Having released their first live video concert "Live in Japan" in 1993 (reissued on DVD in 2006), "Fair Warning" returned to Japan in 2009 and 2010 to capture this latest double live DVD "Talking Ain't Enough". For "Fair Warning" fans, this double DVD will probably make up for the 17 intervening years without an "FW" live video, as it captures two full concerts of the band.
The first 2009 concert finds the band performing at the prestigious "Loudpark 09" festival playing overall 13 tracks, while the 2010 concert is filmed on a date during the band's headline tour of Japan where they perform 22 tracks. Now, as you would expect, a good number of songs are repeated between the two concerts, yet the group has effectively chosen the most melodic, upbeat and rocking songs from their catalogue that are certain to please any fan of the melodic hard rock/AOR genre.
Moving to the specifics of the show, both concerts are filmed on rather large stages where the six piece band is comfortably placed, with camera angles covering all six musicians. The line up features lead singer Tommy Heart, guitarist extraordinaire Helge Engelke, bassist Ule Ritgen and drummer C.C. Behrens along side session/support members key player Torsten Leuderwaldt ("Dreamtide") and guitarist Henny Wolter ("Primal Fear"/"Sinner"). In terms of performance the band faithfully recreate every song, every melody, every solo matching the standards of their studio performances, effectively living up to their reputation as a top melodic live act. The only technical limitation, if any, is the fact that the DVD is strictly stereo, not offering the option of 5.1. sound. Beyond the audio format that the sound quality is ideal with all instruments balanced perfectly making every minor musical detail perfectly audible.
"Talking ain't enough" the ideal buy for any fan of melodic hard rock/AOR. If you have purchased the latest DVDs by "Brother Firetribe" or "The Poodles", then this is definitely for you.
