5.0 out of 5 stars SPs live. Need I say more?, 23 May 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Vieuphoria [DVD] (DVD)
Taken from the early years of the band, this DVD is an enhanced version of the VHS, and let me tell you, is quite simply essential. For somebody who never saw the band live, I value every piece of live stuff I can get my hands on, from any videos to live cds, and this is an essential purchase for any fan. Kicking off with the ever explosive Quiet, the DVD takes you on a journey through tracks from Gish and Siamese Dream I Am One. Through a brilliant Today, rocky Disarm, the ever great Geek USA, a lovely acoustic Cherub Rock, and Mayonaise in a London park, the DVD is packed full of classics, with Soma being another high point, performed live in London. I can't really think of any other track that would be so quite astounding live, and this does not disappoint. 14 minutes long, performed live in London, this is an astounding version of the hidden classic, extended to euphoric heights of guitar and drum perfection, and if you ask me, combined with a goose bump inducing Today and Soma, and the hilarious (Japanese) video of Slunk, worth the admission price easily.
Of course, the tracks available arn't the only things, oh no. In between every track are small little clips of the Pumpkins at play, and an extended one at the end, with the epic Why Am I So Tired? playing over it. Brilliant stuff. Then, as a DVD addition, the Lost 94 tapes are included, with an entire gig for you to watch as well as The Unbearable Likeness Of Manny with James Iha being massaged. Great. Anyway, all the extras are suitably Pumpkinsy, and the live gig is extremely valuable too.
I can only hope they do another one, for their later albums. Quite simply astounding, and a priceless item for any true Pumpkins fan. You know what I mean.
