The jury may still be out regarding studio album quality since the departure of Neil Morse , but this DVD (and the Beard show I saw 3 days ago) proves that as a live unit , they must currently be one of the best prog outfits about. The mixture of old and newer material works well - the musicianship and good old fashioned showmanship is exceptional. This band look like they are enjoying it as much as the fans. As other reviewers have pointed out , Mr D'Virgilio has come from behind the drums and grown into the role of lead vocalist , but everyone does their bit to present some inspired performances. All in all , a must have package.

I didn't get into Spocks's Beard until quite recently, on the basis of groups I like such as Transatlantic and The Flower Kings.
Well, I have been missing out. This is a great production by a great band. The truth is that each member fits together like the pieces of a jigsaw.....note perfect. The enthusiasm of the performers is evident throughout. They have a great time. As will you if you get this DVD.
