5 stars When I first saw this film, the experience was really contradictory - as always hearing PT's new recordings.

Setlist was almost perfect, the musicianship was perfect, video editing was cool and sound engineering was brilliant. So what was wrong? Well, my best live experiences have been L Zep's dvd and Kingston Wall's triple cd, 'The Real Live Thing'. Some of you might know that these bands are extremely creative when it comes to playing live. So, PT leaves the improvisation to aforemention bands. That was the main problem when seeing this film for a first time - they weren't improvising at all (well guitar solos and drum fills were nothing from the albums before, of course).

But I admit that it was better this way. The songs are so perfect that they would have ruined them if they were improvising. And now, many, many listenings later, this is the greatest live dvd that i've ever seen.
