5 stars Unique experience... The highest quality you can ask for...

I don't like the live modifications to songs. I never thought that's good for a song, if you go to a concert is because you want to hear some studio songs played live, not hearing extended things or modification. DT has always been very stuck to the original tracks and change very little on their live material. With this one they arrange a lot the material to fit an Orchestra to play with them for one a half hour plus some "regular material" completing 3 hours from all their cathalogue...

This is the best DVD I have seen in many many years... everything is perfect, even James Labrie's voice. Incredible... the sound, the production, the arrangements of the orchestra... Six Degrees of Inner Turbulance played complitely with the orchestra was amazing and over the top, but when you think you cannot be more pleased, you get Octavarium completely as well as Metropolis part 1... If you are a Dream Theater or prog metal fan, you HAVE TO SEE THIS VERSION... Is just perfect and is incredible that this amazing song could reach that level of quality and pass the original version... Is just perfect...

The material is more comercial and accesible than Live At Budokan... so This is a good place to start digging the music of the masters... these is a total live masterpiece... don't miss it... you'll regret it...
