3 stars 'Live at the Marquee' is a great chance to hear what Dream Theater were like playing live with Kevin Moore on Keyboards, and it's also pretty cool to see what they sounded like when they were still a young band. However, as is the case when any relatively new band release a live album, that is also the problem.

Being a new-ish band at the time meant that this live album, with only six tracks on it, is focused mainly on Dream Theater's first two albums. Two brilliant albums in their own right, but I can't help but feel that this live collection doesn't do them justice. Although an improvised jam by the name of 'Bombay Vindaloo' is a nice addition, the general feeling I get is that this album goes by too quickly with not much going on.

Overall this is a good live album, but I think for a true Dream Theater live experience go with something released a bit later in their careers, such as 'Live at Budokan' or 'Score'. A great album if you come across it, but nothing to cry about if you can't find it.

Valarius | 3/5 |
