5 stars In the past, I thought that this show was just in VHS version. So, I was surprised when I found it in DVD version in Singapore 6 months ago. So was my father. Well, without any problem at all, we decided to buy it with high hope.

What's the result? My father was dissapointed and he said that althought Marillion is his favourite band, their performance in their show was not as good as their performance in their studio album. Forget it! I still consider that this DVD is a Masterpiece.

Allright, allright I'm sure you're getting bored if I continuing my story. Let's talk about the DVD.

The show was begun with "Script For A Jester's Tear". Yes, that's my Marillion favourite song. Fish's vocals was very loud and cool, right? And the show goes on to the next song, "Garden Party". After "Garden Party", it's time for "The Web". This is my favourite song beside "The Script". Ah, why did everybody never like this song? This is a fantastic song, I think. See Steve Rothery's super solo guitar in the middle.That's one of the best guitar solo I've ever heard. Unfortunately, when Steve palyed solo, the camera was shooting Fish's action who kicked out the palnt and stand behind the audiences. Well, that's definitely a good action, but Steve's solo was more exiting. Oh, I've passed something. Don't forget to see Fish's spirit when he said "But Even Jester's Cry!!!" He was like a drunken who had a fantastic voice. I wonder if everybody like this song (when they realize after they read my reviews, he...he...).

The next one was "Chelsea Monday". Wow, now the camera didn't shoot a wrong action. We can see Steve's solo this time. The next song is "He Knows You Know" then "Forgotten Sons". The last track I mention was filled with Pete's amazing bass combined with powerful drums by Mick, and she how Fish acted like a soldier and the song was closed with (again...) brilliant guitar by Steve. "Market Square Heroes" and "Grendel" closed their show.

I think this DVD is very interesting. Unfortunately, this DVD was too Fish-sentris. You can see that almost all over the DVD was everything about Fish. So, if you like Fish very much, you will happy to have this DVD.

And, that's my opinion. Remember, just my opinion not the final fact. I think everybody has a very very different opinion. So, I was dissapointed when my debut review about Marillion - "Brave The Film" was "criticized". Hope, next time there's another reader who understand my review wiser and wiser althought I'm still sixteen and haven't known the progressive music too deep; We, especially as the reader have to react wisely and fully intelligent by apreciating all the opinions.

Final word, sorry if my English is bad. Next time, I'll make a better review.
