About five years ago, I told a friend of mine, "This band can do no wrong". With this latest DVD, it's still true. With Steven Wilson on lead vocals and guitar, plus mixing the 5.1 surround sound, this is truly a marvel to behold, both visually and sonically. Wilson has been writing the majority of lyrics for all their albums and is considered the "voice" of PT. He also does the occasional turn on keyboards. There's nothing flashy about his playing, but he's still a truly under-rated guitarist. There are few words to describe a band with this much talent, yet, all the members are very unassuming. Richard Barbieri fills in with his keyboards, creating sonic landscapes that fill the speakers. Colin Edwin, doing a workman's bass, lays down the solid and necessary foundation required of any band with so much precision. John Wesley is the "touring" guitarist, backing up Wilson on vocals and guitar. But, occasionally, he shines with his own excellent guitar and wonderful voice. Gavin Harrison.....well, what else can be said about him. He's constantly on the go, re-affirming his stance as the world's greatest progressive drummer for four years in a row. If you're interested in rock music, excellent vocals, well-played, with thought-provoking lyrics, wonderful musicianship, great visuals, plus great surround sound effects, get this DVD!
