It is good but there are some bumps...
24 January 2009 | by (Edinburgh) – See all my reviews

Definitely an amazing performance, they play tight together from the first note until the last one... The medleys are awesome, they assemble the bits of a bunch of their songs in such a smooth way... I enjoyed it!

Mike Portnoy is on fire, stood up for at least half of the gig... John Myung is almost inexpressive as always, but shows quietness and self-control... Jordan Rudess keeps turning his keyboard and makes weird funny faces... John Petrucci gets you in the mood whatever the song, may his sound be distorted and powerful or clean and soothing... James LaBrie is good as well, but we feel like he is getting old and Dream Theater sharp edged songs are a bit blunt by his performance...

This gig remains an amazing show though, and Stream of Consciousness never sounded that breathtaking!
