5 stars A truly surprising DVD! Outstandind performance by an outstanding band. Kamelot is in top form! The track list is absolutely fantastic and takes you mesmerized through the whole show. Roy Khan is not only one of the best singers around but has also a very strong stage presence that matches the dramatic music Kamelot delivers. The use of a choir for some of the singing parts enhances the symphonic and classical side a lot and gives a very live feel. Olivier Palotai was the right choice for the keyboards, working very well live and being capable of reproducing the intricated orchestral parts of the studio recordings. The presence of singers/actors on some songs add an extra visual impact to the already entrancing performancec. I specially loved the presence of Simone Simmons (Epica) as Marguerite.

Kamelot did an amazing live work, as everything works here: the sound is crystal clear, the band sound as good live as on the record (in fact maybe a little better than on studio), the audience are made of real fans and the songs are superbly chosen. Khans wonderful voice soars! It is nice to see he is that good on the stage. The overall performance gives me shivers down the spine every time I see it.

Kamelot went a long way since the days they were just another power metal band. Their sound now is powerful indeed, but it defies classification. This is truy progressive heavy music, made by intelligent, creative and skillfull people. Im really glad they are in PA. Kamelot is one of the best prog metal bands. No noodling, no pointless virtuosity displays: just great musicians playing great melodic music. Heavy, yes, but with delicate, subtle, tasxteful arrangements.

One fo the best DVDs in my collection and the final proof that this kind of music has a lot to show in the prog world.

5 stars with honor!
