Format: Audio CD
The press release prior to 'Mad Band' being available spoke of performances from each city visited on the tour...and the back of the digipack lists the songs on the DVD and says which city they are from. However this isn't altogether factual.
The DVD film is a series of performances punctuated with short fly on the wall clips. Sounds great...but the soundtrack is mostly taken from one London show, and even the images are edited so that many different shows are present as part of the same performance. This leads to many continuity problems and also a lot of syncing issues. Also, the final performance of Bury me in Smoke from Donington looks like it was taken from a terrible source - as this was professionally filmed and edited so I find this very disappointing.
The two cds are the whole of the London show - so in 90% of cases the audio from the CD is the same as the soundtrack to the DVD. So again, the press release which boasted a package 'also featuring another whole show' is misleading at best.
Don't get me wrong - this is an enjoyable package for Down fans - particularly those of us that went to these shows. But it doesn't do 'exactly what it says on the tin' so for that reason it gets a three-star review.

This CD/DVD is awesome! I saw them in London on this tour and again at the same Download Festival featured on this DVD so was excited when this was to be released. My only gripe and what prevented me from giving it the 5 stars it deserves is that the video for each performance is spliced together from footage of that song from each of the two nights they played in that city. So the bands clothes keep changing throughout each song, and some parts look like they're miming as the audio is from one performance, and the video is from two. Apart from that, this is a must have for any fan of Down.

I looked forward to this release, but I'm disappointed with its quality. It is not actually live because they have edited the shows, to match the best images to the best sound (I suppose). That is all very well, but this means, that for example Pepper have different shirts on, depending on which shows they have edited from - so one second his shirt is black, the next second it is red - all in the same song. Another example is that you can hear Phil singing in the microphone, although he is pointing it towards the audience. If you can look beyond all this, it is a good release. But in my opinion, it is not really live, more like edited music videos.

first of all, let me say that i agree with the other people about the dvd, in my opinion the dvd is a waste of time. the reason i have given this 5 stars is live album that comes with this package. i managed to see them on this tour twice and it captures the mood of the shows perfectly, it is an amazingly good live album and i would say to people, get this just for that. it's a pity you can't get an audio only version of this.

Vocals ruin it for me, Phil is nowhere near as good as he should be. Saw em in 2009 and he was on top form. Some tracks are just unlistenable.

Absolutely brilliant. Down. Live. Exactly what you'd expect - no guest appearances, no cover versions, no surprises- but so, so, so much better for it. An essential purchase for any casual or die-hard Down fan.

this is a very good live package of live cds and live dvd from the doom metal band down all the songs are from the first two albums and nothing from the third album which is a shame well worth buying if your a fan of the band if your into sabbath type heavy rock your love this group my only complain is the inside booklet is missing from the cd
