Sound — 10
As ever, the recording of Green Day's Live Concert at Milton Keynes Bowl was amazing. Me being a Green Day fan, I was a bit upset when I couldn't go to the concerts, but the DVD makes up for this-the sound quality is so good when that when I watched it for the first time I generally thought I was there in the mosh pit. the music itself was performed spotlessly with the guitars set up perfectly, along with the refreshing sound of the bass and drum riffs. Probably the best live DVD I've seen (soundwise). The Accompanying CD sounds pretty good as well.
Content — 10
The DVD Features 14 of Green Day's most famous songs, including basket Case to the modern epic of Jesus Of Suburbia. In between most songs there is a little interlkude, with little snippets of information from Green Day etc. The slightly disappointing thing about the DVD is the Lack of special features and the chopping off of some of the songs they performed over the 2 days. However, the content in the main DVD makes up for this by miles. There however is a little photo album set to a musical version of Boulevard Of Broken Dreams, which is quite nice.
Production Quality — 10
Sam Bayer has done a wonderful job in making this DVD. On the DVD itself there is a section showing how much work he put into getting what he wanted in the DVD. The camera angles in this were brilliant, giving a refreshing view on the concert, on the action, on everything. Parts of the film have been edited to change the colour to black and white etc, which is very very cool.
Overall Impression — 10
This being a live concert album, by Green Day, of all people, it does not compare to any other band or even their other CDs, simply because Green Day are the best live band in the world. The songs, which feature on other albums, are just performed with a little twinkle on this DVD, just making the experience slightly different. Everything, in my opinion, is good about this DVD/CD combo, and I would have to replace my copy if it gets lost etc. Amazing.
