4 stars Now I know that I have poorly peepers and deaf old tabs, but I fail to pick up on any video or any sound problems on this release, it all looks good and sounds good to me. The only quibble I have with the visuals is that occasionally the director sees fit to make it go all grainy, not to my tastes at all. What is to my taste, is the editing is not fast and frenetic, but you get nice long, leisurely shots of the band at work, which is nice. Could I whinge about the setlist? Being a professional curmudgeon then yes Will I whinge about the setlist? Hell No! There haven't yet been many bad Opeth songs and none of them are here, so let us ROCK!!! The set provides us with a nice little Opeth selection box, and like all good choccy boxes there is a choice between Hard centres, and soft centres, and some of the little choccies have a mixed filling - yum, yum! And with a nice bit of Black Metal nonsense in the lyrics to "Under the Weeping Moon" I do believe their excellencies are spoiling us.

One star has been docked for it not being a masterpiece of Progressice Rock music as it's a masterpiece of HEAVY METAL, Il;m sure though that an open minded Prog Fan would find a little room in their little elven hearts to love this one.
