4.0 out of 5 stars Motorhead finally up to date!, 30 Aug. 2006

This review is from: Stage Fright [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
Firstly, if you are a Motorhead fan, this is the best DVD they have ever made. Sound quality is excellent which is quite an achievement baring in mind the volume they play at. Picture quality and lighting are first class. Superb modern DVD quality. Secondly, the complaints about it being 'cut to death' or heavily edited to the point of being 'unwatchable' isnt a true refelction. The visuals fit the music, fast edit for fast songs. But it certainly isnt so fast you cant watch it. If you remember how Motorheads appearence was shot on the Young Ones in 1983/4 its as fast, exciting and influencial as that.

It does have an MTV feel about it, plus there are a few 'Matrix' like special effects. The crew involved used a 3 million Watt light rig, especially for this DVD. Motorheads normal rig is a mere 20,000 Watts. It works superbly. Job done. Just dont watch 'Overkill' in the dark due to fierce strobe effects!

But as Lemmy said in the commentary, the music speaks for itself - and the new tracks 'Killers','In The Name Of Tragedy' and 'Sacrifice' are modern, fast, furious and skillfully arranged. A definite new direction for Motorhead and a one that works so well it put some of the older classics in the shade.

Its excellent value - you get 2 DVDs - one for the concert with honest amusing commentary option, and the other with interviews, road crew, fans, a 'making of' and also an L.A. Special where the likes of Dave Grohl appear backstage to pay tribute to the legendary status of Lemmy.

I thoroughly enjoyed it surprised me, as I have seen so much poor quality output over the years, through no fault of the band. This genuinely captures the essence of a good live Motorhead show, together with high quality sound and video,
professionally produced throughout. Its Motorhead firmly in the digital age, finally!
