5.0 out of 5 stars ~Amazing Performance!!!~, 22 Aug. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This DVD show Dream Theater (DT) live at the historical japanese avenue, the Budokan, at their finest. I think DT have taken their music at another highest after having Rudess on keys, he is much more than just a keyboardist, combining speed, technique, musicality, together with Petrucci, Portnoy and Myung, they expanded their musical level to somewhere that no one had done before. And this DVD show what the best the fivesome can probably do (not the last one, Metropolis 2000, though that feature Rudess as well but the whole DVD is badly produced).

The concert footage consist of 18 songs, 5 from the lastest ablum "Train of Thought" (As I Am, This Dying Soul, Endless Sacrifice, Stream of Consciousness and In the Name of God), and some old stuff, also a new "Instrumedley", a combination of some their highly technically instrumental medley from their old songs, neck-breaking solo, breathe-taking unison, head-turning drum works, what else can i say about this... I really can't find one second from the performance that's not satisfying, their performance is no doubt at their finest.

And on disc 2, you'll be amazed that they are much more that a player/musician, they have so much knowledge on their instrument, Rudess's "turntable" keyboard setup is mind blowing, he even considered about the emergency power supply, and Petrucci's guitar setup is just as stunning, he take care of his instrument to a very subtle detail, not to mention Portnoy monster drumkit and his drum solo......

DT is no doubt one of the most influential band nowadays, not only because their superb music and musicianship, but also on their devotion on their instruments, fans and the business as well... This DVD will become one of the classic live DVD of all time, don't miss it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of greatest live acts in music history, 20 Aug. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Outside Mexico City's Sports Pavilion hundreds of young Rage fans rattle metal fences and throw rocks at the increasingly nervous police. Inside, a seething crowd of 5,000 lucky ticket holders cram into the cavernous pavilion chanting anti-government slogans and poking their middle fingers into the thick, sweaty air while waiting for Rage Against The Machine to storm the stage.
One of greatest live acts in music history, Rage only affirms that fact with this show . Whatever club, theater, arena, of stadium they're in, the opening of each Rage Against The Machine show always feels like a grenade has gone off. But this night it was as if a truckful of bombs blew up as the band tore into the opening salvo of "Testify". Fans cascaded toward the stage like rippling waves stopping only to pogo up-and-down like jackhammers.
Longtime supporters of various political causes in Mexico, Rage were perfoming for the very first time in Mexico City. The connection between the audience and the band is electric. From the early "all hell can't stop us now" chant in "Guerrilla Radio" to the blood-curdling screams in the finale of "Freedom", there is an urgency at this show that is unrivaled. This is love rock & roll as it's meant to be heard: fierce, funky, uncompromising. This is Rage Against The Machine in their finest hour.
Here someone wrote that it had a time delay on DVD. The rejected disk has possibly simply got. At me such problem was not. A fantastic sound. A concert excellent, buy and enjoy. Unforgettable night, 5/5!!!
