A great document of Porcupine Tree's last two phases, since Stupid Dream to Deadwing the band made a very solid performance, giving another life to their sound. In fact, in several tracks their effort gave a particular feeling to the music, surpassing the album version. The DVD quality is so great that it would be difficult, if not impossible, to say that it was a live performance if we did not listen to people screaming or clapping at the end of the tracks.

Outstanding are the inevitable Arriving Somewhere but Not Here, one of the greatest tracks ever made, a superb mix of a strange and recondite feeling with sophisticated sonic rock power. Other magnificent performance is from technically brilliant and heartbreaking "Hatesong", the always vibrating "Blackest Eyes", the ballad "Lazarus" in which Steven Wilson's voice seem to be less shy and even more celestial than studio version, the supreme beauty of "The Start of Something Beautiful", the psychedelic "Even Less" and the captivating "Trains" even though its unexpected incident.

Could be a great start for those who don't know one of the most important bands of nowadays. An impressive and rare sound quality among live performances. Almost impossible not like it, even if they sound even better seen really live.
