2 stars This really is a hard item to review with a fair opinion. Keep in mind that Dream Theater's Metropolis Pt.2 is by far one of top 5 best progressive metal albums of all time, but this DVD does so much to take away from that album's magic.

This DVD features the whole Metropolis Pt.2 album in its entirety, though, makes it look like a cheesy high school musical type of performance. Cheesy acting and even cheesier screen effects really make this more of a laughing stock than anything else. Sure, the audio portion of it is amazing and that really makes the 3CD version of this release worth every penny but the DVD does little to make you want to watch it more than once, let alone one time all the way through.

Its pretty much a lock that only people familiar with the band would be purchasing this to begin with so I cant begin to understand why theres a need for the 1984 style block lettering used to introduce all of the songs. Plus, all of the other minor league screen effects really make this more of a stand up comedy DVD than anything.

I like to think of myself as a Dream Theater super-fan, though this is the one release I'd much rather forget.
