5.0 out of 5 stars Worthy addition to the collection for any Placebo fan, 6 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: We Come In Pieces [Blu-ray] [2011] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I'm a long term Placebo fan, but have never seen them live ; this Blu Ray certainly makes me feel like I have! Great list of songs, obviously heavy with the 'Battle for the Sun' songs, but also a nice collection of tracks from all their other albums.
Technically, the picture quality of the concert is fine, nothing to shout about, but the sound is the main thing, and that is great, with a choice of PCM, Dolby and DTS, which was nice to have.
The stage 'performance' is simple ; there is a video screen behind them, but essentially it's a small(ish) concert venue; this isn't a massive visual spectacle- but it's the music that counts after all. Unlike some bands, there is no time wasted on chatting to the crowd, introducing the band etc..just music from start to finish.
As the previous reviewer mentioned, the documentary was a great surprise : I normally expect these sort of 'tour videos' to be a rather obvious affair, just trailing after the band. But this was actually a very insightful piece, and it was great to hear Brian and the other band members talking about all aspects of the music profession, their whole career, their feelings etc. Also, the imagery was really impressive, and it looks superb in High Def.

Let's face it, if you are even looking at this Blu Ray page, you're already a fan; so just get on and buy this thing!

For info : the concert itself is 1hour 24mins : the documentary is 1hour, and the other extras last about 30mins

Only (very minor) criticism: the Blu Ray comes in a cardboard packaging, which doesn't stay shut and will be easily damaged.
