'Touring The Angel was probably the most enjoyable, rewarding live show we've ever done'.- Dave Gahan. Depeche Mode was at its live best for Touring The Angel, one of the most successful and critically acclaimed tours of last year. Now Touring The Angel Live In Milan is available as a single DVD and in a three-disc set featuring a CD of concert highlights, a DVD of the complete 102-minute live performance plus two extra live tracks, and another DVD with a 20-minute documentary, an EPK and the tour's Anton Corbijn designed stage screens. Touring The Angel Live In Milan is heaven for fans of Depeche Mode.

Dave Gahan is in much better form than he was on the "One Night in Paris" DVD; he looks healthier, and sings on key to a much greater degree. However, I do believe the audio was better on the Paris DVD. While "Touring" has a DTS audio option not present on "Paris", I found it a big disappointment: Christian Eigner's drums basically disappear in DTS. When I switched to Dolby 5.1, voila...the drums magically appeared. This is an important factor, since Eigner is a big part of DM's live sound on "Angel". Eigner also played drums on "Paris", and he definitely adds extra adrenaline to the DM live set list. "Walking In My Shoes", for example, sounds better live with Eigner than it does on the studio version.
The extra feature disc provides some interesting insights. Of particular note are the interviews with the the band members. Gahan appears to infer that he would be perfectly happy if DM were to reach the end of the line (at least that is the way I read it). Perhaps this is a reflection of the reported conflicts about Gahan's past frustrations about wanting more songwriting influence on DM's albums (and for the first time, he did write/cowrite some tunes on "Angel") Andy Fletcher and Martin Gore seem to feel that DM still has a lot of creativity left, and look forward to more DM albums in the future. One could foresee Gahan perhaps moving on at some future date with Eigner.
Overall my impression is that "Touring the Angel" is well worth having for the devoted Depeche Mode fan. The DVD does a fine job of documenting DM's latest live concert tour, and showcases just how good of an album "Playing the Angel" really is.
it's great to see them back onstage and performing in near top form!
There are plenty of hits represented on here from "Violator", "Songs Of Faith & Devotion",
"Exciter" and others past albums as well as a real blast from the past when they perform
the synth-poppy early 80's hit "I Just Can't Get Enough", which they always say they hate to play.
I prefer the DVD to the CD in this set just because I like to match the visual to the music,
but my partner says that the CD sounds great in his car. This is a definite must have for
Depeche Mode fans or fans who never got to see them live in their hey-dey!--Good stuff!
Lástima que cancelaron el primer concierto -es obvio que por no vender muchos tickets- afuertonadamente compre el segundo. En resumen EL CONCIERTO DE MI VIDA.
Ahora, sobre el DVD. La calidad de la imagen es buenísima. Tengo un TV Sony pantalla plana y se ve increíble. Cómo se verá en LCD?????
El sonido también es óptimo. Si tienen DTS decoder, úsenlo. dOLBY Digital es al DTS como el sonido mono al Stereo.
Es una lástima que Suffer Well este tan mal editado -o con tan mal criterio- que la primera vez uno cree que el dvd player esta fallando. Con muchos cortes y efectos. Qué estaría pensando el director??????????
Por que no fue A. Corjbin de nuevo???
Por que no le dan los masters a Anton y le piden que haga su versión? se imagina???????
Vale la pena?? Claro que sí. Si quieren introducir a alguien a DM, de seguro se hará un fan. Si eres ya tú un fan, no te lo pierdas. Y si los viste esta vez en vivo, COMPRALO ya !!!!!!!
