Crowded House "Farewell to the World"
It was late last night so here now is a brief review. Out all my rock DVD concerts and I have a lot, I must say this could be one of the best. The sight, the sound, and these 3 guys rip through 24 of their songs (over 2 hours long) with perfection. Neil is joined near the end by good brother Tim and if your are a Crowded house fan, this DVD is also very emotional knowing this is their last concert as Crowded House and the suicide a few years later of the superb drummer Paul Hester. This DVD will keep you on the edge of your seat rock in and singing away. A+++++++++++++
The only thing I don't like about this and many other DVD concerts is the video editing. Editors seem to think that if they don't move the camera a lot or change quickly from shot to shot that we won't enjoy the video. I wish they would stop that bullshit and keep the camera/editing on the person who should be highlighted. That is one good thing about older concert videos. The editing is down to a minimum. They use to let the band/musician do the talking, not the editing work.Here is a few from my collection that I really enjoy.
