2 stars THE DREAM OF THE BEAST

I'm a big Dream Theater Fan, but not for being a fan I'm going to cheer everything they do, this time after covering "Master Of Puppets", which I think was one of the most awful things this American Band has done, they go for the most emblematic Maiden album.

The work on keyboards and the arrangements that Jordan added to these songs is good. I think "Children Of The Damned" is the best ensemble they achieve in this Bootleg, Jordan Rudess is the man in charge to play the rhythm guitar on the keyboards while John Petrucci is making the solos, the passages when they work along sound pretty cool too. LaBrie is not Dickinson of course, but he has some limitations for a good interpretation. John Myung has an excellent performance of Steve Harris original bass lines. Petrucci and Portnoy are precise as in the most of the times.

This is a good addition for any fan, but this is far for being an essential album on Progressive Rock or even an excellent addition. By the way, the quality sound is excellent compared with other Bootlegs.

So I'm going to rate it with 2 Stars.
