A great choice of songs - but marred by poor sound, some very dodgy vocals-mixing (on the mix desk?), clunky camerawork (though admittedly it was a difficult venue to film in, I would have thought), and Tennant's tense and self-conscious stage presence. Those used to the hi-polish and expansive "soundscape" of the PSB sound may be disappointed at the constraints that everyone here seems to be under. Worth the price of admission, though, for the excellent and well-made short documentary that's also on the disk. The documentary is in black and white. Close-ups make Tennant distinctly resemble Quentin Crisp, at times!

All previous releases of this have screwed up sound in 5.1 mode which sounds horrific. It was known at the time to be a fault with the VHS master, and then the DVD. Will this release be a re-master of the sound or the original cranky version ?

Pity the sound was so bad - the gig was absolutley superb. I love PSB live - but the small venue worked really well to enjoy the music, rather than the spectacle which you get with other PSB gigs. Again, pity the music is spoiled on past DVD and video releases.

Following on the (far from convincing) dreams of grandeur of the "MCMLXXXIX" (1989) and "Performance" (1991) tours, the Pet Shop Boys went onto a far more approachable and entertaining style of live performance with "Discovery" (in 1994). The two-and-a-half week residency at the prestigious but small Savoy Theater in London, known as "Somewhere" (1997), was a natural continuation of reducing the amount of on-stage distraction to focus on one thing: the music. After the army of dancers, singers and video projections from their earlier efforts, "Somewhere" was down to four (4) people onstage only: the Boys, the fabulous singer Sylvia Mason-James and the superb dancer and choreographer Les Child.
As for the video projections, Sam Taylor-Wood divided the stage in three sections: the center stage, where the concert would take place, and two side panels, where a late night party would be projected in the course of the show, and where Chris and Neil (one for each side of the stage) would appear from or disappear to, depending on their need to perform onstage.
This simple gimmick creates a rather spectacular effect.
As for the show itself, it is probably the best PSB live concert so far. Keeping the philosophy of "Discovery" but with even less effects, the "Somewhere" set would promote the most "lyrical" side of the PSBs, while "Discovery" was more of a dance-stomping effort.

As a result, "Somewhere", in a resolutely short gig (slightly more than an hour) avoids the traps of the big show-stoppers (no "West End Girls", no "Always on my mind") and focuses on beautiful, less played masterpieces of the ever-growing Pet Shop Boys canon. As a result, it is fantastic to hear "The Truck Driver and His Mate", the fantastic B-side of "Before" - while "Before" itself is not even played.

...the audio on this DVD is just dreadful. It has no depth, the vocals are mixed way into submission, and it just sounds tinny, hollow and makes Neil sound like he was recorded from the car park. It's a shame as the show itself is quite good with some nice surprise tracks (The Truckdriver and His Mate) and some good vocals (when you can hear them).

Even die hard fans would be hard pressed to love this purely for the por audio. The doco is interesting enough but suffers the same audio problems.
