2 stars This is an extremely bad dvd production! I cant understand all the positive reviews here on Progarchives. Of course the music is good, only classic Banco masterpieces. But the production/editing is actually SO bad! I guess its an attempt to make an artistic dvd, but what could have been a nice concert dvd is terribly spoiled by stupid sound effects, annoying film clips and bad editing. Some examples: - bursts of sounds from the audience are mixed into the songs at a high volume, sometimes several times in the same song. And they are not even authentical! (Not synchronized with the footage!) Very stupid! - a lot of old black & white film snippets and to much (out of synch!) footage of the audience are mixed with the concert footage. - the guitarist and the bass-player are mostly ignored by the cameramen/editor. Most footage is concentrated on the singer. The drummer and the keyboard player get their fair share as well but if you want a good look at the guitar- or bassplaying, forget it!

The picture quality is fine and the sound quality is OK (though not very good).

This is only for the die hard Banco fan! I give it two stars only because of the great music. Better get yourself another cd instead of this crappy dvd. If you want a good Italian prog dvd, get PFM - Live in Japan and see what a well produced music dvd should be like!
