5.0 out of 5 stars Great to have Lamb back!, March 7 2014
I was a bit late to the party in buying this album 9 years after its release. But I was not disappointed. I had for many years happy memories of grooving to 1970s Lamb on worn-out vinyl LPs, especially the earliest Lamb (1973) and Lamb II. Regardless of the subject matter, I consider Lamb (1973) among my favorite rock albums of the '70s. 1980s Lamb didn't quite work for me. The edge was gone; the music was too light and synthetic (synthesizers). Lamb had lost their rootsy appeal for me.

I have seen the documentary Metallica - Some Kind Of Monster (2004) and I understand the background and motivation… Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Bootleg, for completists, Jan. 22 2012
If you're a die-hard Dream Theater fan and are okay with poor bootleg quality video and audio, you will be satisfied with this basic concert video from Seoul, Korea 2000. The recording seems to have been done professionally, perhaps for a live TV broadcast in Korea? There is a large, annoying, and screen-damaging icon in the top right that says LIVE in black letters on white background. This box seems to be hiding a round logo (from a TV station?) that you can only see the outline of. Along the left side of the screen is a vertical white band, the sort of thing that would disappear if your screen is set to the old overscan mode.

Video quality is like that of an older… Read more
