If I think this DVD is great, then why 4 stars? Why not 5? Well, yes it is great but there is a few minor things wrong with it that knock a star off it. I'll get onto these in a minute, first I'd like to mention the good things.
Yes, I'm a PCD fan. I don't care what you think, I love the Dolls! I got excited when I heard they were releasing a DVD, especially as it has live performances on it.
When I say live, I mean LIVE. No miming for these girls, the 6 songs and the interlude they do is all completely utterly live. Nicole proves how amazing her voice is, I wasn't such a fan of hers beforehand but after watching her sing "Feelin Good" I now ADORE her voice, she is superb. Melody and Carmit have also proven they should be given more lead vocals. All the hits are included on this live performance, and most have dance breakdowns in the middle and sound fabulous live. The Dolls sound great singing live, anybody who says they can't sing should give this a watch. The "Show Me What You Got" interlude is one of my favourite parts - the Dolls all sing about each other and do a little dance by theirselves - a highlight is Ashley putting her foot over her head! I was very impressed with the Dolls live performance, but the crowd wasn't so enthused, they didn't scream or sing along or anything. It kind of ruined the vibe.
The next bit on the DVD is the videos - they include all 6 videos to the singles. My fave video is "I Don't Need A Man" - it's funny, girly and pink and the Dolls look amazing! All the videos are great though. Also included is behind the scenes footage for the "Beep" and "Buttons" video -in the "Buttons" footage there is a segment of Nicole singing "Feelin Good" with Snoop Dogg and she changes the lyrics to be about him, it's very cute.
The third bit is a section where the Dolls introduce themselves - they each have a video segement where they talk about how they made it into the PCD and the other Dolls talk about them. I felt like I knew a bit more about them afterwards! The girls seem very sweet and real, and like such nice people. There's also a segment on how the PCD got started and about how their music is made.
Now what are the bad things? Well, like a previous reviewer said, you can't skip the intro when you first start the DVD - you have to sit through it, and it gets annoying at times. The behind the scenes footage during the live performances was also mentioned - I'd like to see the whole performance of a song not just bits of it. And I think even though the stuff on the DVD is great, there's not enough.
But don't let those things put you off, this is worth it just for the live gig! The Dolls are talented and it definitely shows on this DVD - they seem genuinelly nice and friendly. The Dolls RULE!
