Best Weller concert on dvd,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Paul Weller: Live At Braehead [DVD]  (DVD)
First thing I want to say is: this is the best Paul Weller concert I've ever seen on dvd. It is better than the 'two classic performances' dvd and the newer 'find the torch' dvd. It is absolutely ace! 30 fantastic songs given the respect they deserve. Excellent renditions of some Jam tunes too (especially 'In The Crowd'). If you loved the 'Illumination' album then you will love this concert dvd. The rendition of 'Who Brings Joy' alone is worth the price of the dvd. Superlative concert with great sound.
The only negative thing I have to say is that the editing is terrible on some songe, notably the faster paced songs. Don't try to watch this dvd if you've had a drink as you will feel seasick and may not be able to get off the couch. 'Sunflower' is a prime example of this epileptic MTV form of editing. It could induce nausia!! That said, some of the slower songs have not been murdered in the editing room. I'm still giving this dvd 5 stars as nothing can take away from the awe-inspiring performance by Weller and his gang. Hang the editor though.
A MUST HAVE for Weller fans.
