this disc dominated by long, complete songs and filled with catchy melodies and improvisational examples of each musician's sheer talent. The second disc, composed entirely of one song, is one 42-minute song complete with an overture and finale showing eloquence in both composition and playing.

The following albums were quoted as influences for this album: Metallica - Master Of Puppets, Tool - Ænima, Radiohead - OK Computer, Radiohead - unknown bootleg, Pantera - Far Beyond Driven, U2 - Actung Baby, Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral, Soundgarden - Superunknown, Alice In Chains - Dirt, Kevin Gilbert - Thud, Bartok, Rage Against The Machine - Battle for Los Angeles, Maria Tipo - Chopin Nocturnes, King's X - Faith Hope Love, and Galactic Cowboys - Space In Your Face (the King's X and Galactic Cowboys CDs were only to play the 8 string bass sounds to John Myung)
