The live album from Dream Theater's Falling Into Infinity tour (and the last to feature Derek Sherinian on keyboards) is a mixed bag.

Musically, the band are on top form, although the individual solos by Sherinian, Portnoy & Petrucci are a little over-long; they wear their influences for all to see, and segues into short versions of cover-songs abound (watch out for snippets of Freebird, Enter Sandman, Have A Cigar & Moby Dick).

The only problem with this album is they should have allowed LaBrie a few overdubs, as when he's stretching his range, he either screeches, or loses the key entirely; this is by no means all the time, but enough to make you wince occasionally.

Overall though, a very good live album, especially if (like me) you prefer the earlier material and Sherinian to Rudess.

Words alone can't express how good this album is, but I'm going to try. I first heard Livetime when a friend of mine played it to me. Instantly I was hooked by the sheer musicality of the definitive prog-metal band. The versatitlty is made more than apparent, and there are moments of mellow light rock, jazz fusion and unadulterated power. The fact the sound is so precise is testement to the individual band members' technical expertise. It's hard to believe that it's actually a live recording! Watch out for the drumming of Mike Portnoy - you'll wonder how he can physically play like he does with only four limbs (I've seen them play live, and after an hour and a half of the concert he was able to keep playing whilst bouncing up and down!). Also watch out for guitarist John Petrucci. His playing is a paradigm of the band's overall style. In one concert you get spanish guitar (Hollow Years), blues (Lines in the Sand), squeally metal solos (Peruvian Skies) and even a bit of classical (he breaks into 'Flight of the Bumblebee' during his 8 minute long guitar solo). All I can say is "Buy this album!". Since hearing it about 20 months ago I've got all their other albums, and have made it to 2 UK gigs. There are musically gifted bands out there but DT are at the top of the list. If you like this album it's worth looking at all their other releases as well as 'Liquid Tension Experiment' and 'Liquid Tension Experiment 2' by Liquid Tension Experiment (a spin off band including both Portnoy and Petrucci, and also DT's new Keyboardist, Jordan Rudess).

This group is rather too hard rock for my taste but it is always nice to have a compilation album so as to have represented in my collection.

All you ever want from a live album. Dream Theater are on form and playing to their masterly best. They have to be the top prog rock outfit in the galaxy.
