5 stars Their Peak... surely...!!!!

This should have been called "Once in a Livetime" cause this is it... I own every single DVD from them, and as each one has it's own identity and concept, this is their best performance for sure... Yes, some could say Score is better, yes, Labrie sings better there and the symphonic orquesthra is amazing... but the life on the performance is right here... just listen to "The Spirit carries on" You can feel the emotion, the exciment of the crowd... over 3 hours of pure excitment... just unmatchable...

I forgot about this DVD for months... but I pick it up a few days ago and I really end so excited about it... I forgot how good it was... really... This is the fair evocation of their Masterpiece... The performance is quite well... no mistakes... perfection in everything they play -well, Labrie didn't made it perfect, but at least way much better that "5 Years in a LIVEtime"- the only thing that really is not that great is the footage they use... seems a little low budget but that's don't make any difference... if you like prog metal, this is the peak of it... for sure.... As Mike Portnoy was the director, he knew perfectly which thing the fans wanted to see... so you will be satisfy seeing how the 5 of them play everything... so it's great... and you can see also that Rudess can play all that crazy stuff using just one keyboard... God, I miss those days... I don't like all his fancy stuff that he use now.. but then... This is it... go now... buy it... and enjoy... this is really the DVD you should have from them... surely... no regrets...!!!
