4.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad..., 28 Dec. 2003
First impressions of the DVD are good, from the good quality concert in terms of presentation (good picture, sound and lighting), and the nice choice in extras - the 5.1 mix of Homeworld (The Ladder) is good and a nice addition to the gig.
I've only watched 3 songs (Homeworld, Owner of a Lonely Heart and Roundabout) just to test it out, and overall it's as good as can be expected, altho I would like to kill whoever decided to mix in footage from Homeworld (the PC game from Sierra) over the live performance of Homeworld (The Ladder). Hmmm
Still a good buy for a tenner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly remarkable!, 2 Sept. 2001
This review is from: Stranger In This Town (Audio CD)
Upon listening to 'Stranger In This Town' I was truly breathless after hearing not only Richie's peerless skill and excellence on guitar, but also his magnificent vocals. After my first listen, it has already become THE album that I would take with me if stranded on a desert island!
Richie Sambora is a truly under-rated genius. Every track on this album is absolutely stunning - as good, if not better than anything Bon Jovi have ever done (although they are brilliant!)
The man himself, Eric Clapton, guests on "Mr Bluesman", contributing a fine guitar solo (although, if I may say so, nothing in comparison to what Richie might have played), and Richie's backing band consists of nearly all the Bon Jovi band members.
It is worth reiterating what a great singer Richie is aswell. After hearing him on backing vocals on Bon Jovi records, it is a great opportunity for him to show off his Jon Bon Jovi-equalling-and-surpassing vocal talents. His voice soars to magnificent heights on many of the tracks.
Songs like: "Stranger ...", "Ballad Of Youth", "Mr. Bluesman" and "Father Time" prove to any disbelievers that this man is one of the greats.
I seriously advise you to buy this brilliant, brilliant album, and sample just how good rock music can be! 'Stranger In This Town' is a modern, undiscovered classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars They don't call him 'Sir' for nothing!, 2 Sept. 2001
This review is from: Flaming Pie (Audio CD)
'Flaming Pie' is a classic album. The Beatles were excellent, Wings were good, but it just goes to show with this album that Sir Paul McCartney can still cut it!
The best songs are: "The World Tonight," "Somedays", "Souvenir" and "Beautiful Night" - they are classic Macca! He really is on top form.
Obviously, there are a few duds, though. "Used To Be Bad" sounds like the spontaneous jam that it is meant to be and "If You Wanna" features some atrocious lyrics. But generally, 'Flaming Pie' is an absolute joy of an album - musically accomplished and excellent, and lyrically extremely refreshing!
Even Ringo crops up on a few tracks, and the producer Jeff Lynne, makes sure that McCartney is largely left in control of the way it sounds - and boy, does it sound good!
Sit back, relax, dim the lights, grab your acoustic guitar and spend an evening with the greatest living legend of all time!
