4 stars For everyone involved in the life of "new" prog, and Dream Theater, they must know that this is their first live album, to me the most honest, and most interesting. Being a band of underground followers, that later turned to be a great succes in the rock media, showcases the "true" essence of the music created in the MOORE period. So... the first song, METROPOLIS, an unsung anthem, is almost perfect, linked with a very naive song FORTUNE IN LIES, showing a young band trying to leave their "metal" roots (point trying), followed by a great improvisational jam (these kind of "jems" show the true creative process of ANY band)... anyway, the show continues with the great SUROUNDED, a very light song in the outside, but very complex and strong, bonded with ANOTHER HAND / THE KILLING HAND, a revisted version of the original and ending with the famed PULL ME UNDER. Well, i compare this record to the GENESIS "LIVE", why, perhaps beacuse the small set list, the "casual" audience and the honest performance. Dream Theater will never achive a better "live" sound, beacuse nowadays they're confronting the excess, the fame, the fast-lane-endless-solos and the behavior of "leaving the old songs in the attic" as any band that has changed members do. Enjoy while it lasts as the Genesis album, beacuse this songs are now lost in time and memory (well PULL ME UNDER has been saved from doom!!!). A great addition to any collection, really.
