4 stars This DVD is another concert shot by the Metal Mind crew at the same venue in Katowice Poland, so you know what to expect with the stage settings, the light show and camera work. This is a very professional shot concert with another neo prog band that has played in the shadows of the big bands in this genre, like IQ and Pendragon. And to me this band deserve more attention with the quality of the music here. In fact, their music is mostly influenced by the 80's and 90's Neo Prog bands than the 70's bands. They have created a original sound over the years by adding some spacey sounds with the keyboards of Dean Baker. The voice of Stuart Nicholson has always seduce me and his performance is very good on this concert, which feature a greatest hits of their career and also songs that would be part of their next release, the excellent "Empire Never Last"

All the songs are excellent and are in the range of 10 minutes, which give the music a lot of space to reach some emotional climax. The band did this DVD at the right time after 21 years of existence, when the band have reached a lot of maturity in their compositions. The DVD has some interesting extras : interviews, and additional audio demos tracks from the "Empires Never Last" sessions. Their is also a subtle 5.1 surround sound to go with the usual stereo sound.

I would give this a 4.5 stars! Not a classic, but close.
