Product Description

Film of Dream Theater performing live at Budokan, Japan on 26 April 2004. Tracks include 'As I Am', 'Endless Sacrifice' and 'New Millennium'. A 25-minute documentary, 'Riding the Train of Thought', is also included.

From Amazon.co.uk

A treasure-trove for Dream Theater fans, Live at Budokan presents an entire three-hour performance at Tokyo's famed Budokan arena on April 26, 2004, along with a bonus disc rich in supplementary material. Disc 1 finds the metallic progressive-rock quintet at its awe-inspiring best, plowing through its catalogue of dramatic epics and jack-hammer instrumentals, including five of the seven songs from 2003's Train of Thought. Disc 2 features an extended drum solo from percussionist extraordinaire Mike Portnoy; gear tours from guitarist John Petrucci and keyboardist Jordan Rudess (fascinating for lay people and downright revelatory for musicians); and a half-hour documentary on DT's 2004 stint in Japan punctuated by tantalizing snippets of band rehearsals. The shooting and editing for the concert are a music lover's dream, with lengthy shots that linger on the performances of individual band members. Disc 2 takes this even further with a multi-angle sequence of the 12-minute "Instrumedley".

Production values are extremely high: it's a widescreen presentation shot on high-def video and nicely mixed for multichannel Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound (with a thinner, collapsed version of the same for Dolby 2.0). --Michael Mikesell

Hey all, just bought this dvd.
All i have to say is -wow-.
If you liked the Scenes From New York DVD you will absolutely LOVE this, and then some.
The video quality is second to non, much better than that of the Scenes..DVD, the audio quality is also fantastic and features the standard stereo plus a 5.1 mix.
I've usually been dissapointed with Dream Theaters DVD layout/title screens (I also have the Live from Tokyo/5 Years in a Livetime DVDs). Let me tell you this DVD comes across as very high quality from the word go, the animation on the title screens is awesome.
Onto the show..There's a decent mix of old and new with the setlist. There's the new favorites such as 'As I Am' and 'In the Name of God' (<My personal favorite from the new album). DT also mix it up with hints of some classics in the monsterous track 'Instrumedley' This track starts off with the first few sections of The Dance of Eternity and passes through Erotomania, A Change of Seasons the Ytse Jam and much more from DT days old and new, whilst alternating back to The Dance of Eternity now and again, this has to be one of the best tracks on the dvd.
James LaBrie's singing is particularly good at this concert,sometimes he seems to struggle with his voice, this is understandable as his vocal parts are hardly easy, however for this show he definately nails it, he sounds especially good on Hollow Years (which also features a brilliant outro solo by Petrucci) i'd say his vocals are as good if not better than his performance on the Scenes DVD and definately better than the earlier DT footage on their other 2 Disc DVD.
John Petrucci never fails as usual :D He seems to be really into the music of the show this time and nails just about everything (actually, everything full stop.

I bought this knowing it would be good but this is just amazing. No faults in it whatsoever. Sound quality is brilliant, camera angles are always perfect, bonus disc is really cool too (Portnoy's drum solo especially), and the best part of this DVD is that every musician gets credit for what theyre actually doing i.e. when Petrucci is playing the best guitar solo on the planet, the camera properly focuses on him. The contrast between this DVD and others such as the Scenes from New York is a big one. No goofy and pants editting for a start; this is just a straight out amazing live DVD!

Format: DVD
John Petrucci, Mike Portnoy, John Myung, James LaBrie and Jordan Rudess are 5 very unique individuals. All are jaw-dropping virtuosos at their chosen instruments (Guitar, Drums, Bass, Throat and Keyboard respectively) and together they create some of the most complex and captivating music ever created. Music 'connoisseurs' who claim that classical music is the most technical of all genres will be made to swallow their words after watching this DVD of the Progressive-Metal maestros in action in Budokan, as such a concert has never been recorded.
Opening with the spine-tingling bass harmonics (yes, harmonics on a bass) of 'As I Am', before switching to the 7-string heaviness of 'This Dying Soul' and the epic, 20 minute 'Beyond This Life' (which features an instrumental segment that will leave you absolutely exhausted just from watching it), the Dream Theater boys know how to play a crowd, whether that crowd is in front of them or back home in an arm chair. After watching for about 45 minutes, you remind yourself that you've only witnessed 3 songs from a concert which has 18.
The rest of the DVD is very varied; there are slow songs, fast songs, heavy songs, ridiculously complex songs, solo spots, instrumentals (including a monumental version of 'Stream of Conciousness', with its sweep-tastic guitar solo and outtro so good it will bring tears to your eyes), all displayed in crystal clear hi-definiton widescreen video with perfect sound and heroic camera work, so you can see every finger waggle. Every track is a winner, and the awe-inspiring final song 'In The Name of God' (which contrary to its title is in fact an anti-religion track) is as perfect a climax as could ever be wanted.

This DVD is the best one i own. John Petrucci is on awesome form, i recommend this to all guitarists.The solos are textbook and really kick ass!. His solos on Hollow years,Goodnight kiss are amazing. Minor niggles were the cameraman didn't always focus on John's hands during the solos, but this is made up for on the bonus material. On Instrumedley John is on angle 4, and features his whole performance on Instrumedley. Again blistering solo work. The production is top class, the images are cyrstal clear. As an aspiring musician this is a must own for any musician. I got this two days ago and i can't stop playing it. Well done dreamtheater!!.

I can honestly say that I am a big Dream Theater fan. I have all their albums and all their DVD's. First I bought the album (because it came before the dvd) and I was very excited about it. I bought the DVD the second it came out and I must say I became even more excited. The konsert is one of the best I have ever seen and I can't wait until the next live DVD comes. the DVD is packed with all the best songs of Dream Theater (as: Hollow Years, Beyond This Life, Pull Me Under, As I Am and many more) and it is all mixed together with astonishing keyboard, drum and guitar solos. If you are a fan of really good and powerful rock you have to buy this!
