Green Day: Bullet In A Bible [DVD]

Sound — 10
Bullet in a Bible is the concert DVD/CD of Green Day's American Idiot tour. The majority if the songs played at the concert were off of the American Idiot album, but there were also quite a few of their older songs played. The band has an incredible stage presence, an dlive show, which is showcased very well in the DVD. A large variety of instruments are used, ranging from trumpets, and orchestras, to the guitars and drums the band themselves use. Of course, anyone who doesn't own the American Idiot album would not fully understand the lyrical story or St. Jimmy, or the Jesus of Suburbia, and would be left only with enjoying the sounds of the music. There are points throughout the concert that lead singer/guitarist Billie Joe ARmstrong is in the verge of tears, from singing the powerful lyrics. Before every song that is performed on the DVD, extra bita are added in, such as interviews with the band, behidn the stage footage, and talks with the fans, all of which add to the DVD.

Content — 8
The live concert DVD features live footage of the band playign a variety of songs, as well as interviews and backstage footage of the band. There is also a CD of all of the tracks the band plays. The DVD also includes a photo gallery.

Production Quality — 10
The production quality of the show was absolutely incredible, from the lights, to the fireworks, all the way down the the camera angles and costumes used. The lights and sound quality enhance the show greatly, and everything was done to a very high degree of effectiveness.

Overall Impression — 9
This live concert DVD surpasses and previous projects from the band, as it allows you to feel like you are at the show, and the interviews let you really get to know the band, and understand why they do what they do. You learn just how important Green Day is to all of them, and why they wouldnt' rather be doign anything else with their lives. I absolutely love everything about this DVD. If lost/stolen, you would be able to find this DVD at any store that sells music.

    I love this dvd! I wish they would have showed all the songs played and the black and white got a little annoying but otherwise it really gives you the experience.
