Live At The Royal Albert Hall [DVD] [NTSC]
Live At The Royal Albert Hall [DVD] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ Erasure

3.0 out of 5 stars One for the fans only, 31 Dec. 2012
To be perfectly honest i was rather dissapointed with this DVD. Although the camera work and picture quality were both fine, i found the vocal sound pretty dreadful ( not just Andy's microphone but the backing girls (The Gazelles) mikes as well ). I kept on wishing throughout the performance that somebody would turn the microphone volume down. I had no major complaints about the electronic music , except that it seemed to be lacking a little in bass punch....... Now onto the song selection, whilst ok , were missing several of my favourite erasure hits, particularly "Always", which i consider to be one of their very best songs. Performances were good, but sadly gave the impression that the duo had seen better days.
If you are a real fan of Erasure, i guess you will want to get this anyway, and although performance wise it's very acceptable, they have made better DVDs than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars essentially Mike Oldfield, 30 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mike Oldfield: Exposed [DVD] (DVD)
Having been a big Mike Oldfield fan for many many years now purchasing all his LPs and CDs as soon as they became available,i always looked forward to what the great man would release next. So of course having listened to Incantations live over the years and buying all his VHS and DVDs i never even realised there was live footage of his Incantations until recently so i managed to get the DVD without paying the ridiculous prices some sellers ask for, and i am glad i did. I would rate picture quality at 2/5 ,sound quality 3/5, but performance wise its 5/5 and running time of nearly 2 hours is pretty good too. Sure technically he has made better DVDs, but this DVD really does show Mike at his musical best. Highly recommended .
