In the end, the keyboards completely destroy the quality of this live album. It is a not bad live album, but could be times better. Hopefully a new live dvd will be recorded soon. First, though, let me talk about what there is to like about Live at the Edge of Forever.
As I said before, the musicianship is phenomenal, and when you're dealing with songs as intricate and fast-paced as SYMPHONY X's, pulling that off in a live setting is a real accomplishment. Not only can he match ROMEO note for note during one of their lightning-fast duets, he also plays some surprisingly touching slower sections that are among the greatest highlights of the album: the opening of "The Fallen/Transcendence - Symphony X - Live On The Edge Of Forever War", parts of "The Death of Balance," the solo in "Through the Looking Glass," and throughout "The Divine Wings of Tragedy.
Nowhere does this show more than on "Egypt. Accordingly, I will now discuss the things that went wrong with this CD. First, and most glaringly, the sound quality throughout the whole thing was atrocious. Sometimes the audience was louder than the band--except at the times when ALLEN was Fallen/Transcendence - Symphony X - Live On The Edge Of Forever trying to involve the audience during the song, and then they couldn't be heard at all. One problem may have been the fact that they tried to mesh performances on different dates in different venues into one CD and it was a failed experiment.
I have a feeling a fan bootleg would have offered, at the very least, a more consistent mix than this--the quality problems were so distracting that I had to split the two discs onto two different nights in order to do this review. The second problem is--this band's way of interacting with the audience might be great if you're actually there in the venue, but it's irritating as heck for somebody listening to a CD.
They should have had one night where they just told the audience that they were recording a live album, and played straight through. Here are some other less important suggestions I would have for them. First, they need a second keyboardist on tours if they're really intent on reproducing the lush orchestrations of things like V. The songs from that album were easily the greatest disappointment for me, and soured my mood towards the whole disc to a point where it never recovered.
The new keyboardist could just handle all of the routine or sampled stuff, and leave the real solos and improvising to PINNELLA--who's great, but just needs some help because he can't do it all at once. And third, ROMEO always needs to keep an eye on exactly how long he takes the spotlight or he risks coming off as self-indulgent. This is probably more of a 2. There's definitely some promise here, but it just wasn't enough even for this fan of the band.
Thanks God! I'm blessed The Beatles - Many Years From Now You Still Need Us (DVD) the wide range of music taste that I can digest so that I have varied moods due to variety of music I listen to.
What I have learned so far is this: Those who love progressive metal, usually hate "jazz" related music and vice versa. Fallen/Transcendence - Symphony X - Live On The Edge Of Forever does not apply to me. I love both kinds of music. To me these two kinds complement one another. There are times when I want to enjoy jazz-rock and there are times when I want to enjoy progressive metal. Altogether with Dream Theater, I also love Symphony X with the kind of music similar between the two.
