In 1995 I 'discoverded' Oasis and they where the biggest 'kick' i got out of music in years.Although in my mid -30's here was a band , which revived my teen-years-excitement and love for say..the Beatles.... They'r first two albums , had me going for years.what a sound , and what a songwriter talent in Noel !.And wow , Liam , what a vocalist! In the following years this Band always has a warm place in my heart , for what they've accomplished in my musical soul... anyway... Here we are 12 years further on the road... I watched LDSD and...wow..is it a boooring piece of 'film'...! camera shakes make you dizzy..and it's very uncomfortable to watch.... The Band sounds Like a 'Moloch' A huge monstrous music-industry-creation with all these stadium mega concerts...pffff... the concert registration-part...well , i could'nt finish it...how 'heavy' these guys 'music became... the concert part has nothing to add to the other one.. 'familiar to millions' which carries the same atmosphere. the documentary part well , hard to watch because of the camera shake, terrible camera work and not much of an atmosphere captured by the film crew.... Oh yeh , the converted Collor into b&W video-conversion...doesn't do the trick at all !
I was hoping for a great piece of ' oasis on the road '.. ... and a pity we don't see any more depth in the other oasis members , Gem , Zack and..wha'ts his name. etc....
If you want to see oasis live as the band that 'shook the world' I advice you watch ' There and Then ' or (little lesser) live by the sea...
now there's rebellious verile sounding fresh originality.
Lord don't slow me down shows a Monster very much being slowed down ! only for past excitement , this film rates 2*.
