I definitely remember it being played, but I did not personally see it.  I started a "place your bets on the RCMH setlist" thread, and I remember betting that that would be the I&W song.  That was one of the few I got wrong.

I'm kinda surprised to see which posters didn't like seeing all of 6 D's at the RCMH show.  To me, that song represents DT going for their core sound (even though JR wrote a bunch of the melodies).

It's always been a mediocre work to me. I'll admit it's ambitious and I can respect that but in the entire 42 minutes I just don't find any of it really that interesting. I don't wanna call it bland but it seems like a suite of B and C grade musical components at best. Yeah the orchestra made me kinda like it but I still won't ever rate the entire thing more than a 6 or 7.

I disagree about it all being B or C grade, but I definitely agree about the overall product being a little underwhelming. I think there's plenty of A grade stuff in there, but there is enough of it that is less interesting to bring it down a little, plus I think the overall flow of it is not that great. Still an 8/10 song for me, but it could have been so much more.

I generally agree with the last few posts.  If I took all of Disc 2 as individual songs, none of them would come close to being among my favorite songs.  It is like a collection of good to very good songs, and since the cohesiveness of it all falls a bit short, I agree that it is a bit underwhelming as a whole.  The last half of "Goodnight Kiss" is still one of the best moments of the entire 6DOIT record, though. :coolio

And the first half, on the other hand, is one of the worst moments on the entire record. :p

I can't believe some of the people in this thread are complaining about having to hear SDOIT for the second time??? I haven't even heard it played once. It is one of their best songs (in my top 5), makes me cry  :(

The flip side is that you could live in Dallas, where DT only comes around every 3-5 years.  In that case, traveling to NYC and seeing the same 50 minute song you actually got to see the year before is kind of a drag.  Their rotating setlist thing is great a lot of the time, but it can also bite you in the ass sometimes.

Did anyone see take the time on the octavarium tour? on MP.com it says they played it a couple times before RCMH.
They played it a week earlier at the Paramount Theater show in Asbury Park NJ.  Listening to it right now.  Overall, IMO, that show had a really good setlist.

They played it in Boston. Although James didn't look great, he sounded awesome.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

No Mike on vocals.  It's all James.  For the most part, he sounds good.  But, it sounds like he just doesn't quite reach the high notes in the "If there's a pensive fear, ... Suppression that he feels must turn to hope" section.  A little flat.

On a random note, i was watching score the other day and interestingly during the intervals of octavarium i noticed a few members of the crowds raising their hands in the air with the number of the interval that MP says. Never realised before.

Score was such an amazing night, and an amazing party during the day as well!

Bump.

Since DT was fined with what, $30K for staying some extra minutes on stage wouldn't they be able to have said: "Oh, well... let's play three more songs"? Or they got charged $10K for the extra minute?

The way I understand it, the curfew was 11:00. They left the stage at 11:03. The fine was 10k per minute they went past curfew. So, wouldn't have been a good idea to stay on. ;)

I wish I could have seen it live, but I didn't know who DT was at the time, nor did my 13 year old self care at the time.

As for the CD, it's great to listen to, even if I find the sound quality lacking compared to other live releases. It just sounds too distant

It's 10k per minute to stay on that stage, so if they played 3 more songs they would have probably have had to pay nearly half a million with the length of their songs.  :lol

It definitely was a great show to be at, but I wasn't particularly fond of the setlist and the orchestra wasn't that great IMO. But hearing Octavarium live made me fall in love with the track.

Apparently, there are very few "union" halls left in the country.  NYC happens to have 2 of them with RCMH and MSG.  Even if bands want to play extra long, the financial ramifications typically keep them from doing so.

I love Score, might be my favorite live album by DT

but...

Ive always had a problem with the fact that the heavier side of the band is misrepresented, or at least any 7 string madness. The Test That Stumped Them All is the closest we got to that, but if I'm not mistaken, JP is not playing a 7 string on that song. Besides Train Of Thought songs, which I understand the entire album was essentially on Budokan, even HTF; why not at least one low end heavy song? Was it just the way the set list worked out and was just a coincidence?

This question had been bugging me the most FOREVER. I requested DTbootlegs on YouTube to upload it, and they did!! James was way flat the entire time, very disappointing considering how great some of his high stuff was that tour. Maybe it was better on another night...

I am listening to SDOIT off Score right now, and I am  :biggrin: because
1.  I was there as they played this song
2.  Because I remember that monumental moment during this song when the curtains rose and there beheld an orchestra

Combine this with the thought of seeing them at MSG in a few months, makes me want to join hands with those of you who were also there and just simply appreciate that magical night of pure musical euphoria



I think I was the only one who was kinda disappointed that they played Six Degrees at Score, they pretty much played it on Budokan.

Was actually thinking about putting on the entire second set on before, but I chose to listen to Beardfish instead.

Still might throw Score on, maybe just do the whole dang show.

I was at the Paramount Theater show. Front row in front of John Myung. I remember they played Take The Time second or third song into the first set.

Can I tell you me and a friend of mine were on mushrooms for that show? (not necessarily the best thing to do for a DT show, but it was fun)

I guess I put it into perspective like this....

"Score", I watch over and over at home, on planes, etc....  Budokan, I haven't watched more than 3 times since it came out.  Same with LSFNY.  "Score" is the be all end all off DT DVD's for me.
