Editorial Reviews

Blu-Ray pressing. The Pretenders have been consistently making classic albums and hit singles in a career that now spans 30 years. Led by the charismatic Chrissie Hynde, possessor of one of the most recognizable voices in rock music, they have topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic and in many other territories around the world. This show was filmed in high definition at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles in February 2003 on the tour for their album Loose Screw. It was the first Pretenders live show ever to be released on DVD. The concert combines tracks from the Loose Screw album with classic hits from across their career to deliver the definitive Pretenders live performance.

3.0 out of 5 stars This show may be a bit too lax October 10, 2011
Bill Gibron, DVD Verdict --Taken from a 2003 performance at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles, The Pretenders: Loose in LA represents the band touring on the tail of a new album (2002's Loose Screw) and a good percentage of the set list is made up of tracks from this release. Fair warning for those of you looking for more material from Pretenders II (only "Message of Love" and "Talk of the Town" are represented) or favorites like "Show Me," "2000 Miles," "The Wait," or "Hymn to Her." While still representing an amazing two hours and twenty minutes of music, we still miss the supposed smash "hits." Also missing is a sense of urgency. For all their troubles, The Pretenders have earned the right to relax in their advancing middle age. But this doesn't necessarily make for fiery onstage antics. Hynde plays passionately, as does guitarist Adam Seymour and keyboardist Zeben Jameson. Yet it's bassist Andy Hobson who seems to be channeling the overall internal vibe. He's so laidback and uninvolved that you'd swear he was doing the sound check, not the actual show.

In fact, most of Loose in LA comes across as far too calm. Perhaps it's the mix, or Hynde's battle with voice issues (she complains at one point of taking one--in this case, a cortisone shot to the butt--for the team), but the overall feeling is one of toned down defiance. This is no "pushed to eleven" event. This is The Pretenders doing the right thing and delivering what they think the crowd wants. There is no denying the quality of the material--Hynde rights great, almost instantly memorable songs--and the musicianship is stellar. But we expect to have our asses kicked by something like The Pretenders, not to sit back and watch as they work through a couple hours of rehearsal. We want fire. We want brimstone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Generally outstanding! October 12, 2012
This blu-ray is a must for Pretenders fans. I'm giving it five stars because of the quality of the band's performance and of the video and sound. I could ding it for the lack of extras, but that wouldn't be fair to the band.

Buoyed by an appreciative audience, Chrissie Hynde seems to really be enjoying herself and it shows in her performance. She runs a tight ship. They sound at least as good as they did in the 80's and maybe even better. As one reviewer pointed out, they do seem a little lax (actually he said a little too lax), but that's not necessarily a bad thing. They are older, after all. I'd rather see them being who they are than trying to be something they aren't.

Pluses:
* Video quality: Great! I put this one in just to remind me how good my high definition t.v. can look when given something
great to show.
* Sound quality: Sounds great through my Yamaha 673 receiver.
* Track list: Pretty sharp. Standout tracks include You Know Who Your Friends Are, Message Of Love, Talk of the
Town, Precious, I'll Stand By You, and a blazing rendition of My City Was Gone.
* The blu-ray menu: This sounds trivial, but when you put this blu-ray in, it's ready to go. Great menu access, no
copyright warnings, it drops you right in. On their other blu-ray Pretenders: Live In London, whenever I turn it off and
back on, there's two copyright warnings and the disc menu is kind of clunky.

Minuses:
* A few key Pretenders songs are missing such as Rosalee, I Go To Sleep, Break Up the Concrete, Boots of Chinese Plastic, and Stop Your Sobbing (one of my personal favorites). But that's o.k, because you can get those on the also-excellent blu-ray Pretenders: Live In London.

5.0 out of 5 stars The better of the two November 28, 2013
By Ted
Verified Purchase
This is the concert DVD from the Pretenders to have. Of course, if you're a huge fan you gotta have both this and London. But I find myself watching this one almost all the time. Compared to Live in London this one has a much fuller, punchier sound, yet not harsh at all when you crank it up. The songs are better, with stunning versions compared to studio, and NO makeup running down Chrissie's face! It just lacks the flashy stage setup of London, that's it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the DVD July 13, 2013
Verified Purchase
Originally I bought the DVD because this is one of my most favorite bands. Sometime after that I realized that after buying an HDTV and a Blu-ray player it was time to re-buy this item in Blu-ray. Boy was I glad! The picture was of course, much better and the sound was slightly improved. Well worth the money.
