Los Angeles, CA
The audio is very well mixed and sounds incredible. John Myungs bass sound is super old school which really adds to the atmosphere.
Of course, since this is a Ytsejam production, the video is astounding. The show is very well directed with only a couple of missed queue’s (mostly John Myung solos).
Similar in design to the rest of the Ytsejam catalog. I’m not a huge fan of the font and color choices for this series but it is still better than nothing.
This DVD also features the following Special Bonus Features:
- Audio Commentary by Dream Theater
- WDADU 2004 rehearsal and soundcheck footage
- “I Can Remember When…” A 70 minute documentary from the Portnoy Archives looking back at the original WDADU album. A song by song recount told through live footage and interviews with the band circa 1988/1989.
The audio commentary is really informative. I don’t think I’ve ever heard John Myung speak so much. He went off on this tangent about how the band doesn’t seem to be as close as they used to and the music reflects their lack of “band-ness”. I found this very interesting and I totally agree with most of what he said.
