Editorial Reviews

ANESTHETIZE is a DVD which captures the power of the band’s live show. Recorded on multi-cameras over two nights at 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland in October 2008, the concerts featured tracks from throughout the band’s career. ANESTHETIZE collects the highlights from the two shows. It is only the band’s second ever DVD release and will be available on Kscope in Spring 2010.

This is what I mean: I was fortunate enough to attend two concerts from the same tour that the DVD is taken from. No question, PT is better enjoyed live; however, this DVD offers significant advantages that a live concert cannot provide:

1. You watch it when you feel like it.
2. You don't have to drive to get to the concert.
3. The guy in front of you won't block the view of the stage.
4. You can seat down and enjoy.

But the truly impressive aspects of this DVD are the camera work and the sound mix. During the credits I counted at least 9 camera operators. It is as if you're on the stage with the band! You can watch Gavin Harrison playing from the left, the right, the top, and even from under the drums! I know now where he keeps the set list (down on the left side). You can even read the brand of the drum sticks that he uses.

Same with the other musicians: you can see the keys of the keyboard reflected on Richard Barbieri's glasses; the chords that the under-rated, extraordinaire bass player Colin Edwin chooses so discretely; the craftsmanship of John Wesley's guitar playing, and the artistry of genius composer/arranger/musician/producer/promoter Steven Wilson.

The sound, the mix and the production are of the most impressive quality. Even the PCM Stereo version is so good I hope they release the tracks on CD or as downloads to be able to listen to in the car.

They start out with the full Fear of a Blank Planet album, ala The Incident tour. Impeccable all; "Way Out Of Here" (which can be seen on YouTube) and "Sleep Together" stand out, this last one for the rage and energy that the band displays.

I am a longtime Porcupine Tree fan. I have enjoyed the Blu-Ray on a 42 inch plasma, and a 600 watt surround system with a 15 inch powered sub-woofer. There is simply no better reference disc than this. If you want to show off your system, this is the disc to own! The musicianship is absolutely unmatched, the audio production quality is jaw dropping. I had a friend drop by whilst this was on, he had never heard of Porcupine Tree and his music tastes are grounded in classic blues rock. He was utterly transfixed, commenting that he had never seen any group create a "sound sculpture" quite like this. I have to say, that is a very accurate description of their sound. I have always felt that PT, wield their sound like it is a living, breathing creature, that they can tap into, and unleash it's ferocious power, at any time. This release goes a long way to exemplify that theory. I love seeing them in concert and this release recreates the experience beautifully. Of course, the individual performances are astounding, with kudos to all, but especially to drummer Gavin Harrison, who has won the coveted best drummer award for 4 years running from Modern Drummer magazine. His performance here makes it evident as to why. This is an absolute must own for any serious music fan.

All of the top notch musicianship of this concert performance is finally equaled buy the video and audio of this Blu-ray release shot and edited by long-time collaborator Lasse Hoile. Image quality is superb and this is one of Steven Wilson's best 5.1 mixes to date (which says a lot for the man who earned a Grammy nod for his 5.1 mixes and was commissioned to remix the King Crimson catalog in hi-rez 5.1.) Featuring "Fear of a Blank Planet" (the Quadrophenia of the new millennium)in it's entirety, plus a 2nd set dating songs back to the "Signify" album, this is a wet dream for any Porcupine Tree fan. And as for the rest of the world, they have arrived folks! Refusing to be pidgeon-holed into any one particular category of rock, the band easily segues from Prog Rock to ballads to metal without missing a beat. This release pays tribute to the best quintet of musicians (including long-time live accomplice John Wesley) currently touring. This is the "thinking man's" rock band, one that obligates one to actually invest themselves in the music. Superb. Sublime. Beautifully compelling.

Recived the limited edition DVD / BluRay Gray cover edition from PT web site. I am simply amazed by the quality of the video and sound. I have seen PT several times though not on thier most recent tour but this make me feel as if I was there. If you a PT fan this is well worth the investment and if not what a great introduction to PT. I intend to introduce PT through this DVD

I just received my special edition of the LIVE Anesthetize edition yesterday, and of course I immediately slipped it into my DVD player. This is an awesome production. The taping, editing and of course the sound quality. These four (now five with John Wesley) are some of the best musicians I have ever listened too. The drums are simply amazing... and Richard's keyboard work mesmerizing. I saw Porcupine Tree in LA during the Incident tour last year and it was one of the best shows I have seen; oh how wish I had seen them during the FOABP tour. They cover a wide range of songs adding to the versatility. All Porcupine Tree Fans must get this DVD... plug it in.... put on some headphones... turn out the lights... and get ready for the best two hours of their life... enjoy.

Not only that, but the special edition will come with 2 CDs as well, which will be the audio recording of the concert. I also heard that the 5.1 surround sound is native to the concert and not ported to sound that way. It'll be the first concert I own that is in true 5.1 surround.
