3.0 out of 5 stars Superb Performance dissapointing track list, 14 Dec. 2013

This review is from: Live at Rome Olympic Stadium (Audio CD)
DVD review 3.5/5 Doesn't do Muse live justice
CD review 3/5

The DVD is good but it isn't the full concert and there was a certain Giant robot missing, why not give the viewer the full Muse experience they are paying for? A few of the songs are filmed in black and white undoubtedly to show off the colour contrast in the 4k cinemas but its just annoying and pointless for the DVD. That said the sound quality is great, the performance is superb and the crowd really get into it. I saw this tour in the Manchester Ethiad and i have to say it was absolutely amazing its a shame the DVD doesn't do that performance justice.

The CD sounds great particularly in my opinion Resistance however the track list is disappointing. Why have Muse released live versions of certain songs repeatedly and others not once? For example Knights of Cydonia,Hysteria,Supermassive Black Holes,Starlight (i really like all these songs) are all on H.A.A.R.P and fan favorites like plug in baby,bliss,Invincible,Mk ultra,Stockholm Syndrome haven't featured on one. I get that the CD needs to stand up on its own merits but come on give me Plug in Baby and Stockholm Syndrome i don't need 3 different versions of Supermassive Black Holes.

Personally i would have preferred a track list more like:
1.Supremacy
2.Bliss
3.Resistance
4.Plug in Baby
5.Animals
6.Stockholm Syndrome (the Las Vegas version on the DVD extras would have done nicely)
7.Feeling Good
8.Follow me
9.Unsustainable
10.Dead Star (the hullabaloo version didn't do it justice)
11.Uprising
12.Mk Ultra
13.Invincible

Lastly Muse please stop releasing CD's in crappy cardboard boxes they break way to quickly and i find it hard to believe they keep the discs safe.
