15 oct. 2011, 0h00m par jukkakhanWhenever I get that dreadful feeling that my life is going nowhere, the first thing I turn to is Octavarium. Although it it does nothing to remedy the situation at hand, it gives me that tiny bit of reassurance that I'm not the only one who has felt trapped, and that as long as I continue to press on, I will find my way out. More importantly, it gives me some much needed time to distance myself from my thoughts and give them time to settle. Over the course of its 20+ minutes, the song progresses though five sections, each of them with their own distinct sound and feel, almost as if they were plucked from entirely different songs. But when taken as a whole, they bonds between them begin to strengthen and come together as the different parts of a long journey. As you progress through the different terrains, there are different messages to learn from the words around you. All of them valuable in their own right, but ultimately they share a common theme that builds the message of the entire album: the Full Circle. …

23 oct. 2009, 18h37m par nunolobaoQuinta 22 Out – Progressive Nation 2009
A passada noite de 22 de Outubro ficou marcada pela passagem da Progressive Nation Tour 2009 por território nacional. Levada a cabo e encabeçada pelos Dream Theater conta ainda com os suecos Opeth, os norte-americanos Bigelf e os canadianos Unexpect. O destino escolhido foi o Porto e muitos foram os que não quiseram perder a oportunidade de ver na mesma noite duas das maiores bandas do metal progressivo mundial.
Passavam poucos minutos das 19:00 horas quando, e como previsto, os Unexpect subiram ao palco. Desde cedo a má acústica do Palácio de Cristal se fez sentir e os Unexpect enfrentaram problemas de som durante todo o concerto. As guitarras e o baixo foram praticamente inaudíveis ao longo da actuação destes canadianos e pormenores técnicos, característicos do avant-garde, passaram despercebidos á maioria da plateia que se ia aglomerando em frente ao palco. Assim, os Unexpect acabaram por passar de forma indiferente pela maioria do público.
10 oct. 2009, 20h26m par WulfbeatFINThis is my dream Dream Theater setlist. The list contains total of 15 songs. 12 songs plus two encores (2+1)
In The Presence Of Enemies, Pt. 1
Strange Déjà Vu
Learning to Live (or almost any song of I&W)
**Rudess sick keyboard solo**
A Nightmare to Remember
Take Away My Pain
The Glass Prison
In The Presence Of Enemies, Pt. 2
Stream Of Consciousness (instrumental)
Pull Me Under
A Change of Seasons
The first 12 songs are in sandwich which starts with part 1 and ends with part 2 of the epic song "In the Presence of Enemies". I think the part 1 is perfect song to start with (nothing wrong with ANTR though!! just saw them live starting with that monster song and it did very well)
Then the party continues when they come back at stage and play orgasmic instrumental (Stream of Consciousness) and then straight away with their hit from the album "Images and Words": Pull Me Under.
26 sept. 2009, 8h40m par Twilight_AmandaFri 25 Sep – Progressive Nation 2009
Opeth. And Dream Theater. In the same show. Awesome!
That's what I thought when we drove down to Stockholm for this great event. But it didn't get just that awesome. But I'm skipping ahead.
Unexpect and Bigelf.
We came in right in the middle of Unexpect's set, but from what I heard, I can't say we missed out on that much. The music was a bit too over the top for me, personally. It had a very nightmarish mood, that was kinda cool. But it just wasn't my thing. And unfortunately, that's all I can say about them.
The Imperial March from Star Wars starts to roar out over the audience. Bigelf. Without a doubt the coolest band to enter the stage that night. They all looked like Cousin Itt! (I say that in all well meaning. I have a soft spot for long-haired men.) Their music was a bit Deep Purple-sounding at times, quite classic and cool. During one song, Blackball I think, Mike Portnoy hijacked the drums. Love that man, very inspiring. ^^

Merriweather Post Pavilion: Progressive Nation
Zappa Plays Zappa
Scale the Summit
Sadly, both Pain of Salvation and Beardfish were forced to pull out of the tour when they lost funding. I'm a long time, big fan of POS and it was a massive downer to spend 58 bucks a pop for tickets and not get to see the one band I bought them for. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised by the Zappa cover band. They were nothing short of phenomenal. I knew none of the songs and am not very familiar with Frank Zappa's music, but the variety and incredible virtuosity of all the performers, combined with near flawless execution and a smooth, classy stage presence made the show worth it.
This was my 3rd time seeing DT, so I was considerably less excited. They played a pretty decent show. Didn't seem a whole lot different from the PN 07 or 08, except for the new songs. The setlist was something like this (not 100% sure, it was over a month ago):
A Nightmare to Remember

26 jui. 2008, 18h39m par ArmageddonManBueno, este es mi primer intento de review. El DVD/triple-CD en vivo SCORE, grabado en vivo en NY en el final de la gira de presentación de Octavarium, la misma que trajo a DT a Argentina por primera vez.
El tracklist tiene, en su mayoría, temas de Octavarium, sin embargo, entre un par de canciones del disco (The Root of All Evil y la U2era I Walk Beside You) y otro (Sacrificed Sons, Octavarium, y el agregado de Metropolis, del disco Images and Words) los Dream recorren temas de su historia, desde sus comienzos con el nombre Majesty (Another Won) pasando por su etapa con el vocalista Charlie Dominici en When Dream And Day Unite (1989) con una terrible interpretación de Afterlife, (diría que mejor que las versiones de When Dream And Day Unite & When Dream and Day Reunite) siguiendo con Images and Words, (1992 - Under a Glass Moon) Awake, (1994 - Innocence Faded) un inédito de las épocas con el tecladista Derek Sherinian, (1996 - Raise the Knife) y finalizando la primera parte…
