This review is from: Red Hot Chili Peppers: Off The Map [DVD]  (DVD)
This DVD, as mentioned, captures the final night of the dominating Californication tour, putting the Chili's back on the map after the diabolical spell between Under the Bridge and the return to form after One Hot Minute. However, it isn't one show. Throughout the show, and even actual songs, the background changes from cloth, to televisions, to this unusual circular pattern, Chad (drums) repatedly appearsd without and then with hat, and starngely enough, John (guitar) underpants which protude from the top of his pants change colour.
Don't let this deter you. Any doubts you had about the musical ability of this band can be easily expelled with this DVD, featuring stunning performances of classic songs such as Pea, Scar Tissue, Under the Bridge, Californication, Give it Away and many more. Also we see superb solos from all 3 instrumentalist, with Flea's ultra fast fingers delight the audience.
The pure beauty of the Chili's stage performance is taken away from by the picture quality. This downfall, which stops it reciving full stars, is viewed as if been recorded on a home video recorder, colours fading into one another, and cannot be compared to more recent Music concert DVD's (Muse - Hullabaloo springs to mind as being superb quality). However, if you can forgive this, you are in for a real treat.
