By amir m
Format:DVD
the classic omd line-up reformed in 2007 and hit the road with a fantastic live presentation of architecture & morality (perhaps the bands greatest album?) plus a greatest hits package. any of you who attended these concerts will know what a special live act omd are. the band have lost none of their onstage brilliance.

does this dvd capture that brilliance? yes ..... just. first off, the sound. some have been commenting on what they describe as a poor dts mix. well, i've listend to the dts and dolby digital 5.1 mixes and the sound is tops on both (dts being the better sounding). i didn't experience any "drop-outs". as for the vocals being too loud - it's subjective and i disagree. those of you who feel the vocals are too prominent in the mix can take down the centre channel volume. that's the flexability of multi-channel.

as for the pictures - one can get a strong flavour of the great stage set and the band's commanding of it. the visuals on the large screens look spectacular and compliment the music perfectly (would loved to have had a fixed wide shot in the dvd extras "angle" function). frontman andy mccluskey's driving gusto and enthusiasm easily shine through. given the constraints of budget and venue the camera work is generally good and the direction fine. my understanding is that the footage was filmed over two nights on a tight budget. given that, the final cut is remarkable. my only gripes are some poor and unimaginative hand-held shots of the audience and the band onstage.

fans and newbies should buy this dvd. for those who attended the concerts in 2007 - this is a must have memento. for everyone else this is an ace primer to go and see the band live. sure, the omd show looks fab on dvd but the band are so, so, so much better in front of you, on stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars OMD DVD Review 20 July 2008
Format:DVD
Initially I was put off buying this DVD due to reviews that mention poor sound, well I took the plunge bought the DVD and am glad I did no problems at all with the sound and picture quality is excellent.

The majority of the first section is dedicated to Architecture & Morality which I must admit is my favourite album, with the rest comprising OMD's hits. Yes the group has aged a little however so have the audience although this DVD is definitely worth the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars As brilliant as ever, if not even better. . . . 29 April 2008
Format:DVD
I was lucky enough to get to see OMD perform again during this latest tour and it was, as always, a fantastic show. It's brilliant to have a DVD to remember it by, it brings back all those emotions experienced during the live concert - I really hope they do another tour so I can take my kids next time around !

They haven't lost any of their old magic and remain one of my 5 all-time favourite groups.

If you like OMD, then I definitely recommend getting this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Gig 10 May 2009
Format:DVD
No problems with the DVD when we played it.

Sadly couldn't make the gigs at the time so this DVD is very welcome indeed.

I must admit that I thought the chances of ever seeing OMD, especially the classic lineup, live again, were extremely remote. For me, this gig just highlights what we, and they, have missed out on in the last couple of decades, they clearly have a great time doing this gig. Still, better late than never!

All the classic OMD tracks are here, and the gig switches between the Andy-led tracks and the Paul-led ones. Andy still sounds great, but still can't dance for @~*%, but who cares, that was always part of the charm! Paul takes a number to get going, but he sounds great again once he's settled.

With the new album on the horizon and hopefully another tour afterwards, this is the perfect DVD to keep you going until we get more live performances. I really can't recommend this enough. I fell in love with OMD in the 90s after the classic lineup had split and despite listening to a few tunes every now and then I never thought I'd get back into them as much as this DVD and the Messages CD/DVD has got me.

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
All other 21 reviews are from the DVD. Never thought that Amazon did not split DVD and BD reviews! The concert was recorded for DVD when BD was something you only had heard about, and only payable for rich people. On BD this concert is a pure 5 star.

AUDIO is perfect. PICTURE is varying a bit, but mostly excellent. All the songs from OMD you want to hear is there, Andy is in high spirit and they have established an fine atmosphere in Ham Apollo. Order it, and make time for nothing else the 2 hour15 it takes. OMD fans are guaranteed a nice time, if you arent a fan u will be!

4.0 out of 5 stars well worth it 22 Aug 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If any of you saw the omd concert at hammersmith you would have really been impressed. The dvd is a must as a souvanier (no pun there)of a really good concert.If any of you missed omd in concert i would suggest that you buy the dvd and play it through a 5.1 system if you have one ,well its the next best thing.Its unfortunate that not all the live stuff was included as they really did play a lot of stuff on the night.Extras include some different /camera version of joan of arc, well a couple of songs.The interviews were interesting and if you remember all the graphics during the concert well theres a bit of chat about the graphics man etc.The best part of the dvd is when you see me cheer near the beginning....only joking......Buy this dvd if you missed omd it really is a great concert.
