Early on the proceedings Mike Portnoy proclaims to the audience that the group have a "lot of notes to remember" in this concert so that should give you a rough idea of what to expect. This is an instrumental album (apart from the closing track) veering between jazz fusion, prog and metal, and it shouldn't really work in this day and age, think Mahavishnu Orchestra but with added protein and you might be somewhere close. Sure there are the expected drum, guitar and keyboard solos which some may find a bit twiddly and somewhat self-indulgent, but for the most part there is a driving energy that moves the tracks along so that they don't drag and you might just find your foot tapping in spite of your reservations.

This is a weird project. Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater), Billy Sheehan (Steve Vai), Tony MacAlpine (Steve Vai, Planet X) and Derek Sherinian (ex-Dream Theater, Planet X) play music from their past. There are couple of reunions - MacAlpine & Sherinian (Planet X), MacAlpine & Sheehan (Steve Vai), Portnoy & Sheehan (The Winery Dogs), Portnoy & Sherinian (Dream Theater). So you will get a little bit of everything. Which is not really a bad thing. If you like progressive rock / progressive metal, you should add this CD to your collection. You will probably enjoy listening to it because you like that type of music and those musicians.

But it's not great. It just doesn't feel right. Mike Portnoy announces during the gig that they had "lot of notes to learn". Well, they learnt them all right, but it doesn't sound authentic. It feels like there was a gap in their calendar so they thought "let's get a super group together and go to Japan, than we'll just cash in". It never stops feeling like a one night stand, it doesn't have a coherence of a band. Also, I don't understand why would Portnoy do a project with Sherinian when he got him fired from Dream Theater. Apocalypse 1470 BC is missing Virgil Donati's drumming. Tony MacAlpine does not seem to have the best day of his live up there on stage. At least Derek Sherinian and Billy Sheehan are amazing.

Been Here Before, The Pump, Hell's Kitchen and Lines In The Sand are the stand-out tracks for me. Everything else feels just ok.

For those out there who love instrumental prog. rock, this is a must ! This double album contains all those things that Dream Theater no longer seem to have in their latest, self-titled, offering according to me. When I heard that Mike Portnoy had formed this group, I was very much looking forward to any music they might release. I believe there is not a single bad song on here, in fact, I find it hard to say which songs I like best so the best solution is to buy it and find out for yourself ! To put it another way, if you like all the musicians and their previous work and you like the instrumental side of Dream Theater, you need to get this !
