5.0 out of 5 stars
front row seats, 13 Nov. 2008
If you've never had the opportunity to be in the front row at an Arctic Monkeys gig then this is what you are missing. i've been near the front at a number of their early gigs (spitting distance from the bassist) and this video took me right back to that moment immediately. it's almost like being one of the band members - the cameras must have been right on the stage with them. it's intense. they're not the most talkative band (i kind of like between-song-banter) but that is a mere quibble. the energy from this video is intense. i have surround sound and cranked it up, turned out all the lights, sat back and enjoyed the show. It is so great to have a real CONCERT vid rather than all the back and forth to the crowd to remind you that you should be enjoying it (which i always thought was basically like laugh tracks on sitcoms). This way, it stands on its own two feet and it stands proud. Man! I'm gonna go watch it again now.
