I recommend this to all fans of Porcupine Tree and rock music alike, in fact anyone into musical genre's losely linked to rock. Porcupine Tree are generaly put into the prog/psychedelic rock category, but for me they just have their own genre entirely. This is first class music, production and quite literally a flawless performance from my favourite band, and one of the UK's finest.
Lasse Hoile (the danish film director) has done a fine job and also noticeably tried something else in style to the 'Deadwing'-esque filming of the 'Arriving Somewhere...' Dvd. You really get a great look at how these musicians are performing their music.
I also must point out the reason that this Dvd is entitled 'Anesthetize'.... you just have to watch this track here to realise it really is one of the bands greatest tracks and here it is in all its glory, all 17+minutes of it or however long it is! It leaves me speechless every time live at a concert and its great to just be able to click repeat and watch it at leisure as many times as you like!
Other fantastic live tracks here include 'Sever', 'Sleep of no dreaming', the beautiful 'half-light', and also some real treats with the tracks here off 'In Absentia'.
All in all a must have if you are into the band, if youre new, prepare to have your minds blown.
