5.0 out of 5 stars Josh delivers again!, 17 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stages Live (Audio CD)
After having seen Josh Groban on his 'Stages' tour in Manchester last November, I was desperate to own a DVD of the concert and was delighted when the release of 'Stages Live' was announced. For fans of musical theatre you will not be disappointed, Josh delivers each song with his familiar powerful but seemingly effortless style, 'What I Did For Love' and 'Anthem' in particular, make the hairs stand up on the back of my neck!

There are only two disappointments on this DVD; Josh doesn't sing the fabulous 'Gold Can Turn to Sand', featured on the original CD and for me, Kelly Clarkson's performance seemed poor especially compared to the fantastic voice of Louise Dearman who appeared in all of Josh's UK dates. That said, I would 100% recommend this CD/DVD to anyone who loves Josh Groban and musical theatre.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very intelligent clock!, 16 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this clock after years of searching for one to replace my existing extremely illuminating clock which was so bright I had to cover the display at night.

As soon as this clock is plugged into the mains it promptly sets the time, date and year itself.

At night, the clock display automatically dims as the room darkens; very clever and it has multiple options for setting the alarm for weekdays, weekends etc. Many of the clocks I had looked at were garish and looked cheap, but not this one, with its white top and silver back it blends in well with the decor in my bedroom. Very pleased with my purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Stunning, 26 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Both Sides Now (Audio CD)
Michaels' latest album is for me, a fan who has all his other solo albums, the best by far to date. This CD is perfect for a cosy night in; full of beautifully crafted songs all delivered with class and clarity accompanied with style by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.

`Both Sides Now' features a delightful musical arrangement including beautiful saxophone solos by Snake Davis.

`Perfect Song', a new song written by Lord Lloyd Webber and Leslie Bricusse will stay with you after the first listen; such a catchy but lovely song `perfectly' delivered!

`Suddenly', the new song from the Les Miserables Movie is another heartbreakingly beautiful song.

Michael delivers the Dolly Parton classic, `I Will Always Love You' in its original style; staying away from the big belty Whitney Houston version preferring to keep it pared right back which is perfect and again delivered beautifully.

For those of you wanting something a bit more upbeat there are the Leona Lewis classic hit `Run' and another new song given to Michael by Tim Rice from the new musical From Here To Eternity called `Fight the Fight' another great and very catchy tune.

Most albums have the odd song which is skipped on the playlist, not this one; there isn't a bad song on here.

The album closes with a rendition of Love Changes Everything which has been given a new twist and features the operatic vocals of Il Divo this is the perfect album - just buy it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just buy it!!!!!, 28 Nov. 2010
I received the DVD yesterday and immediately unwrapped and watched it. From start to finish the staging and production of the DVD is simply stunning. Any reservations about Alfies' performance as Jean Valjean flew out the window after the very first note; he has to be THE BEST Valjean I have ever seen and the emotion he demonstrates at the end made me shed a tear or two!

In my opinion the only disappointments were Norm Lewis as Javert; so many more brilliant actors have played this role (Phillip Quast where were you?!)and the out-of-place Nick Jonas as Marius. Michael Ball showed just how it should be done when the original cast joined the Concert cast on stage at the end.

The quartet of Valjeans singing 'Bring Him Home' was beautiful and cleverly put togther.

Altogether a magical night captured brilliantly on DVD - just go and buy it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Show, 4 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anyone who has been to any of Michaels' concerts on this Tour will know what a treat this DVD will be to own - I have been to two shows and can't wait to get my hands on a copy. I only hope they do not remove any material (as they did on a previous video :-( )

5.0 out of 5 stars 'One Amazing Voice - One Amazing Night!!!', 20 Nov. 2007
Michael never ceases to amaze fans with his repertoire and this concert is certainly no exception. From the beautiful 'High Flying Adored' (Lloyd Webber) and the heart-breaking 'Tell Me It's Not True' (Russell) to the more surprising songs including Amy Winehouse's 'Rehab', Scissor Sister's 'Don't Feel Like Dancin'', and Gnarls Barkleys 'Crazy', Michael makes each song his own.

Whether you prefer songs from the musicals, old classics or more uptempo pop numbers Michael packs them all into this DVD. He even performs the duet 'A Little Fall of Rain' (Les Miserables) with a very talented 16 year-old called Sian Crisp who 'won' the opportunity to sing with Michael for the princely sum of £25,000 !!!

Backed by his usual complement of backing singers and band this DVD is superbly produced and the sound quality leaves you feeling as though Michael is actually performing in your living room (if only......!)
