5.0 out of 5 stars Romeo Had Juliet and We had Lou Reed June 22, 2005
Please Note that this is an awesome live DVD. Lou Reed was never about selling out or having loads of extra this and that so it is not to be expected. What is to be expected is fine Rock N Roll. But, when Lou is associated with Rock N Roll he is also associated with Rap, Poetry, Electronic, and Glam Rock. Lou rocks out hard and exotic. The Celloist tortures her Cello during "Venus in Furs" and Lou sings it in an uncanny way. "Romeo Had Juliet" rambles into the 10+ minute territory and Lou turns it on and lets out the rock star that he is. My only complaint is Master Ren and Antony are not on board to hoard the spotlight. But, after 2 minutes into the concert their otherworldly precenses' are not missed and we can embrace Lou and his band prancing through classic songs with fresh twists. If you are a fan of modern Lou or glam rock Lou this DVD will entrance you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic concert DVD June 24, 2005
This is a spirited seventy-two-minute performance by Lou and his band(guitarist Mike Rathke, bassist/backing vocalist Fernando Saunders, drummer Tony "Thunder" Smith, and cellist Jane Scarpantoni) from last year. It's not loaded down with overdubs to "correct" the rough spots(as opposed to live albums and DVDs from bands like the Stones); a live performance is what it is, and should not be tweaked after the fact. Lou is in fine form--his guitar sound is, as always, immaculate--and so is the band. High points: "Modern Dance", "Why Do You Talk", "Venus in Furs", "Jesus", "Romeo Had Juliette", "The Blue Mask", and "Perfect Day".

3.0 out of 5 stars Lifeless April 6, 2006
By CrimZap
I've been a Lou Reed fan since his days with the Velvet Underground and as far as live dvd or vhs concerts that I have seen, this is very, very weak. It in no way compares to the sublime "New York" vhs or the "Magic and Loss" vhs. (I don't know why these haven't been released on dvd.) I found Reed's leads to be weak and would have been better had Mike Rathke had played them. There was no other worldly feeling to this movie. It seemed to be a major effort for Reed just to do the concert. A bad night? Probably. The producers could have found a better night. I give it a three just for the strong effort and the energy that most of the rest of the band showed, particularly Rathke and the drummer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lou! March 2, 2008
By Bazarov
When he's good, he's great. When he's not, he's awful. I remember Lou Reed concerts that made me wish I was somewhere else, far, far away. But the word on this dvd is... goosebumps.
The man is relaxed, focused, on excellent form and clearly enjoying himself. There are moments when he even seems KIND (after a very inspired Satellite of Love, he blows the crowd a double-handed kiss!). If you think Animal Serenade is a teriffic live cd (and you would be absolutely right in thinking that), you should waste no time ordering this live dvd. The line-up is the same and possibly in even better shape, with bassist Fernando Saunders stealing the show, both visually and musically.
Highlights? Jane Scarpantoni's compelling solo in Venus in Furs; the crowd going nuts during Romeo Had Juliet; Ecstasy getting its best rendition ever; and Perfect Day, I'm not ashamed saying it, moved me to tears.
