5 stars Admittedly, it's quite a challenge to wade through the absolutely enormous material Edgar Froese keeps releasing. I have most of T. Dream albums, but yet to find the time to hear some for the first time! The reason being is that often the bulk of the pieces on many of their albums would only qualify as boring filler material by my preferences. Still, the tunes in-between are treasured possessions

Of course, T. Dream have gone through different phases and some periods may represent more appeal than others. Froese with his son Jerome have released numerous works, incl. remixes that are as a whole best to be forgotten - unless one is interested in mediocre Techno.

With that in mind it's not surprising that many would have given up on T. Dream and probably have missed out on some quality releases in recent years. Also, that to date no-one bothered with a review of this excellent DVD.

Here, Froese has put together a younger, very enthusiastic and highly skilled team. Well, it's not like back to the early years, except for the song selection that represents material spanning a few decades. The interpretation along with the instrumentation is different though and highly enjoyable. Two female artists (drums and saxes!) provide a welcome change in a male dominated area, adding color and spice to the overall presentation.

From beginning to end the performance is splendid and a pleasant change from seemingly endless filler material of a couple of decades ago. Highly recommended.

Oddly enough, throughout the performance Froese with a permanently stern and almost scary look on his face oversees the event from behind his gear. Meanwhile the rest of the band acts in a joyful and lively manner, providing a stark contrast to that! A great show, nevertheless.
