1. Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence by Dream Theater

Whoever put the list together sure likes Dream Theater. I think “Glass Prison” from Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence is a great song but I just couldn’t get into the rest of the album. I like No Exit and some Opeth but I am really not familiar with either these albums or the genre as a whole.

Let the bickering begin!
