5 stars Third DVD from Opeth, this one is special being filmed at the Royal Albert Hall. The band decide to play the entire Blackwaterpark cd on the first DVD and a song from each of their cd's in the second DVD. The first thing important to look at first was the sound. Let's say that it's a full sound that gives a nice 5.1 surround atmosphere. Then, the next thing is about the picture. It's quiet good for a standard DVD. I am just suprised that this one didn't make it on Blu-Ray. The camera work is excellent with many angles coming from the front row and high in the balcony wich gives stunning shots from the stage. The new guitarist, Frederik Akesson does a good performance considering the fact that he is a new guy in the band. A funny moment with a equipement breakdown arrive at the end of the show wich seems to last forever, but the crowd and band took it so well that it cames out Ok. This DVD/CD combo contents a very interesting interview with Mikael Åkerfeldt of 40 minutes where he talks about a lot of things and show is "down to earth" personnality. Nothing wrong to say about the music here that you don't already know; it's Opeth, so it's a band that manages to unify with great talents and intensity heavy passages with delicate ones. I just hope to hear more clean vocals from Mickael and less death ones in the future.

Highly recommended !
