Great show with a beautiful 5.1 mix!
on October 8, 2012
This show is made up of mostly tracks from Steven Wilson's "Grace For Drowning " CD. I saw this show in Toronto and was very impressed. Enjoyed it much better on the Blu Ray thou. Why? I am not packed into an sold out club and I don't have to stand for three hours. But mainly because of the 5.1 mix. We all know Steven Wilson is the King of the 5.1 mix and he has not let us down here. The moodiness of the music gets a whole new life when heard in 5.1. That along with the images shot onto either screens or the band themselves really pulls you into the experience. Sound wise this is in my top five Blu rays. You might be thinking that you already have his last CD in 5.1 why do I need a live version. Where the original album is great but there is always something that comes with a live performance. Even now a days where through digital technology you can reproduce just about any noise on stage there is just a feeling that comes across when it's a group of people playing live and not building it up track by track in the studio. Don't get me wrong this concert is performed to perfection but the fact that it's being played live does come through! If you do not know Steven Wilson's music either Solo or with the multiple Band's he plays with this might be worth checking out. If you like Radiohead, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Camel, etc. This is probably for you!
