5 stars This is definately a must have for any prog metal fan. Fisrt of all, one of the most interesting setlist ever performed with such a great energy, like the concert opening with the excelent The Root of All Evil, the incredible 26-minutes epic, Octavarium and the concert closing song, Metropolis. The band sound so great on this show, even Labrie don't miss one note, with the best keyboards and guitar solos ever performed by DT. And with the orchestra, it gives an other sound to their music, which is pretty good.

Looking at the bonus disc, the documentary is pretty interesting, with Portnoy, Petrucci and Myung visiting the Berklee College Of Music and explaining how Majesty had been created. Also in the documentary, some rare footage of the band in 1986, interviews with former members Charlie Dominici and Derek Sherinian about their experiences in the band and the complete story of Dream Theater (exept the fact that they skipped the A Change of Seasons part). Bonus tracks are not bad, but I would have prefered is there was some song of the 94 to 98 era.

My overall rating is definately a five star.
