Wow, even better than Arriving Somewhere!!!!'
29 June 2010 | by BurnItDwnSee all my reviews

Let's start off with the complaint. The sound menu is screwed up on the DVD. The real options are stereo PCM and DD5.1. Pretty much standard DVD Audio. No complaints about the sound quality, but it would have been nice if the menu wasn't incorrect.

Now, here's my opinions:

I've watched this three times since I got it a couple weeks ago. This is my new favorite music DVD.

The sound quality is flawless. Sounds as good as any studio album by any band. There is nonstop absolute perfection throughout when it comes to the audio recording.

The 5.1 Mix is fantastic. Parallels the 5.1 mix on Arriving Somewhere and IMO, it beat's Opeth Lammentations. (though Opeth still are my favorite band, but that's another subject)

The cinematography and camera-work as well as the background videos are timed, coordinated, and shot perfectly with the music.

The lighting is set up perfectly.

Very solid 10/10, best concert video I have ever seen. Best music video I have ever seen. Among the best videos I have seen of any genre. I think that even if all of the worlds greatest directors got together, and worked with Lasse Hoile, and he took the best advice he got, there could be no better result than this. Lasse Hoile and Porcupine tree achieved the impossible. They have achieved perfection.
