Flop (DVD)
2 March 2011 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

Stuck with my U2 DVDs, each show is now a punishment.

I realized that music is boring on a TV screen.

Music is a nice companion in life, to enhance feelings or other artistic works but isn't made to be watched for itself: Except live with the sound surrounding you and maybe on film screen with "U2 3D" or as a documentary like "Rattle and Hum" it's enjoyable.

But a plain, direct show is painful, all the more than it's always the same songs that U2 play: "bullet the blue sky", "pride", "until the end of the world" should be dropped once in a while!

Their gigantic wall screen is amazing but it's badly used: too much close up of the band and not enough pop-art animation.

Nevertheless, i was moved by the acoustic part (from "all i want is you" to "staring at the sun") and "if you wear that velvet dress". "Hold me, thrill me, kiss me" and "Discotheque" were good but just because it fitted with the flashy production.

The other songs were dull all the more than the band extend endlessly the songs!

For a band who were seen as spiritual and preachers, they now like to me as the french charitable show "Les enfoirés" (no pun)! At the beginning, the biggest talent rejoice to raise fund for those who starve in France and ten years later, it's a who's who of people joking and having fun in a very expensive production!
