4.0 out of 5 stars pixies unplugged 20 July 2010
Format:DVD
the pixies at their best, I didn't know if their music would transpose into accoustic, but it does brilliantly plus they really enjoy them selves on stage. Highly recommended. 4/5.

By Mr. M. A. Reed TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Two and a half years into their reformation, and the Pixies - now fifteen years since their last record - are still mining the gold of the past for slender treasure. This DVD offers a frankly underwhelming representations of the Pixies live experience.Recording one night (or afternoon) in the life of the band in their entireity, in a distinctly no-frills approach.

"Acoustic : Live In Newport" is, overall, a better bet. Over 80 minutes, the band perform a playful acoustic set encompassing a large portion of their work. A distinctly chummy, intimate feel enscapulates the show on a beachfront. Perhaps surprisingly, the show sees the band bathed in bright daylight, trimmed of frills such as lighing, drama, and the usual gamut of enthusiastic screaming and serrated guitars : armed with only acoustic instruments, the DVD sees a musically exceptional performance, as the band perform relatively straight, minimalist interpretations of the past. Camerawork is unexceptional and unobtrusive (only really being noticable during "Where Is My Mind?" homage to FightClub with blurred vision, or the occasional cutaway to an offstage burger flipper or boat watching the performance from the sea) : the focus clearly on the band and carefully framed to reduce visibility of the otherwise obtrusive Dunkin' Donuts logo that dominates the stage to the point where it's almost invisible. The sound is clear and precise, and the package is technically more than adequate.

"Live In Newport" sees the band at their most human, joking, bantering, and relaxed with their status.

Purchased for an avid Pixies fan, this is a must for anyone who likes the band and particularly if you like the live sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds great! 25 Aug 2011
Format:DVD
The irony about this set is that it sounds so much better when there is no visual.
After a few minutes of viewing there is not much left to see throughout the rest of the set, but having copied the soundtrack to my MP3 player there is no distraction away from the songs or the quality of the performance.
Far from detracting in any way from The Pixies overall sound, the acoustic guitars are clear and crisp as Joey Santiago demonstrates his craft to full effect and Kim's simple baselines are almost menacing as she drives the songs on. Love her voice, pity she doesn't do more leads (Where's my Breeders/Amps CDs!).
So overall it looks a bit bland, but sounds great!
