Cutting-Edge Performance!
Russ Bellinger | Bradenton, Florida USA | 03/15/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Redemption are simply awesome! This DVD proves it. The songs are intense and burning and the lyrics cut like a razor right to the soul. The guitar duets smoke and the arrangements are beyond control! I really love these guys. They have the amazing potential to become equally as potent as Dream Theater with a twist of their own style. Ray Alder's voice has never sounded better. They play many of my favorite tracks such as "Sapphire" and "The Death Of Faith And Reason". Not only do you get this superb show with this DVD but you also get a surprise tour movie set to an unreleased instrumental track that is very, very good. The guys get pretty hilarious and insane on the tour. Lots of other famous guests attend the shows. Mike Portnoy throws a birthday cake in Ray Alder's face! Plus you get the video for "Bleed Me Dry" which is very cool. AND you also get a CD of the show. This pakage is a real bargain!"

"Essential for any prog metal library. Redemption nail a killer show at Prog Power and that performance is captured with a great live shoot, and impressive sound quality, with bonus material every proghead will not want to miss.

I was anxious that this might not be a great production, aurally or visually, but that quickly was forgotten as soon as I hit play. The mix is near perfect for this type of venue, and the camera work is personal enough that you feel like you are at the gig.

Ray is sublime as always, the darker character his voice has taken on is rich and impassioned. As big a fan as I am of his jaw-dropping debut on No Exit (20 years ago!), we both have aged, and I find I prefer his style and tone now more than ever. For many of us that have grown up with his incredible voice over the years, I'm probably not the first to draw the parallel of "fine wine".

Nick, Bernie, Sean, Greg and Chris tear through the set with amazing skill. If you want perfect rendition of the recording, you won't find it, nor should you look be looking for it. The human element adds power and depth to the performance that would be missed in a note-for-note recital.

The bonus features on the DVD push this into 5-star territory for me. There are some absolutely great captures (Portnoy face-caking Ray for his birthday on stage) backstage goofiness that shows what a great time they had on the road, and some stuff for the archives. The stand out for me is the still of Jim Matheos sitting on a couch with Frank Aresti and Ray. Ray is wearing a DT shirt. I distinctly remember, 20 years ago, Jim and Frank were on Headbanger's Ball interviewing for the Perfect Symmetry release ... and Jim was wearing a Dream Theater shirt. I had no idea who DT was (nor did many at that time), and the rest, they say, is history.

All of this to the backdrop of a previously unreleased 11-minute instrumental epic; what more could you ask for?"
Great progressive rock band

Must Have For Music Lovers!

"This DVD is a near perfect production. The band performs an outstanding set. The sound is phenomenal and the video great. Anyone who loves live, heavy music should see this show. They feature one of the best rhythm sections you will see/hear. Buy the CDs and support the band!

After having watched this DVD several dozen times... Get It!"
