five stars for the Stones, but ...
on 12 January 2004
The Stones are brilliant (even though they aren't really getting *all* the way down through most of it) but I'm frustrated by the filming, which seems pretty clueless as to who/what's worth focussing on. The eye candy gets a woeful overdose of attention - I found I was even closing my eyes at times in order to concentrate on the music, which kind of defeats the purpose of a DVD, doesn't it. Okay okay, Mick sure is something, but I want to see a *lot* more than just the front man.
Apart from that, and apart from the fact that the sound gets weirdly uneven in the last quarter of the disk, it's a fine show, and I'm glad to have it, but there have been much better-done Stones concert films before and since.
