This review is from: Score: 20th Anniversary World Tour - Live With the Octavarium Orchestra [3CD Set] (Audio CD)
When I heard about this DVD/CD release, I was hugely excited. Before buying I thought I'd listen to a friend's copy and I'm Glad I did! As a huge fan of the genius that is Dream Theater, I was really disappointed with what I heard.
The first CD is awsome with the usual wizardry on display but what on earth posessed the band to employ the services if third rate musicians to supply the orchestral backing?
The poor intonation, balance and quality of musicianship spoils what would otherwise be a quite brilliant performance by perhaps one of the greatest bands to grace this planet.
I only wish I could personally ask messus Portnoy and Petrucci what they were thinking of!
Never Mind, there's always Budokan to fall back on.
