Live Music in the Cinema, And what an experience!
28 December 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The decision to release this in cinemas surprised me, pleasantly though, I hope it is an example that more bands will follow.

From start to finish it is a brilliant showcase of one of the most talented musicians of modern times (in my opinion).

The use of hand held super 8 cameras makes for a "retro" look, which matches their lo-fi sound perfectly.

The set that they play features songs from all 4 of their studio albums, and some b-sides including a good cover of Dolly Partons "Jolene" which I prefer to the original. There are also a few classic blues covers by artists such as "Screamin Lord Sutch", Son house and Leadbelly.

I do feel that it takes a while for Jacks voice to settle down, he is a poorer singer live, but his guitar work is great throughout. A meg......well, she keeps pounding away competently throughout.

If you like The white stripes, then you will love this, and you should seek out the DVD ASAP. Even if you don't, you should check it out any way. One of the best live music films/dvds I have seen in recent years! Although the lack of any special features on the DVD release is disappointing, it would have been nice to see a making off, or behind the scenes documentary. But great non the less.
