5.0 out of 5 stars Unparalleled Live Performance May 29, 2001
The die-hard Dream Theater fan knows that the ultimate would have been to attend the famous Roseland show. After reading the reviews and seeing the set list we could only imagine what it must have been like to have been there. Well, imagine no longer. This release puts you there, in the Roseland Ballroom on August 30, 2000. Often a live performance cannot capture the vital force of a show and translate it to the screen. What we've here is a magical conveyance of what really went down that evening. (Proof positive: Transition from Regression to the 1928 Overture. The place absolutely detonates). The band is extremely unyielding in their deliverance of the Metropolis Part 2 set. It is incredible to watch (and hear) the story from beginning to end.
The extras that are found on the DVD prove that the band left nothing in the tank that night. (After 3+ hours, A Change of Seasons!) Further, being afforded the opportunity to mingle outside the venue before the show with the fans, getting to witness the set up for this phenomenal presentation and getting off-stage during the show is pure luxury.
For the music purist, this reveals just what Dream Theater is all about. Whatever your preference, keyboards/guitar/bass/percussion, this is an extraordinary assemblage of great musicians. If you are a Dream Theater fan, you cannot be without this enchanted evening of music and power. If you are a music traditionalist, indulge yourself with this astonishing performance. Having been nurtured by the likes of (Tales) Yes, (The Lamb) Genesis, (2112/Hemispheres) Rush, UK, ELP, Kansas, Marillion, The Dregs and Pink Floyd, I will tell you this band is full on. The disintegrating force, the majestic ascensions and the complex changes are absolutely inspiring.
Cost of a DVD player - $200.00. Cost of the Metropolis 2000: Scenes from New York - $20.00. Attending the Roseland show over and over, priceless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to Dream Theater June 2, 2001
I'd never heard DT before.Based on some reviews I'd read here at Amazon I thought I'd give them a try.This is a great band.Each musician is technically expert at their instrument.But it doesn't stop there. They play with intensity and emotion.I've seen lots of good musicians,Yes,Gentle Giant,Dixie Dregs,Return To Forever,Pat Metheny Group.DT compares very well to these groups.Thanks,Mr. Video Man, for focusing on individuals as they soloed.The video never got in the way of the sound and the sound is excellent.It saddens me a bit to think that most people will never hear this group of musicians because most radio stations are content with playing 3 chord- 4/4 time rock background music.If you like your music with some depth and variety it would be in your best interest to purchase this DVD.Listen to it with someone who also appreciates good music.Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dream Theater does it again March 15, 2001
By Rodrigo
If I were to name the top Progressive Rock bands in the world, I could have thought of Dream Theater as one of the best, followed closely by Queensryche in their good times, and the master of all, Pink Floyd. As far as the group in question, DT is currently kicking hard with their last CD, "Scenes from a memory". The disk, a concept album, has a story about a murder, viewed from several angles, throughout the album. Storyline is quite interesting, music is amazing, and vocals are terrific!. Here you see 5 masters of their instruments, playing at top notch, working in a unison not regularly seen, at blazing speeds, and always keeping consistency and stability. As a studio album, it makes me fly every single time I hear a live set? WOW, WOW, WOW!! I know that sounds too little a description, but, when there are no words to describe the amazement, it's the only thing that I could write! As a fan of high quality music, I find DT to be one of those few groups who actually do master their music. As a rock fan, damn, this guys kick some serious booty! If you fall into any of the 2 cathegories, buy this DVD! DT will not turn you down. The image quality and sound is truly amazing, worth the piece of art that the album represents. If you can, you should also try to buy the actual CD "Scenes", as it is considered by most Prog Rock fans a definite MUST HAVE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing. April 28, 2001
Dream Theater's concept album Scenes From A Memory is jaw-dropping on CD, but one gains a whole new level of appreciation for the work when one sees it performed. I mean, Dream Theater plays some really complex stuff here, and it's awesome to watch. "The Dance of Eternity" is insane, and the instrumental section of "Beyond this Life" has some really tough harmonization and unison lines. John Myung's dexterous bass playing is especially incredible to see because it's sometimes difficult to hear him in the mix on the CD. Jordan Rudess is truly a god among keyboardists, and I don't doubt that in a few years we'll regard him with the same deference as legends like Rick Wakeman and Keith Emerson. It's almost uncanny how easily he plays everything. What's also interesting about him is that he doesn't use racks of keyboards; he controls everything from just one, and switches between sounds with a pedal. Very cool. For much of the show, I just sat there with my jaw constantly hitting the floor thinking, "How the freakin' heck do they do that?"
The band puts on an incredible show. The band usually has a sort of calm stage presence, but here they're gushing energy. LaBrie's vocals never miss their mark, and in some ways his performance is better here than on the CD. I hadn't realized he had this much live power (let's not forget that he's an operatically trained vocalist, too). The band recreates SFAM's story using images on the big screens, which is good for those who didn't quite grasp the plot. (I understood the story, but it was nice to finally see what the breaking glass was on "Finally Free.") The band also brings in the hypnotherapist, the gospel choir for "The Spirit Carries On," and Theresa Thomason to sing Victoria's lines on that same song.
