As a long-time Rush fan disillusioned with their output since the late 1980's, (and never really being able to get into the OTT musical posing that is Dream Theatre), Porcupine Tree are a revelation for me. The musicianship is superb but the songs are also supremely crafted with crunching riffs, haunting melodies and how refreshing it is to see decent guitar solos again (even Rush don't bother on the newer material!)
This DVD will draw you in and you'll be left wanting more! PT are a real inspiration and have restored my faith in modern Rock!!
The extras aren't much to shout about, apart from the mesmeric Cymbal Song by Gavin Harrison - a virtuoso exploration of percussion.
But the presentation's great, and the sound quality nothing short of remarkable.
The concert itself isn't visually breathtaking, though the editing, presentation etc. are all good. This is all about the sound, and all about the playing - and that's what makes the DVD so compelling - which is what concert footage should be focussed around.
Watching them play is almost as compelling as listening, so hurrah!
Enjoy. 5 stars and a rare treat.
This DVD is superb - some of the tracks are quite heavy, but it also has real gems like Arriving/ Even Less and the Sound of Muzack. The sound quality is exceptional, and the visuals add to the overall intensity of the performances.
This band should be placed above Pink Floyd for quality song writing and certainly deserve main stream exposure (media hacks note) -
If you like great music buy this today!!
Standout track for me is the 17 minute epic Arriving Somewhere But Not Here, but all the material is great, no filler tracks on here.
A definite five star must buy but please check out the Blu-Rays Anesthetize and Get All You Deserve as well, all three are superb.
The best sounding live band of all time these guys are masters of their instruments.
Very, very good a definite must buy.
Three things I like about this concert are 1) Gavin Harrison's drumming, 2) the joint vocals are spot on and 3) the way that Steven Wilson shares the guitar solos and not take all the credit by playing them all himself.
The one thing I didn't like was that the track Radioactive Toy on disc 2 is the shortened version and misses the original coda piece off (probably due to time restraints as it was taken from a German TV Broadcast).
If you have never seen the Tree, go and get this item and see what the fuss is about. I would also point out that this DVD is also a good starter for people new to Porcupine Tree.
But the highlights for me are 'Hatesong' and 'Dont Hate me' side by side. The drumming on 'Hatesong' is incredible and overall its better live here than on the album Lightbulb Sun.
Also of course the 13 minute + 'Arriving Somewhere but not here' is awesome, and its nice to see a track like 'Heartattack in a Layby' live too. Rare treats include 'Mother and Child Divided' and 'So called friend' (tracks taken out of Deadwing).
Get this Dvd, its flawless. Cant wait for 'Fear of a blank planet'.
