3 stars Great music, forgettable visuals

Warning! This is not a live concert DVD. This is a DVD version of the studio album Out There with some rather bad, mostly computer generated, visual content added. This visual content is not very interesting and comes across as home made.

The music, however, is very, very good! Indeed, Out There is actually one of Rick's best works ever! I will not comment further on the music here, however, as I will do that for the CD version. The music is the same here as on the CD apart from some added spoken word samples from NASA and longer breaks between tracks. I think the CD version flows slightly better.

If you already have the album on CD, there is really no point in buying this DVD unless you are a major fan or serious collector. The most interesting bit is the bonus feature which is an interview with Rick and some behind the scenes footage from the tour they did in support for the album.

The actual album is an excellent addition to any Prog collection, but this DVD version is not essential. Get the CD instead, it is highly recommended!
