5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch Concert DVD!!! June 28, 2008
Format:DVD
If you're already a fan of Spock's Beard or just a fan of progressive rock music in general, this DVD will not disappoint!

Unlike so many concerts released on DVD recently, this one won't make you dizzy or upset with speedy camera changes or footage of nonsense between songs. You see all the riffs you'd prefer to see by any particular band member during any song and if you've listened to much SB, you understand this accomplishment. Also, you don't have to worry about the band kicking in with a killer track, only for the sound to soften to allow footage of the band to talk over it. This DVD does an excellent job of allowing the fan to imagine they're very much a part of the show. (The only thing I can find that a very picky fan might gripe about, is that when a different song is starting, small text will appear briefly to announce that song's title. I personally loved this touch and did not AT ALL find it distracting, since I never had to reach for the DVD's jacket to recall a song's name.) It becomes obvious within the first song, the direction of this release had very professional intentions.

Also, as far as the sound of this release is concerned, it's absolutely perfect in my opinion. The band sounds whole, you can easily hear each instrument equally and nothing is lost in the mix. Even the audience is mixed well, they don't drown out songs, yet in between songs when the band interacts with them, you can make out fan's comments word for word! You become aware quickly the appreciation the band and the fans have for each other. Band mates even crowd surf during some very touching moments (pun intended) of the show.

Next, I'll address SB fans who are unsure about getting this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just one little complaint... July 20, 2008
By Graeme
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As someone new to SB I'm utterly impressed with everything this band does and the DVD does an excellent job of illustrating how talented and versatile these guys are- how they reproduce a complex and awesome CD sound live.
My only complaint is suffering a little "genius overload". Song after song is an awesome display of musical talent and you actually start to take it for granted and miss some of the things they do!
Highly recommended, especially if you're a musician. I would have liked to see Alan Morse's guitar rig just to discover how he gets some of those sounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars these guys still have some serious energy! December 12, 2008
Format:DVD
as a spock's fan for nearly 12 years i'm still amazed how much they get into their music. lots of energy in this show and appeals to fans both pre/post neal departure. will we ever talk about spock's without having to refer to it being pre/post neal ... i hope so. i think they've finally managed to step out of that and into a new era. they've really done well with this dvd. good camera work and huge setlist. cool intro/menus too.

looking forward to the next album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome concert! April 4, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I must (sheepishly) admit that I had never heard of this band until a friend posted a FB link to a YouTube video from this DVD (Crack The Big Sky) about a month ago. I have always loved prog rock but somehow missed these guys. This show is FANTASTIC and the DVD is top-notch. Great video, audio, and the musicians are incredible. As a drummer, I really appreciate the performances of Nick D'Virgilio and Jimmy Keegan, who put on a dynamic but rather short dual drum solo in Drum Duel. I liked this so much that over the following 2 weeks, I bought just about everything Spock's Beard has recorded.

And to add my 2 cents about the whole "SB is not the same without Neal Morse" argument - I actually prefer their post-Neal work. I know that makes me a heretic, but to me they sound more together and I think NDV has a great voice. From what I have heard, Feel Euphoria, Octane, Spock's Beard, and X are their best recordings. There - I said it...

If you like prog rock, you absolutely cannot go wrong with this show.
