4 stars As for other countries, SCORE is already available here in Italy, so I bought yesterday, on release date.

I didn't have a go through all stuff in the two DVD, only watched selected songs, and from what I've heard and seen I can easily give this set 5 stars; LaBrie is in extremely top form, all others are clearly into it with all of themselves, and they seem to have a lot of fun.

The music is of course fantastic and perfectly played, only complaint being that, IMO, there are more representative songs for DT career than some of the chosen ones (Innocence Faded, UaGM), and other choices could have made the PERFECT 20th anniversary concert... Or, DT could've played 4 hours instead of 2h40m, putting more stuff on the set list.

Anyway, there is no doubt about, this is an absolute buy, if only for the jaw-dropping Octavarium intro played by Rudess on a strange soft-keyboard... I must get one of those! Bah, for the moment I think I'll get also the 3 CD set, so I'll blow off my car's speakers...
