4 stars For me (in my opinion), Fish is one of the best vocalist in the progressive world. You can listen to his masterpiece with Marillion '82 until '88. Unfortunately, he left the band and formed a new group which the name taken from his name. It's been 15 years since his superb performance in "Recital Of The Script" (that I've reviewed before), and now (when the film was taken), his voice is far from his top performance (actually, he had "lost" his voice!). Many people don't know much and pay attention to his band but they have to know that he's still a good songwriter until now. All his albums (for me) are better than all Marillion's album ('89-present). And, this DVD can reflect my opinion. Even if you are disappointed with the poor angle quality, you still can enjoy brilliant songs created by himself such as "The Perception Of Johnny Punter", "Jungle Ride", "A Gentleman's Excuse Me", "Brother 52", and my favorite "Cliché". You also can enjoy some tracks from Marillion era such as "Assassing", "Fugazi", "White Feather", and a melancholic "Lavender". Especially Lavender, there's a great moment here that all the audiences are still happy and they all shout loudly to keep supporting Fish although the rain falls heavily. That thing makes it a value moment for me. Disc 2 is a bonus DVD and you can get some bonus such as "A Badger's Day" and "Reflections Of Sunsets" (interview with Fish!!!) inside it. Final comment, if you are a great fans of Neo Progressive genre (especially Fish), you have to collect it.

"Reflections From The Visitor"..
