Excellant "later" period K.C. in concert.
Although, I did have trouble navigating through the
extras (still couldn't get the "create your own band
feature to work right).
Awesome sound, although I believe it's set up through
a 5.1 scheme (which worked great in my main system in
the living room), but I could barely hear it in my bedroom
set-up, which is just a cheap dvd player running through
and old 2 channel stereo(it sounded like just the surround
Anyone know how to access the "hidden" features (and/or
know what they are)..??

"This was the first King Crimson DVD I have purchased, an I am seriously considering buying more.
It was very exciting to see the group live, especially this being the Double Trio, which I believe is the best line-up out of KC's on-again off-again revolving door history.
Robert Fripp is probably one of THE eccentric figures in rock. I can't think of another musician that would go out of his way to shun the spotlight ONSTAGE. He sits upstage between the drummers, shrouded in darkness with occasional glimpses of his deceptively complex shredding.
Adrian Belew is a great showman and a guitar WIZARD. Keep an eye out on "Thrak" for a "bit" of fun!
Tony Levin is just awe-inspiring. Bass, Stick, bowed upright bass, etc. Nice pipes, too. Just an all-around solid player.
Trey Gunn keeps modest but deadly. Wears a good shirt.
Bill Bruford is yellow as all get-out, and his playing can be a little "hey-look-at-me" at times, but he's still one of the best boppers about.
Pat Mastelotto keeps a good backbeat and has little to do sometimes besides shake a maraca or strike a drumhead. He seems to be having the most fun, besides Adrian.
The DVD itself is curious. The menu can be a little annoying, and the graphics are atrocious. Still, Fripp's essays are engaging, as are Tony's home-movies. Sound is excellent.
I recommend to even KC newcomers."
