** A very famous example is how some of their albums start with a sound that ended the previous album.
*** ''Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence'' begins with the static that ends ''Scenes from a Memory''.
*** ''Train of Thought'' begins with the chord that ends ''Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence''.
*** ''Octavarium'' begins with the faint piano note that ends ''Train of Thought''.

** According to ex-drummer Portnoy, the album's concept stemmed from his realising that (a), it was to be their eighth studio release, and (b), they had just released their fifth live release (which was "Live At Budokan").



*** What's even more interesting about Octavarium is that each of the songs is played in each of the minor keys that start with white notes (from F minor to F minor, ascending) - whilst the transitions between the songs are in the accidental keys between these.



** Heck, they have even done this between albums. For example, ''Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence'' begins with static, which ''Scenes from a Memory'' ended with. The next album, ''Train of Thought'', begins with by fading in with the same chord that ''Six Degrees'' fades out with.
