In all the times I saw DT, Glass Prison was easily the best opening song for a show,  set the tone for a balls to the wall night. :metal

I used to love it, now I hardly find myself listening to it for some reason. I love the heavy call and response section in the middle.

I already said this in another thread, but probably my favourite moment in this song is Mike's "HA" at 8:50. So awesome. And yeah, I'd say this is a top 10 or 15 song for me.

If I was forced to summarize the band in one song, it would be The Glass Prison.

The section at the end starting at 11:05 is so fracking cool I can hardly stand it. I wish they would pay it at every show although live it is never quite as good IMO.

Yeah this song, along side "A Change of Seasons" are easily the best lyrics MP has ever penned. He's never really come close in all his other songs.

I'll probably get beat up for posting this on the 'appreciation thread', but...

I just don't get the rave about this song. I don't like the effects on the JLB's vocals, and MP's voice kind of ruins the song for me.
Now, don't get me wrong, I love most of the heavier material, but for me this is among the weakest.
Maybe I'm missing something (and hopefully if I am DTF can point me in the right direction), but I don't find this as enjoyable as As I Am, or even most of the other songs in the 12 step suite.

I'd even go as far as to say it's my least favorite song on 6DOIT.

So go on, beat me up...

It took me a LOOOONG time to get into.  So did This Dying Soul.  Then I fell in love with Root of all Evil almost instantaneously and kinda found a new appreciation for the first two. 

Still can't get into Shattered Fortress   :-\

Glad I'm not the only one. I think the Glass Prison is VASTLY overrated.

Or maybe he feels that TGP does a better job of summaring the band than some of their earliest songs.
Only King could mis-spell a LETTER.
Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

I respectively disagree. I guess this just isn't the style of DT that attracts me.

This song destroyed me the first time I heard it. When the fast riff kicks in after the intro - damn, that shit was heavy. Then, the arpeggios, the introduction of another awesome riff, the totally unexpected but great vocal patterning, the mounting intensity...everything was just mindblowing. The perfect production helps, too.

Cunning, Baffling, Powerful.

Those that know, know. Funny thing is, I was drunk when I used to blast this song and annoy my friends.

Side 1 of of 6DOIT is at times my favorite by them.
