5 stars Well to be quite honest i don't like live albumS because well for one thing you sometimes you can barely hear the band cause they mike the audience and plus sometimes they butcher the songs you really like into something crappy. Man thank god for DT live albums lol because this is really good for a live album. well first off i saw the live dvd of this show and finally saw that they didn't have all the songs on the dvd from the Cd. So i decided one day to finally get this live cd and man its probably one of the best live albums i've ever heard. i mean gosh you have the entirity of METROPOLIS PART 2: SFAM all live and not to mention a fabulous guitar solo by da man John Petrucci. plus you have great songs from each of their albums except for the first one. however though my favorite part about the fact not only is this 3 disc but disc 3 just blows me away every time. I mean they play A MIND BESIDE ITSELF in its entirety which is ocol to hear that live since Erotomania is in it. Then they play an awesome live extended version of Learning to Live which gah makes me wish it was like this in I & W but both versions are good so ya. then for the first time on a official live something they play A CHANGE OF SEASONS which of course is absolute awesome. i think my favorite parts of the live version of ACOS is probably the out of no where drum solo fill in by Mike and the cool live solos by John Petrucci. Either way this is pretty much a cool start to get to know DT cause it sure helped me alot. a very great masterpiece if you love live albums
