2 stars Ok, so there I was, in 1994, a 70s prog rock fan in front of what lots of people had told me was a fantastic new band which had progressive elements mixed to a metal basis. I thought: "Well I love prog, and I like some metal bands, so let's give this guys a chance". And I bought "Live at the Marquee". And now I have to apologise to the thousands of Dream Theater fans but I really don't understand what is so special about this band. Apart from an outstanding song ("Bombay Vindaloo" which is the only I keep listening to), the rest is so boring! The whole record has a dramatic lack of imagination and creativity! Yes, Portnoy and Petrucci are technically perfect but what about the absolutely necessary soul that any good band should have? I can't find it anywhere... Again, I don't mean to offend anybody, it's just an opinion but being a Camel, Genesis, K. Crimson, Pink Floyd, etc, etc fan I can't see the point in Dream Theater's music. Sorry!
