5 stars I can never get enough of these fine musicians. While yes they play the exact same songs as Whirld Tour dvd, there is a reason to get this. With musicians at this level something wonderful happens called "variety". A concert will never look or sound the same. This is the case with this release. There is also different jams and extended instrumental passages. Mike plays with a different feel, Roine emphasizes some guitar lines over others, Pete plays out a bass lines softer differently, Neal plays a different keyboard passage or sings something differently. The point is it's different. And with the progged up mega pack you get two concerts one in Tillburg filmed, and the other in Manchester on audio (which is the last gig). The venue has a different vibe as well, as every one should. The musicians are all flawless, everything is nailed perfectly. While as of now I do prefer the first dvd release because I like the venue more, the camera angles and clarity are better, and I think the musicianship is slightly better. Plus Morse sounds a little better on the first dvd in my opinion. Now for the live audio one in Manchester included, this is just pure prog goodness. The live recording from that show is excellent. I still side with the first release though (the mega pack one with 2 dvd 3 cds), but still this one you should not pass up. These guys are. the masters of modern progressive rock. One can never get enough of the pure talent and composition these modern Bachs and Beethovens harness. So why get it? Well if you're a huge Transatlantic fan you probably will or already have it, but it's the concept of variety. There is always differences between shows (and you get two), for others they will prefer this one over the first (which in not the case for me as of now), but it's still a wonderful expression of the greatest genre on the earth. Progressive Rock executed to perfection by it's premier super group called TRANSATLANTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This a masterpiece. Five out of Five. (also included are four of the stranger jams which are quite funny and delightful. Mike goes pre- 2011 Opeth on us in one of them. Oh Mike and death metal ha ha ha ha)
