4 stars This live album is one of the best live albums ever, I havent heared this type of live album ever since the "metropolis 2000" album, this album is awesome, the begining is cool because of "as i am" and "this dying soul" with its unison that sounds incredible, they were in promotion of his new album, then beyond this life one of the greatest songs of DT, then the improv part I think, when Rudess an Mike show their improve skills!! great part, i also like the SDOIT parts the "test that stumped them all" sounds very cool and the outro part also, and the BEST THING LIVE I HAVE HEAR AND SEE is the "Instrumedley" when they make a mix of "the dance of eternity" one of the best song of DT, metorpolis, a change of seasons, erotomania, ytsejam, liquid tension stuff, and the end with hells kitchen sounds great! in this live album the 5 integrants shows too high skills specially Rudess and Myung, im not telling that Mike, John, and James dont play good, just that Muyng and Rudess played incredible, Jordan in her solo that I can die for, and John Myung in the instrumedley shows skills of one of the greatest bassists I have ever see. The instrumental song "stream of consiousness" is awesome do the extremely high solos of the guitar and the keyboards, but just the 1st half because the 2nd one where is the bass with a rythm is to bored and nothing to do with DT! but the other part is awesome. This is my first review and I hope that is good, buy this album and the dvd if u want to see great progressive metal in ur tv and stereo
