2.0 out of 5 stars Ruined By Video Editing December 3, 2004
Evanescence is a great band and I was anxious to get this DVD. After watching it, I can safely say that whoever handled the filming/lighting/editing, etc. of this concert should never work again. The DVD SOUNDS awesome, but that's not the problem. The camera work is horrendous, the video editing is terrible, and the constant digital effects were extremely annoying. I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned it. You hardly ever see a shot that lasts more than 2 seconds without jumping onto something else for another 2 seconds, and this continues over and over and over. I am not exaggerating. I got dizzy. Amy Lee is in excellent voice but they kept taking the camera off her when she was really hitting her vocal stride. They didn't show the guitarists hardly at all, and we get numerous shots of the back of the drummer's head. I wanted to see the band jamming! You won't see that here unfortunately. Why would they do this? What a disappointment. There's intentional out of focus shots, poor lighting, and an array of unnecessary video effects. The video technician must have got a new toy and didn't know when to quit. I hope they release another concert DVD in the future that shows the band on stage, as you would see them in concert. This plays like one very long MTV video.

5.0 out of 5 stars A live CD with a bonus DVD, and all for one great price! November 30, 2004
Format:Audio CD
It's without question. This is something all Evanescence fans need in their collection! I notice this to be something a lot of artists are doing these days, and it probably is just a ploy to cash in, but I personally enjoy live CDs, and especially DVDs, so you can relive the experience or merely feed your curiosity if you missed one of your favorite groups in concert. I haven't seen Evanescence in person yet but after watching the DVD portion of 'Anywhere But Home', which was taped at a sold-out venue in Paris, I definitely think it would be worth it to try sometime. Amy Lee looks innocent yet deadly, her haunting vocals are in healthy form and the band sounds better than ever whilst they perform their greatest hits...which is basically everything since their melodies are all so unforgettable....

Many people claim Amy doesn't sing as well in concert as she does on her studio recordings and though they may be right, take into consideration the fact that she obviously gets really into the songs and because she jumps around so much, which equals exhaustion and breathlessness, I felt she did a pretty damn good job at controlling the words and pacing. You'll notice during the songs she sings while sitting at the piano, like on the wonderful Korn cover of "Thoughtless", the stunningly emotional "Breathe No More", and of course the infamous "My Immortal" she sounds quite better. Also, during a live event if you mess up there's no turning back so be grateful she doesn't lip synch like countless other acts around. And I'm so sick of people dissing this group simply because they had a lucky break and hit it big thanks to the 'Daredevil' soundtrack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent... November 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am a fan of Evanescence and I couldn't wait for this CD/DVD to come out. When I got it, I was both happy and disappointed.

The CD is pretty good, but the cheering in the background gets real annoying, real fast. The new songs Farther Away and Breathe No More are very good, and the spinoff of Thoughtless was very nice. Missing had to be the best song on the CD (No cheering) and the vocals and music were very nice.

The Music Videos were awesome. They are all eerie in their own part, but I was very happy to see them on the DVD. They were one of the main reasons I really wanted the CD.

The Live Concert was ok. The camera jumped around too much. Every two or three seconds the camera changed angles and it was a little disorientating. Plus, the cheering maxed out the music and Amy's voice causing you to stain to hear it.

The Behind the Scenes was entertaining and funny. A lot of people look at Evanescence as a gothic-depressing band when in reality they are just regular people having fun.

Overall, I liked this and it should keep me happy until the Sequel to FALLEN is out, but I really wish they would have edited out some of the cheering.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good live performance June 15, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
I almost got thrown off by the only other review here of this album. After considering the spelling and lack of grammar, and how much I like Amy's singing, I decided to risk buying the entire album. Since I've found other bands where the live albums were actually better than the studio stuff (Hot Tuna, The Wreckers, Counting Crows for a few), I thought the risk would be fairly low here and I was right. This album isn't really better than the studio, but is still a very good live album and the new tracks are a treat. I've enjoyed this album very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Live March 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD because I had a gift certificate, and it well exceeded my virtually absent expectations. A lot of people said it was basically Fallen live, but I find that it's much more. My favourite tracks are Missing, Breathe No More and the cover Thoughtless, which aren't on any other Evanescence records I believe. Also, new life is brought to Bring Me to Life (a pun? excellent), which I was getting pretty sick of from constant airplay. Going Under on this album is much better than on Fallen, I find. Overall, the live performance is amazing and I would recommend buying this over Fallen because of the seamless vocals, the added tracks, and the emotion a life performance brings. Go on.. aren't you out buying it yet??

For sure did not come with a DVD, just the album. Some live songs, some covers. They turn out great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why didn't I buy this a long time ago?
This was worth it just for the DVD. As with any live album the vocals are not that great, but now I picture the concert every time I listen to the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the bonus DVD
I pretty much have all the music on this CD on other CDs, but I think for the price it is worth it to buy just for the DVD. Great music videos and concert footage are on it.

Very Disappointed. I didn't realize this was the LIVE CONCERT version. I really didn't want all of the fans screaming in the background, feedback and lower quality sound. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Nahhh
Wish I never bought it. Some of the live stuff on this CD was too hard to listen to. Awful. I will stick to Within-Temptation recordings.
