4 stars After the wonderfull Arriving Somewhere DVD (which by my reckoning is the best music DVD out there) we have PT's latest release featuring a complete performance of Fear Of A Blank Planet.Although filmed in HD this is basically a no frills presentation. No black and white bits ,no grainy bits etc that were cleverly edited together on Arriving Somewhere.This is a bog standard concert performance shot with a professionalism that you would expect. Trouble is that PT are not the most flamboyant band there is! No humour ,not even much interaction with the audience.So really your enjoyment of this depends on whether you appreciate the Fear of A Blank Planet album and are desperate to see it performed live. For me its a solid 4 star release and not as good as Deadwing and In Absentia (both masterpeices in my book). Trouble is the rest of the concert avoids some of the best PT songs such as Trains and Arriving Somewhere. Halo is hardly a grandstanding closer. So my resevations about this is based on the set list and not the very high professional standard of the DVD.I can't comment on the extras as my Blue Ray player can't access them! Overall a 4 star release.
