4 stars AMAZING!!! I could not find the CD/DVD edition, so had to buy both separately. No problem. What a Supergroup! This is one of the best live concerts Iīve ever seen. Four of the best prog musicians, virtuosos I must say, not only playing together but adding their very special touch to everything they do, even if they didnīt write the music (Beatlesīs stuff). Incredible long songs with a strong message, "Duel With The Devil", that we all have inside our heads, "Stranger In Your Soul" (My favorite), 1/2 hour of all kind of rhythms variations and drums, strings and keyboards amazing performances and cool advises too ("Whatever you are looking for, donīt ever start looking behind; you better start changing your mind first; anything can be done, stand up!") and "All The Above", the first epic they wrote together. "Suite Charlotte Pike" is the best Beatles music medley I ever heard, taking from their gigant catalog, not the most popular or famous classics, but the wildest and Mike nd Nealīs favorites. Neal plays all kind of guitars and keys as usual, even helps and shares a laugh on the drums section. Emotive moment when he announces "We All Need Some Light" and dedicates it to the people of New York after September 11th. Mike Portnoy plays a not-giant set of drums, showing that is able to do whatever he likes or feel to, even without the monters he usually plays in DT (Purple & Double monster). Stoltīs guitar sounds incredible and it is so easy to identify it, even with your eyes tight closed. Great contribution of his there. Pete demostrates that his music stature, is right from his head to the sky and guest is nothing less. The fantastic Daniel Gildenlöw ( famous prog group Pain Of Salvationīs leader), does a great job, helping the music to be heard and enjoyed at its very best. As all was planned I am sure.
