This review is from: Bill Bailey: Qualmpeddler (Live 2013) [DVD] (DVD)
Bill Bailey is a genius when he's playing music. His early DVDs are a testament to this. Which is why I don't understand why in this, and his other recent DVDs, he's decided to wander around the stage waffling and giggling instead of playing to his strengths. Apart from one beautiful deconstruction of the Match of the Day theme, most of the main show is just talking or pre-recorded music that Bailey pratts along to. The encore is a wonderful three-track return to form but even at the end of this there are instruments on stage that he never bothered to play. It's also marred by a video that some viewers - and clearly parts of the audience - might find distressing.
I didn't like Dandelion Mind for the same reason, Bill Bailey disappearing up the legend that is Bill Bailey, so I probably won't bother with the next one.
