I think it was Overture 1928, not 1948.

My taste changes every month, sometimes even every day. But right now I am listening the whole Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence song (42 min) about 4 times a day.

times just flies by when you listen to Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, but if you are an "old Dream Theater" fan, you may not like this song, it sounds like a prog metal opera. he he. It's arranged perfectly and has very very beautiful musical themes repeated throughout the "song".
Yeah the song is about 42 min, but it's divided by tracks so you can always skip if you wish(I've never skipped), but I suggest you to listen to it entirely.

Yeah, it's good but it doesn't really feel like a song, though. It's sections are too divided. It feels and sounds more like a mini-album.

Now, Change Of Seasons feel more like one very long song to me. I dunno, maybe it's just me.

1. Lifting shadows of a dream
2. Under a glass moon
3. Glass prison
4. Take the Time
5. In the Name of God

In my opinion, Dream Theater lost their creativity after Falling Into Infinity, but that's okay, since they have made their marks. I heard Images and Words in 1993 and was absolutely amazed! To me, this is their best album, followed by Awake, but the song "A Change of Seasons" is also very beautiful.

1. Learning To Live
2. A Change Of Seasons
3. Metropolis - part 1
4. Trial of Tears
5. The Mirror/ Lie (belong together, imo)
