4.0 out of 5 stars 20 years not out, 3 Oct 2006
This review is from: Score: 20th Anniversary World Tour - Live With the Octavarium Orchestra [3CD Set] (Audio CD)
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.
