    UN-BE-LIE-VA-BLE !!! Not only this is an outstanding musical achievement, but this blu-ray edition comes with over 3 (THREE!) hours of material. And I only paid eleven bucks!
    The sound quality is really terrific when listening to the DTS 5.1 track. I very much appreciate all the photographs that come with it, which by themselves, tell a compelling story as well. The edition comes with FLAC and MP3 free version (via code), which is another perk.
    I have not watched the documentary yet, but I am so looking forward to it!
    Thank you Steven Wilson for caring so much for consistently putting out high quality stuff, and for pleasing your followers so graciously, each and every time!
