If you like music at it's purest ... you'll love this.
20 February 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

If there ever was anything like the perfect live performance... this MUST be it. While other concerts might tickle your fancy when it comes to your particular taste, this one meets the highest expectations of any true music-lover. The setting (the Acropolis), the lighting, the music and it's acoustics, the atmosphere, the moderate but distinctive glamor; everything tells you you're watching -and listening to- something special.

I never heard of Yanni before I saw this stunning performance. Since the verbal introduction (however enthusiastic) of my friend did not convince me I started watching this DVD with certain skepticism. After my friend had pressed "play" however, it didn't take much longer than 5 minutes for me to get lost in -what only can be described as- an explosion of pure melody, visual pleasure and utter entertainment. It won't matter if you're into R'n'B or Hard Rock ... if you truly love music then you'll most certainly appreciate this masterpiece. This live performance probably sets the standard for a long, long time to come.

Queen at Wembley was superb, no doubt about it. Now filter that experience, condense it, multiply it and add vintage.

I'd recommend this ear/eye candy to anyone that has developed a taste for good music and all it's aspects. I'd also advise you fully exploit the quality of your audio-system when viewing Yanni at The Acroplois.
