This review is from: Get All You Deserve [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I somehow managed to keep Steven Wilson and Porcupine Tree under my radar for all these years. This despite the fact of being somewhat hard core Pink Floyd, Genesis and Yes fan and loving most of the stuff from Rush, King Crimson and the likes.
Since listening to Steven's Raven album on Bluray multichannel a couple of months ago (based on a friend's recommendation) things have started move fast. Soon-to-be-released Porcupine Tree DVD-Audio multichannels are on order, but in the meantime Steven's album and the Get All You Deserve video will need to serve the almost manic need to listen to this GREAT prog rock. And this starts to get serious: almost no day goes by without either listening to Raven or watching Get All You Deserve.
Simply put, Steven Wilson and Porcupine Tree are the best thing happened to me in the music scene since teenage years - and those are long gone. I cannot say which I prefer, PT or the other "branch", both are wonderful.
Overall, Get All You Deserve is the best concert film I have seen since Roger Waters' In the Flesh. Yes Symphonic Live gets fairly close, though. Why is this? Because of the absolutely amasing prog rock songs, for sure. I love them all, but if I *had* to choose TOP3 then maybe these: Luminol, Abandoner and Secretarian. Because of the production values. For me, all serious listening (almost) equals to multichannel format and Get All You Deserve does not let you down in that department. The sound may not be perfect 10 but very close to that in any case (OK, maybe the bar is too high here). And because of the truly amazing mucisians. I have never enjoyed so much just watching people play their instruments - very often stunned by their magical skills. Again, wouldn't like to pick anyone, but the drummer Marco Minneman just blows me, and my speakers, away.
This video is a must have. Would definitely recommend the Bluray format, not so much because of the picture quality, but for the sound quality - to be able to enjoy every detail of the awesome 5.1 mix.
