4 stars Welcome to the creepshow!

This double live concert DVD was my introduction to Twelfth Night. Well, a song or two by them might have entered my ears before without having left any lasting impressions, but I still decided to check this DVD out and I am very glad that I did! I have since listened to a couple of the band's studio albums and I must say that the live versions found on this DVD are markedly better. It is a very well recorded and filmed show containing what I suppose to be Twelfth Night's very best material, all performed with more energy and punch than on the studio records. The sound and picture quality is high and so is the quality of the performance itself.

The set list includes as many as seven out of the eight songs from the classic Fact And Fiction album originally released in 1982, and a further four songs from the self-titled 1986 album. All of these songs are, to my ears, improved on this live DVD as compared to the original studio versions. The origins of the rest of the songs in the set list is still unknown to me, but most of them are very good. Fans of IQ and Arena will enjoy this for sure!

There are six people on stage (including Roy Keyworth and Dean Baker from fellow Neo-proggers Galahad) creating a rich and powerful sound. Every instrument is played with skill and passion, including the emotional vocals.

This DVD is just an excellent introduction to Twelfth Night and an excellent addition to any Neo-Prog collection. Highly recommended!
