The Good

The DVD portion of this release highlights a sold-out show from Tokyo, Japan. I was instantly amazed at the size of the groups following, and the fact that they knew every word of every song. The stage is well-lit, and the band is in perfect voice and tone. Watch out for the double-kick drums and driving keyboards on the chant worthy "Misplaced," because at the hyper-speed in which they come at you will stop you dead in your tracks. Tony Kakko's vocals on "Blinded No More" are both emotional and enduring. Beautiful keyboard playing and audience clapping lead you into "Full Moon..." The track builds as each new instrument is added to the mix.

Virtuoso guitar runs don't get much faster than on "Victoria's Secret." It's not about what you think. Get your mind out of the gutter! Off the top of my head I can't remember what the "8th Commandment" is, but if it were to apply to Sonata Arctica, it must be `thou must shred to a manic drum beat.' Kakko is joined by his fellow band mates (as well as the audience) for a harmonic chorus. Subtle arpeggio guitars set a mellow mood on "Replica." The repetitive melodic chorus has one of those hooks that can't be denied.

Dual guitar runs command "Black Sheep's" instrumental breaks, and fire-off with wind abandon during the solo. Sonata Arctica closes their set with the seven minute epic "The Cage..." It has everything you could ask for in a high-energy power metal number. For time purposes, five songs from the DVD had to be cut for the bonus CD. Included as bonuses on the DVD are a documentary of the tour (complete with subtitles), and a biography and discography for the band.

The Bad

The cursive writing on all of the print material was a little heard to read.

This is the greatest freaking thing that I own! I'm not exaggerating. Sonata Arctica have been my favorite band for years now... But I cannot tell you how much I anticipated this DVD release. (Years before the concept was even in motion) But the bottom line is.. I would have been happy with Marco farting on a snare drum for all I cared.. I just wanted some legit footage of them in concert. So naturally I pre-ordered this product LONG before it was released. To my great surprise it was not only obviously carrying sonata's seal of approval in quality.. but it is down right the best concert I've ever seen. The sound is UNBELIEVABLE.. Tony Kakko's vocals are beyond Epic. Janni and Henrik are on the ball like never imagined. All in all it is absolute brilliance at it's best. I've watched it about 10 times since it came in... (It's been here for 3 days now. haha).

Not to mention.. The boys have really released one hell of a generous offer here. Not only do they have the greatest DVD Concert video I've EVER had the privilage to see... But they also included the whole concert on an audio CD as well.. FOR FREE! Hell.. Brings me back to when I bought iron maiden's rockin in rio CD... just to buy the DVD about 6 months later. Right on! All I can say is.. If you haven't been a die hard sonata arctica fan for years.. You should seriously start catching up right now. They are clearly the all around best band on the planet and it's about time they started getting the recognition they so desperately deserved.

I'm happy to finally say that since they toured the states recently I had the epic privilage of seeing them in concert. My only complaint was that I couldn't see that amazing show every week. The DVD certainly took care of that. Like I said..

It is impossible to stay sad, apathetic or lethargic while listening to Sonata Arctica. Their music is EXHILARATING! Their latest studio cd, 'Reckoning Night' is a perfect album - a masterpiece of extremely high-energy power metal, stunning keyboards, and emotionally evocative vocals.

All of that is displayed to perfection in their live show. Yes, they actually did tour the US in fall 2006, and I was one of the lucky ones to see them in a small club in Texas. We met the band backstage - very nice guys! And Tony has the best voice in metal! He SINGS! Wow, such a rarity these days!

This dvd captures the energy and totally does the band justice, as they are in their element in a large venue. You'll see dualing guitar and keyboards and rabid fans, and experience the crystal clarity of Tony's voice and the intensely high-energy yet achingly beautiful music. They take you higher, then higher, and when you think you can go no higher, they take you higher still. It's hard to describe and you won't understand until you experience their music.

For new fans, this is a great way to be introduced to one of the very best bands around today. For existing bands, this is a MUST. There are no negatives. It's a perfect live show.

This is a greatest hits package performed entirely in concert to a crowd of rabid Tokyo fans. It chronicles the band's very best songs from their debut album to their latest good Reckoning Night effort. It is a great treat for fans and a decent introduction to people who aren't familiar with the band. Sonata Arctica plays a style of happy metal, which unlike the rest of this particular genre, it isn't cheesy and doesn't embarrass itself. For one thing, there's a high degree of musicianship in the material and they also know how to craft powerful songs that you'll remember for a long time. The CD contains 15 songs, while the DVD comes with 20, as well as a short bonus featurette. It features the band on their road to Japan, from their arrival at the airport to their visits to some Japanese clubs, all while being silly and drunk. The good Metal life, indeed...
