I was listening to Misunderstood while walking earlier, and it still has that je ne sais quoi to it, probably more so than any other DT song. Particularly the entire "second verse" section, with the little reverse bits in the background, and Portnoy's little rototom fills, Myung's bass, the snare hits echoing off in alternating stereo channels, then that little injection of feedback from Petrucci before the full band kicks in on the chorus.

Most DT songs you "get used to", in a sense. Misunderstood still holds some of that "shock value" (for want of a better term) for me, some 8 years after first hearing it. And we haven't even dealt with that mindbending coda. A song that leaves me in awe.
And you may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

There have been very good DT albums after 6DOIT, but for me it is part of the SFAM-6DOIT zenith that was never achieved afterwards. Especially CD1 has such awesome songs on it, like Misunderstood.

Six Degrees was the first Dream Theater album I bought as a fan anticipating a new album coming out. Easily my favorite DT album of the 2000s & 2010s.

Edit: I've always disliked the sound clips in The Great Debate. That dislike has grown into borderline hatred.

I think they help a lot to set the mood of the track, they work well for that.
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

I was a DTIFC member at the time, and got the special fan club edition of an advance preview cd, aka Four Degrees of Radio Edits. And personally I like both the radio edited versions of Misunderstood and Blind Faith much better than the album versions.
