Eurythmics - Peacetour

I bought Annie's Central Park concert on VHS once it became available in the US, and was blown away by the way Annie, the consummate performer, cranked up the intensity of her vocals for the crowd, and found myself wishing for the features that DVD brings: clearer picture and sound, ability to easily slide back and review nuances of performance and the ability to jump back and for the between elements.
Luckily for us, the Peacetour DVD delivers, hands down.
First off, the performance itself is spectacular - not just a live run-through of the Peace album, but a retrospective of all the Eurythmics hits you'd want from this "reunion" tour.
But beyond the magic of the concert, this DVD truly delivers on the promise of the DVD format. In addition to the concert, the DVD includes 60-minute "behind-the-concert" documentary, which features additional performances of all of the "peace" tracks.
The disk also includes comprehensive lyrics of all of the songs, as well as a hyperlinked discography, which allows the viewer to jusp directly to the performance of a song within the concert from the album track listing.
Bottom line: if you even kinda like the Eurythmics, buy this DVD, and it'll make you a die-hard fan. If you know and love Annie but don't know the older Eurythmics stuff so well, fear not; this DVD brings you enough energy, excitement and great performnces to bring you up to speed.
If you don't know 'em at all; you should STILL by this DVD - it's great music, performed and presented extraordinarily well.
This disc met my expectations, and then some. The menus are clean and cool, even containing a complete discography with selected music clips. The concert it's self is excellent, old and new Eurythmics tunes plus a few of Annie's own from Diva. There is also a documentary on the disc.
The encoding is impecable, sharp and vibrant. It was shot on video and processed through 'film look', which usually looks very fake, but it was well done and looks natural. (A couple of the songs have 2 extra camera angles you can toggle between, and you can see that they _weren't_ processed through film look.. see if you can tell the difference!)
My only problem with this DVD is that it's a dual layer disc, and there is a layer change right at the beginning of chapter 5 during the concert. If you have an unbuffered DVD player, as do I, it winds up pausing for a second just as Dave begins his guitar into. It really stinks. But I put the DVD into a Mac G4 with a DVD player, and it plays through the layer change without pause, so if you happen to run into this, no, your disc isn't defective.. your DVD player just doesn't buffer through the layer change. It makes me want to go out and buy a new DVD player just "fix" this disc :)
Now like I said if we can get "Annie Lennox Live from Central Park" on DVD, and a new solo album, I'd be in heaven.
