1.) The show opens with a very grand and dramatic "flying in" from the ceiling. The opening is long but worth it as Sexy(no,no,no) begins with Cheryl's now famous auto-tune and BAM! it hits you Nadine's vocals and the dancing are great and a very good way to kick off the show.
2.)Girl Overboard- This is great and the girls are still very high energy.
3.)Sound Of The Underground-Unfortunately this is where things start to taper off a little, and they should not this early in the show and NOT with GA's signiture song. The girls barely dance and sit on thier very toned male dancers and let them do the work. One thing you'll see me complian about for almost this whole DVD is the SOUND QUAILTY and the DUBBING, both of which are the low points on the DVD. The sound for SOTU is terrible you can barely hear them and the music is also too low. Other than that it's ok.
4.)Close to Love- By stark contrast to what I said above on this song the sound was GREAT and the girls were up and dancing. The little dance break at the end is great as well.
5.)Can't Speak French- The girls enter after a costume change (covered by the dancers very nice routine)and proceed into the song. The song it's self is great AGAIN the Sound quaity is not as some members are heard far better than others(ex: You can't really hear Nadine but Kimberly and Cheryl are well heard)the band once again are also way too soft.
6.)Love Machine-Cute song with high engery dancing by the ladies and much better sound.
7.)Black Jacks-Here we go again! The sound is bad, the very obvious dubbing is worse and the dancing is low energy. Nice song at least though.
8.)Biology-For one of GA's biggest hits they really messed up big time! The sound is so low you have to turn on the volume quite loud to really hear it, the band is playing like they don't care and worst of all the terrible dubbing. The girls can be heard singing the chorus wrong and it is badly dubbed over with the correct album version. Such a shame to wreck such a huge hit and great song.
9.)Whole Lotta History-After another costume change the girls one by one emgerge onto a wired bridge to take them to thier "B'stage"( a smaller 2nd stage in the middle of the arena)very nice live vocals and though the band is quite low it's not as bad as previous songs.
10.)With Every Heartbeat- The girls are on the B'stage and sing 2 songs there this is the first. It is a nice if very slow slow song with great vocals by all.
11.) I'll Stand By You- Nice emotional song with great performance by the girls but again not by the band.
12.)Fling-After yet another costume change the girls do a short skit and then come out swinging on this one and the band actualy sounded like they had a job to do and so it well this time.
13.)Push it (Salt N Pepper cover- The girls really impressed me on this one! Cheryl takes charge on this as she comands the opening and most of the song. Nadine and Sarah also add great presence vocally. Great dancing as well.
14.)Wake Me Up/Walk This Way- The ladies mix one of their own and another cver together with well.. mixed results(IMO). Wake me up was quite dissapointing frankly as both the girls and the band were low energy and not memorable. Walk this way was a little better but not that much.
15.) Control of The Knife- AH yes My fav song off of Tangled Up is done and done RIGHT! Cheryl takes over both the singing and dancing in an amazing (IMO) performance. Cheryl's dancing during the dance break and the little mini cover of "Trick Me" by Kelis thrown in there(which some say was a threat to Ashley but who knows)was nothing short of greatness.(IMO).
16.)Call The Shots- A very Good performance by all. Nicola really shines here though as her bridge part is the center of it all. Great timed Piro with it as well I must say I LOVE the piro on this DVD it was very well timed and done.
17.)Jump- Very high energy performance by the girls not as much from the band but they still managed to redeem themselves from earlier mess ups.
18.)Something Kinda OOH- Last song of the night and to close it out the ladies go all out! One more costume change(5 in all) and a very dark dramatic opening to the song much like how the show started. After that and some more piro the girls launch into it. This was another dissapointment as the girls were clearly a little nervous and very tired. The band called it a night as well and for such a thumping bass ridden club hit there was liitle to be heard. The band almost could have walked off the stage and you wouldn't have noticed. Not a good way to close it out at all. The ending glitter and piro was nice though. All in all Tangled Up live from the 02 is a good one that had the potential to be great if not for sound,dubbing and sometimes crappy editing. A GA fan MUST Have anyway!Warning!!! THIS IS A PAL DVD NOT NTSC AS AMAZON SAYS!!!!!!! IF YOU HAVE A REGION FREE DVD PLAYER OR PORTABLE THEN FINE IF NOT,IT WILL WORK ON YOUR COMPUTER AS COMPUTERS HAVE NO REGION CODES!!!
