Format: DVD
I just cannot rate this DVD highly. Art of Live is not an adequate depiction of Queensryche performing live, and on top of that, the DVD is marred with several other annoying flaws.

First of all, the band performs well here. It's too bad it was poorly recorded and mixed. The band is muddy here, and it just doesn't sound right. Just listen to the drums to see what I mean.

There's a good mix of songs on here; I find Tribe to be an excellent album. I just find it poorly represented here. This is just not what Queensryche sounds like live. I've seen them live, just this year even, and they sound much better then what is to be found here.

There's also the annoying issue of this whole thing is in black and white. It was clearly done to cover-up the poor lighting on the film. This is probably a result of using camcorders. This DVD is also not a full set. The songs just fade in and out from one another. A lot of great songs played on the Tribe tour aren't found here.

That said, there are a few good things here, like "Desert Dance", and "Breaking the Silence". There are also some neat extra bonuses here, but nothing earth-shattering.

Unless you can find this used, I don't recommended you purchase this. Go see Queensryche live for yourself, it's much better then what you'll find here.

Format: DVD
Art of Live was recorded by the band's crew on their 2003 tour in support of the album TRIBE (Sanctuary Records, 2003). It was originally shot in color, but according to vocalist Geoff Tate, the stage lights overpowered the equipment, resulting in moments where the color is blurred out. The band then elected to go with the old-style golden "black and white" scheme, for an "artsy" feel to the release.
1. The DVD features totally different songs than 2001's Live Evolution DVD release. It highlights the recent TRIBE album, and includes some interesting renditions of old songs, including an acoustic set.
2. This DVD has two selections performed by Queensryche AND Dream Theater (Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd and Won't Get Fooled Again by The Who), with all 10 band members on stage.
1. Obviously, the lack of color, in an age where DVD has so much capacity, is a major let down.
2. Advertised as a 5.1 mix, the band announced due to mastering "problems" they either had to delay the release, or eliminate the 5.1 audio. The elected for the latter.
3. The DVD is NOT, I repeat NOT widescreen.
4. Lack of easter eggs and hidden bonus features. The interviews are nice, but there could have been much more done.
Overall, the DVD is unique in some aspects (the tracks with Dream Theater, the acoustic set), but after the STELLAR quality of 2001's Live Evolution DVD release (Producer Mike Drumm did an excellent job), the quality of this "home made" release is rather dissapointing.
It's worth a look if you are a prog rock/metal fan, but if you can live without the two tracks with Dream Theater, you can live without this DVD. But quite simply, Art of Live is primarily for diehards, and unfortunately, Queensrÿche didn't invest the time and money into this release to make it stand out for them, either.

Format: DVD
I went to one of the concerts on this tour, and it was incredible. I was blown away by the power and intensity that Queensryche produced that night.

The DVD, quite simply, doesn't convey the true power of the concert. For example, during the concert, there was a screen at the back of the stage with videos that helped explain the song or had other cool effects (for one song, everything was silent while we watched a bomb's-eye view of a city - the city just kept getting larger and larger, then suddenly we were hit with a wall of sound as the band started playing when the bomb "impacted" - the effect was great, but the DVD doesn't capture this at all). The video is just the band playing, and as others have mentioned it's "fade in - play the song - fade to black" - all of the continuity of the concert was lost.

I have no problem with them doing it on a low budget, and I'm kind of glad that they showed it could be done that way. But they could've gotten the whole concert (and I don't necessarily mean all the songs, although that would've been nice, too - I mean, everything else that was going on onstage). And I really think it should've been in color. Reserve the black-and-white for artsy videos; I was looking for a memoir of the concert.

The Operation: Livecrime DVD made me feel like I missed an excellent concert. This DVD made me feel like I missed a mediocre concert - but the concert was GREAT; it's the DVD that's mediocre.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It's amazing. Queensryche is such a great band, and perhaps because of the limited budget this DVD kinda sucks. Tate's vocals are way too processed, it seems they turned on the 70's 'Dolby noise reduction' button and every single word he sings sounds squashed (too much compression maybe) and without dinamics. The drums sound amazing thouugh and I believe Rockenfield's Paiste Cymbals raise the bar even more with that wonderful crisp ride cymbal sound. The Guitars sound good too and bass is ok.
The show itself (in black and white - lame!) is good, I enjoyed it, but if only production would have been more careful this DVD would be a hit. Come on guys, enough with the slow-mo cameras and the matte finish! This is 2004. Oh well, I will probably sellthis DVD on eBay in a couple of weeks. The Dream Theater appearence at the end is awesome though.
