4 stars This DVD was filmed with that same Metal Minds Productions team that have produced many projects oh that genre in the past and continue to do so at low cost for the artists. The show is 90 minutes of the complete concept album " Man Beyond Man and Time". This album was not intended to be a concept album at first but became one when musical ideas were popping out. This concept is based on the story of the responsibility of the man through different characters like the scientist, the fisherman and the blind. The band decided the only way to keep the audience close do that story was to create a dynamic visual experience with Yogi Lang costumes, projections, and big screens. The musicians were hiding behind those screens creating some Chinese shadows. As for the music, the live versions of that album was a real success and gives me the impression that the album was better than I could remember. For those who don't know how the band sound, the Pink Floyd influence is huge with more edgy guitars tones and a little Ozric Tentacles influence in the first part of the show. For the first time, Metal Mind has done a discrete surround sound where you can hear a lot of keys sound in the back to complete the visual experience and make it a nice addition to your collection.
