Stunning collection...stunning dvd!
on 1 July 2010
WOW! I love this! This DVD is also available in the collection with the cds and live concert but I purchased just the DVD as I could either just listen to the songs thru my system or watch the videos...what I didnt expect was such a well put together DVD which allows you the choice of either watching the videos in the order Noel Gallagher has designed which is like a tracklist for a classic Oasis gig,or if you prefer,in the order they were originaly released,something you wont get with the cd unless you are willing to program the correct sequence into your cd player.You can also have an optional subtitle appear at the start of each video which tells you when the song was released,what album it came from,and more interestingly..what B sides were released with the single.The sound mix is only 2.0 only but what a mix! I listened to this thru a sony 5.1 system with Dolby Pro Logic 2 (music mode) and you could easily believe this was mixed for a 5.1 setup.A great example is the opening guitar effects at the start of "Do You Know What I mean" which were sent to each rear speaker and just sounded amazing.If you have a dolby pro logic 2 setup I highly recommend pumping this through your surround in this mode as I was blown away! There is also great use of the sub for bass and just goes to prove what a great job the sound engineers have done on this dvd.As I said before Noel Gallagher has set the playlist up to be like a classic Oasis concert and you can watch it in his order or you can watch them in the chronologically released order.I prefered this way as you can see the progression Oasis had from album to album.I wasnt a big fan of their later stuff but after watching this DVD I have definatly changed my viewpiont..I really enjoyed their last 3 singles and they again sounded great on this DVD.Once you have watched the main program you can watch them again with a specially recorded Noel and Liam commentary which although I havnt listened to it fully yet,I have dipped in and out of and it sounds like it is a great listen.If all this wasnt enough you also get another 51 minutes of extras featuring live tracks and videos for songs which wern't originaly released as singles such as "Whats the Story Morning Glory" and a wonderfully animated video for "The Masterplan".All in all I LOVE this DVD and after spending a brilliant evening with it blasting out of my surround sound and a few downed beers I wanted to listen to and watch it all over again! So if your just buying this DVD or the complete set I hope,like me,you enjoy this collection and find that Oasis song on here that like me..was the soundtrack to your youth..Enjoy!
