This review is from: Trevor Horn - Slaves To The Rhythm [2004] [DVD] (DVD)
I am an admirer of Trevor Horn's work for almost 30 years now. The first time I heard anything of him was with 'Adventures in modern recording' by The Buggles. It blew me away. I worked at a recordstore in Amsterdam and we played the record (still vinyl in those days) in the shop. I loved it instantly. The intelligent use of, for 30 years ago, new sounds was incredible. Trevor Horn really made music with those new sounds and was not only experimenting with them. Trevor Horn is able to make the music 'bigger than life'. It's sometimes 'poppy', and then it's symphonic with beautiful breathtaking strings and basses. I totally ruined the record by playing it that often. After that I ofcource listened to 'Plastic Age'. Now I cannot decide which album I love the most. Both albums are classics! Later I listened to songs of Frankie goes to Hollywood, ABC and Seal and I loved them for the incredible sounds, the production. I loved the songs first and later I discoverd that Trevor Horn was the producer. A song like Crazy by Seal is a gem, an unbelievable proof of productionskills and extraordinairy talent. For me one of the greatest productions ever! So, to come back to the DVD, I was very pleased to discover this DVD through Youtube. It is exactly what I expect from a concert DVD. The sound is great, the images are shot in a nice relaxed way. All the great performers and great songs are on the DVD. And most of all: the first 2 songs are Buggles songs. It is a joy to see Trevor Horn performing. I am a musician myself and I recognize the look in his eyes. He is so confident with what he is doing. All his musicians and singers are also great. The performance of the two Buggles songs is close to perfection. The extra's on the DVD are very much worth watching and the way the menu works is a way that only a musician can come up with.
To finish this: here is a DVD I highly recommend to everybody with good ears on his head and maybe some musical background.
