Editorial Reviews

The Black Keys' new concert DVD reflects the no-frills genius of the drums-and-guitar duo's studio sound: It's a refreshingly straightforward, beautifully rendered, high-definition video document of their April 4, 2008 sold-out gig at Portland, Oregon's Crystal Ballroom, featuring seventeen songs culled from all five of the pair's albums.

Customer Reviews

I can't believe there are only 3 reviews of this fantastic concert DVD. I own around 300 music DVDs and this one is easily in my top 10. It has it all.

The sound is powerful and clear. Dan's voice is in top form. He sings with real commitment and passion. His guitar tone is thick, aggressive and prominently featured in the mix. Patrick plays with all of the energy he is known for.

The show has a great set list with a mix of songs from throughout their career. Some real thought went into the pacing of this show. Everything rolls along energetically yet there is still time reserved for some truly soulful moments (especially You're The One, and All You Ever Wanted). All of your favorites may not be accounted for here, but believe me, you won't mind in the least.

Set List:
Same Old Thing
Girl Is On My Mind
Set You Free
Thickfreakness
Stack Shot Billy
Busted (w/ extended outro jam)
You're The One
Remember When (Side B)
Your Touch
Oceans And Streams (played on electric keyboard to great effect)
Strange Times
Psychotic Girl
10 AM Automatic
No Trust
I Got Mine
All You Ever Wanted
Till I Get My Way

The camera work and stage light show compliments and reflects the high energy of the band. In contrast to many music DVDs out there, this one does not have constant camera cuts that come at you like a strobe light. The camera actually lingers a resonable amount of time before changing angles. It makes for a very enjoyable viewing experience and it won't make you seasick.

The venue and crowd are perfect for the band. Visually it has classic theater character.

It's remarkable that two guys can produce powerful, blues rock music that continues to attract people of all ages. The Black Keys sound great live, perhaps even better their respective studio recordings. This is hard to say for many bands today. If you have never heard of the Black Keys, this concert is a great start. If you have, then don't hesitate.

Favorite moments of the concert include "Thickfreakness", "Girl is on my mind", and "You're the one"

As for the content, bonus features include a very odd "behind the scenes" making of Attack and Release which is really just Dan, Pat and their buddies goofing around with no structure or point behind it. I was actually hoping for some interesting tidbits, but oh well.

Three music videos are also thrown in: Strange Times (Hillarious), Just Got To Be, and Your Touch.

Enjoy!

Nobody playing today rocks as hard as The Black Keys! I stood in a jam packed crowd earlier this year to see these guys... and it was great. They generally mix in a couple of lower key songs... but mostly they rip and roar.

Nothing beats the real thing. If The Black Keys come to your town... go see them. But, this DVD can hold you over until then.

If you have the first live DVD... the presentation is about the same... but the song list is different, of course.

Although this DVD concert film has the Nonesuch and Warner label on it, you might guess that it was bootlegged. As it were, it is a hell-bent-for-leather 65 minute performance by drummer Patrick Carney and everything else Dan Auerbach. They don't stop. They don't drink water. They don't wipe away sweat. They just motor on from song to song. The Portland, Oregon location is dark as you might expect, but this DVD looks pretty decent in the up-converted mode. The sound unfortunately is only 2.0 stereo which may be what the boys intended. Dunno, but kind of a disappointment in this day and age. One thing is certain. This is some fine rockin' blues played by a couple damn fine twenty something musicians.

I'm a huge fan of live music in all it's forms and while I admit to being a Black Keys fan, I still say that this is a great show! I can't recommend it too much.

It's a solid DVD, jam packed with all the tunes you want to hear from The Black Keys. I have no complaints but then again, if I didn't like the band I wouldn't have purchased the DVD!

I'm a big fan of the Black Keys, and I love Dan's raw, gritty guitar tone. Though the videography is high-energy and the DVD is entertaining overall, the entire concert suffers from really poor audio quality. Dan's sound is no doubt really heavy on his studio albums, but his guitars always retain note definition and clarity that really showcase his playing skills. I don't know how they recorded this concert, but the audio tracks are really muffled - as if recorded under a blanket. The sound is very dark and distant sounding, much like you might expect from a bootleg concert recording from someone's little tape recorder.

The drums and vocals, too, lack the presence and power of a really high quality recording.

I imagine the concert was spectacular live, but much more effort should have been put into capturing the audio properly.

If you like the Black Keys' music, you'll love this video. A great concert recorded with terrific, high-quality camera work and clear, dynamic sound. Especially the editing between drummer, guitarist and audience is smooth and pleasing to watch. Thank God some talented professionals were filming this. The band is on, the crowd is into it and, fortunately, it's all captured cleanly on DVD. I was totally engrossed from beginning to end, I almost felt like I was there.
