Movie Reviews

Wow, better than a concert
rgonzale | Delaware, USA | 03/13/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the most amazing concert video I've seen. Filmed in high-def at Maida Vale studio, London (where many Peel sessions were recorded) for TV and podcast. Very high quality surround sound, intimate closeups, *no studio audience* -- just bands playing music. The camerawork is like being on the stage -- it's better than seeing the bands in concert: most of these bands only perform in huge stadiums where even the best seats are far away, and tickets would cost many times the price of this disc.

Some of the bands are more enigmatic than others. You can decide for yourself if they are your cup of tea. But even if you don't love Radiohead or the White Stripes, the performances are so intimate and involving that you will want to watch them repeatedly.

If John Peel was still around this is what he'd be producing. Very highly recommended."
