5 stars I will be short. A-MA-ZING !!! The setlist is wonderful (even though we could have used stuff from Signify), the sound is as great as I thought it would be (Wilson got us used to such quality, and he does not dissapoint), the band is in perfect shape and are flawless (except for that broken string in Trains, but fortunately it happened before Wilson even struck a note before the middle section of the song, and he had a replacement guitar at hand) and, contrary to most reviewers, I find Lasse Hoile's editing perfect for two reasons : One - it fits the material and Two - it adds to the replay value, in my humble opinion. Every song is a highlight, and I was blown away by Mother and Child Divided, which has a rythmic phrasing somewhat similar to Rush's YYZ. Hatesong also stands out... Hell, all songs do !

Definitely in my Top Three Live DVD's ever, a fitting documentary of a band caught in it's prime.

An undisputed five stars.
