3 stars This worthy live DVD showcases Dream Theatre performing their finest work in tip-top form. Featuring the entirety of "Metropolis II", we're given outstanding performances and a good impression of what the band's stage show is like (at this point in time anyway). The group sounds incredible, with the album's complexity being demonstrated with lightning dexterity by all members. Seeing them play what is probably going to be their best songs is a truely enjoyable sight, and waching their faux rock-star personas retreat into cool, calculating, deliberateness during the album's intense instrumentals is oddly satisfying. The production is fair, and the stage show is complemented by a rather silly video which adds a bit of tongue-in-cheek camp. A guest vocalist performs some of "Victoria's" parts, lending a wonderful touch to the overall effect. The DVD extras are slim but entertaining. All in all, a good live purchase for fans of DT at their peak, limited though by its emphasis on "Metropolis 2".
