This band is currently one of the "hotest" rock bands in the world, and this concert dvd certainly proves why!!! This band has a unique sound, that is all their own. I don't think any other band could duplicate their sound. This concert features some of their songs from the "Only by the Night" Album Cd, along with some of their classics. Plus this band, is one of the best bands to emerge within the current decade. It's an original band with all original songs.
Don't believe the review of this dvd in the current issue of the Rolling Stone (they gave it only a 2 star, and they really didn't know what they were talking about.) This band gives it's all in performing before this 18,000 fan capacity crowd. There are no mediocre performances. This band performs extremely well on each and every song. They knew this was being filmed for a dvd. Their lead man Caleb Followill has some excellent interaction with the crowd. Plus, the crowd is really into this concert.
All the songs on this dvd were written by the band members themselves. The Key Tracks include: Use Somebody, Sex on Fire, Notion, Molly's Chambers, On Call and the Bucket. All the other songs are very good also.
This is a GREAT CONCERT DVD, the filming, the sound, the audience are all GREAT, making this one GREAT Concert DVD!!! If you love Rock, you'll love this one. Thanks!!!!
Just so you understand where I'm coming from when reviewing this concert/DVD, my musical tastes include Sting (Police and solo), Billy Joel, Michael Jackson, Creed, Earl Klugh, Spyro Gyra, Bella Fleck and the Flecktones, Rush, Ray Lamontagne, Older Garth Brooks, Yes, Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton, Genesis, Norah Jones, Brian Eno, Chick Corea, Joe Satriani, Joe Bonamassa, Jeff Beck, and dozens of others. I'm also a keyboard player.
This DVD fits somewhere in between a few of the bands I'm familiar with and that I've enjoyed over the years. Musically KOL has some great guitar work, good drumming and good vocals. You can actually understand most of the lyrics, which I generally prefer. There is a lot going on in their compositions without too much repetition.
For my taste in concert DVDs (I like them to be filmed as if I'm there watching from different vantage points), the camera work is a 3 1/2 out of 5. I can't stand concerts where the camera jumps randomly from performer to performer, missing guitar solos. (I.E. Coldplay Live 2003) The camera work is pretty good here, and focuses on the performer during the solos and key parts of the song. A lot of crowd shots, but usually panning shots, which is pleasant.
Sound quality is pretty good (Anthem AVM20, Paradigm Signature 100's, AVM50, Servo-15, ADP's), and picture quality is average.Read more ›
