Don't Buy This DVD "Concert"
bdenyes from Ottawa, Canada
22 July 2007
My wife and I like the Dixie Chicks and we enjoy their music. We had
high hopes for a fun concert evening when my wife and I bought this DVD
and nestled down to watch. But do not waste your money buying this so
called "concert" DVD. I imagine that the "Top of the World" tour and
individual concerts that comprised the tour were fabulous - but not
this DVD compilation. Here's the problem.
Most concert DVD's present the entire (or most of it) concert given at
a particular location/stop on the tour. Alternatively, they might
present you with entire songs from selected evenings on the tour -
possibly the best performance of the song that the group gave on the
tour. But not this Dixie Chick DVD. Instead what you get for each and
every song on the DVD is a constant cutting/jumping/editing between the
song performances at about a half dozen different stops on their tour.
This means that the locations, stage settings, costumes, backdrops,
backup-band settings are changing every 10 seconds or so during each
song. What an editing mess. As a result, each song lacks continuity and
hence intimacy. There are practically no real close-ups of the
performers singing - otherwise they would not be able to sync the music
with the lip movements. Most are long shots of the performers that
would allow one to add any soundtrack. Who knows what
soundtrack/recording was actually used for the DVD.
I have never seen a concert DVD edited together in such a disconcerting
manner. Avoid this DVD. Mine went in the trash.
Rating 1(awful) - the worst concert DVD I've ever seen.
