4 stars The first time I got into Dream Theater was when a friend of mine gave me "Live at the Marquee", of a band called Dream Theater. The first time I listened to it I was really surprised. The first track Metropolis part 1 is EXCELLENT, very proggy, with a lot of tempo changes (It's like many songs together!!), my fauvorite DT song to the date. A fortune in Lies is a more conventional song, very metal. I love Bombay Vindaloo, an improvisation that sounds like arabian music in some parts, and it's only disposable on this CD. The entire song is soloing. But I can't believe this is an improvisation, it's played like it's a previously composed song. And also shows the HIGH Petrucci's habilities. Excellent track. Surrounded is the more listeneable song that shows Labrie's incredible voice. I can't understand that some people think he sings very poorly. Another Hand / The Killing Hand, it's two songs put together, nice song. Pull me under, inspirated by Shakespeare's Hamlet, is very well composed with a nice keyboard solo after the second chorus(the first one is at 3:45). The sound is excellent. It's an excellent live album,very recommended, but if you want DT masterpieces, you should get Images & Words or Metropolis pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory. PD: My english is poor, sorry.
