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