The same cannot be said for this release, and I was pretty disappointed as a result. As a drummer, I obviously pay more attention to the recording of the drums than anything else - and that is where this recording falls flat. The toms do not sound punchy, and the bass drum is not "commanding." The cymbals don't punctuate the music quite like I wanted them to. On top of that, the guitar sounds isolated and not blended well with the rest of the mix. The keys are very quiet, which makes parts of songs that feature the keyboard sound off.
That being said, the performances are outstanding, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the band with Mangini as their newest addition. The video quality is top-notch, and they did a good job in the editing room of showing specific members of the band during parts of songs where they are features. Dream Theater has been my favorite band for a long time, and their awesomeness overcomes the sound issues to still make this a solid and enjoyable release.
They might be extras simply because the quality is not as good as the main concert, but that was the frustrating part, there is no way (or at least obvious way) to play them as a whole... The bonus song returns to the main menu and you have to manually select the next one to play...
