Lucky me to have a friend living in London! Combining a visit with this concert excursion I got treated to a real special evening with Porcupine Tree. Outstanding setlist with a few classics that were not played often in the past few years. The venue was sold out and apprently Steven Wilson's parents were also in attendance. The sound in the Forum was top notch, no complaints whatsoever. It made for a memorable evening, hope you enjoy it as well!
The recording turned out fantastic, you can hear the stereo effects (Drums!) all throughout the show, the vocals are clear and present, bass is crisp and up front, the guitars are loud and crunchy and crowd chatter is at a minimum. Room acoustics werent top notch but the sound engineer did a marvelous job.
