Movie Reviews

Allison E. Faulkner | Glendale Heights, IL United States | 04/09/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love this DVD. The sound, the songs, superb. The between song banter also has its moments (keep in mind this banter was never meant for fans' consumption since it was intended for a TV music variety show). The performance starts out slowly, as the band members seem confused at times about the flow of things. But it gets progressively better as it goes along. The song selection mixes several hits with well chosen album cuts, much to the listener's pleasure.All the performances are great; my favorites are probably Don't Cross The River, Moon Song, Rainbow Song, and California Revisited. Listen for Dewey Bunnell's unique introductory guitar licks in Tin Man. And the fake crowd noise following Windwave gives a sense of the band members' playfulness. You'll enjoy the musicianship throughout. Even if you're not a die-hard America fan, this DVD is wonderful for anyone who likes this band.Song Order: Ventura Highway, I Need You, Don't Cross The River, Horse With No Name, Moon Song, Lonely People, Windwave, Rainbow Song, Tin Man, California Revisited, and Green Monkey."
America Rocks!

"First, the good news. This DVD has been in my player constantly since I got it. This is a solid performance by America. A little raw, but terrific none the less. Great songs and great musicianship. After watching this, it's easy to see how much Dan Peek meant to the band. Not just for his songs, but his great guitar work. This is not just an acoustic band, folks. Having said that, the bad news is that I believe this the only live video or audio of America as a trio. Maybe someday there will be more material like this released. But for now we have this and it is highly recomended."
Excellent Playing in this Concert

"I really like this dvd alot. It appears to be a practice session before an empty audience. The thing that strikes me is how uncomfortable the band seems between songs, and they don't talk to each other at all. If they do, it's mumbled. I wonder how the final performance on Musikladen looked? I knew nothing about America before, I still don't which guy is which. The music is what it's all about- it is great. The band plays really well and the harmonies always interesting."
