If this show is any indication of their live performances... I'm glad I haven't wasted the money to see them live. Was it just me or was Dave replaced with some guy who thought it would be a good idea to sing the songs like he's in a night club in Vegas? Vocals that are strained, flat and sometimes downright off key, not to mention really... just awful in some senses.
The vocals would be flat as hell... then he'd take off whirling like a dervish around stage. How about putting some of that energy into actually singing? Oh well.
Martin did look downright pained at times, but sounded as beautiful as I expected. And as another reviewer mentioned, there seemed to be no connection, not between Dave and Martin, Dave and the other band members on stage, or with the audience.
The quality of the DVD overall is good, no complaints with that.
But I think I'll go back to my CD's and hope this was all just a bad dream.
To the Depeche Mode fan that may have seen all the other concerts that they've put out and the videos and the bootleg documentaries ... this concert will probably stick out and be recognized as their best without any argument.
The songs on this go back to the very beginning of their career and lead all the way up to 2001. The surprising thing to realize is how far ahead of a lot of other bands that were made famous by the sound created and harnessed by Depeche Mode, long after DM had already graduated and moved away from it. This fact is actually quite chilling as their sound is sometimes years ahead of everyone else.
My favourites on this are:
When The Body Speaks
In your Room
If you happen to watch this on a big screen HDTV with surround sound, this will floor you and everybody in the vicinity as both the picture and sound are masterful. What's more surreal is the large HDTV behind the band that sometimes displays black and white film, a fish tank, water drops ... you name it.
This is a must own concert DVD for anyone who listens to music at home.
