I'm thrilled with the DVD's setlist. Pretty much all the rarities and old songs that were played at the Tilburg concert that I wanted to hear made it. I'm especially delighted to see Drown With Me on there.

The two tracks that didn't make it to the DVD setlist but were played at the Tilburg concerts were Stars Die and Prodigal.

Prodigal is still included as an audio bonus track on the CD edition that will be included on the special edition of the DVD.

Since Stars Die is still being played on the current tour, hopefully it'll make it onto whatever DVD they plan to release for it. Perhaps that's the intention in leaving it off, as the band seem quite conscious of not repeating much material at all between DVDs. I'm quite impressed that this DVD has NONE of the big pre-FOABP songs. No Trains, no Lazarus, no Blackest Eyes, no Sound Of Muzak.

Yeah, all of those four big songs are included on the Arriving Somewhere DVD, so no harm done.

I just hope that some early gems like The Sky Moves Sideways, Fadeaway, Always Never, Nine Cats or Synesthesia will get a DVD treatment in the future (maybe there is a 1995 show in the vault somewhere?).

Oh, and Stupid Dream is as of now vastly underrepresented. I find it weird that Piano Lessons was played so rarely live. That would be on my top list of must-see songs live.

I can't wait for the DVD. I didn't go for the special edition this time (gasp, shock horror) as I will be perfectly content with the retail release.

It would be awesome to hear Synesthesia live, but I am not holding my breath!

Somebody needs to coerce SW into doing a set featuring Piano Lessons, Fadeaway, Synesthesia, Yellow Hedgerow Dreamscape ... and LINTON SAMUEL DAWSON.

Fuck yes. The Pacman song.

Don't forget Jupiter Island and Footprints (I still cannot decide whether these two tracks are utterly ridiculous or simply fantastic...probably both).

After hearing Fadeaway again last night, this could be the most gorgeous song Mr.Wilson has ever written.

I'm never quite sure whether Fadeaway or Piano Lessons is my favourite Porcupine Tree song. The last few months, I've been favouring Fadeaway but Piano Lessons is my traditional #1. Hell, the entire sequence of Small Fish/Burning Sky/Fadeaway is nothing short of mindblowing.

And if we're talking early stuff, And The Swallows Dance Above The Sun is genuinely, without any trace of irony, in my PT top ten. Absolutely love it. The "every time I turn around" verse at the end is magic.

My number one would be Normal. I can imagine how this one could seem as fucked up and kind of chaotic to some, added to the fact that it is an alternate version of a song already released (great one as well), but it's like The Best of Porcupine Tree in 7 minutes. The funky but crazy psychedelic riffs, the psycho metal interlude, the wonderful vocal harmonies in the end... It's easily something I'm mostly looking forward to on the upcoming DVD.

Agreed about Swallows (well, not the top 10 part, they simply have too many amazing songs). This Long Silence is another one I appreciate from that first album (if it is indeed an album, more like a compilation of sorts).

I remember when you parodied that ...

My absolute favourite PT song is Pure Narcotic. Aside of that, I just have to go with Futile. Among the early stuff, definitely Fadeaway.

Still don't know how something like Linton Samuel Dawson makes the cut on the "official" debut over an epic like No Reason To Live, No Reason To Die. I'm assuming it was a time issue, but still. I'd take a couple of the songs off for that classic.
