3 stars Once in a while I enjoy this live release

Dream Theater are well known for their impeccable live performances. They have also become known for their numerous live albums. Once in a LIVEtime is their second live release, and is in my opinion their worst. A two disc live album recorded at a festival in France in support of Falling Into Infinity, their (currently) least popular album. The songs on the album, although preformed well, are heavily protracted with slow openers and mini jam sessions. Although the performance is good, overall the album presents nothing that special to the listener, other than another live album to listen to. The instrumental spot solos awarded to Portnoy, Sherinian, and Petrucci are good, but can sound a bit choppy and unnecessary at times. In the end, the description of good, but non-essential is perfect for this live album. 3 stars.
