Cool name and cover. Not sure if I will buy. Will definitely give it a listen.

.... but it's better than simply "Live in London" "Live at the Marquee" or "Live at Luna Park" (I give L@B a pass)

No doubt.

I'll but this no doubt because even though I have Lives Scenes from New York I'd like to have MM's version as well.
I'd have been more interested in this if they would've changed up the performances more (like they did with several songs from IaW on the 2017 tour) instead of pretty much playing everything as it is on the album (notwithstanding MM's drum solo outro to FF and other small details). I too will purchase this, but I doubt the second set will get much of an airing from me.
 
 
I'd have preferred more DoT songs but all in all the DVD will be great.
That's what I was thinking too, they only played 6 tracks from the new album. Then I realized BTFW only has 5 songs from DT12 (FAS technically doesn't count as it's just a tape intro), but that one had a much more varied setlist than the last tour.
That's what happens when you dedicate half of the show to playing a full older album, in addition to promoting your latest album. From the beginning, I had wished they would've spent the first half of 2019 focused just on d/t with a setlist that included a variety of other tracks, and then come back with a revised setlist focused on SFaM but still including a couple d/t tracks and other older songs, but obviously that's not what happened. It is what it is.
As a basic rule, if you hate it, you must solely blame Portnoy. If it's good, then you must downplay MP's contribution to the band as not being important anyway, or claim he's just lying. It's the DTF way.

Iím going to buy this absolutely no question but itís probably the first DT release that Iím not at all excited about.  Itís probably because I was at one of the London shows and it was the first DT show I didnít enjoy. James sounded awful, the crowd was dead and just a really disappointing night.  I assume the dvd was shot on the 2nd night so hopefully JLB was better or they can use some trickery to make it sound better.  Hopefully the crowd was more up for it too knowing they were recording.

I was there the 2nd night and James nailed it!  I saw the show 4x and this was the best one!  I wished there was more standing, but the woman next to me was
so stoked, I had a blast!

That makes me feel a bit better about it. Hopefully it comes out well.

Nov 27! can't wait, love the cover and looking forward to watching the performance again, the show was fantastic and I even met the guys before the show. Really glad I took that plunge.

This is a really good mix. Loving those toms. I'd say it's up there with Budokan.

Mix sounds good, not a big fan of the snare sound.
James' voice sounds like 90% retouched though.

I think it sounded great! Just how I remember it, except for the little differences with the guitar..it's too exciting when you're there to catch everything. That guitar tone is so  :hefdaddy

I hope we get a video as well, to see the video production.

Really curious to hear more vocally demanding songs as well, even on PBD the vocal touch-ups are more than evident.

It was mixed by Jimmy T.  John said he was mixing it during his FB live chat with MP and DLR.

Really, the mix sounds good to me, but the drums make me think...

For a long time most of us complained about the SUPER strange snare on DT12, just omitted too much of Mike's playing cause it was too low.

Then the guy goes and tunes it really well for the album DOT! But live, it seems like it doesn't have enough depth to me. It's like he really wanted to get a really high snare sound, to turn away from that low sound he was so bashed for. You could tell it from the YT videos of the tour already.

About the toms, the thing that is probably bothering you guys is the floor toms, that he chose the ones without the bottom heads. Maybe it wasn't that easy to fit them on the overall sound.

But in general I thought this mix we just listened to on PBD was an evolution! I feel Jimmy T has a lot more to offer to the band in terms of sound  :metal

My suspicion is crowd shots will be taken from the first night, while the band shots will be from the second. Various reasons for thinking this, mostly related to camera positions and security which I'd explain further but it's lunchtime and I'm hungry.

Well, as always, people interpret differently. I thought he sounded poor on the second night, as well as on the first night. On the plus side, certainly sounds like his vocals have been properly tinkered with on Pale Blue Dot.

Well, that was....something. Mike's floor toms sounded like wet blankets to me. The stars of this performance were definitely Jordan and JP, but LaBrie wasn't bad either.

Mix of shots from both nights there. The track camera was only present on the second night, whereas the on-stage up and down cameras were only there on the first night.

Just in case anyone's interested :lol

It doesn't sound like live. Disappoting. So robotic, so unnatural. And I don't even mention sitting crowd in a live DVD with a song like PBD.

as it should be. Could have been more robotic though IMHO. (but that's just me. I love clean music.) On another note, I didn't expect PBD to be chosen as the first piece from the live album. (I like that they did it though.)
