Editorial Reviews

The eternal fascination with all things Beatle pretty much guarantees an audience for any offering from the group and its respective members, and that will likely be the case with Paul McCartney: The Space Within US, a documentary recorded during his 2005 world tour (and broadcast in truncated form by A&E). Not that it's by any means bad. McCartney and his crack four-piece band are seen performing a variety of Fabs faves, from the delightful trifle that is "I'll Follow the Sun" to the genuine masterpiece that is "For No One" (the latter is a solo job, as are "I Will," "Yesterday," and others); as Apple computer poo-bah Steve Jobs, one of the many talking heads on hand to sing Macca's praises, points out, just hearing these classics played and sung by the guy who wrote (or co-wrote) 'em is a treat, and the great sound and high-definition video certainly don't hurt. On the minus side, the camera spends a lot of time in the audience, capturing their rapturous and often quite touching responses to the music. There are also bits focusing on a Beatles-obsessed family from Columbus, Ohio, all three generations of which are excited, to put it mildly, when Sir Paul pays them a brief visit before going onstage, and on two astronauts on board the International Space Station, for whom McCartney plays "English Tea" (from his 2005 CD Chaos and Creation in the Backyard) through a live feed from his Anaheim, California gig. These tangents may be distracting to fans who just want to watch McCartney and company at work, but considering that this was dubbed "the Us Tour," they should hardly come as a surprise. Same goes for the disparate line-up of celebs and others, ranging from Bill Clinton and various academic types to Tony Bennett and Eddie Vedder, whose comments punctuate (and occasionally interrupt) the music. Bottom line: there are better McCartney concert videos (like Live in Red Square), but this is a Beatle we're talking about here. For many, that will be more than enough. --Sam Graham

5.0 out of 5 stars MACCA ROCKS!!! November 16, 2006
I've been a major Beatles/Macca fan since 1967, and I've seen one show from every U.S. tour Paul has done except for the last one, so I was very pleased when I heard about this DVD. Unlike some fans, I actually enjoy the audience shots. It's great to see them enjoying the show as much as I do. I also like the backstage scenes, fan comments, etc. But, I wish they were located in the 'special features'section. It would be great if Paul's concert DVDs covered the entire concerts from beginning to end. But, we live in an imperfect world, don't we?<G> Here's the setlist from the DVD,,,,"Magical Mystery Tour""Flaming Pie""Let Me Roll It""Drive My Car""Till There Was You""I'll Get You""Eleanor Rigby""Maybe I'm Amazed""Got to Get You Into My Life""Fine Line""I Will""I'll Follow The Sun""Good Day Sunshine""For No One""Fixing A Hole""Penny Lane""Too Many People""She Came in Thru The Bathroom Window""English Tea""i've Got A Feeling""Follow Me""Jenny Wren""Helter Skelter""Yesterday""Get Back""Please Please Me" At the conclusion of "Let Me Roll It," the band launches into an instrumental version of Jimi Hendrix's "Foxey Lady." It's a pleasant surprise and lasts about 45 seconds or so. I guess the highlights for me would be "Please Please Me" and "Till There Was You." Rusty's guitar work on the latter really makes the tune. The 'special features' include three tunes from the soundchecks. Paul does a neat cover of "Whole Lot Of Shakin' Going On" that would make Jerry Lee proud. The ten minute opening film from the tour is shown in its entirety and there are also a couple of other niceties thrown in for good measure. "Helen Wheels" provides the soundtrack for one of them, and the re-mastering is first rate. The DVD comes with a nice little booklet with photos and commentary. Read more ›

2.0 out of 5 stars Want to see Paul not the audience November 5, 2006
By Pam
I have all of Paul's concert DVD's, I saw him on his 2005 tour but I do not know if I will buy this DVD after watching the A&E special. There were way way too many shots of the audience and the constant changing of camera angles was very annoying. I was looking forward to having video of some of the songs he had not performed before. Instead the TV special had endless shots of people lip syncing, dancing,hugging, wiping a tear from their cheek and mugging for the cameras, people holding up their children and even one airhead waving her cell phone around. Hey I get it, seeing Paul in concert is a very exhillarating and emotional experience. Don't hit me over the head with it. Other concert videos show the audience in concert without destroying the performance. Check out the Moody Blues Live at Red Rocks. Lots of audience shots but not this level of distraction.

I feel bad for people who did not get to see him in concert who buy this DVD. Unless you spend 50-60% of your time watching the audience instead of the stage, you will not get the concert experience. I want to see Paul and his band and keep the camera in one place at least for short interval.

2.0 out of 5 stars Is a Concert DVD Impossible? November 1, 2006
By Norm
Wouldn't it be nice to put on a McCartney dvd and actually watch a concert? The substantial number of Mac's dvd releases are the same... song performances that often interrupt the talking heads. Interviews in 5.1 are really neat though.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's Time, Paul, to Take a Sad Format and Make It Better November 14, 2006
I own all of Paul's concert videos, and this one is--by far--the worst of the lot. The music is fabulous, but the format is awful. It's time for Paul to provide a bona fide concert video. "The Space within Us" is outright tedium, with very few actual shots of the band performing the songs. For the most part, the DVD consists of celebrities and pseudo-cultural theorists talking about McCartney's readily obvious impact upon world culture. And then there are the ceaseless images of fans in various states of ecstasy.

What we really want to see, Paul, is the concert itself. The rest is extraneous. And don't even get me started on the astronauts. . . .

1.0 out of 5 stars This DVD Blows March 28, 2007
Looking at the great song lineup, you would think this is going to be an awesome DVD. Now, I'm a very patient person, and can stomach most things. However, after the fourth song, I had to take the DVD out and get rid of it. The problem is, for every 3 minute song, there is maybe 1.5 minutes of the band. The rest is many quick shots of the audience. Grey-hairs trying to dance like the old days (and looking very sad I must say), lovers serenading each other while mouthing the song's words, 50+ year old saggy women dressed like skanks, 2-year olds air-drumming, young women crying,and even some guy head-banging during a mellow song (he must have had headphones playing Metallica). Literally, every few seconds there is a shot of the audience, and the shots are so quick, it gives you a headache. In 10 seconds you probably see 15 different people. I'd much rather see Paul's actual concert than the audience shots which will make you gag. Besides that, after each song there are a couple minutes of documentary and interviews with such Beatle experts as Bill Clinton.(??) So even if you close your eyes and finally get into the song, it suddenly screeches to a halt and you have the 2-minute documentary. Then another song get the picture. It's a shame. They could have at least had all the documentary footage saved in an Extras file, or at least have a choice to watch the concert only (without audience footage).

Is this really a Region 2 DVD? When is the region 1 being released??
It also says it's NTSC, so it should be viewable on US machines. Japan has same TV system as we do.

Paul & The Guys
A bit harsh, I think.

Linda was never as intrusive as Yoko, and her fiddley little amateur touches always seemed quite endearing to me (eg. Band on the run). Besides, she wouldn't have been there if Paul didn't want her there.
