4 stars Following the tradition of The Marillion Weekends, here's another box-set from the 3 concerts in Port Zelande. The first day is the complete Holidays in Eden to celebrate his 20th anniversary. I was a bit apprehensive to listen to one if not the worst cd of the band, but after many years, it didn't seem so bad, there is some good songs. A interesting bonus on this first set, with the interpretation of songs of the band by fan's musicians, especially a exuberant Italian singer who made a energetic version of "Quartz".

The second disk is a greatest hits of songs played in a alphabetic order. 2 hours and forty minutes of songs, including a XTC's song to make up for the fact that the band didn't find any "X" song. A little surprise at the end with the song "Zeparated Out", who has the title say, some Led Zep riffs.

The third show, is another interesting idea of the band, to let the audience choose between 2 songs. It's time to hear again some songs from the excellent "Brave" cd.

In conclusion, even if this set list contains some repetitions in the second and third shows, with previous DVD's, it's more enjoyable to see it in Blu-Ray, because the picture is sharp, and the light show has never been so elaborate, with lasers and a big stage.
