Editorial Reviews

Product Description


The answer is, of course, Morrissey. Released in conjunction with Live From Earl's Court, Who Put the M in Manchester documents a different performance and set list. That said, both concerts were in support of You Are the Quarry and include a healthy dose of Smiths material. On the DVD, Morrissey is in fine voice and good spirits--and why not? He isn't just in front of a home audience, but May 22nd was his birthday (as he jokes, "I can't believe I'm 29"). The rest of the solo tracks, like "Hairdresser on Fire" and "Everyday is Like Sunday," are mostly drawn from Viva Hate. Bonus features include four videos and another live Manchester set from 2004. Those looking for a career retrospective may be disappointed as his last few albums are largely ignored. For the Morrissey fanatic, however, the hyperbole of the title is likely to be fully justified. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

This DVD is absolutely amazing. If you're a hard-core Morrissey fan, or even just looking to maybe get into some of his music...this is definitely the thing for you.

*The Man*

He's looking great, still oozes with self-depricating charm, and is singing as well as he ever.

*The Concert*

Absolutely magical. Fabulous. All the songs are so well executed. The band is magnificent. Big snaps to Boz, Mikey, and Deano! Highlights would be "I Know It's Gonna Happen", "Rubber Ring", "The World Is Full of Crashing Bores", "Let Me Kiss You" and the utterly unbelieveable "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out". Seriously, the DVD is worth the price just for that song.

*The Extras*

- Move Festival -

This footage contains only 5 songs but they honestly bowl you over. With this footage you really get the feeling that you're in there with the crowd...and you feel the euphoria and excitement. I think it was an inspired touch to have a microphone of sorts over the crowd because it really adds to the experience. The 5 songs chosen are absolutely perfect. Really brilliant direction with this one!

- Film Clips -

Great quality...nothing compares with the Live Concerts though :)

- Meet Your Meat -

I'm a vegetarian already so I don't need any more encouragement :) Good movie though.

All in all I would give this damn thing 10 stars if I could!

5.0 out of 5 stars Morrissey for President April 5, 2005
I rode 300 miles to see Morrissey last year only to find that his show had been canceled for health reasons. I might have cried on the way home even, but around this time I found out about the eventual release of Who Put the M In Manchester. I waited impatiently for months for this live release.

Finally, the date of its release came and I snatched it up immediately. The greatest performer of my time (greatest in his own slightly sophisticated way) was on screen belting out some clasics, some new tracks, and some even more classic classics. What shocked me was that every track was 100% and the production value that Attack Records has granted him was fantastic. The end result is a moving show, and the DVD includes enough extras to satisfy hardcore fans (The Move bonus tracks has one of the greatest audience responses in rock history). Don't miss the reprise of "Rush and a Pull. . ." as well as the elusive "Jack the Ripper!"

Last but not least, Johnny who?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Next Best Thing To Being There... April 23, 2006
Terrific concert film follows fans into the venue all the way to the cleanup afterwards with a brilliantly filmed birthday performance by Morrissey in between(who jokes it feels great to be 29).He performs classics like "Everyday is like Sunday" and new material from You Are the Quarry.Full of great emotional highlights that still send chills down my spine after all these years from "I know it's going to happen someday" to "there's a light that never goes out" that proves after all these years Morrissey is still a great performer.A great musthave performance for all Morrissey fans.As a side note it's also a lot of fun to watch crazed fans try to climb on stage with great reactions by Morrissey"Nice try!".

4.0 out of 5 stars ALMOST a Five Star DVD December 21, 2005
Listen, enough people have already commented on the actual performance, so no need to regurgitate the same opinion. Just let me say that the band was great and Moz put on a fantastic performance.

As for the actual DVD, my one complaint is the sound mix. I turned up my Home Theater to make it as loud and clear as I could, but I felt that something was missing. You never get the PUNCH of the drum or the crystalline strum of the guitar you are waiting for. The sound engineer for the DVD should get a swift kick in the arse! The band was great, so why not bring them further up in the mix? (I rate the mix at B+/A-)

All that being said, I love the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic March 28, 2005
This will be a 5-star DVD in no time. The Comcast cable channel in my area played segments recently. It is a well-crafted, nicely edited, richly musical performance by Morrissey and a polished back-up band. The concluding "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" is just beautiful. Morrissey doesn't go overboard on stage theatrics. His voice is the show, though there are plenty of visuals of fans freaking out. I am ordering it today.

5.0 out of 5 stars The makings of a legend... June 17, 2007
The devotion and adoration of Morrissey is clearly displayed during the performance of "Everyday is like Sunday" : Struggling fans are in constant mode to get close to this idol. One young man in the front, while being restrained by two security chaps, makes eye contact with Morrissey,with arm fully stretched; the camera shows the tormented man's face "Please,Please...". Accomodating Morrissey works past the guards to help him. Managing a split-second, euphoric touch/handshake the fan then points to Morrissey (you're the man, you're the man!)The many surrounding audience witness to this accomplishment give full cheers as the victor is carried away.
Maybe this scene is repeated at every concert, but it really makes the video complete for me.
Morrissey at 47: misunderstood as ever but will be worshipped to the end of time by the ones who know. Viva Hate

5.0 out of 5 stars Great concert - Great value April 6, 2005
I was very impressed with this dvd - usually its impossible to find a video of this quality under $20 - and it has been produced marvelously.

The set list is a very nice overview of Morrissey's career - and he really embraces the music here, it seems as though all the songs are still very close to his heart.

I give this 5 stars for the value - and this glimpse of Morrissey as a charismatic performer - very nice.
