Customer Review

on 9 November 2010
As i stood in the shop, i used quite a while to decide whether i should buy The Dvd, Cd+Dvd or the Blu Ray Version. I ended up buying the Blu Ray because it's the first one released by DM.

First of all. I like the way that the concert is filmed. They have placed cameras different places of the stage. So you get some interesting angles. For instance sometimes you see the band from behind the big screen, which i think gives a good visual effect. Compared to the previous tour dvd, this dvd is filmed more easy on the eye. (No fast clips.)

The setlist is almost identic to the previous tours. Interesting songs are Dressed In Black which is a classic from Black Celebration. Also Insight from Ultra, which is a bonus track on disc 2. One of the great things is that although you have heard these songs live many times before, is that the versions are different. One of my favourites are Home, sung beautifully by Martin Gore in an acoustic piano version, performed by Peter Gordeno. Another highlight is I Feel You. I Especially like Dave and Martin doing some headbanging in front of the drums.

Apart from the concert. On disc 2 there are some documentary. Ca 35 minutes. The band are talking about the problems at the start of the tour. I was quite impressed to learn that the stage took 4-5 hours to set up, and 3 hours to pull down again. You get a good picture of the life on the road. And it's always great to see documentaries of your heroes:-)
As usual there are screens from some of the songs performed... It does nothing for me. Some promo videos. I like the video Fragile tension. Otherwise i thing that their videos have become very boring and unpersonal because the don't perform in them.

This blu-ray is a great souvenir for those who went to see DM on this tour. It gives a good picture of the atmosphere of it. I think that the 2 shows i saw in Horsens, Denmark was the best i ever went 2. And i have seen Depeche 9 times. The first in 1988.
I can warmly recommend this release for everyone that likes Depeche Modes music.
