Up there with House of Cards and Breaking Bad. Often a show starts falling away after two seasons but this is an exception to the rule. The format now ties each episode together with cliff hanging scenes. Exceptional performances from all the cast. Recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars a very worthwhile extended performance, 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would guess that most fans considering this purchase will already be intimately acquainted with this album. I myself are amongst the 'hard core' that have rated this as my favourite Tull album. Sad maybe, but remember APP reached No.1 in the US. I would heartedly recommend it to all who love the album already, or want to re-experience it. The sound engineering by Steven Wilson is superb as always. He has managed to remix and rejuvenate the sound brilliantly without losing any of the character of the original mix. This is demonstrated on both the CD and DVD 5.1 mixes. The music has been organised into individual tracks (similar to the MFSL remaster). However, the album plays gapplessly as its intended to be a song cycle I assume. This gives one a chance to skip the 'Hare has lost ..........' in case you find it tedious after 1,000 plays! There is even an extra verse on the 'Foot of Our stairs' track which has been inexplicably missed on previous releases. This is another example of the care and attention that has gone into this release along with the 80 booklet giving further incite from Steven Wilson, the ballerina and the infamous 'Crime of Passion' review.

Great care has also been taken to review the Chateau d'Herouville sessions. Although much of the work has been recycled into APP and subsequent albums, the sessions still work as great contribution to the Jethro Tull body of the work. Here they are presented as remixed pieces in CD as well as 5.1 surround and should not be seen as just early version 'fillers' that you find on many deluxe offerings from other artists. Jethro Tull have more respect for their fan base than that.

I hope that this release sparks a re-evaluation of APP within the 'prog rock' genre and renews interest in a sometimes maligned Album. Keep the Jethro Tull re-releases coming. I will certainly pre-order with confidence if this is the quality of work I can expect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Song of Britain's Past and Present in 52 minutes, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Homo Erraticus (Deluxe) (Audio CD)
I really don't think you should miss this one out!. Ian Anderson has produced another thoughtful and intricate piece of excellent music. Truly impressive. The musicianship is of the highest order and the togetherness of the band following their extensive touring is up there with Tull at their best. The packaging and documentation of the CD/DVD offering is high quality and superb value for money. The accompanying video of the background to making the album is engaging and demonstrates the care that has gone into the making of the album. The DVD includes at 24bit version of the albums to satisfy the audiophiles. All in all a great deal Don't miss out on a great 'concept' album and catch them on the forthcoming tour. No living in the past for these guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Straight to DVD?, 2 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Anno 1790 [DVD] (DVD)
I watched this series about a year ago and enjoyed it enormously. It is very surprising that it has not made it to British TV, or indeed a second series. I understand that a second series was planned but was dropped at the last moment. The show typifies the best of Scandinavian crime drama with multiple layers of interest combining romantic, political and social commentary within the plots . Although set in the late 18th century amongst the political turmoil following the French revolution its still can be enjoyed as crime drama. However,it captures the different approach a detective would have to take in an era where it did not seem to matter who was convicted of a murder so long as somebody was. SVT went to a lot of trouble creating superb sets and location shots and the show really deserves the widest audience possible.

Very good spec and good WiFi range. Had to reboot several times in first month but otherwise functions well. Would recommend as an alternative to bigger brands.
