3 stars A little dissapointed with this, having seen them do some acoustic numbers brilliantly on their last (2004) tour. There's no real atmosphere here, or if there was one, it's not captured on the film; but the basic idea does work, particularly where they re-arrange the number, so its not just the original arrangement merely un-plugged; "Roundabout" for instance gets a jazzy treatment. The extras comprise trailers for the event - it was a studio transmission prior to the premiere of "Yes speak" - which are definitely for completionists only - and the inevitable behind the scenes rockumentary, with commentary by Rick Wakeman which is by turns funny, then a little embarrassing to listen to. It's an interesting project, but if you have the chance, I'd advise you to try before you buy.
