Macca is great, this DVD is bad!
on 18 November 2006
There are a few good things about this dvd. First of all, it has beatiful sound and it's a pleasure to really be able to feel that you are at the concert when listening to it.
Another positive thing is, that it's the first time songs such as I'll follow the sun, For no one, I will, and a few others are recorded on a live dvd with Macca. These songs sounds great, and it's nice to hear them performed by the man himself!
However, and that's a MAJOR however, there are a lot of negatives about this dvd.
First of all, the whole music thing is shadowed by the fact that this is called a documentary!! But what is the documentary? Well, all there is, are people talking inbetween(an most annoying during) songs about how great Macca is, and how much he means to them. I love this mans music and I do agree that he is a genius, but I want his music, not a dvd with people telling me stuff I know(that he is a genius).
For instance, Hey Jude is ruined by the fact, that in order to see it(or that is the last minute of it) you have to see a portrait of an American McCartney-possesed family. Why???
Oh yeah, and with the songs!! I know McCartney send out a dvd only 3 years ago with a lot of the major songs, but now with a lot better sound, and knowing that he did in fact play them on this tour, songs such as Jet, Long & Winding road, Blackbird, Band on the run, Back in the U.S.S.R., Let it be(apart form about 30 seconds) and Live & let die is sadly missing from this dvd.
