4.0 out of 5 stars If You Were There..., 5 Oct. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pixies: Sell Out 2004 Reunion Tour [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
You'd know it was more exciting being there than it is to sit at home watching this DVD. This tourfilm is, of course, required viewing for all Pixies diehards(newcomers should check out the other DVD available). Still, I can't help feeling a little slighted by the absence of footage from London; I went to the third of four nights at Brixton and I can assure you it was a more exciting gig than the complete show from France presented here. Indeed, the setlist, though commonplace, is strangely ordered so that the show's opening is the most lowkey start to a Pixies gig imaginable. From then on it is medium high rather than blistering - at least until Crackity Jones kicks-in a run of scorchers that really should have been in at the start. Did they really not play Debaser at this show? I'm surprised they weren't lynched.
The bonuses are all very welcome and I know I will cherish this as another memento of the live experience I never dreamed I'd have after they split in 1993. I would recommend as well the bootleg footage of their Glastonbury set (1989, if you can locate it), as well as the elusive 1991 Brixton professional film (also difficult to find). Happy hunting.
