Evanescence - anywhere but home,
This review is from: Anywhere But Home [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
If you're an Evanescence fan, and I am, you will want to kill the director of the gig footage. The music is fantastic and the CD is awesome but I could not watch the concert in bites of more than two tracks at a time. What i was hoping for was a feel for an Evanescence gig but instead got an insight into the mind of someone with attention deficit syndrome.
The director has chosen to flash from one cut to another, barely spending more than 2 seconds on each bit. He probably thinks this conveys the atmosphere of a concert, but it doesn't. I could maybe have forgiven him if he had done it for one track, but no - he has to do it all the way through. This makes it totally unwatchable.
I think we should all get our flaming torches and pitchforks and rabble over to the director's house demanding that he recuts the concert footage properly because underneath all the arty crap it looks like a fantastic gig.
It's like excitedly waiting for your new car to arrive only to have it delivered in bits. The 2 out of 5 is for the editor, not the band, although i supposed they must have approved it. Shame.
