Is it your dream to see the amazing metal band Papa Roach performing live? Well this DVD is just for you! "Live And Murderous In Chicago" is an incredible show, filmed at the vic. theatre in Chicago the 1st may 2005. All the hits of the band are in this wonderful dvd, from the old "Infest" album to the new "Getting Away With Murder" CD. Papa Roach are on their best and play with energy and communicate a lot with the very hot public (moshpits and stage divings during the whole show).
Content — 7
In the extras of the DVD, you also find all the videos of the band: "Last Resort," "Broken Home," "Between Angels And Insects," "She Loves Me Not," "Getting Away With Murder" and "Scars." Apart from that, there are the usual backstage scenes and a hidden easter egg! The DVD is very good but I think the band could also have added some pics or a gallery, stuff like that.
Production Quality — 10
The quality of the CD is absolutely perfect: there aren't any problems at all, when I watched this show I wqas really impressed with the incredible that the Papa guys just did. You can't have a better DVD quality than this one.
Overall Impression — 7
Well this certainly isn't the best video of the year, but it is absolutely worth buying it. For the fans, and for the other ones! The show is perfect, has somes beautiful songs, like "Scars" or "Harder Than A Coffin Nail," some explosive ones, like "M-80 (Explosive Energy Movement)," "Born With Nothing, Die With Everything" and the show has a beautiful ending with a superb "Between Angels And Insects." But there's one thing I absolutely have to say, is that Papa Roach are a hundred times better when you see them for real. To see them on a DVD like this one is very good, but it certainly won't entirely satisfy the real crazy fans of the band.
