After watching the disc for about the 10th time I'd have to say Dave's ferocity, accompanied by the insane jam session and drum solo during "Stacked Actors", makes this one of the best performances I've seen on video in the past 20 years. By the time Page and Jones come out it's like icing on top of icing on the cake - no wonder Dave breaks down like a little girl for a second. And when Dave switches with Taylor to pound on the pig skins for "Rock 'N Roll" and you see the look in his eyes, I do believe he's actually dead and in heaven. As for Taylor Hawkins nailing Robert Plant's vox (less the impossible highs)... WOW, who knew? I didn't. These guys are AMAZING. And to see every detail of them, their instruments, the crowd, and Wembley Stadium in fine detail is simply breathtaking.
The *only* flaw in the entire TWO HOUR performance (and I wasn't even going to mention this but I must because it's actually kinda funny) is Dave has no clue what half the lyrics are to Zep's "Ramble On". They should have titled the song "Mumble On" for the disc - it's all good though, the triangle solo makes up for it :)
As for anyone who complains about extras missing from the disc, all I have to say to that is, "86,000 FANS plus JOHN PAUL JONES and JIMMY PAGE for TWO ZEPPELIN SONGS" (THERE'S YOUR EXTRAS)!
SIMPLY PUT, THIS SHOW *IS* ROCK 'N ROLL
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I personally wanted to hear some different songs on the setlist. If you dig this setlist, consider it a 5.
As with their other concert videos, "Everywhere But Home" and "Skin and Bones," there aren't any extras, and despite the double listing here, you only get video of the 18 songs in 2.0 or 5.1 (and no DTS). Oh, and like those other videos, Dave's penchant for F-bombs in between songs is also on display here.
The band is in tight, top form here (no bridge jams that drag on) and they look like they're having fun. Dave and Taylor in particular really seem to be in awe of the giant crowd that's gathered to see them. The renditions of the songs are about what you'd expect, although "My Hero" is done acoustic-style. Taylor stays at the drums for "Cold Day," but Dave takes over for "Rock and Roll" while Taylor sings. My only quibble is that "Everlong" is done with Dave solo at first, saving the main quartet for the very end. (Personally, I prefer the energy of the normal arrangement. With this one, it feels like once things get good, it's over.)
All in all, it's a great hard rock complement for the acoustic "Skin and Bones" DVD, and arguably more of a keeper than "Everywhere But Home." Yeah, it'd be good to at least see some behind-the-scenes stuff if anything, but if you can get it for a good price, it's nice to have some of their newer songs on DVD.
