5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, ever-so-slightly cheesy, but ULTIMATELY AMAZING!, 13 Mar 2007
This review is from: Score: 20th Anniversary World Tour Live With The Octavarium Orchestra [DVD] [2006] [NTSC] (DVD)
Dream Theater have long been considered one of the most technically proficient bands ever seen...and on the flip side they have long been the thorn in many a rocker's side due to their flamboyant songs, crazy time signatures and high pitched, fluffy haired singer...

However if you love Dream Theater, or hate then, one thing is for sure - this DVD is MORE than impressive. Spanning the band's back catalogue over the 20 year period the band has been in existence, this DVD is everything about Dream Theater...

Eclipsing the very disappointing Live at Budokan released a couple of years back, this DVD features a simply amazing production, both visually and audio wise, with James Labrie's vocals soaring high over the lovingly crafted and sometimes hectic musicianship from John, John, Jordan and Mike...

Hey, have you ever noticed how many J's there are in the DT band names? And to think James' real name is John too....!!

Anyway back to the sweetness. This DVD features an orchestra for half of the show, and the band playing the full Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence (CD2) all the way through proved to be a lot more interesting and fun than I had initially thought. Somehow the band managed to keep my attention for the whole of its 251 minute running time, from the documentary to the funny Octavarium animation, and even the bonus tracks recorded in Tokyo and various other places were professional sounding and great to watch.

A lot has to be said about James labrie being on tip top form in this performance...something not seen since the stunning LiVE AT THE MARQUEE album recorded in London on the Images and Words tour.

This DVD is truly excellent, with plenty of replay value and a great production plus some great extras to boot.

I purchased this DVD with the CD version for about 22 pounds, an excellent price for this much Dream Theater...the only problem is, I can travel to and from work TWICE and still not have finished listening to Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence...!!
