WATCH OUT, WORLD-HALESTORM IS STEPPIN' OUT!!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Live In Philly 2010 (CD/DVD) (Audio CD)
WOW! A cd AND a dvd? And both ROCK! I missed Halestorm when they came to Tulsa (family must come first), and have been bummed about it ever since. Thank you, Halestorm, for a dvd so I could have a live Halestorm experience! Both the cd and dvd are are good recording quality and wonderfully edited. Lzzy and and Arejay give 'em HALE, while Joe rocks it out and Josh lays down the bottom line. I was surprised they gave "equal time" to the bass (not usually done on a live dvd-ROCK ON, FELLOW BASSPLAYERS!!!). Getting to see Lzzy front the band and hearing her perform vocally was a real treat. And getting to see Arejay (and eventually the rest of the band joining in)BOOM it up on "Boom City" was excellent!!! LOVED IT when Joe (on ACOUSTIC GUITAR) and Lzzy performed my favorite Halestorm song "I'm Not An Angel". I bought the first Halestorm cd (what seems like) a long time ago, and gave it a rating of "OMG-YOU MUST HEAR THIS!", and this live performance is right there, too. Halestorm rocks you hard, takes you down with A Familiar Taste Of Poison, and then rocks you up and leaves you wanting more. This is more than a concert - THIS IS A PERFORMANCE. You watch and/or listen and you'll know what I mean. Can't wait to see what they do next!!!

Hey Gary. Nice review. I just got into this band a few months ago and they totally rock. There is no drummer more fun to watch than Arejay, as he just kills his little drum kit. Of course Lzzy elevates all the songs to greatness with one of the strongest female voices in rock history. I hope they come out with some new material soon. As good as most Halestorm songs are, it's getting a bit old hearing the same 10 over and over again.

Good review. However, I don't really care for some of the video editing, particularly the quick camera changes, super close zooms, and last but not least, the constant switching from color to black & white. Still a good purchase, though, especially if you've never seen the band live. I saw them in Charleston SC last year and they put on an amazing peformance.

I actually have to agree with you on anticipating new tracks. I've played their album to DEATH and I hate to say it, but it probably wouldn't get much more play if it weren't for my father. Haha.
Luckily I consider the live tracks new and exciting. :)
