The Definitive Rock Show!
11 July 2005 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Screw Woodstock! That's what I say! I have no idea if I would enjoy Depeche Mode 101 as much if I didn't love the group as much as I do. But mind you, I've seen a lot of rock docs that I've really liked, yet I wasn't crazy about the artist (Jimi in Monterey for example), so I would imagine I would like this. But since I like the band to begin with, that's a mute point isn't it? DM101 profiles Depeche Mode and their grandiose final concert, their 101st, when they were supporting their amazing album 'Music For The Masses. The concert was at the Pasadena Bowl, and this covers all about the logistics of putting a concert of that size there, profiles some VERY scary 80's kids who win a concert to travel to a couple of concerts performed by the band, and their travels across America! Oh and as for the concerts themselves, the songs are great, and they're shot by D.A. Pennebaker for pete's sakes, so you're going to get the best bang for your buck here!
