Outstanding
2 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was a voyage of nostalgia and how I wish I could have attended one of the live concerts. Instead I settled for a home cinema experience that blew my mind. When we first bought the album, my husband and I had not been married long. My children have grown up with and love it as much as we do and we really loved the experience so much that we watched it two nights running. Fantastic! I recommend this for anyone to watch. You will not regret the experience. If you can, see it on a large screen surround sound and imagine that you are in the audience. I don't think I've ever seen a conductor enjoy himself as much as Jeff Wayne. Well done to all.
