If you want to hear John Petrucci cranked up to 100 and drowning out the other instruments, then this is for you. As for the drumming, it lacks the power and excitement that Mike Portnoy brought to this once-great band.
I have come to the conclusion they are by far my favourite band now. There's something about the sincerity in the lyrics, their personas and the mind blowing talent that just gets me every time. I literally sat watching the bluray with a big smile that kept appearing on my face!
And now to Mr. Mangini...
Ever since I saw that drum solo on Youtube of him at a Vai gig, I absolutely LOVED him! He is SO good, any musician worth their salt would appreciate what this guy is capable of. When I saw the auditions happening for him to be in Dream Theater, I got so excited! I kept searching for more news all the time and the dream came true!!
His drum solo on this is even better than the Youtube one. He truly is world class. I would say the best drummer in the world. There are some drum parts that Portnoy would play of their old songs he just wipes the floor with, like it's second nature to him. I could watch it a thousand times and not get bored. Just incredible!! sometimes playing with just one hand.
All the other members are superb, Rudess is just a powerhouse.

If I could, I would rate this release a 4.5. My only quibble is with the set list, which to me is a little unbalanced, but that is really just a matter of personal preference. There are already many detailed and well thought reviews here - I won't attempt to compete with those but would like to share a few observations of my own.
Unlike some reviewers, I think the sound quality is good. I have not heard the 5.1 mix but to my ears the quality of the stereo mix is such that I would rank the recording among the best of the band's numerous live releases.
In particular, I think the ADToE tracks benefit from this slightly more aggressive and 'guitar prominent' mix. (I thought the orchestral synths were overdone on the studio album). The band as a whole plays very well throughout and in my view they do not suffer at all - in a live setting at least - from Mike Portnoy's absence. They remain a fearsomely powerful - and it would seem very contented - live band.
I do find the video editing to be annoyingly fast, but unfortunately that is a relatively standard practice these days and it's one I'm (reluctantly) adjusting to.
In terms of the set list, I think the show would have been better had it included a true epic such as Octavarium or A Change of Seasons. Or something from Black Clouds and Silver Linings (preferably the ambitious and majestic Count of Tuscany), particularly as no live recording have been released from that tour. But a band with a catalogue as extensive as Dream Theater's will never please everyone and I don't doubt that most fans will find much to enjoy (particularly given the generous inclusion of the alternate tracks). I know I have.
I should add that the packaging on the deluxe version is very good. The hardcover book which houses the six discs is well constructed and printed on good quality paper and the photos themselves are well done. Some written reminisces from the band on the tour or perhaps a piece from their biographer would have been a nice touch, but again it is unfair to complain about such things. Beyond the inclusion of the full show (and bonus tracks) on CD, there is no additional video content beyond that included with the standard Blu-ray or DVD release.
In summary, this is an excellent release that serves many worthwhile roles. It is of course a wonderful document of the "Dramatic Turn" tour and a fine complement to that album and its fascinating documentary on the recruitment of their new drummer. It also acts as an excellent introduction to Mike Mangini for fans like (those in Australia) who have yet to see him perform live with the band. Finally, given the production delays and subsequent quirky timing of its release, it serves to very effectively whet the appetite for the upcoming tour in support of their recent, and very strong, self titled album. I, for one, cannot wait to see them again.
You don't need to be a Dream Theater fan in order to enjoy this, but if you are then whack up the volume.
The sound and audio for the Blu Ray are second to none and with bonus tracks, behind the scenes and a documentary as extras this is a music for any music lover and every Dream Theater fan.
