Prog Reviewer
4 stars I'm quite pleased with the performance on this DVD. The setlist is bound to please many a proghead as they stick with songs from their classic era. Most of the songs are from the FRAGILE and CLOSE TO THE EDGE albums, and while we hear great live versions of ''South Side of the Sky'', ''Siberian Khatru'' and ''Heart of the Sunrise'', I'm slightly disappointed that ''Close to the Edge'' is missing. ''Awaken'' (and Anderson playing harp) somewhat make up for this shortcoming. They also pulled a FRAGILE and gave every member solo time (Alan and Chris on the same jam); it's mostly annoying from my standpoint, but Steve Howe does give an interesting acoustic interpretation of ''To Be Over'' (I will always prefer the studio). Still, it's one DVD that would sit well in a prog collection.
