"Score" is a 3 CD/2 DVD combination by progressive metal band Dream Theater. It is a live album, recorded on April 1, 2006 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. This is the final concert of their 20th Anniversary Tour, labeled "A Very Special Evening with Dream Theater". The entire second half of the concert features a complete symphonic orchestra, dubbed "The Octavarium Orchestra", conducted by Jamshied Sharifi.

The album was released on August 29, 2006 and contains the entire concert setlist, including the encore. A condensed version of the concert was aired on VH1 Classic on August 25, 2006, 4 days before the release of the album and DVD.

The name of the album comes from the word "score", meaning the number twenty. It was chosen in order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Dream Theater. "Score" could also mean a conductor's musical score, parts of which are used on the packaging imagery. Given "Octavarium"'s references to the numbers five and eight, it is interesting to note that at the time of "Score's" release, Dream Theater had, in their discography, five live albums and eight studio albums.

Two of the songs recorded on this album were previously unreleased: "Another Won", a song written by the band when they were still named Majesty, and "Raise The Knife", a song left off of "Falling Into Infinity".

In Australia, the 3 CD boxset was released on September 2, 2006.

On October 15th, 2006, Score was certified platinum by the RIAA.

RIAA Certifications

These statistics were compiled from the RIAA certification online database.cite web |url= |publisher= Recording Industry Association of America |title= Gold and Platinum database |accessdate= 2008-01-31] They only apply to the DVD.

*"Gold" - October 11 2006
*"Platinum" - October 11 2006


*The first and second setlists contain 8 and 5 songs respectively ("" was played as an encore, instead of being part of the setlist), which fits the common uses of 8 and 5 in the band's album "Octavarium".
*The second set has another occurrence of 8 and 5 - the epic "Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence" has 8 parts, and then 5 more songs (counting the encore) are played with the orchestra, making 13 total.
*Also, 5 of the 8 songs from "Octavarium" appear in the entire setlist.
*There are various numbers on Mike Portnoy's kit throughout the DVD. These refer to a mysterious number system found in the TV show Lost.
*"Train of Thought" ends with the song "In the Name of God," and the next studio album, "Octavarium", starts with "The Root of All Evil". This is the same with Dream Theater's albums "Live at Budokan" and "Score" - "Live at Budokan" ends with "In the Name of God" and "Score" starts with "The Root of All Evil". (On the CD version of "Score", a clip from "In the Name of God" is heard playing over the PA system before the band starts playing)
*During the performance of "Under a Glass Moon", John Petrucci's guitar rig mysteriously shut down leaving the song to continue with no guitar until around the end of the first chorus. It was later discovered that the rig failure was due to a camera-man being on stage and accidentally stepping on a switch that immediately silences Petrucci's entire guitar rig. In the Live DVD you can see Petrucci fiddle with his Pedalboard and then walk to the back of his cabinets. At this time the video focuses on the remaining 4 members of DT until Petrucci gets his rig working again. Subsequently, before the release of the CD and DVD, Petrucci recorded the missing guitar parts in a studio as to keep the flow of the show and song moving.
*During "Under a Glass Moon," the band plays the first part of the circus march.
*Before the show actually started, the title theme from "A Clockwork Orange" played over the sound system. For the most part, this happened at every tour stop in the Octavarium Tour. The theme would play and it would segue into the ending of "In the Name of God". The theme does not appear in the CD or DVD in any way, most likely due to the fact that if the intro music from "A Clockwork Orange" was included on the DVD release the composer of the theme, Wendy Carlos would be owed both performance and mechanical royalties as the composer of the music.
