H.A.A.R.P is a live DVD and CD package of Muse's June 2007 Wembley Stadium shows.
The release features a DVD focusing on the band's second night at the stadium, which took place on June 17, while the CD was recorded on the opening night, on June 16.
The DVD extras of 'HAARP' will also include behind the scenes footage and a photo gallery.
It takes a certain sort of band to fill Wembley stadium, one unafraid to embrace scale, flirt with pomposity, and perform the odd grand gesture. Watching Muse's live CD/DVD H.A.A.R.P--recorded over two nights in June 2007--you're left wondering if Wembley is quite big enough to hold them. From the grand opening, when Muse ascend from an underground chamber and walk down a central ramp flanked by men in yellow chemical splash suits to Matt Bellamy's lengthy, florid turns at the grand piano, no opportunity is missed to make H.A.A.R.P seem anything less than a spectacle. Shot in high definition, the camera-work is as snappy and dynamic as any movie blockbuster, with special attention to the crowd, who are picked out with sometimes breathtaking detail. Fans may gripe over the tracklisting--the DVD has been edited down, meaning four tracks, including "Bliss" have been left on the cutting floor-but casuals should be satisfied with the selection: there's the hits ("Supermassive Black Hole", "Knights of Cydonia") and on the DVD, a noble rendition of Nina Simone's "Feeling Good".--Louis Pattison

1: This version comes in a deluxe card box rather than the standard jewel case.
2: This version also contains 3 limited edition cards (one of each band member).
THIS VERSION DOES NOT HAVE EXTRA TRACKS AS SOME PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING
therefore I would say that unless you are an absolute fanatic who has to have all the limited edition stuff then the standard edition is fine. On the Dvd itself the concert is excellent but a bit disappointed that the "backstage footage" is only 10 mins long. good though.
THIS IS BLOOMIN' GREAT!!!!!
I thought I knew what to expect here, but quite frankly I was blown away by the sound, the enthusiasm, the exuberance, the technical skill, the sheer joi de vivre and monstrous noise on the CD...and the DVD is more of the same with knobs on.
Mindblowingly, stupendously top notch!
One of the best live albums ever - and that includes Live at Leeds!
I've been a big fan of Muse for a while (and will concede that it makes this far from impartial), but this was the first time I'd ever been to see them. I was not disappointed in the slightest. From start to finish they delivered an explosive performance, with the amazing music, spectacular set design, added bonuses like the balloon gymnasts during blackout, and a stadium filled with such exhiliration. A must have for any Muse fan, and a good indication of why they are the most exciting live band I've yet seen. My only slight disappointment in watching the DVD back is that they cut the song (that may or may not have been bliss) where they threw tens of huge confetti-filled balloons into the audience. Magical moment ommitted from the DVD. Oh well, buy it :D
so i got my hands on the cd/dvd today..
as soon as i got the cd it went in the car...and the minute the 1st track came on it gave me tingles..
the cd is outstanding..and it brought back those memories of seeing them last year..
then i put the dvd on.and it is simply breathtaking.. again it took me back to that saturday night at wembley..and it gave me a better view..
this cd/dvd package is amazing..the stage lighting and the brilliance of muse is second to none...
anybody who likes muse surely has to own this...and likewise for anybody who want to get into muse...
The DVD is gorgeous visually, really showing off the colourful light show and background videos. (Muse have sussed out that audiences like to have more to look at for two hours than three men with instruments.) It also makes a fair stab at capturing what it is like to be at a gig, with lots of panning crowd shots helping to demonstrate the scale of the concert - and the ecstatic crowd.
As for the music, most of their songs are far better live than in the studio. These are particularly good performances, by a band known as an outstanding live act. For example, Invincible and Starlight are slightly-cloying ballads on the radio, but turn into huge anthems live.
The bonus footage really just consists of the band's approach to the stage and coming off afterwards. I certainly found it strange to realise that 20 feet from where I stood, Matt Bellamy was telling someone to turn off the music, but I'm not sure how interesting that would be for anyone else.
It's Wembley in a nutshell: both nights, in one form or another, from different points of view. There's no way it could have failed to be entertaining. Five well-deserved stars.
The live DVD is on the whole very, very good. The band and the show are outstanding. With an awesome, powerful, yet crisp sound; a wonderful mix of massive booming anthems and lovely slow intimate songs that makes MUSE so famous.
The show is brilliant from what I can tell, and the atmosphere in the stadium really comes through on the DVD for much of the time.
HOWEVER (and this is no fault of the band), the constant chopping and changing of camera angles, swooping and spinning around the stadium in time with songs was something I felt detracted a lot from the DVD.
Am I the only person that felt slightly irritated at best and completely nausiated at worst by the fast paced constant flicking of shots to many of the songs?
Overall I would say that this gig probrably deserved 5 stars, however due to the poor editing of the DVD you loose some of that and unfortunately, personally I think its only worth 3 or 4 stars for that reason. Which is a crying shame.
