4 stars This is a BIG demostration of powerful Dream Theater live performances. The songs are played excellent, but some of them with some changes. "Puppies on acid" it's like the introduction of Awake's "The mirror" before the voice enters, very overdistorted guitar, it blows up your head!! Another variation (the best moment of the concert) is at the end of "Take the time" with that rock and roll improvisation, YEAH, IT ROCKS!!!!!! Also at the beggining of "Scarred" there is an excellent guitar solo with atmosphere keyboards on the background (reminds me of Pink Floyd). Well... in "A change of seasons part VI" and "Ytse jam" is a full prog instrumental part, full, full of tempo changes. Mike is a BEAST playing drum, as so many people knows, it seems like he has 3 hands, and that double drum bass pedal, powerful!!! On "Peruvian skies" they add a part of a Pink Floyd song that goes nice with the song. The Petrucci's guitar solo is nice , it seems improvised, with some very fast moments, and he adds some classical music things and there are some Liquid Tension Experiment thigs too. The medley is very good, it has some improvisation in "Metropolis pt1". Nice to finich the concert with "A change of seasons pt VII".

This is an excellent addition in every discography, if you want to add a very POWERFUL concert.
