SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Heavy / RPI / Symphonic Prog Team
3 stars PBII, what a terrible band name is Plackband II, don't know why they couldn't stick to this name. Here we have a DVD made in Netherlands to launch their CD "Plasctic Soup" released in 2010. So the concert is the complete presentation of that release. There is some cuts during the concert like there's were others songs played, i would have love to see songs from Plackband, but the band decided to put others tracks in the extras, one have nothing to do with prog rock and others are covers of Pink Floyd "Have A Cigar" with a John Jowitt struggling big time with the vocals, and "Here come the Flood" sing by John Mitchell who does a better job.

This band have been compared many times to Genesis, but the biggest influence seems for me to be Pallas with the guitars and the heavier parts. The compositions are rather good, not outstanding, apart for "Book of Changes", "Loneliness" and "Cradle to Cradle". "The Great Pacific Garbage Patch" represent clearly the environmental message of the album : "Plastic Pollution Kills"

The light show, the camera work and the surround 5.1 mix are very well done, and how nice to see a DVD by a neo prog band shot someplace else than Poland! In the extras, as i have mentioned, we get additional tracks, plus the video "Plastic Soup" who looks like a edited version of the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch". Also a montage of the show played at high speed, like all kind of documentary should be played to avoid boredness.
