5 stars This is easily one of the most stunning live performances I have seen on DVD. The video work is great, a much better improvement from the choppy Nothing DVD. Meshuggah plays atleast one song from every album except for Catch 33, which would be a negative thing if the other material wasn't so awesome anyways. Everything played here is loud, perfect, with creative solos from Thordendal. The sound of the band tends to alter from album to album, and you can see how their current live sound fits most with their latest, Obzen. It is absolutely crushing. Jens Kidman's voice is as deep and developed as ever before, which adds a new dimension to the other material.

The special features in the DVD are a highlight. In the video itself, there are a bunch of 'meet the band' videos and biographical insight. It also features a drum and guitar tour, and a 'making of' the Bleed video, as well as the music video itself.
