4 stars Marillion have kept the same recording crew that they did with the excellent " Somewhere in London", plus a impressive 14 cameras and a DTS sound uncompressed for the first time. The first DVD is the one where they played the whole Season's End cd plus some songs from the latest Happiness is the Road. The camera work is really good, not going too fast on each member to give us the chance too enjoy the shots. The DTS sound is well balanced to give a surround atmosphere where you can hear some nice solos in the back.

The second DVD is 2 hours and 20 minutes with a retrospective of their career. They had a good idea to indicate on the screen at the show, the years of each tracks. Include are 3 tracks from the Fish period.

The third DVD was a real treat, because, it's the epic songs of Mariillion like the amazing "Interior Lulu" and "This Strange Engine". I discovered the really good song "If my heart were a Ball it would roll uphill" that is taken from "Anoraknophobia" and show some nice instrumental sections. At times i had the impression that the Fish period was back listening to this third DVD.

In conclusion, let's say that after many releases Marillion is able to play some great music and now have release their more ambitious DVD with a crew that can support this band like they deserved after all this years.

4 stars for the moment...
