3 stars From London to Bombay ...

After spotting DREAM THEATER in 1997 I was falling into infinity and got curious about other releases from the band. The next I bought was this one (the european edition) because I wanted to hear something about their live qualities. Now I have to admit - not a bad decision - not absolutely the best but a very good live effort from the band (including a masterpiece!). One minus is to state: the total length is just like a Vinyl Long Player. But therefore the quality of the performance is nothing to criticise.

We have 3 songs from the last effort 'Images and Works' - whereas I'm missing 'Learning to live'. Metropolis, Surrounded and Pull me under are as excellent as the studio version. And they played also two songs from their first output 'When Dream and Day unite'. A Fortune in Lies and Another Hand - The Killing Hand are working live and with LaBrie much better.

But the best song without any discussion is Bombay Vindaloo - an incredible jam, perfectly played. Petrucci in best form and Kevin Moore gets in late but very sentimentally. This song is different to the others and until today one of my band favourites.

For a long time I only skipped to track 3 when I had this release in my player. But for this review I took on to have time to listen to the other songs. And what a surprise, I have to take back my former impression: they are not disappointing at all! Fitted out with the outstanding Bombay Vindaloo this album can be recommended with a clear conscience.
