A terrific concert, but not very good video quality,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dio - Evil Or Divine  [DVD]  (DVD)
I saw Dio in conert in Milan, and it has been fantasctic. Perfect sound, Dio's voice at his best, the band was incredible... And this DVD can give the same power that the band gives in a live show, because sounds great, and just for that it should be bought by every Metalhead in the world.
But there's a "But"... The Video quality is VHS-like, with a bit of misty-effect (just in the black-areas of the stage, and only during the conert, not the specials)and there is a disturbing delay effect (that NOT disturbs the appreciability of the concert at all, but you can notice it)when the scene pass from color to black and white, w/ a brown filter.
Said this, I still give a 4 (actually a 4,5) because it'a terrifc show, and if you are a Dio fan, as I am (meaning that I have all Dio's records from Elf to now), you MUST HAVE THIS DVD.
A last thing for all the guitarists out there... You could think that the actuall Dio's guitarist is not as good as Viv' was. Well, guys, I am a guitar player too, and Doug have done a great work in this tour, because he studied the original solos of the songs, and than he played it live as Viv or Craig did, but with his personal touch. Then every second of the guitar solo is to be learnt... making exeption when he tries to crush his guitar. When he tried to do it in Italy, the crowd begged him not to do it, and he was a bit puzzled by that :-)... I think that there were a lot of guitarists there that night!! ;-)
