Sound: This is a unique Dream Theater DVD. It's not one whole concert, it's two and a half hours worth of footage from their '94-'95 "Waking Up The World" tour and their '97-'98 "Touring Into Infinity" world tour. There is also some footie from their uncovered show at Ronnie Scott's in London in January of '95, and of their unplugged fan club show in Rotterdam, June of '98. Even more footie includes scenes from the recording of Awake and Falling Into Infinity, and the music videos for "Lie", "The Silent Man", and "Hollow Years". There is also audio commentary for the full video. Overall, the disc is packed with features, making this one of my favorite Dream Theater DVDs. The sound quality is a little off on a few songs, but it's no big deal. // 9
Overall Impression: This is a great Dream Theater DVD, and is very different from the rest. It has a wide variety of footage from many different places, and goes in no particular chronological order. Most of this DVD is very impressive. This won't get stolen or lost, it's never leaving my sight. Buy this is you're looking to watch some great music being made, and are up for some laughs along the way! // 9
