3 stars This is the album that made me aware of this band. If I am not mistaken, I borrowed it from another metalhead. He got it back and I hurried down to the local record shop and bought my own copy. If my memories serves me right, this album was sold as an EP and it sold very well. It was much talked about in the local metal scene and I guess a lot of people got introduced to DREAM THEATER through this album.

The reason I fell for this band was the nice sound, the complex song structures and the freshness of the performance on this album. I have also played a lot of air-guitar because of Bombay Vindaloo. In other words; I would give it five stars for being the album who introduced me to DREAM THEATER and for the impact it made on the scene. But in 2009, this album sounds a bit dated. But when it was released; it was a great album and an important one too.

This album is a nice run through their earlier stuff. This is the first of many, many DREAM THEATER live album and a warning of what was to come. This is probably their weakest ever live album. But the band was still trying to find their feet at this early stage of their career. That's why it has historic value and it is one fans of this band should check out.

3.25 stars
