4.0 out of 5 stars A must have for Stream of Passion fans, 2 May 2009

This review is from: Stream Of Passion - Live In The Real World [2006] [DVD] (DVD)
I purchased this DVD after listening to Embrace the Storm (the band's first album) and was just amazed at the live performance. I am very pleased to say that Marcela's voice withstands and excels under the scrutiny of a live performance.

Whilst the live performance is brilliant the DVD is somewhat let down by the coverage of the tour. Being a fan of Within Temptation I am perhaps spoiled by the extensive coverage offered by them on their DVD's; however the coverage on this DVD just leaves you wanting to know more.

However this DVD is definitely worth having, if only for the live performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Searching For That Sixth Star...., 6 May 2011

This review is from: Stream Of Passion - Live In The Real World [2006] [DVD] (DVD)
A must for any fan of Stream of Passion or Arjen Lucassen , this is far the best DVD of an "everyday" tour gig I have yet found.

Take a close look at the cover and note the "Featuring Ayreon" bit . This means that though the band line up is as in the original Stream of Passion, the set list is a great and rare blend , drawn roughly half from their first studio album (Embrace The Storm) and half from Arjen's Ayreon and Star One projects:

FROM "EMBRACE THE STORM":Spellbound/Passion/Wherever You Are /Calliopeia/ Haunted/Nostalgia/Out In The Real World

FROM AYREON & STAR ONE : Waracle/Computer Eyes/Valley of the Queens/Charm of the Seer/Songs of the Ocean/Vigil/Pain/Love/The Castle Hall/Into The Black Hole

Marcella Bovio's vocals astound equally on Arjen's songs and on her own lyrics from the SOP album. Sister Diana B adds great backing vocals, Arjen plus Lori Linstruth add up to a formidable double-lead guitar team and ,later on , tour support Damien Wilson makes a welcome appearance as he rejoins the stage for a few of the Ayreon numbers

For me it`s every bit as compellingly re-viewable as (say) the WT " Black Symphony" or Doro's "25 Years"-those were both very much "One-off" spectaculars though , this is just one gig on a "normal" tour . The band just plays real, no-nonsense , all-live rock/metal, with a great vibe and clear real passion. No reliance on backing loops, no "look hey look we're cordless now "guitarists running from one side of the stage to the other...

Extras

As the earlier review has noted, there is a fair bit less by way of "Extras" than on any of the 3 DVD sets to date from Within Temptation. Those though are all Double-DVD sets, this is just a Single . Its 2 hrs 20 Concert plus Extras , so they just about fitted in all they could
