4 stars Roger Hodgson alone represented the whole project by Supertramp and still today! In fact the present DVD- featuring a famous concert recorded in Montreal in 2006- is a typical example regarding his unique style and talent as well..the ideas and the melodic impact of his songs are a "Roger Hodgson's trademark"; and moreover his versatility (He plays the keyboards, the 12 Strings Guitar and even the harmonica) makes himself like the "one showman" by Supertramp. So all these features let us choose the present DVD like a must-have within the AOR/pompous melodic music-genre: think of some ever- green tunes like "The Logical Song" or "Long Way Home", without forgetting another remarkable song such as "Dreamer" and you can understand his value as a strong melodic composer!! Naturally I'm a piano player like him and I'm so happy when He plays the Grand Piano or the Electric Piano with the same naturalness; even though I'm in the habit to have my personal benchmark to measure the skill by Roger (that's the Live In Paris by Supertramp) and sometimes it seems lacking his old approach when He's involved with the choice of the songs selection (actually a difficult and embarassing choice it is)...but it's a minor defect after all, like the omission of a full "Fool's Overture, cause He's able to create a great feeling and emotion anyway here...perhaps ever!!
