Good compilation of live show, with Promo footage to boot,
This review is from: Bruce Dickinson - Anthology (DVD)
The Anthology is a very good collection of 3 live shows from Bruce Dickinson's, pulled from many sources. DVD ONE has Tattoo Millionaire tour live footage (DIVE DIVE DIVE), and Skunkworks Live. The DIVE video is poor quality shots, and the sound is not the greatest. My favorite is the Skunkworks footage. That album was probably the best of his first three solo albums in terms of musicianship and variation from maiden. It's good to the footage done when it was still fresh, and laugh at Bruce trying to be "alternative".
Disc two is just Scream for Me Brazil in yet another package. Good song set, playing Bruce's best solo work ever (Chemical Wedding Material), but it's too bad that the sound is poor and video is cut from video feeds from the crowd screens. Pretty disapointing disc, could have been left out, made the package cost less, and no one would have missed it. This keeps this DVD from getting 5 Stars
Disc three is the cool best part of this package. The promo videos are just nice to have in one spot. The Tyranny of Souls promo video is interesting, and where else are you going to find the Samson footage. All of the videos also have an intro option with bruce dickinson describing the story of each video (like knowing the "Tatooed Millionaire" video was directed by the pink floyd "Learning to Fly" directory...now the connection is made). Nice job with the last disc.
Overall, I feel the skunkworks video and the Promo material are the best parts of this collection, and make it worth the 10 dollars I paid for this. I would suggest to all to try an pay under 20 dollars for this collection, because the bulk of these DVD's is filler on disc two, and I would feel ripped off by it.
If you have been a long time maiden/dickinson fan, get this anyway.
