Those who claim Biffy Clyro were a better band when they played shitholes are idiots. This, their first live CD/DVD, is proof that Biffy are one of the best live bands around today. The 19 tracks recorded at Wembley Arena are a blistering account of the night in themselves, but the DVD is really the only reason to own this.

It’s beautifully shot and Simon Neil playing ‘Machines’ solo under a glittering chandelier is particularly moving. There’s also a great drinking game to be had in taking a shot whenever bassist James Johnston appears in slow motion. It’ll kill you, but at least you’ll go out watching a band at the top of their game.
