Short concert with a heavily compromised play list
on 6 March 2001
This concert registration will definately only 'work' for you if you like both the 'old' and the 'new' work of the Moody Blues (say, before and after Seventh Sojourn). But I can hardly imagine that anyone likes both periods. I've been a big fan for at least 20 years (I started listening to their work in the 1980's and 'worked my way back'). To me, the old songs are so exciting, inspired, musical and oftentimes absolutely brilliant. The new work basically consists of simple romantic love songs which never seem to go anywhere musically. It's no big surprise then that the audience of this concert, which seems to consist of mainly middle-aged women, embarrasingly manages to burst into full blown applause during a number of quiet periods embedded in the old songs (most notably, during Legend Of A Mind and Question). The concert is also way too short (about 80 minutes). If only they'd made this a two disc set, one with older, and one with newer songs, I'd have been happy. Needless to say, I'm not. The image and sound quality of the DVD, however, is pretty ok. Nearly perfect.
