[Highly rated reviewer]never have seen them live, and this was my first viewing of them. excellent.
Best Dream Theater DVD available by farBy deekoi (1 review) , 10 Nov 2011Amazing DVD, worth owning for fans of the band, a must have for fans of the album! This DVD has the whole of the Metropolis Part II album played live, as well as 25 minutes of extra concert footage; but the real winner here is the alternative commentary track over the main feature. The whole band got together in a room at the studio where they recorded the album, watched the concert footage back and chatted. It's funny and a tremendously interesting insight into the album and the band as a whole. I always thought John Myung never really contributed particularly much music, but he actually wrote several of the heavier riffs on the album. It's also really interesting to hear the interplay between the band members without their instruments in the way. It's also worth noting that the main feature doesn't take too long - this is a really good thing, as for a while they started to do 3 or four hour sets (see the 3 dvd set Live at Budukan), which frankly is just too much to be able to take in. This is long enough to satisfy, but leave you wanting to come back to it a few times over as well; and with the alternate commentary, it is the best Dream Theater DVD available. By all means rent it first, but you won't be happy about having to send it back, and you will end up buying it!

Scenes From A DreamBy Clanhaigh from Cheshire , 01 Mar 2004What can you say? The leading artists in progressive metal write a heart-wrenching tale and masterfully weave a magnificent piece of emotive motion around it. The resulting concept album becomes their most endearing album evoking tears of sadness and joy. Then they perform this album, in full, live in New York. With sequences of pulsating colour and light interspersed with beautifully directed pieces of film work strengthening the story they create a stage show worthy of the greatest names in rock. Then, so that the whole world can enjoy this spectacle at their pleasure Dream Theater release a perfectly timed and structured DVD encapsulating the very essence of Metropolis Pt.2s tragedy. Complete with a live performance of their earlier Change of Seasons album this multimedia feast of resplendent colour dazzles and strikes a power chord in your heart: a true masterpiece, from the true masters.
