There are actually quite a few Symphony X threads in the forum. In the search facility, change the default of last 6 months to "any date" and they will appear.Big smile

if i can see them again for a second time, i would trade the DVD for that ANYTIME! but, yeah that would be nice. it's about time for them to hop on the DVD wagon. getting one together with their new LP would be EPIC along with the 5.1 mix of course.

Love Symphony X

One of my top 5 fav bands!

Can't choose which is my favorite between Divine Wings, The Odyssey, and Paradise Lost.
V is also quite brilliant of course.

I saw them and thought they were awful. I do like the albums though.

It's pretty routine for these bands to not be able to pull it off live. I honestly believe this is the only reason Dream Theater ascended to the head of the class. It's not because their compositions are reliably good, it's because they didn't fall on their ass trying to replicate them live.

I don't know about that. I've seen DT live because I liked their compositions in the first place.

What I'm saying isn't that they can't write a song. I'm saying they're the foremost of their scene but I think a lot of people would agree that they've written some real clangers here and there. What keeps them afloat seems to be their performance ability which can only really be measured by live shows.

OK, what I'm saying is that for me thats not true. I'm more of an albums person and I remain a fan due to their albums and nothing else. The fact that they are sh*t hot live is a bonus.

yeah i heard they weren't very consistent with that. it all depends how much they've had to drink that night.
Michael Romeo even usually brings out a bottle of jack daniels and sips between songs. at least he did that at my show. LOL

I didn't like Paradise Lost at all for some reason.  The Odyssey is very good, but V is probably my favorite.
