This version of Black Symphony contains a cd with 13 live songs and a DVD with the full 22 song concert and a few special features:
Backstage report- a 13 minute interview with the band, crowd, and orchestra before and after the show.
Documentary - runs for about 23 minutes and it features the band discussing a little about their career with rehearsal footage from black symphony.
Countdown - 8 minute overview from the day of the show.
For anyone that wants to know the technical stuff, the show is shot in widescreen and contains 2.0/5.1/DTS sound.
Every fan of Within Temptation must pick this up! You won't regret it.
This is one of the better looking/sounding concert DVDs out and I have a bunch to compare it to. The extra features are short in nature, but fun to watch.
I do wish the US version was available on Blu-ray like the one in Europe, but you get the full 22 song concert on DVD and 13 songs on the CD for under $20.00. You can't pass on this deal.
All in all, this is a must have for fans of Within Temptation. Buy it already!
Anyway, there is a Blu-Ray version available along with a DVD (PAL). There is also a (2) DVD version which maybe PAL which includes a (2) audio CD version as well, which is the entire concert and not selected songs from the concert like the US version on only (1) Audio CD.
My 3 Star rating is based only what version the US is getting and not on the actual content/concert itself which I expect to be fantastic. **UPDATE** Changed my 3 Star rating to 5 Star due to Blu-ray version.
I ordered the Blu-Ray version and (2) DVD and (2) CD version directly from the Within Temptaion site at [...] They are rather pricey in comparison though to the Amazon US version. The Blu-Ray was around $32.50 while the (2) DVD, (2) CD version was around $39. Shipping on top of that was another $25. Ouch! There may also be some concern whether or not the Blu-Ray is Region specific and whether or not it is going to play in a US PS3 or a US Blu-Ray player. There is no mention on the Within Temptation site whether or not the Blu-Ray is Region Specific plus they do ship to the US. I do know that PAL DVD's will play in a XBox 360 as I have Within Temptation PAL DVD's that play just fine. In the end, I just wanted the Blu-Ray and the (2) CD's of the entire concert plus the extra DVD's include an additional concert that was filmed in 2007.Read more ›
