5 stars This DVD is a great experience, I ordered a copy and waited 2 weeks for its arrival (This DVD was not released in my country, Argentina), and I can tell you it was well worth the waiting.

What we have here is a masterpiece of an album played in its entirety by an amazing group of musicians who play this music with true passion and emotion. The rhythmic section is rich and dinamic, with Mark Leniger adding a lot with his percussion and Portnoy with his.... you know who he is. I didn't knew of any of this performers before watching this DVD (with the exceptions of Neal and Mike) and I got to tell you, all these musicians are top notch, they exceeded my expectations. I was specially surprised with Eric Brenton's skills, wow what a complete and talented musician!

In addition you get 50+ min of music in disc 2, two songs (and what songs!) from Transatlantic (a half of Transatlantic is on stage) and one from his Spock's Beard days. Stranger In Your Soul alone is worth buying this DVD. Also included on disc 2 is a documentary wich lasts for more than an hour. Filmed with their own cameras, and linked by Neal's comentaries, is a nice entertainment, like a day by day diary, with a lot backstage footage, the band on the bus etc. as well as excerpts from other shows of the tour.

Some may complain about the lack of a 5.1 track, but in the other hand the sound quality is superb. The video resolution is very good also.

A must have.
