John Wetton Is Such A Great Performer
checkyeah | Fort Worth, Texas USA | 04/06/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While I loved this concert DVD, I want MORE! Of course, I'm more of a John Wetton fan than a Steve Hackett fan but Hackett is brilliant in this show. I think it would be great if Wetton took a page from Hackett's book and does a show like this one of his own -but revolving around his material. The only drawback is the fact that "Watcher of the Skies" was the best performance in this concert but was played at the very beginning which is like having dessert first. The way the stage is lit at the beginning is awe-inspiring, though. The stage is shot with a Rembrandt-like golden light and the floor is covered in billowing dry ice clouds. It looks almost like the band is performing on top of a cloud at sunrise!For those who want great music played by great musicians, this is for you. For those who want a band that prances around the stage, this is NOT for you, but maybe I can recommend something by NSync or Brittney Spears..."
Great performance / Disappointing DVD

"The entire concert: song selection, musicians and camera work were all excellent. The less than sharp video quality and the lack of 5.1 audio were disappointing. Maybe I've been spoiled by the incredible audio and video quality of YesSymphonic DVD, but I was expecting more from this.If you are a fan of "Classic" Genesis and Steve Hackett, it's a worthwhile purchase, but the DVD seems to have been simply transfered from video tape without taking advantage of the capabilities offered in the DVD format."
3 DVDs - all excellent - all different

(5 out of 5 stars)

"There are three DVDs to date form Steve. They are all excellent and they are all different.

It goes like this:

Progressive rock, less focus on Steve, more vocals, great classic gennesis tunes with vocals intact.

South America:
Progressive jazz/rock/classical, more focus on Steve, and as Steve says and I agree on of the most precise bands he has ever played with.

Classical trio, with just three musicians, it's hard not to focus on Steve who is just as talented classically, if not more, as he is talented with other styles. There is some mind numbing classical technique here.

The fact that these three DVDs are so different allowed me to buy all three without having to see the same concert with different musicians.

Great show wiith great musicians

"If you like to hear a compilation of good old prog songs of your favorite bands, this DVD is for you. If you like Genesis,King Crimson and projects from old members of these bands, you got to have this video. It is very well shot and has a beautiful light show. The music is simply great with songs from Hackett's solo stuff, John Wetton, King Crimson and Genesis. And on the extras, you got 20 minutes of rehersal."
