Editorial Reviews

2010 live DVD from the veteran guitarist. This very special recording depicts Satriani's stirring May 2008 performance in Paris, France. Some of his most memorable songs, "Surfing With The Alien", "Flying in a Blue Dream", are matched with recent hits like "Super Colossal" and "I Just Wanna Rock." Following the success of his other live DVD releases, Satriani Live in 2006 and Live in San Francisco in 2001, Satriani has gained new heights with Live in Paris. The quality of music by the 15-time Grammy nominee is unquestionable, yet the extraordinary editing and artful stage lighting makes this Satriani live DVD a pleasure for the new viewer, as well as the long-time fan. An anticipated bonus offering on the Live in Paris DVD is the in-depth interview, unlike any other, with Satriani as well as behind-the-scenes footage.

Format: DVD
I have to begin by saying I have been a Joe Satriani fan for over 20 years. I've seen him multiple times in concert, own his entire collection on CD, all the DVDs, etc. I am a huge fan. Let's face it though, the reason virtually any (all) Satriani fans buy his DVDs is to watch the man play guitar. I never grow tired of watching his skill at playing and the music he makes; in a word, amazing.

Having said that, this DVD is virtually unwatchable. The editing is horrible in that it jumps and cuts all over the place. You never have an opportunity to sit and watch Joe play. The effects are over-the-top and completely ruin the DVD for me. It's as though his editor just learned how to use Adobe After Effects and thought it would be uber cool to use every effect in the software over and over again. Virtually every second has some stupid effect ruining the video. There are sunbursts coming off Joe's head and an almost constant halo effect around him. I cannot sit and watch this video for more than 90 seconds before feeling motion sick. It took me multiple attempts to get through the entire video and this comes from someone who has watched the 'Live in San Francisco' DVD hundreds of times. As an example, I was very excited about "Time Machine" being on this DVD since it has long been a favorite of mine and Joe rarely, if ever, plays that song live. On the DVD, during that song, Joe appears to be having an out-of-body experience. I don't even know how best to describe it, it is off the charts weird and totally unnecessary.

Maybe that is the best way to describe this DVD, it's unnecessary. You never get an opportunity to watch Joe play, at least not without 50+ effects, per song, ruining the experience. I highly recommend the CD since the concert itself sounds fantastic, but pass on the DVD.

I've seen poorly edited/produced concert videos before, but this one is among the most frustrating. Mainly because the performance itself is worthy of 5 stars. Joe and the band sound tighter and more locked in and play a more interesting setlist than Satriani Live (the Musterion tunes translate much better live than the Super Colossal material did). But the manic editing makes it too much work to enjoy.

The whole show seems produced to resemble some sort of acid trip. I viewed the preview clip here of "Always with you, Always with me" and hoped that wasn't indicative of the entire video, but sadly it is. On some songs, the editor lays off indulging himself with all his effects toys long enough to make it somewhat watchable, but those moments are few.

In addition to the absolute overkill of motion blurs and split second cuts, the colors look very dull and washed out. I'm honestly shocked that Joe approved of this product being released like this. It just looks amazingly amateurish and annoying in comparison to the beautifully filmed and edited Live in SF and Satriani Live.

The 40 minute interview is good and quite in depth. If you're a big Satch fan, it's probably worth buying for that. But otherwise, best to stick with the live CD.

Agree with other reviewer - horrible editing, cheesy effects - what was Joe thinking? I'd go with either of his other two live DVDs over this any day

I have become a huge Joe Satriani fan. I'm a guitarist and very very old-school. My main guys are Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, later followed by Duane Allman, Carlos Santana and Neal Schon. I've gone on to like John McLaughlin and then Eddie Van Halen and Uli Jon Roth. JOEY has become a huge source of inspiration for me and I couldn't wait to get this DVD of him playing again. I am SOOOOOO depressed after looking at this DVD. It is totally self-indulgent for the film-maker/video editor, they have ruined a great piece of art. Imagine someone taking water color paints to a Van Gough or a Rembrandt. This film jumnps all over the place. I cannot understand why when filming a concert they can't just set up the camera, turn it on and let it film the band. For those of you who want to get this to check out Joe's playing and his amps and guitars and equipment, you will be disappointed.

I do not recommend this DVD. I am surprised that Joey gave it the "okay" to distribute. I would have fired the video film maker first.

Sorry....but gotta tell the truth.

Totally agree with the other reviewers. Cheesy editing and ruined by too many effects. I'll say this as well - WHAT WAS JOE THINKING? The CD version is EXCELLENT!!! I'm assuming the majority of people buying this are guitar players or people who appreciate great instrumental guitar. One thing we want to see is great camera angles, close-up shots of Joe's hands, exceptional video quality and great editing. This DVD has none. Buy Joe's Live In San Francisco or Satriani Live! DVD's instead.

Fist of all, I am a HUGE Satch fan. I too was very disappointed like the other reviewers.....where was Joe during video production? Doesn't he (or whoever is at the helm) realize he has a mature audience? Most of us are way beyond our adolescent and inattentive youth. Remember the fantastic "Yes 9012 Live" dvd? The final production version sucked due to the CHEESY special effects....but the Director's Cut version of that DVD shined. I would like to see a similar version of Live In Paris released for the "adult" fans. I admired the straight forward and documentary-like video of the performances in G3 Live In Tokyo, where you were drawn into the band's performance as though on stage with them.....was hoping this one would be similar. But, in all fairness, that was in Japan, and those people have class. After all, where could he play in the US and hear a pin drop during soft passages? In the first viewing (I had to skip through the tracks, as I couldn't stand watching all of the cheese) the only semi-gem for me was Flying In A Blue Dream. Due to Joe and friends' fine performance, I can only justify knocking it down by 2 stars (would have received 5 with considerably less cheese).

Would like to see him live again (without Sammy and Company).

Now I wish I had opted for the CD only..........anyone WTB a slightly used DVD?
