Product Description

Three years have passed since Public Enemy embarked on one of the most successful and highly regarded tours of their career, highlighting Revolverlution, their current album at that time. "We’re the Rolling Stones of hip-hop," claimed bandleader Chuck D with his typical mix of braggadocio and self-irony. The comparison is certainly legitimate: with over 50 concert tours all over the globe, the band have come to be considered a very special phenomenon on the music scene. Chuck D has no reason to doubt his own talent or his band’s global status.

Despite the fact that there are other acts who are generally considered to be of a similar vein, such as Wu-Tang Clan, Beastie Boys, Cypress Hill or Outkast, Public Enemy are still considered the "The Greatest Hip-Hop Group Of All Time" and the Manchester show underlines this status with every single note. Revolverlution Tour 2003 Manchester includes, next to the actual 2+ hour concert with over 20 songs, a short biography, a comprehensive discography, as well as worthwhile tour clips and tour photos. The second DVD features extensive bonus material, including a compelling tour diary and other exciting insights into the world of this unique act.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review from a big fan August 31, 2006
Format:DVD
From Flavor Flav's wild outfits and crazy antics, to the S1Ws synchronized marches and fake machine guns, Public Enemy was always a group that took pride in delivering a quality stage show. During Manchester UK Live, filmed Oct. 26, 2003, the crew was no longer rap's most controversial group, Terminator X was gone and the Security of the First World was only two strong and armed with swords, but the rebels without a pause seemed like they didn't age a bit as they rocked Manchester for the first time since 1987.

Joined by Professor Griff and backed by DJ Lord and a band dubbed PE (Yes, it's confusing), Chuck D and Flavor ran through most of their classic cuts and gave a high energy show complete with protest chants (F**k George Bush, f**k Tony Blair!), calls for unity among races and one extremely drawn-out "Yeah boyeee!" from Flavor Flav. Chuck kept moving, Flavor was spastic as ever and dripping with sweat and the S1Ws stepped with precision under the lead of Griff who showed off some impressive martial arts moves during one routine.

The backing band was skilled, especially when ripping through "She Watch Channel Zero?!", but one can't help but long to hear Public Enemy rap over most of the beats as the Bomb Squad had intended them to sound, and at times the music drowns out the vocals. Another technical gripe is that at times it clearly sounds like Flavor Flav is rapping over a recording.

Public Enemy delivers, but the concert lags when Flavor Flav and Griff took the stage for separate outings while the others rested. In all, it's a solid performance, but why it was so special that it needed to be preserved on film is unclear, and why did it take nearly three years to be released?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great concert, good documentaries October 2, 2006
Format:DVD
this 2-disc set was originally released for Europe and Australia in 2004, and is just now hitting the US.

PROS:

The first disc has a full concert, played in Manchester, UK, in 2003. All current group members are present- Chuck D, Flavor Flav, Professor Griff, the S1W's, DJ Lord (Terminator X retired in `99), and "The Banned": Brian `hardgroove' Hargrove (bass), Mike `NYC' Faulkner (drums) and Khari Wynn (guitar). The concert includes mini-sets from Flav and Griff (the latter with his `7th Octave' nu-metal side project).

The second disc has two different documentaries, one circa `94 for a series of international touring (see Terminator X speak!), and the other in 2003 for the Revolverlution tour (Chuck recalls how the band dissed Washington, DC on their first show there). Some other tidbits include a music video montage, and a group biography and discography.

CONS

When Flav raps his known solo songs (911 is a joke, cold lampin), a track w/ vocals is used instead of an instrumental.. His solo set lags a little as Flav does mini-rants between songs.. No bonus audio commentary for the concert (though it's not really necessary).

The documentaries lag at times, though in fairness some of this footage is 10+ years old (VHS era), and was shot with the plan of "eventually" releasing it in some form.

Also, from what I've been told, the International version has even more footage and/or discs, so if you've got Internet detective skills, you might want to track that down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerfull performance August 2, 2007
Format:DVD
This is a incredible performance specially in the last song "she watch channe zero", i loved the covers version of Jimmy hendrix, and Run DMC. Lots of songs and Public Enemy looked like in their best years.
