"I'm a collector of tons of music and Estradasphere is in my top ten favorite artists. This DVD is ESSENTIAL to any collection of music/dvd's, you name it. Why is it so good? They play with such excellent musicanship that you constantly pull a Wayne/Garth: "I'm not worthy!!!! in your mind. I mean seriously these guys are spectacular. I can play this music to anyone in my family. Throw a little chopin (they do a a cover) for my mom, jazz for my dad, metal for my young brother. These guys can do it all. I think they appeal to me because they play all my moods and I love that they play for a long time!!! They are fresh all the time it seems like. You even get Hunger Strike with new twists that makes you hungry for more. This will SATISFY you beyond music heaven, believe me."

"As a casual fan of the band, I picked this up mostly because of the glowing review on this site. I expected them to play well, but I had no idea they were this good. This live show blows the albums away!
The manic, mad-scientist-looking violinist steals the show at the beginning, but the lead guitarist is able to show off his jazz soloing skills on many occassions. The drummer plays everything, hanging back with a jazz rhythm most of the time but using double-kick beats and even blastbeats sparingly. Every player has a huge range and can go from jazz to metal within seconds, then back to a gypsy-influenced or country melody.
The real treat for me was the encore version of "Hunger Strike." Although the piece didn't do much for me when I listened to the album version, the live version is just incredible. Lengthy solos flesh out the piece for 40 minutes, and this is a great thing. The drum solos make me wet."
