  • I just finished watching the entire DVD and it is by far the best performance I have ever seen Dream Theater play and I have seen them live twice. Most of the songs are off the “Train of Thought” and “Six Degrees” cds which weren’t my favorite, but the songs sound a million times better live. Now the BIG question…does James Labrie sound great or terrible like he did on “Once in a Livetime.” Well, thank God he sounds better than great here. He hits all the right notes and even sounds better than he did in studio on some songs. Of course Petrucci, Rudess, Myung, and Portnoy are at there all time best, and when are they not? No need to explain them. I love how they extended “Beyond this Life” into a 19 minute song with a killer Drum/Keyboard solo towards the end, and the awesome Instrumedly which combines DT’s instrumentals from all there albums (brilliantly executed!). How can you go wrong buying this CD, DVD, or like me…both of them? A full three hour concert, plus a DVD loaded with behind the scenes and other special features. If your a fan of great technical-rockin’ music, this purchase is a no brainer.
