Bought this a while back and never really got round to giving it a spin. Finally listened to all three discs and...oh man...wow. This is a must if you have even a passing interest in prog rock/prog-power metal.

Disc One is probably the heaviest of the CD's although while there are a few chugging riffs, tracks such as "I Walk Beside" and "Spirit Carries On" are anthemic rockers.

The real fun starts on Disc Two. You just know a track listed as being 40 minutes long is going to be a prog masterpiece and "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence" doesn't fail to please. Once the orchestral overture is resolved after six minutes or so, you are treated to one of the greatest songs ever written. If you are a fan of Genesis, Marillion, Floyd, Wakeman or Alan Parsons there's plenty for you here. Some spine chilling guitar work and solos, you will want to repeat this track over and over. "Sacrificed Sons" is the other masterpiece, starting as a slow haunting refrain and dedicated to those who lost their lives in the 9/11 attack on New York though it does get a bit heavy towards the end.

Disc Three completes the set with another prog classic in the shape of the 20 minute plus Octavarium, with Metropolis closing the set.

DT have elevated into one of my favourite bands, yes there's some heavier stuff here, if you are not a fan of the chugging riff your attention may wander in a few places and the orchestra is a bit ropey in places (a by-product of capturing a live performance). However there are plenty of soaring keyboards and guitar soloes and I guarantee once you've listened to the whole album a few times this is music that will stay with you for a long time. Although I wouldn't normally recommend a "live" album as a first experience of listening to a band, I would make an exception in the case of Score and suggest it is an excellent introduction to Dream Theater.

This is a 3-CD recording of Dream Theater's concert with the Octavarium Symphony Orchestra at Radio City Music Hall in New York during their 20th Anniversary tour. Dream Theater are not the first "metal" band to perform with an orchestra but, to my knowledge, they are the most recent.

I am a fan of Dream Theater, enjoying their brand of melodic "metal", often interspersed with lengthy passages of pure symphonic-rock invention. This is normally aided purely by synthesizers but they recently released the album "Octavarium" where they also deployed an orchestra.

Whilst I am not a huge fan of "live" albums, I bought this one because it was reasonably priced and I was intrigued at how the band would sound live with the orchestra.

This is a very good "live" album. The sound quality is excellent and the band have managed to capture the excited atmosphere of the crowd well on the recording.

Disc 1 shows Dream Theater, playing without the orchestra, in their purest high-energy "metal" mode. For me, they are better than this but even so there are a couple of songs where the melody is developed that really appeal: the catchy "I Walk Beside You" and the amazing "The Spirit Carries On". The latter is actually the high point of the album for me; a beautiful, moving song that had the audience singing along with the chorus - it sends shivers all down my spine! A great moment!

The music on discs 2 and 3 has the band showing their more melodious and inventive side. The orchestra is particularly effective during the excellent, 40-minute long "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence". Other high points include "Octavarium" and "The Answer Lies Within".

This would be a good first album to buy if you are new to Dream Theater and tempted to try them out. The band showcase the whole range of their music and the sound quality is as good as in the studio albums: take that together with the pricing and you have a very good value CD.

I'll be honest, I really bought this for a live version of Octavarium. In this sense, I was not disappointed. The entire first disc is extremely well performed as you'd expect from Dream Theater, with The Spirit Carries On in particular shining in a way I feel it didn't on the original album. The performance of Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence with the orchestra also had me excited, but this is where the album really falls down.

I know one track shouldn't affect an opinion drastically, but when that track is over 40 minutes long, it's hard for it to be a small complaint. DT are exemplary as always, but the orchestra? There are a couple of wrong notes in here (I've never heard this from a professional orchestra before!), and some of the strings section sound horribly out of tune with each other. HUGE disappointment here.

Every other track is good though, mainly because the orchestra seems to take a back-seat other than 6DOIT. Highly recommended despite that one shortcoming.

By Mr. H VINE VOICE on 3 Oct. 2006

Triple live albums were scary enough back in the days of vinyl, but in the CD era, it takes on a whole new realm of fear. However, it seems highly appropriate for a band as grandiose as Dream Theater.

The first CD would actually serve as a splendid initiation to those yet to experience the DTs. Reaching right back to their debut album, "When Dream And Day Unite", the eight tracks are an exemplary demonstration of a band at the top of their game. It's absolutely superb with "Under A Glass Moon" from "Images And Words" a highlight among highlights.

CDs two and three take grandiose and go one step beyond, as Dream theater whip out a 30 piece orchestra to tackle the 40 minute masterpiece "Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence", among others.

The three hours of music presented here, recorded at Radio City Hall, New York in April 2006, set new standards of excellence, even by Dream Theater exalted levels. One listen to this and pretenders to their throne will probably just pack it up and go.
