The whole thing is a marvel to hear and to behold.
The concert DVD quality is staggering and it transports me back to a time that I had almost forgotten.
There on stage we still see a young PG who seems a little awkward - that would certainly change on the Secret World Tour.
Worth absolutely every penny and then some. Well done, guys! Thank you.

thank you for re-releasing this album plus the live bonus. I ordered deluxe version directly from your site.
I must, however, mention one thing. Besides the fact that one disc was no longer inside its pocket an moved within the book, ALL discs have some sort of resist on them, which cannot be removed. When I play the discs I always fear that will be some audible or even clear defect. Due to this I not yet play the full DVD of the live material. The first listen of So itself was rather a fearful expectation when and where there will be a click etc... but not an enjoying of the music. Surely, the DVD and CD has to work so some extent to overcome these imperfections.
So, I wonder, how I can remove this residues without scratching the discs.
Personally, I believe if such a premium package is released a great deal of effort has to be put into the manufacturing quality. Does no one check the product quality before it goes onto the market?
After all it does leave a pale taste and has taken a lot of my pleasure away.
I dunno where else I can write about this. I did some some similar comments about this issue in amazon.

this seeems to have ended up in the sale rather quickly.
People were angry over the price before and now it was half price for a time already. If this is on sale in the uk at 40 i might get as I believe thats the price it should have started at.

Just received my box set - very very happy. The DNA disk is a masterpiece. a real insight into how these songs were crafted.
it is worth it to buy the set just for this disk alone IMO!!
DVD next up
Not sure why there is all this grumbling about costs - It is a nice thing to own.
