Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sweet Summer Sun - Hyde Park Live [DVD] [2013] [NTSC] (DVD)
HOW can you not give 5 stars for this....FANTASTIC sound.....brilliantly filmed...captures the day perfectly......shows just HOW great this band still are....forget the moaners and snobby critics ...this is THE business....doesn't get better than this. There will always be inverted snobs who say 'Oh, old guys playing rock' n'roll..not on!' BS!!! BUY it and make up your own mind. Great is great. They are THE best. Sorry, all you cynics. Get a life, and go see the Bieber Brat.... Or the oh-so-pretentious U2....!

I'm with you all the way, David. The best and most entertaining live Stones release in a very, very long time. I'm falling in love with them all over again!

Mr. D. Bain says:
I have to agree that this is a great set. I still marvel at Jagger's energy at an age when many a men lot younger than him (including myself at times) struggle to walk to the papershop each morning. Like yourself I'm not really a U2 fan, I've always thought them a bit overrated. However I can remember reading an interview with Elvis Costello a while back when he was touring as the Stones support act. He was asked how it felt to be the opening act for the world's greatest stadium rockers? He replied to the effect that he had already done that a few years back when opening for U2 on one of their tours. Adding that he rated the Stones as ONE OF the greatest live bands around, but not as good as U2. I believe that he has since toured with Dylan but at the time of the aforementioned interview the Stones and U2 tours were the only occassions when he had appeared as a support act. I personally find this hard to believe but from what I know of Costello he tends to speak his mind, and he has personal experience to back up comments. So you and I may be a little biased in our views.
