The Time Machine tour was highlighted by the celebration of the Moving Pictures's CD 30th Anniversary. The band played the entire cd at the beginning of the second set. Also they decided to play back some songs that have not been play for a long time, like "Marathon" and "Time Stand Still". For the first time, we can hear the song "Presto", live. The rest of the set contains classics songs covering all the decades, including the two new songs; "BU2B" and Caravan". The playing of the entire Moving Pictures cd was a opportunity to hear for the first time in 30 years, "Camera Eye". But at the same time, we have to endure again the same songs that the bands put on all his tours, i am talking about "Tom Sawyer" and "Limelight", who are favorites among the majority of fans, but not for me. The two new songs are not great songs, but had to be put on the set list here.

For the performance, the band was full of energy, happy to be there, if we take a look at the cameras that was catching the looks and funny faces that each member through at each other, especially obvious in the song "Free Will", with Neil and Alex. The editing filming is excellent by giving us some camera shots at the right spot and at the right moment.

The picture quality on the Blu-Ray is very good, maybe not as good as Snakes and Arrows, but this is not a issue here. The DTS-HD sound is excellent with a full surround sound and a clear mix of all instruments. As for the extras, it's rather short and not memorable. I would have prefer to see more recent footage instead of some old archives stuff where the picture quality is poor, like they did on Snakes and Arrows.

So this Blu-Ray is excellent, because it's made by a great band that have survived together all these years with a impeccable musicianship. I can only be a little fussy about the set list, that's what happened when you listen too much to a band's music... Recommended!
