Emerson, Lake, and Palmer - "40th Anniversary Reunion Concert" DVD

Chronicling the group's 2010 appearance at London's High Voltage Festival, this well-shot, multi-cam concert shows the legendary band's prog-rock indulgences well. Frankly, I was bored. Not being familiar with these guys' flashy and theatrical rock, I found that these guys have the musicianship in abundance, no doubt about it. But the extended solos and noodly nonsense lost me quickly. ELP aren't quite heavy, and their pretentious rock seemed forced and detached here. Not a fan. (Concert One via MVD Visual)
