4 stars What a spectacle. The sights and sounds on this DVD are huge from beginning to end. There are very few dull moments, and each musician is in top form. Anyone familiar with DT production will notice that the mix here is possibly the best balance in any of the group's recordings thus far. Personally, James Labrie is the highlight here. In past live releases, he all-too-often oversings, having a tendency to embellish parts that should probably be toned down. Here, however, Labrie sings from the heart throughout, having more control over his voice and bringing even more power to the high notes, which he nails in unprecedented fashion.

Honestly, there is very little holding my rating from an almost-perfect five stars. Other than a few odd song choices and an underused orchestra, this is by far DT's best live release to date. The set list takes advantage of both power and emotion, leaving a truly lasting impression on both the DT fan and newcomer alike.

The Progmatist | 4/5 |
