2 stars Not the best performance of this ambitious album, but still listenable given its complexity. Rather, one will want to check this one out for the concert's visuals, but not necessarily because of their excellence. Daniel is appropriately cool, changing outfits and performing theatrics appropriate to the song's themes, but everyone else is... well, very goofy. The symphony is dressed in suits with painted face, some of them looking like little gnomes uncomfortable with the half-naked, tattooed, red-painted, scruffy bearded, dreadlocked, guitar playing Johan Hallgren snarling through his box of plexi-glass and the odd looks Kristopher Gildenlow gives to the camera in his skimpy outfit, which looks very "Rocky Horroresque".

As a whole, the limited content (just "Be") and the (admit it) mediocre performances relegate this live DVD into the region of "only for the fans."
