5 stars In interviews surrounding the release of the "Grace for Drowning" album last year, Steven Wilson commented on how modern progressive rock (including even his own Porcupine Tree) had become mostly devoid of the original jazz/improvisational influences that colored many of the original progressive bands of the 70's, and that with his new solo album he was trying to re-incorporate some of these older prog elements.

The album was a great success overall, but these jazz and improvisational elements really reach their full potential in this new Blu-Ray/DVD release "Get All You Deserve", capturing the live shows earlier this year in support of "GFD" . By bringing accomplished jazz musicians Adam Holzman (on keyboards) and Theo Travis (on woodwinds) on this tour, along with an excellent cast of rock/prog musicians, SW gives us extended versions of a number of his songs from his first two albums with many improvised elements and solos, to a very positive effect.

The highlight for me as mentioned by some other reviewers is the new track "Luminol", which has it all - great prog instrumental sections, nicely flowing improv sections, emotional ebbs and swells. (This track will be put out as a studio recording on the next SW album, due out next year). As has come to be expected from any SW release, the visuals and surround sound quality on this Blu-Ray are just top notch! This is a highly pleasing sound and visual experience, and overall very highly recommended!
