Dream Theater are an influential "prog-rock" band who have made their interpretation of the genre unique by adding a twist of thrash metal to it. Remarkably popular without having to resorting to Mtv propaganda, the Theater display their passion and flair for performance on METROPOLIS 2000. Directed by the band's drummer, Mike Portnoy, this video features the band's landmark August 2000 concert appearance at New York City's Roseland Ballroom, during which they played their entire acclaimed album, SCENES FROM A MEMORY.

This DVD contains the first part of their concert played that night (set on of two) and also some of part two. Also featured are short documentrys on the band, production, fans and etc which lets you see even more of the show played that night in between inteviews. Tracks includes:

Sound production is amazing, sounds as good as on the studio album. Visual production is good, although the split screens can get annoying sometimes, would of been better if this was an optional feature.

This DVD is just great. You'll be amazed with the quality of the band's live performance, and the story of the album is great as well. Every aspect is impressive and worthy of watching/listening to millions of times. If it were lost or stolen, I'd definitely buy it again.

Rating: 4/5

Rock on! :-({|=
