PICTURE:Good picture quality.About an 8 out of 10.Most concert on dvd fans should be satisfied with the picture quality.There is not any overactive editing.The camera work focuses on one area for a normal amount of time before moving on.The picture goes from color to B&W for dramatic purposes i suppose,but not to the point of distraction.But it does mildly suffer from switching to different clothes and instruments from each scene.I assume this is edited from two different shows.Cant they catch this stuff in editing? SOUND:The sound options are stereo and surround sound.Should sound great on a surround sound system, but on a standard set you will have to crank the volume considerably.But the sound is crisp and clear, although i suspect a lot was re-recorded in post-production since you never get the "live vibe".Sounds more like a polished cd. PERFORMANCE:The guys in Stryper put on a solid performance. They all seem really into it, especially Michael Sweet. Brother Robert proves he is one of the most underrated drummers ever.The stage is simple:instruments,amps(yellow and black draped ones)and lights. No pyro or effects or anything like that,just their music and their message, which is totally fine. The audience really seem to be into the show and seems to know most of the songs as they sing along to almost every one.Shots of the audience are minimal, unlike other dvds that go from band to audience throughout the show. BONUS FEATURES:There are three vintage performances,a drum ,bass and guitar solo from a 1989 concert from Tokyo Japan that are fabulous .The picture and sound quality are great. This makes the dvd even better.(Check out that drum set-up!Read more ›

Here's a music DVD release that caught me completely off guard when I first saw it on the stands. I mean, it has been quite awhile since I've heard much about Stryper. They're like most other hard rock or metal bands that you support. Their music is good, but seeing them play live is just 'all too cool'. This fourteen track, 72 minute gig took place on March 6, 2004 in Puerto Rico. Myself, I don't remember every one of these songs but the ones I thought that frontman Michael Sweet and crew made them shine were "Calling On You", "Free", the awesome "Caught In The Middle", "Loud And Clear", "Soldiers Under Command" and their possibly anthem {?} "To Hell With The Devil". Sound and picture quality is great. Before you take the DVD out of the player, be sure to check out the extras, clips from a 1989 concert. I liked "Always There For You" (hadn't heard this tune in ages) and Oz Fox's stellar guitar solo the best. Old school Stryper fans will simply flip over this DVD.

Stryper-Live in Puerto Rico-I have had this video for about four years and I have only popped it in my DVD player twice in that time. I played it once more so that I could get my facts straight to write this review. Let me start off with the good things. One of the best things is that they start off the video with the ‘Battle Hymn of the Republic’ from the Soldiers Under Command disc while they show fans lined up to get into the show. They run the credits at the end to the ‘Battle Hymn of the Republic’ also. The crowd is a very enthusiastic crowd with most trying to get their mugs in the video. Robert Sweet’s display of his collection of head ware is noteworthy, and he seems to enjoy the camera time because he sure is smiling a lot. The Joy of the Lord is shining through. The video quality is very good, but there is more to concert video than just video quality. As a former sound man, the audio quality of this concert video is a serious disappointment to me. The vocals are half-way decent, but everything else across the board sounds muffled and flat. I’m guessing it’s the yellow and black draping that covers all the speaker stacks on the stage. The guitars and bass all sound muffled and low at times. It looks like someone tried to mic the amps through the yellow and black drapery. Sometimes the vocals overpower the instruments. Not only is the sound muffled, but the overall mix is not very good either.. The drums are not mic’ed properly. The bass and snare drums are flat and muffled. The cymbals and high-hat can barely be heard at all. The mix between vocals and instruments should be in better proportion. The vocals and instruments should have brighter quality and this video just does not deliver on that quality.Read more ›

I loved Stryper back in the day; they were a truly great and groundbreaking band. I saw that they released a DVD and thought it would be a fun trip to yesteryear. Turns out I was right, it is a nostalgic gem. Good setlist (if shockingly brief), tight band, and Michael Sweet looks and sounds great after all these years. The DVD is good evidence that Robert Sweet is the most talented drummer to ever touch professional music.

Sadly, everything good about the disc is overshadowed by two points.

Firstly: Michael - whenever he talks, it feels cheaply produced, stiff, and completely awkward. Strange, because when he sings he's outstanding.

Secondly (and the big point): this is the most dreadful audio presentation ever. I actually checked my speakers when it started because I thought the tweeters were blown. We're not talking a bad mix-job here... this is firmly into HandiCam audio territory. There is no stereo image at all; it's pretty much a mono track run through 5 channels. The LFE channel packs zero punch. It sounds like your speakers are playing through a mattress. Boo! There are no words to describe how much worse the audio is on this than everything else ever recorded ever.

I love strolling down memory lane and you can tell that Michael is in great form, but ultimately, this is a music disc and if the music has been so poorly recorded that it sounds worse than playing a wax tube from the 19th century, then it's just not something you'd ever want to put in more than once. 1½ stars for me. You're better to buy the '7 Weeks in America' audio CD where more than $20 was put into recording and mixing.
