Customer Reviews

The sound is quite good.
I. Mitchell
This is a must-have for any fan of King's X, and I would highly recommend this set to a person looking to get into the band as well.

I've been a huge King's X fan since about 1990, attending many of their live gigs, and like many other fans have been waiting a long time for the release of this, their first live DVD.

Unfortunately, an otherwise decent performance is absolutely ruined by the cuts that are made every few seconds for the length of the entire show. In some cases, the editor makes a cut for almost every measure of the music - literally 1-2 seconds between jumps. It's insane, and almost totally unwatchable.

At one point I turned on the commentary track, and welcomed the audio of Dug, Jerry and Ty as a distraction from the hyperactive visuals. If not for the commentary I probably wouldn't have been able to finish.

It pains me to be so critical of a product put out by my favorite band, but there are live bootlegs out there that I would rather watch than this. King's X is fantastically talented, and it's a shame this DVD makes it so difficult to enjoy the London show.

I have been a die hard King's X fan for decades and have seen them more than half a dozen times over the years. You may surmise correctly that I'm middle aged, which may explain my big problem with this video: the editing and camera work are totally annoying. It started to give me a headache and I nearly turned it off before the end - it is like a spastic MTV video, with rarely more than half a second between camera changes. I know I sound like a cranky old man, but I know I'm not the only fan in my 40s who probably would be put off by this. Hopefully they will re-edit and release a more watchable version.

The performance and sound are stellar, though. I have been listening to the MP3s in my car over and over for days. This is the way this music is meant to be heard (live I mean, not necessarily in your car via MP3). I would say some of their earlier albums, like faith, hope, love, were produced a little too tightly, and the guitar sounded a bit sterile and thin. Here everything sounds big and energized, with rich beautiful tones and some snarl to the guitar sound. I just wish the video production was up to par with this great performance. The best thing I can say about the video is how great Dug looks - can he really have been 59 at the time of filming? Or are those CGI abs?

I had the order sent to my US address and it seems to play fine in normal players around here, so I assume it's NTSC and either region free or region 1 or whatever. Also, I don't understand why this item is not listed under DVDs on Amazon. Unless I am reviewing the wrong product, there were 2 audio CDs and a DVD in the package.

So, minus 1 star for the video production. If the concert had been crappy it wouldn't seem like such a shame, but someone really dropped the ball on this.

Here is the new double live album of the hugely successful sold out concert at London, England last year. It is just about a perfect live hits album, with many of the great cool classics we know like What is this?, It's Love, Dogman, Over my head, and also has a good number of newer tunes from the last 2008 fantastic studio album XV and more.
The sound quality is impressively good, showcasing the great unique vocals of Dug, his funky heavy basslines, Ty's always amazing blistering guitar solos and fretwork, Jerry's underrated drumming and thier unique Beatles-like vocal harmonies along with the very cool funky heavy passionate groovy rock/metal vibe.
A very cool, very stunning uplifting, amazing huge funky heavy double live rock album from a classic influential relevant rock band everyone should know and hear.

First a couple of notes: while Amazon for some reason lists this as an audio CD with a bonus DVD, it was intended as primarily a DVD (and is packaged as a DVD). Second, Amazon (at the time I write this) states that the DVD is PAL format; this is incorrect. The DVD is NTSC format, and therefore is playable on North American DVD players.

Now onto the actual content of the DVD. Fans of King's X have been waiting a long time for them to do a quality DVD release, and the wait has been worth it. The set list is pretty much everything you could ask for - it has their "hits", their live favourites, some of their classics, and some of their new material. About the only albums not well represented are the ones they recorded while on Metal Blade records. The performance is very tight, as would be expected from such an experienced live band, with a few bits of improv and deviation from the recorded versions of songs, as well as some interaction with the audience (and the audience singing along to some classics - particularly Goldilox which is sung entirely by the audience). The guys look like they are having a good time throughout the show. There are no fancy pyrotechnics or video shows - it's just 3 guys and their music, as it should be.

The sound is quite good. The video is generally good, though one of the cameras used was a bit grainy, and in a few areas the picture flashes back and forth between different cameras a bit quickly. Unlike some other concert DVDs I've seen, the camera generally focuses on the right person (e.g. on the guitarist during a guitar solo). Overall, I'd strongly recommend this DVD to any fan of King's X.

If you're reading this for the CD only version - I recommend getting the DVD version.
