Bonus features on the DVD include documentary footage from 2010’s T in the Park, track-by-track commentary from the band and 5.1 audio.See all Product description

They absolutely rocked Wembley Arena and knew exactly how to get the crowd going! Their raw energy is captivating and despite jumping around the stage Simon holds every note.
Of course their popularity has sky-rocketed since the release of 'Puzzle' but check out the earlier stuff too. Although it's not so radio-friendly you can hear the trademark catchy hooks coming through already.
Recommend this CD/DVD set 100%... Biffy are about to explode worldwide in a BIG way!
Well the postman called an hour or so ago and listening to the CD now, it's everything I remembered and more. This documents a band at the very top of the tree (a summit that most have no hope of reaching); immaculately crafted songmanship combined with incredible dynamism. The energy coming off this CD is phenomenal and the song selection leaves nothing out. For those of you used to Only Revolutions and Puzzle, have a listen to "57" and the incredible "Justboy" from further back in their catalogue - they're everybit just as good.
I've not penned an Amazon Review before but Biffy forced me to. Can't wait to see the DVD...
As the title of the CD suggests it's packed with songs from the most recent album. A great intro for a set with 'The Captain' followed by two more heavy songs in 'Boom, Blast and Ruin' & '57'. Then 4 more tracks from Only Revolutions to lead up to one of my favourites in 'All The Way Down'. The flow of the setlist is perfect and by the time I'd reached Who's Got a Match this had already been sealed for me as utterly brilliant... and that's before I'd watched the show.
I made sure I sat down and watched the DVD in one go (which is really well shot btw). There is also a bonus T in the Park performance with behind the scenes snippets. After watching/listening to this I went back and made sure I got myself Biffy's earlier work. I liked them before his but I can honestly say they're now one of my favourite bands around.
I'd recommend this not only to the fans of Biffy Clyro but to anyone interested in getting to know their work.
There first 3 albums were absolutely brilliant & made them a well known act in around Scotland in addition to their many T in the Park performances. There last 2 albums have been ace too however their early stuff is the best, you should check it out.
Onto this album, live from Wembley, it was always going to be awesome. Never have I seen a Scottish band like Biffy take the world by storm they way they have, a fantastic set list & an unbelievable performance. Opening with The Captain is always a brilliant way to get started as that drumming noise really gets the crowd excited.
They play all the hits including my all time favourites 57 & Machines, two of the greatest songs I have ever heard from a Scottish band in my life.
I would definitely recommend this to any Biffy fan or any fan of good music.
With a heartfelt acoustic rendition of 'Folding Stars' which could bring an orc to tears and fast-paced, accentuated performances of 'Glitter and Trauma' and 'Living Is A Problem Because Everything Dies,' you really can't go wrong with this live album.
However, this is not the authentic Biffy experience. The true experience can only be achieved by seeing the Biff live. Great as this live album is, there has been an excessive amount of post-production - namely autotuning on Simon's voice. Simon's voice is incredible enough not to necessitate the use of pirch-correction. It is a shame they have used it, because it saps almost all character from Simon's voice and leaves only a perfectly tuned yet hollow representation of the vocal beast that is Simon Neil. It makes the songs sound like they're sung by an android an in some cases (for example 'That Golden Rule') renders the song almost unlistenable.
So, in conclusion: If you're just looking for a rockin' Biffy show packed with stadium anthems and big sounds, this is definitely for you. However, if you want a slice of raw Biff, there really is no alternative to seeing them live for yourself.
