5.0 out of 5 stars REM ENJOYING THEMSELVES 19 May 2004
By Coucho
Having seen REM at Brixton during this tour, I was looking forward to this DVD and was not disappointed. The set list includes a wide range of album tracks and singles, and the sound and film quality is top notch. And the band are really enjoying themselves - this transmits itself to crowd. Needs to be played loud on a good TV with good sound.
The documentary of the band's gigs in Stirling in 1999 is excellent value. It focuses on the town and not the band and includes classic moments like the lady owning a B&B who says that the sudden upturn in business will mean she can buy a new pair of shoes.

5.0 out of 5 stars JUST WHAT I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR! 9 Mar 2004
'Perfect Square' is a great DVD for any R.E.M. fan. This is pretty much a greatest hit's set, with classic's spanning the bands 20+ year history as well as some newer songs. The DVD is visually impressive and very colourful with excellent sound to match. This is the best REM live DVD yet and far superior to 'road movie' from the Monster tour. A must have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 3 Jun 2004
This DVD is very, very good, Stipe and boys pulls out all the stops. This DVD will not only satisfy existing REM fans, but will make a host of new ones. It is unfair to single out certain songs, but walk unafraid, electrolite and Drive are thrilling. Buy it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential 27 May 2004
By A Customer
This is probably the best live concert available on DVD anywhere. This is not merely the "Best of R.E.M." album performed live - this an extended "Best Of" encompassing the band's entire phenomenal back catalogue. As if this wasn't enough, R.E.M. are fearless in improving every song they've ever done. Walk Unafraid is now a loud and angry rock song, Losing My Religion appears to have acquired a different key, Stipe at one point seems to sing some of the lyrics to E-Bow The Letter to the tune of Country Feedback... and more. This live performance is immensely better than the studio equivalents. As always, Stipe has a couple of shaky songs at the start to make you wonder if he's past his vocal prime - then he finds his incredible voice and suddenly you can't tell if he's 46 or 21.

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD for the people 16 Mar 2004
A very good concert, nice to see an invigorated Stipe and co working through their back catalogue with excited Germans in a great venue. There's plenty of hits on here to please casual fans, (and thankfully no 'shiny happy people') and there's some rare gems to please die-hards too. Picture and sound are very good, and the camera work is refreshingly straight-forward, without being boring.
The extra 'home movie' style documentary of their '99 Stirling castle dates is also very good, and frequently halarious, though the audio quality is only so-so.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Gig Bad Camera Work 18 Jun 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Had this been a CD recorded live I would have given it 5 stars, however the camera work, or at least as it was presented, was terrible and only deserves on star at best. Far too many crowd shots and long distance shots. I appreciate a few crowd shots give atmosphere but not this many. Long range shots zooming in and out of the stage such that the band wasn't visible. The only musicians shown were the two guitarists Mills and Buck and Michael Stipe (one a close up of Stipe's shirt from neck to waist), what about the other musicians. There were more shots of the ornamental fountain than the drummer and most of these were the back of his head!

On very few occasions are you able to even focus before the view is changed. There are far too many close in shots when full body shots would have been preferable, where was Stipe leaping around and dancing, he was doing it but close ups don't show it. What about the guitarists playing for at least a few seconds.

I bought this on the basis of the good reviews here and I noticed one refered to the negative American reviews. I just looked at them today and had I bothered to look before I would certainly not have bought this DVD.

If you have an extremely short attention span you may enjoy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars R.E.M. are back Live! 22 Feb 2004
A great band are back with the perfect live show. Everything a fan could ask for - hits and other music spaning from the early 80's to now, including the new "Bad Day" and "Animal". A must have for all R.E.M. fans, especially those who were not able to make it to Europe last summer - like me from Sri Lanka. Go on and buy this one - you will not be disappointed.
