4 stars Don't get me wrong, the setlist on this show was great, the performance was great, but for heavens sake when someone buys a dvd of a concert they would much rather see the concert in full detail rather than some kinda acid trip-esque...thing.

I do like the music on this, and there's some great moments where you actually get to see the band close up, but for the whole thing it' like sitting in the back row of the concert hall, you get a view of the whole stage pretty much. Not very good, you want close ups, you wanna see your heros play those instruments close up, you wanna see the effortlessness in which they do it. It's not brilliant, but it's not really completely rubbish, it's in the middle somewhere, and if the actual performance and setlist wasn't as excellent as it is, it would get a 2 or 3. But there's no denying the brilliance of And You And I, or Close to the Edge, or the piece de resistance, Awaken, and in honesty you do at times get some pretty good views of some band members, just at the wrong times...Chris Squire during a Steve Howe LAP STEEL solo...I thought Chris played Bass? And what on earth is with the guy skiing off the mountain in Going For The One?

I got it for 5 and at that, i can't complain. Good length, great setlist and incredible performance, stupid editor. If you can get it cheap, then do so!
