1.0 out of 5 stars Just another money making plot ..., 12 Nov 2013
This review is from: Sweet Summer Sun - Hyde Park Live (DVD)
I used to be a long-time (30+ years) major Stones fan but effectively
gave up a few years ago. I have seen them 50+ times since 1975...
But it looks like there is not much new to expect from them any more...
The same thing over and over again... I didn't go to see them in summer,
I haven't heard the CD and haven't seen the DVD either but
I feel like I know this product inside out. I won't buy it unless I can pick
up a 2nd-hand copy for a quid somewhere in six months or possibly when it appears in
the bargain bins or at record fairs for 2.99.

What's in it for the fans in another release like this?
Even if the Stones were brilliant on the night(s).... They have been brilliant
many times over the last 50 years and most of us have ample evidence of
it in our CD and/or Vinyl racks... How many more versions of
Honky Tonk Women do I need?

Grrrr,... this product is just another money-making rock 'n roll swindle
and not a bigger bang. Has anyone noticed that their last real album,
which was outstanding and which had been their best for aeons,
was released over 8 years ago... !? This means they haven't released an album
for almost 20% of the period since they have been in existence!
Can't they come up with a new album or don't they want to come up with one...
Or is it that they just can't be bothered as long as they can fool people
into buying this type of stuff... Well, let's see, and let's maybe hope....
But if they don't hurry up then they definitely will be too old to do it again.

In conclusion,... Let's just hope that no one has the 'brilliant' idea
of buying me a copy of this for Christmas!

Moronic review. I'm watching the DVD right now and I can absolutely see why the critics were raving about this performance. The Stones have had, at various times in their career, a tendency to either sleepwalk or race their way through their performances. This one does neither; the songs are performed at the right pace and each is (deservedly) give room to breathe. It's also beautifully filmed and somehow manages to be intimate in such a titanic context. The band is in top form and in good humour. Even Charlie gives a "speech"! It's the best Stones performance on DVD that I've seen for a VERY long time.

I can see your point of view the same tracks played yet again in a different setting. but how can you review something that you have not purchased or seen even. Your comments surely belong on a political forum or YOU Tube..

I can't believe you sat down and wrote such a long review for something you haven't seen. You my friend, are an idiot with too much time on their hands!
