Movie Reviews

This show blew me away!!

"After listening to Brian and The Wondermints and the Roxy show on CD for so long, I thought I knew what to expect when I ordered this DVD. Boy was I wrong!! This performance still blows me away every time I watch it. I have listened to Pet Sounds for years and also have the Pet Sounds Sessions CD box set, but none of that comes close to matching the energy and love in this music as performed live at these London shows. The backing band and vocals in this show are far superior and all involved perform with loving sophistication and care. It is truly a blessing from God to have a live performance of these songs performed nearly 40 years after the albums release in digital video and sound seeing as Brian was probably set to have gone the way of Elvis, Jim Morrison and the other icons of rock history. The only thing that could possibly improve this performance would be the presence of the surreal vocal harmony of Brian, Carl, Al, Bruce, Dennis and Mike together. I am glad see that Brian and the Boys are finally being recognized for the fantastic work on Pet Sounds and anyone who even thinks they love music should have this show in their collection. No one is truly musically educated until they experience Pet Sounds and this DVD is a great place to start!! God bless Brian Wilson!!"

"A passionate performance of the classic album. The 5.1 mix is excellent, Brian's voice is strong and expressive, and the bonus features are nice too (a 40 minute documentary -- newly made for this release -- about the album, and a BW solo discography).For the ill-informed: This show comes from his performances in England in 2002, when the overture from the U.S. 2000 Pet Sounds shows wasn't performed. None of the English shows had orchestras either.And guess what? You're not missing much. I saw the orchestra and overture in Denver back in 2000, and they didn't contribute.This isn't meant to replace the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds or anything like that. It's meant to show a modern day Brian Wilson reclaiming his most deeply felt and realized album in concert. And it does that handily."
Breathtaking live rendition of the best pop album ever made.

"I was lucky to see Brian Wilson play live in Hamburg, Germany in January 2002 with this fantastic band, and he performed the entire Pet Sounds album there as well. I was moved to tears by the whole experience: the sheer brilliance of the music and the band, the timeless songs, the vocal harmonies, and the charm and charisma of Brian himself. It was a perfect night. Beforehand I had my reservations: seeing your idols in the flesh tends to spoil the magic and may even lead to disappointment, but this time it went the other way: this show exceeded all my wildest expectations, and this DVD takes me right back - it is a perfect, no-frills document of the Pet Sounds-sequence as he performed it on his six nights at London's Royal Festival Hall. The sound quality and the musicianship means that even the smallest details in the arrangements are brought to your attention in a way that even the Pet Sounds box-set fails to do. Whereas the "Brian Wilson On Tour"-DVD is more like a documentary, this one is music from start to finish. The 40 minute bonus footage on the original Pet Sounds sessions with interviews with key members of the Wrecking Crew is great too. Indispensable for Beach Boys/ Brian Wilson fans, and seriously recommended for any lover of great music. And now he's coming back to do Smile....!!!"
Amazing Performance.....

"To begin with I am a devoted Beach Boys fan who did not like Pet Sounds when it first arrived back in '66. Maybe because I was only fourteen at the time and I missed their surf and car music. As I grew older this album became my all time favorite. I did see this tour back in 2000 and it was marvelous. I know Brians vocals are not what they use to be, but again his presence on stage is a miracle in itself. The Wondermints are amazing.
This performance is awesome and a must for every Beach Boy fan."
