4 stars Porcupine Tree - 'Arriving Somewhere.'

A superb DVD that has qualities in a few categories like production, presence, setlist and film that makes this a worthy purchase for just about anyone. Since this DVD presents itself after the 'Deadwing' album, you can expect to find that album to be most prominent on the DVD.but not by too much. Regardless, the songs put onto this release from 'Deadwing' were among the best of the album.

The sound is pretty crisp.if you have a decent speaker system. The major flaw on the DVD is for some reason it doesn't work well unless you have surround was very annoying when I got this for Christmas when all my equipment was at school. I watched it on my old TV and the bass always clipped the volume. So buy at your own discretion regarding the sound.

The show was a great one. The band threw in a bunch of tricks and some lengthy improv, especially on 'Hatesong'. The cameras didn't focus too much on the main man Steven Wilson which is always cool, shedding light on the other members. The songs were the very best of the 4 previous studio albums, although they skipped the first four albums.but this is about moving forward in their career anyway. The performance was incredible and there were no mistakes apparent to these eyes.

I highly recommend this DVD, only flaws are a prerequisite of a decent sound system and a little short for the money. If you are a fan this is an essential addition.
