From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars Smoke & Mirrors contains all the elements of the previous Arena DVD Caught in the Act. Great songs performed by one of the worlds great prog bands, Excellent sound and vision, with some great camera work, and an enthusiastic involved crowd. Strangely only four songs from the Peppers Ghost album are included, but what songs they are, and one of them Bedlam Fayre is a fantastic set opener. If you don't know Arena's music this is an ideal place to start. It contains nearly all their best known material. As an extra to the main concert from Poland, is footage from Holland containing six more live versions of classics. and OK they are all on the main gig but hey who cares when its this good.

Faultless- one of the best ever live DVDs
