"Wow...can't believe there aren't any other reviews here yet! I have been waiting for a DVD of these guys live and finally we have it...and released at the same time as The Flaming Lips live DVD...someone upstairs must really be liking me!! Anyway, I have seen the Spree live and I must say it is an event that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime...and now they can. This is a great DVD and one that captures the true essence of a Spree show. You will find it hard not to smile and will be fighting the urge to get up and dance or jump around as these guys do constantly. They are such a class act and Tim is a fantastic musician and the consumate front man and the rest of the Spree offer equal entertainment value. Spine tingling moments amongst beautiful melodic noise fests. Not one dud moment here...One Man Show is stunning...Two Thousand Places is brilliant...and the closure of When the Fool Becomes the King is uplifting.
They are all having a ball..a party on stage and we're all invited!!
Essential..buy this now.(Only gripe is the omission of a few tracks such as Soldier Girl and Suitcase Calling however this is always the way).
Oh, and buy The Fragile Army too...absolute GOLD!!"
Almost as good as being there

"I have been a fan of Polyphonic Spree ever since I saw them open for David Bowie in early 2004. I am fortunate enough to have the DVD of their Japanese performance that was included with Together We're Heavy. This one from Austin only adds to my memories, but nothing can top my memory from The Fragile Army tour. Catch them soon on tour!!!
As usual, their music makes one want to leap up out of their chair and dance with happy tears in their eyes. The Austin show is no exception. However, Austin was at the top of my list for possible relocation until viewing this mostly stodgy audience on this DVD. Are most of them dead? Were they expecting country music and no one told them? Only a few fans in the front show any emotion! What is the matter with the rest of the fans? How on earth can Austin call itself the live music capital of the world?
Actually, this all inspires me. If someone appears to have just died, don't call the coroner! Just play some Polyphonic Spree for them and hopefully their eyes will flutter just before a big smile appears on their face. If not, then they are truly dead!"
