5 stars Marillion = Pionners of neo prog - No ,, It's not true about Marillion ( perfect album at wrong timing ) Why ????????? By carying the torch of prog in 1983 , Marillion & few other bands from the 70's was able to give some hope to proggers , by creating a kind of trust that progressive rock was created to carry on . the impact of the SCRIPT..... wasn't ,in my humble opinion , for the 80's . in fact it was for now . i'm a 54years old pilot , crazy about progressive music in general , but , i have nothing against bands contaminated by new wave , running on empty , at that time . i was nearly unsatisfied by approximatly 80% of so called prog in the 80's . in fact btn 1982 -- 1989 there was no productivity at all for the major bands , namely , ( floyd - separeted ) Yes , E.L.P , Genesis , Tull , etc..... this diversion caused by many reasons ,, fr ex , market necessities of that period , major changes in label companies , the new wave & punk influence created in england ( without exportation to Europe & America) , all these facts gave to new born bands such as Marillion , the credit of holding the torch of progressive up till now . i had the chance twice in London , once in copenhagen , once in hamburg , to witness these giants in action ( performing ) Surely not Script ... and , to be honest in this review regarding the DVD, it took me 1012 flights to Europe as a pilot , visiting 112 cities of Europe & the Middle East to discover what Marillion did back in 1983 . They said no to the status quo of that period , we want to carry a humble message to the next generations of prog , by carying this torch . So , ,,,,, they did with some few others. by trespassing the red line created by the market needs , Jester was the big boooom for all proggers around the world , and , the impact created at that time still have the same effect up till now . for bands like Marillion , decisions in this matter was really challenging , fighting for surviving in the middle of a kaos where everything real is unreal , and for real proggers , it's no more a battle ,it's war ......... So , to tell the truth , i was really opset by 80% by so called prog releases btn 83 - 89 . Jester with few other releases came as a relief that time . I'm proud to be a Lebanese progger , folwng every single detail in that matter , and the good point is , that i use to have both videos ( Jester & Brave ) video VHS versions , but now , i do have both on DVD it's really amazing after a long hold to get what yu really always wanted . as a matter of fact , i'm the witness that gives the credit in holding that torch of prog to bands like Marillion , and , i believe that the truth lives in each one of yu dear friends )))))))))))) thanking GOD & Marillion for this precious gift , so , enjoy proggers the good team work .

N.B == DVD essential for any progressive rock collection . Tracking tracks of rock .
