Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Despite their 20-plus years in the music business, One Night in Paris demonstrates that Depeche Mode are by no means dinosaurs of synth-infused rock. Directed by longtime artistic collaborator Anton Corbijn, the concert footage concisely captures the atmosphere of the show that was seen by over 1.5 million fans in 2001. Though there is an obsessive focus on the half-naked Dave Gahan and the "fallen angel" Martin Gore throughout, at various points the camera withdraws to expose a huge screen at the back of the stage. Combined with the angry stage lighting, the projection films (which include footage of a goldfish swimming in a tank for "In Your Room") provide an added epic feel. Predominantly made up of songs from Exciter, the show also includes old favorites such as "Enjoy the Silence" and "Personal Jesus." The visual and audio quality is excellent, and the bonus material on the second DVD (particularly the interviews with the band and tour crew) neatly complements the first disc. --John Galilee

Amazing show featuring a wide selection of songs from most of Depeche Mode's albums. Featuring The Dead of Night, Sweetest Condition, Halo, Walking in My Shoes, Dream On, When he Body Speaks, Waiting for the Night, It Doesn't Matter Two (one of the only places this was performed), Breath, Freelove, Enjoy the Silence, I Feel You, It's No Good, Personal Jesus, Home, Condemnation (also one of the few places this song was performed ont he tour) Black Celebration and Never Let Me Down Again. This is an amazing representation of the powerful 2001 Exciter tour and is easily recommended. The DVD also features an amazing second disc loaded with special features including "Sister of the Night" performed live in Stockholm one of the few places it was performed

i saw them live in l.a. at the exciter tour, and they sounded excellent. the dave that sang in paris in this video stinks. the only highlight is when martin gore sings and on the 2nd cd. martin gore does an accoustic version of sister of night. i honestly would recommend you getting the DM Devotional DVD. dave and the gang all sing great there..

This DVD Takes you back, then brings you into the future. Dave Gahan has never looked this good or sounded so strong. Martin Gore, is groovin' with Dave, but more importantly out in front, one with the audiance, something that is rare to see. Martin sings "HOME," and it is so smooth. The lighting, stage and guest artists make this a must have for all Depeche Mode fans. I got such a thrill out of seeing Dave so vivacious! So alive. DM has changed and evolved. To see Dave with so much energy and charm, it is breath taking. The mass of thousands of fans, all moving and singing with the band. I have been a fan for 22 years, and you can see how Dave "Shines" for Martin and how Martin loves every single minute of it. The collection of songs are a perfect mix. If you are a fan in the least bit, add this to your collection. It is simply the best concert performance I have ever seen. The performance for this two night concert in Paris, is spectacular. You will not regret the purchase. We should all be thankful that Dave is healthy and healing. The depths Dave went to, to find himself, were not in Vain! If you have not followed then in a while, but are an old fan, this will rejuvinate you. It is refreshing and new, although some of the material is older. There is a renewed spirit, and Anton Corbijn really pulled this one off. It is a DVD, you will crave to listen to and watch, again and again! It is quite addicting. ***** Excellent!!

I've been a DM fan since my high school days in the late 80's. However, I've never seen them live. All though the past 15 years or so, they've remained the top band I listen to consistently.

If this show is any indication of their live performances... I'm glad I haven't wasted the money to see them live. Was it just me or was Dave replaced with some guy who thought it would be a good idea to sing the songs like he's in a night club in Vegas? Vocals that are strained, flat and sometimes downright off key, not to mention really... just awful in some senses.

The vocals would be flat as hell... then he'd take off whirling like a dervish around stage. How about putting some of that energy into actually singing? Oh well.

Martin did look downright pained at times, but sounded as beautiful as I expected. And as another reviewer mentioned, there seemed to be no connection, not between Dave and Martin, Dave and the other band members on stage, or with the audience.

The quality of the DVD overall is good, no complaints with that.

But I think I'll go back to my CD's and hope this was all just a bad dream.

Sound: This particular performance lacks the DM energy that I have come to love. David Gahan sounds as if he is straining to achieve the notes that once came with ease. This is especially true when DM's older material. I know this can be attributed to his age but it's just depressing because this may be considered DM's last stay. Visuals: Anton Corbijn's camera work once again appeases the senses. The DM backdrop provides sharp images and Corbijn's camera work capures them in their top form. But, it is all too apparent that DM lacks the physical energy of yesteryear. They are getting on in their years so once again age has taken a step or two away from David Gahan's ability to perform up to par. Notes: In short, I would recommend any one of their other live performances on DVD over this one. I found that 'Devotional', which came out just after 'One Night in Paris', to be considered redeming in nature. The 'Devotional' performance is dated (Faith & Devotion Tour 1993) and the picture suffers as a result but, both DM's sound and stage presence are electric.

To the uninitiated this concert video will probably take you by surprise and open a world to you that you might not of thought ever existed. This concert from the first moment to the very last is entirely enthralling.

To the Depeche Mode fan that may have seen all the other concerts that they've put out and the videos and the bootleg documentaries ... this concert will probably stick out and be recognized as their best without any argument.

The songs on this go back to the very beginning of their career and lead all the way up to 2001. The surprising thing to realize is how far ahead of a lot of other bands that were made famous by the sound created and harnessed by Depeche Mode, long after DM had already graduated and moved away from it. This fact is actually quite chilling as their sound is sometimes years ahead of everyone else.

My favourites on this are:

Dream On
When The Body Speaks
In your Room

If you happen to watch this on a big screen HDTV with surround sound, this will floor you and everybody in the vicinity as both the picture and sound are masterful. What's more surreal is the large HDTV behind the band that sometimes displays black and white film, a fish tank, water drops ... you name it.

This is a must own concert DVD for anyone who listens to music at home.
