Diehard fans of the Pretties who missed the web broadcast of this gig were understandably disappointed, until this dvd was released. Then, I imagine, they (we) all rushed to buy this, hoping to see a bit of musical history being made. I, for one, was disappointed. The sound quality of this recording leaves an awful lot to be desired, and the camera work isn't great either.
Then there are the interviews....if you were hoping for some startling or exciting stuff here, you'll be disappointed again. They were interesting, but lacking in something, and left me wanting something more.
Musically, this dvd does not do the band justice. After the initial clamour from those who missed the great event when it went out on the web, the band did a repeat performance, for real, at the Festival Hall in London. That show was astounding,
(I was there) and made up for what this recorded performance lacks. This band have been a force to be reckoned with for so long, that they, and their legions of fans, deserve something better than this to remember them by.
Here's a suggestion: buy "Resurrection" as well, play it a few times, and imagine how good this dvd SHOULD have been.....
