  • ….by this legendary band! Live at Budokan was recorded in on DT’s Train of Thought tour in Tokyo and is 3CDs (the entire show!) of prog/metal greatness. The concert contains most of the tracks from the Train of Thought album, excellent versions of This Dying Soul, As I Am, Stream of Conciousness, Endless Sacrfice, and In the Name of God. It also contains some real gems: an incredible version of Hollow Years with an extended guitar intro, Trial of Tears, New Millennium (one of the best songs from 1997’s Falling Into Inifinity), a 20-minute Beyond This Life which includes a fun keyboard/drum duel between Jordan Rudess and Mike Portnoy, Instrumedley, which contains portions of: Ytse Jam, A Change of Seasons, Paradigm Shift, Hell’s Kitchen, Erotomania, The Dance of Eternity, and other bits I’m probably leaving out. Also included are 4 parts from the song Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, as well as the rarely played Disappear. All in all, from beginning to end, this is an incredible live document of the band. And James’ voice sounds almost back to full power, and for the most part sounds really good, although not as good as it did on Live at the Marquee or Live Scenes From New York. An essential live DT album (they all are!)
