Most of the tracks from that album are included along with songs from right across their career.

Dream Theater: Live At Budokan Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080i "live" transfer, Dream Theater: Live At Budokan arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Eagle Rock Entertainment.

Filmed in high-definition in 2004, the show looks terrific on Blu-ray. Close-ups, for example, are remarkably detailed even when the stage lights are extremely bright (see screencaptures #1 and 15). Colors are vivid and stable, and there are absolutely no shadow issues whatsoever. Motion-judder is also never a serious issue of concern (I did not see even tiny traces of motion blur). What impressed me the most, however, was the terrific camerawork. The band is followed by multiple cameras that offer an enormous amount of outstanding looks at the musicians and the enthusiastic audience in the venue. Obviously, this isn't the first time a live show has benefited from excellent camerawork, but considering the complex nature of the music Dream Theater are known for, the close-ups are indeed very well timed and then integrated with the rest of the footage. Finally, there are no compression issues or other specific transfer-related anomalies to report in this review. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-raty disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Dream Theater: Live At Budokan Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, LPCM 2.0. and Dolby Digital 5.1. For the record, I opted for the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track and later on did a few random comparisons with the other two tracks for the purpose of this review.

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track has excellent depth and raw fidelity. The vocals and guitars are well separated, never dropping or completely disappearing, and the crowd noise kept in check. The drums are prominent but never overpowering. The keyboards sound as rich and sharp as the guitars (check out "Disappear"). I was particularly impressed by the wonderful crisp and well rounded sound during the keyboard solo. Simply terrific stuff. Lastly, there are absolutely no audio drops or sync issues to report in this review.

The LPCM 2.0 track isn't bad at all, but for some strange reason the keyboards have a tendency to stick out quite a bit. The guitars, however, sound outstanding (check out the guitar entry in "Goodnight Kiss"). The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 is without a shadow of a doubt the best option, though.
