On the positive side, the performances are awesome and very nicely filmed (as one would expect from seeing Aerosmith performing live). And the focus here is more on the 'hard rock' songs from the band's catalogue (none of those cheesy ballads that they have become so famous for since the 1990s... don't worry, that irritating song from "Armageddon" is not here). So, if you prefer the harder and 'bluesier' side of the band, this one is for you. It is possible though that some fans may be unhappy about the omission of some of the band's better-known songs from this collection (eg. "Janie's Got A Gun", "Dream On", etc). The Japanese edition contains 4 bonus tracks ("Train Kept a Rollin" - full version, "Lord of the Thighs", "Lick and a Promise" and "One Way Street") but I am not sure whether these are included in the UK release.
Now, to the negatives. Although I love the performances here, I really hate how this Blu-ray is organized. First of all, this is a 'collection of performances' from various shows rather than a single complete show. Ok, there's nothing wrong with this from my perspective... however, why on earth do they have to mix short interviews/comments/tour footage in-between almost every song??? WHY, WHY, WHY??? Most of us buy a live DVD/Blu-ray because we want to watch the band perform... we want a continuous, non-stop 2-hour live show.Read more ›
The only extras are two more songs, both of which perhaps could've been included in the feature but are welcome as a bonus.
Overall I think the DVD is worth owning if you are a fan of the band but not the first to reach for if new to the back catalogue. Being a long term fan I really enjoyed seeing some of the older stuff get some airtime. If is wasn't for the dodgy editing and the slightly poor track selection I'd give it five stars!
+ A superb band,including a vokalist that haven't lost his voice.
+ 10 songs from the 70's,the golden age and highlights from other albums
+ Most of the songs are complete
- Footage between the songs, but often very brief
- A few songs are cut
- The consert part a little short and a few hits missing but will it not always be like this.
This was probably made as television program and not a consert movie with emphasis on their hardrock material from the Rolling Stones/Led Zeppelin influenced period. I survive the footage and interruption of a few songs since this is probably the only dvd they have given out with an acceptable quality on audi,video. Buy it
On buying this it has no mention on the sleeve of a tour documentary.
To be fair it is more of a concert film and some of the interviews inbetween tracks are annoying.
Another thing is the first half of Hangman Jury is cut.
Also where the hell are tracks like Jaded and Dream On???
The whole thing runs at 1 hour 34 mins.
On the plus side the picture and audio are exceptional.
It is on a par with Led Zeppelin's Celebration Day and the live feel is fantastic.
It makes you really wish for a full on uncut, no interviews, live show release.
Considering they spent all that money filming in HD and recording each show then releasing this
it makes you wonder the decisions made by management/record company.
Saying this I'd still recommend it.
NOTE - I have e-mailed [...] requesting they release an uncut & no interviews between songs full show.
If we all e-mail them maybe they'll get the hint!!!!
