5.0 out of 5 stars their finest concert on a magnificent live compilation, 5 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Score: 20th Anniversary World Tour - Live With the Octavarium Orchestra [3CD Set] (Audio CD)
Its been 20 years that the combined phenomenal talents of these prog-metal titans have been forging their own destiny in the face of mind numbing grunge, nu metal and alt metal mediocrity, and we all deserve a fitting tribute. And here it is: one of their finest concerts ever on this magnificent live compilation and three-hours long too, totally focused on the music. Note worthy for the inclusion of 3, yes THREE, 20 minute jaw-dropping epics "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence," "Octivarium," AND "Metropolis", it's a fans wet dream (and a great intro point for the newbie too). But there is one track that stands out, even from the amazingness all around it: Under A Glass Moon. The studio version is great, but this takes everything up a notch and distils everything this band are about into one flawless classic: epic arrangements, thrashing riffs, soaring vocals, machine like precision drumming, transcendent solos (guitar & keyboards), complex fills and turnarounds, total focus and synergy. As Mike Portnoy says "this was one of the best nights of our career." Ours too mate.
