I'm a long-time fan of John Ondrasik (aka "Five for Fighting") and have all of his albums. I attended one of his concerts many years ago and had a thoroughly wonderful time. I was expecting to relive that experience with this video. Unfortunately, that wasn't so. I understand that artists sometimes change up their songs a little in concert to give a slightly different "feel" to the song, but John strayed so far from the melody of some of his classic "hits" that I didn't even like them. Frankly, I enjoyed the more personal "bits" of the video than the songs themselves, and hearing the stories behind the songs. However, I already had that information from the "Live" CD, so I didn't really need to see it in a video. Save yourself some money and buy his studio CDs and see a live concert. But don't buy this video expecting it to wow you like his concerts do. Disappointing.

I admit, if you look at my other CD reviews, five for fighting is a bit out of character. But what can I say, John Ondrasik is a great songwriter/storyteller. This DVD is a great concert that has his best music, and the videos to boot. A great one stop shop for adding quality five for fighting music to the collection. Check it out, affordable and all the hits.

Like a visit from a friend, this video is warm, familiar, and wonderful. John Ondrasik (AKA Five For Fighting) is a personable and amiable performer, and he edited in a tour of sorts through the songs and performance footage in the film. SOft-spoken and genial, Ondrasik seems an unlikely music star, much as he does in his live performances, during which he strikes very personal notes with his songs. The songs are at once autobiographical and illustrative, each, like many songs from the folk tradition, telling a poignant story. Although Ondrasik, whose best known songs are pop-sensibility driven, has the connection to his audience typical of folk performers, he is a rocker at heart, which is also evidenced in the film. At his best, Ondrasik delivers slice-of-life stories set to crystalline melodies you find yourself singing again and again. This video showcases all of his skills, from his lyrical and gentle piano playing to guitar strumming, ann of it underscored by his other-worldly tenor, at times soaring over the instruments, and other times running alongside them. The highlight of this performance is his rendition, and telling of the story behind, the song "Two Lights." a must for any Five For Fighting fan.

Been a fan of 5FF for several years, however, I was not very thrilled with this DVD as a "Live" concert. Artist is 'layed back' by nature but in this one, looks like he jumped out of bed, came to venue, played a few songs, half-hearted, and left. BUT thank the lucky stars, as Exc. producer of DVD may have had a similiar insight and INCLUDED at the end of "live" show, the 'Music Videos' versions of all of 5FF BEST video's as broadcast in media Good MOVE! Now, if he'd get on board with 5.1 and HD quality--That would be great improvement... Dolby Digital was good. Also included a number of PSA's which were worth watching Thanx John O.
