No choice but five stars, really,
This review is from: Meat Loaf: Live with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra [DVD]  (DVD)
My young son adores this band and buying this video was the next best thing to live: and it really is good. The band is fantastic, if you can put up with Paul Crook's guitar playing, and the bass is very accomplished. What really impresses though, is the backing vocals. The whole band sings, and very well, but Patti and CC are just brilliant. You just cannot take your eyes off them. Not only are they very beautiful but their singing is just out there somewhere and they give Loaf all the support that anybody could ever want. The band plays all the usual greats, and the symphony orchestra does its best to keep up, quite well.
The whole DVD is beautifully recorded and seems to last for ever, and you end up rather liking Mr Loaf. I finally got tickets to see him in an open air concert in Kent and his voice was shot to pieces. The band was great, just like the DVD. This is a great concert.
