More live DVD's, please!!!,
This review is from: Jamiroquai - Live at Montreux 2003 (DVD)
This performance was terrific. However, there are two reasons that I shorted it one star:
1. It doesn't come close to Jam's Live in Verona DVD in terms of crowd and camera involvement. The energy is a little subdued.
2. The audio just wasn't finished right. It's like the engineer forgot to tweak the last 10%. The overall audio quality is bright, so surround sound might seem a little overbearing. Stereo sounds good, but it's still missing a cleaner "live" sound (this may have to do with indoor vs. outdoor acoustics).
NOTE: I work at a high-end audio store, so I've been playing this using an $80,000 surround sound system; therefore, please don't let my critique steer you away from buying this disc by any means.
Other than those bits, the overall performance is stellar! Jamiroquai is an incredible live band. They do a great job at taking their studio songs and vamping them up with [acid] jazz, funk, fusion, and jam sessions in between. "Shoot The Moon" is a GREAT surprise!!! That song is filled with great riffs and a groovey chorus.
Buy this disc. But buy it only if you can't find Jamiroquai's Live in Verona (make sure it's REGION ZERO - plays in all DVD players) first. Either purchase will be thoroughly enjoyed. Cheers!
