    do you have it?
    Yup. 'The Mirror' and 'Lie' are excellent jam tracks.. as is 'The Silent Man'.
    'Images and Words' is my favourite album though. 'Six Degree of Inner Turbulence', the new album is also very good.

    If you like Dream Theater it's worth looking into Liquid Tension Experiment too, if you haven't already. It's very similar. John Petrucci and Mike Portnoy team up with Tony Levin (King Crimson) and Jordan Rudess (Dregs, Dream Theater). It's basically DT without James LaBrie on vocals... or anyone for that matter. It's *very* good and well worth looking into.

    Acid Rain is the first track to download.

    :: suddenly feels quite jealous ::

    Did Petrucci do his Flight of the Bumblebee solo? That's a worthy download too. That was *amazing* to watch live.

    no.. he didn't

    they did a four hour set though... wow... it was so amazing.

    they performed lots of stuff from the Awake and Falling into Infinity.

    The Encore was 45 minutes long and AWESOME... they started with Home, which was so unbelieveable rocking the house... everyone was off the walls excited. it was such a great performance. Then they did "the spirit carries on" and everyone sang along. It was such an uplifting experienc.e. MIke Portnoy stood up on his drum throne and lit his liter in the beginning.. it was hilarious.

    ...i'll take you this summer to their performance when they return to the Beacon Theater... that's if you can get over into the states..hehe.
