Enjoyed every part of it. I just wish it was longer!

The insights about some songs were very interesting. It was mostly fun seeing them joking around and in that cramped studio, but I always get a bit emotional when Damon and Graham talk about their relationship so that part was the highlight for me.

The footage of Hong Kong gives a glimpse of the city and I wish they made some kind of urban symphony using more of those images and The Magic Whip as the soundtrack, because it seems as it really would fit and capture the feeling of the place.

Also it made me crave for an entire "The Magic Whip: Instrumental" record :lol:

I also want to hear the raw material from their Hong Kong jams. "The Magic Whip: Rarities"

Also I need the live version of those songs "The Magic Whip: Live"

I am obsessing a bit too much with this bunch of songs. It's been so long without new material and now I want MOOORE :lol:

It'd have been a nice extra for the album! Probably it wasn't included because of the rushed nature of everything regarding the record, but maybe in the future they release a LIVE DVD and it's included there. And we'll be ready to buy that ;)

What do people think about the possibility of hyde park being on dvd again? Obviously 2009 was a reunion and 2012 was the Olympics but this, I suppose, is a "normal" show. It'd be good if it was filmed. I went to bst hyde park last year and I noticed all bands were filmed but nothing's come of it yet. Maybe it was just for their own purpose

Don't know about Hyde Park, but I think there will definitely be a live dvd release of the Magic Whip era!
