I agree with Neil. I ordered the $13.99 Blu-ray version from Amazon and it looks and sounds great. I love Grace for Drowning, even better than Insurgenetes (which was hit-n-miss for me). With SW's other projects (No Man, Blackfield) and now his solo work I was worried that I would be missing new Porcupine Tree releases but this live document has put those worries to rest. And I love this band too. I never thought that any drummer could make me forget Gavin but it has happened. I can't wait to watch it again. And again.The performance is outstanding - this has to be one of the best live bands currently touring.
I know I have said this elsewhere, but the band really are very, very tight & sound as if they have been playing together for years rather than just months.
Perhaps the mix is not as aggressive as others, but what it gave me was a definite sense of being there as opposed to playing a recording - and I am not saying (or even trying to imply) this is "big stereo"!!!
Far from it.
Yes, it's getting better after they remove the curtain, but the picture quality of this is not what strikes you when you watched the show.The picture quality is poor at the beginning because some of the cameras are shooting through the curtain at the front of the stage.
You can't see his feet, but they are working incredibly fast which you can hear well on the Blu ray disc. You get a better view of his footwork in Parts II and III. I'm not a drummer, but it looks very difficult. Also, is that a Kraftwerk T shirt in Part I?For those of you who watched the performance and thought, that drummer is not bad. Gavin better look out. Marco can drum!
