Editorial Reviews

Filmed at Tokyo s famous Budokan Hall in April 2004, this Blu-ray captures Dream Theater on the tour in support of their 2003 album Train Of Thought . Most of the tracks from that album are included along with songs from right across their career. Dream Theater s musical virtuosity is renowned and their live performances are legendary and this show from Japan is undoubtedly one of their finest. Filmed in high definition and now released on Blu-ray for the first time this is undoubtedly Dream Theater at their very best. / Bonus Features: Riding The Train Of Thought Documentary / John Petrucci Guitar World / Jordan Rudess Keyboard World / Mike Portnoy Drum Solo / Dream Theater Chronicles 2004 Tour Opening Video / Instrumedley Multiangle Bonus / Line-up: James LaBrie (vocals, percussion); John Myung (bass, stick); John Petrucci (guitar, vocals); Mike Portnoy (drums, vocals); Jordan Rudess (keyboards) / TRACK LISTING: 1) As I Am 2) This Dying Soul 3) Beyond This Life 4) Hollow Years 5) War Inside My Head 6) The Test That Stumped Them All 7) Endless Sacrifice 8) Instrumedley 9) Trial Of Tears 10) New Millennium 11) Keyboard Solo 12) Only A Matter Of Time 13) Goodnight Kiss 14) Solitary Shell 15) Stream Of Consciousness 16) Disappear 17) Pull Me Under 18) In The Name Of God

5.0 out of 5 stars Dream Theater is shock and awe! November 7, 2011
By xi
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I had the DVD version of this concert. After I read the reviews from two previous reviewers, I decided to buy the blu-ray version. I have nothing to add. I would beg Dream Theater to upgrade all their previous DVDs to blu-ray. I will buy them all. I just went to their "A Dramatic Turn of Events" concert down here in Houston, TX. I hope they will issue a blu-ray disk for that tour too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible work of remastering...two thumbs up!!! October 21, 2011
By Al
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
All the flaws that were present in the original DVD release (I had two copies) were completely removed in this BD version, worth every single penny the upgrade. If you are a DT fan, please do yourself the favor of getting this jewel, it may not be the best concert from them from the performance, or musicaly talking, some may argue about the James performance (after some incident with seafood while vacationing in Cuba, and his vocal cords condition) but it is with no doubts, the best concert they have ever filmed technically talking...

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest Dream Theater concert on Blu-ray July 28, 2012
Dream Theater 'Live at Budokan' is one of a handful of concert DVDs that continues to wow me completely. On 5 October, 2004 at the peak of their abilities, Dream Theater played at the Budokan, Japan. Although eight years ago and since then they have had other concert DVDs like the majestic 'Score', this is their landmark concert High Definition DVD. This review highlights why I repurchased 'Live at Budokan' on Blu-ray.

I love watching live music and have been fortunate enough to see Dream Theater play in Brisbane, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand. This Blu-ray is possibly as good as it gets other than being at their concerts. Indeed some may say it's better. At least in the comfort of your home you can manage the volume to what suits you plus have close-up views that only binoculars could achieve. (I make this comment as the Auckland concert was excessively loud and at times there was possible distortion.)

Back to this Blu-ray which is most beautifully crafted and meets all my requirements for a perfect concert. i.e. great sound, crystal clear visuals, a massive selection from their discography plus additional long instrumental breaks with the camera following the person playing the solo. (It always frustrates me when the drummer plays a brilliant fill and the camera man zooms on the vocalist who is not even singing. This fortunately doesn't happen on this recording because Mike Portnoy, the drummer, and John Petrucci, the guitarist produce it.) Clearly Dream Theater projected their creative and hard-working ethic to the production values of this Blu-ray. The original recording had been carefully thought through, even to the placing of the cameras for excellent closeups for each member.

The original DVD was previously unsurpassed in sound and video quality.

I have the DVD version of this concert. Every time I watch it, I kept telling myself that this is the best DVD concert. 10 out of 10. But after watching the bluray version, I realized that I was wrong. On a scale of 1 to 10, the DVD was -1 and the bluray was a 12. I heard music from the bluray that I have never heard before (either it wasn't there before or I am a schizophrenic). I could hear every single instrument AND james' vocals at the same time and they were ALL crisp clear (and I am only using a 2 Wharfedale front speakers; bluray audio set to PCM 2.0). But still. Awesome. If my mouth wasn't dry when I was watching it, I would have been drooling. DT fans must buy this. If you are short on money, starve for 3 days, and then buy this (it's worth it). All music lovers, you must buy this also (starve is you need to).

I have a bunch of concert blurays (Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, etc. and this is by far THE BEST BLURAY CONCERT I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED.

If you have a Bluray player and are a DT fan then this is surely a must have. I had the original DVD version and this one is night and day better quality. The cameras they used at the show were phenomenal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Progressive Metal Awesome! December 29, 2011

Dream Theater has mastered the art of Progressive Metal better than any other band. They are the band to follow. Live at Budokan is their best work. Sit back and enjoy the masterpiece.

I am upgrading my dvd collection to Bluray as they are available and this wasn't going to be an exception specially being Dream theater one of my favorites band, this master does not only have DTS upgrade from 5.1 but it also has a better clean and equalization i have ever heard on a dvd to bluray remaster, the bass of myung is clean in the whole concert you can hear it perfectly in every song, the DTS audio on the efects especially on the keyboards is perfect if you are a real DMT fan you should get this Bluray and if you dont have a blu-equipment you should get one and a good home theater to hear this concert love it.
