    I just found out about When Dream and Day Reunite from Dream Theater. As i stated in the other DT thread, so i looked on youtube for some badass videos from back in the day, then i found out about this.

    Friggin Charlie Dominici and Derek Sherenian are playing with the other guys.

    Crap! I need this.. this is the first DT disc i've wanted to buy since 2001!

    Yeah I bought that DVD awhile ago. Lent it to a friend, along with Budokan and haven't seen either one since..

    I'm not a huge WDADU fan but that dvd was pretty kick ass.

    The only downer about 'Reunite' for me is that Labrie really struggles to hit the notes that Charlie had no problem with back in the day. He had to change a lot of the vocal melodies around, and always has on those songs. Of course, based on the encore, Charlie might not be able to hit those notes anymore either.

    But then, I'm a real fan of WDADU and feel that it is incredibly underrated. It's the only DT album where the keys and guitar are truly balanced, and where you can actually distinguish Myung in the mix thruout.

    It just has a special vibe to it for me, they were in a place then that they never really came back to. i love that sound.

    :agreed:

    As cool as it is that they became sort of a "prog Metallica" from Images & Words on, WDADU has a cleaner, avant-garde vibe that they lost after that.

    WDADU struck me as sort of what Rush might have become if they hadn't taken that left turn into pop songwriting in the early '80s.

    Yeah, it makes me wish that Dominici would've stuck around, or better yet, John Arch would've joined like originally intended.
