The bad news: Whoever edited this thing made poor use of the available footage. For some reason they change cameras every two seconds with no regard for what was taking place on stage. It's annoying and a shame some thought wasn't put into the final product.
Picture quality = Good
Concert - Excellent
First let me say that the 5.1 DTS mix is with out a doubt, about the best I think I have heard. Nick Davis did a fantastic job on this.
Secondly, the picture quaility is not excellent, but is good for what its worth. The reasons for the picture quality is a couple. At the time when this was filmed, they used state of the art High Definition - Analog cameras that only held 1 hour film reels. We are lucky that this even exist on DVD. There is quite a story behind the band borrowing a Sony HD machine, only one of four ever made and hardly in existence. The picture quality had to be compressed (I believe) from the HD source so there is some loss. Plus, as the night falls, those particular camera's didn't do real well in low light conditions so it is obvious that the picture isn't as good as the concert goes on. I actually wish that the concert was delayed a few years and hoped that the High Definintion would reach HD DVD's, and then to the market place.. that would've been a real treat. Also, it is nice that this is in widescreen be default.
Lastly, I think no matter what you like or dislike about Genesis, this is a good setlist from the 80's primarily. They are very energetic and put on a great show.
Now, one reviewer already posted but some overlooked this: That is that the In The Cage medley was infact played at Wembley, all four nights in a row, to all 70,000+ each night. However, the band decided that the camera should get the film reel's changed at that point in the show so they didn't have to take a break, and the entire show minus the ITC medley would fit on two reel's per camera, hence cutting costs down on filming the show. The thought was that why film it when it has been filmed several times before. It is unfortunate, but done. My opinion is that this is very much worth the $10 that Amazon is selling it for!
