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...

Bluray disc of the concert: - excellent. Picture quality and sound reproduction are superb. Excellently capture the feeling of a DT concert.
DVD disc of the concert: - Great. especially if you find yourself stuck without a bluray (one of our laptops / parents house etc...)
DVD disc of extras: - V. Good. In my opinion there is some filler here but not enough to detract from a great disc.
3 CDs of the concert: - superb audio quality. Went straight onto my old iPod classic.
Picture booklet: - exceptional. Calling this a booklet is to do it a disservice. The pages are printed both sides with excellent quality full page photographs. These photographs are brilliantly taken and help encapsulate the energy commitment and humour required to be arguably the best group of musicians on the planet.
Not a bad element to this edition with each piece fulfilling a purpose admirably. All in all an excellent package giving great value for the money.
I have come to the conclusion they are by far my favourite band now. There's something about the sincerity in the lyrics, their personas and the mind blowing talent that just gets me every time. I literally sat watching the bluray with a big smile that kept appearing on my face!
And now to Mr. Mangini...
Ever since I saw that drum solo on Youtube of him at a Vai gig, I absolutely LOVED him! He is SO good, any musician worth their salt would appreciate what this guy is capable of. When I saw the auditions happening for him to be in Dream Theater, I got so excited! I kept searching for more news all the time and the dream came true!!
His drum solo on this is even better than the Youtube one. He truly is world class. I would say the best drummer in the world. There are some drum parts that Portnoy would play of their old songs he just wipes the floor with, like it's second nature to him. I could watch it a thousand times and not get bored. Just incredible!! sometimes playing with just one hand.
All the other members are superb, Rudess is just a powerhouse.
BUY IT! BUY IT NOW!!!
If you liked ADTOE as a album + some quality re-cuts of older tracks this is for you.
Get it, get it on the largest screen you can find with the best sound system, turn it up and annoy the neighbours as no-one else will understand you (execpt me of course)
Anyway, the performance - all near three hours of it - and musicianship are as flawless and breathtaking as you expect from Dream Theater, the sound is great, as is the picture for the most part, albeit let down by some of the static cameras dotted around the instruments which have a tendency to break up from time to time. The editing is a bit manic at times, flitting from angle to angle. Still, at least you get to see what's being played, not just close ups on the player's faces all the time.
