SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars As far this group is concern I might not be the right person to give my views as I was originally not a die-hard fan of the band. I only knew the band one there was a review in in I think 1998 about Operation:Mindcrime and I bought the CD. I enjoyed the album but I did not really explore further until I met some metal friends in Indonesia who suggested me other albums like Empire. Yeah, I think Queensryche is a good band even though I don't see a lot of prog elements in it. I miay be wrong. Couple months ago, my rock-mate Mamak lent me this DVD and I was amazed with the performance of the band and I told myself that I have to own this DVD. I was trying to locate this DVD locally but it was gone already. Finally I got a copy from my other rock- mate, Yos, who traveled to Sydney and gave me this DVD as gift. Wow! Many thanks, mate! Rock community ruleszz .!

Even though I'm not so familiar with all tracks featured in this performance but one thing for sure: this is an excellent rock performance full stop. It was filmed live July 27th and 28th, 2001, Moore Theater, Seattle, Washington. All members of the band perform to their fullest. Geoff Tate sings powerfully with all of excellent stage act and theatrical performance. He moves back and forth on stage dynamically and energetically. Sometimes he communicates with the audience with his body language while singing the lyrics. I think, he's one of the best rock singers in the world. His voice is truly clear and it sometimes goes into a very high register note.

Another musician that I put a full respect is the gentleman who sits at the drum stools. Yeah, Scott Rockfield. He's not just a drummer, I think. Besides his machine gun and inventive drummings, I love the movement of his hands as well as his body languages during the show. He does rock the theater! Great performance, Mr. Rockfield! Your style reminds me of Bonzo of Led Zeppelin and Neil Peart of Rush. But don't worry, you have your own unique style that I think all rockers all over the world would love.

Michael Witton does a lot of stunning electric guitar melody and solos. He does his job wonderfully, augmented with some melody and solos by Kelly Gray who also performs nicely. The guest singer Pamela Moore does great job in Suite Sister Mary in solo as well as duet with Geoff Tate. In fact, I always repeat this track many times because it's so attractive. Another tune that I always repeat is Roads To Madness - it was the tune that I heard through FM station, I really like it and the band performed this song wonderfully.

Sound quality is excellent - I play it very loud so that I can get dazzling drum sounds and stunning electric guitar sounds. Picture quality is excellent as well. If you love Queensryche you MUST have this DVD. Highly recommended. Keep on proggin' ..!

Progressively yours,

3 stars Look how the mighty have fallen. Live Evolution is a terrific overview of the band that I consider to be THE Progressive Metal rock band. It also chronicles the band's quick decline in the late nineties and is an indicator of why the band are the way they are today. Fragmented. Fi ... (read more)

4 stars This is an outstanding DVD that captures the history of Queensryche but is plagued by a significant flaw. First the good....extremely high production quality. The visuals are stunning, some of the best of any live DVD I've seen. The sound is also excellent, and especially shines in a 5.1 s ... (read more)
