Empezabas a perder suelo, Cerati

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Como fan declarado de Soda Stereo y de Cerati, me resisti a comprar el CD, esperando que el material audiovisual me diera toda la experiencia de estar en la sala de conciertos. Cuando salió a la venta, no lo dude y lo adquiri. Su interpretacion, exclusivamente vocal, no deja de ser suprema, introspectiva o concentrada, y su llamativo vestuario de 'Principito' logra que la atencion de todos sea solo para él. El formato de audio 5.1 engrandece el sonido. Sin embargo...

Siempre me ha parecido que la idea de cualquier artista de reversionar canciones ("sinfonicamente", "acusticamente", etc.), sobre todo exitos del pasado, es para mi gusto un signo de pretension... o de querer aprovecharse de los fans. Me parece que el caso de Cerati fue el primero.

Si bien las reversiones de "Bocanada", "A Merced" y "Verbo Carne" son mas que perfectas para la ocasión -sobre todo la ultima-, son cuestionables las elegidas de su etapa Soda. ¿"El Rito"? ¿"Un Millon de Años Luz"? ¡¿..."Persiana Americana"?! Evidentemente son canciones que le significan tanto a él como a nosotros sus fans, pero el tratamiento sinfonico no le va a cualquier cancion. "Corazon Delator" es por ejemplo totalmente apropiada para la situacion, y tal vez la eleccion de temas podria haber ido por ese rumbo, (¿que hay de "Planeador", "Fue" o "Terapia de Amor Intensiva"?); o incluso haber dado un paso más adelante y sorprendernos con algun tema innovador compuesto en esa vena de sala de concierto. Es mas, existen en el DVD dos temas que bien podrian haber completado la experiencia, ¡pero solo estan en formato de audio!

Es recomendable solo para aquellos fans de Cerati que convierten sus presentaciones en clases escolares: levantandole la mano y gritandole '¡Maestro!'"
An interesting experiment documented

"A few months after the release of this album, Cerati finally releases the video companion to his classical masterpiece. The cover and design of this DVD is basically the same as the audio CD, with the only difference of a silver carton case that is not collectible at all.

The same eleven tracks from the album are presented here. The scenario in which he performs does not provide anything visually attractive at all, his outfit is the only visual point on stage and believe me: that is not enough for a whole concert. There is also a funny moment in which for `A merced' they bring a very stylish chair for him to sit while the orchestra performs this instrumental version of the song. The direction could definitely have been better, if you don't have a very visual scenario to work on, you can at least try to be original on your shots, and that is not the case here.

Don't take me wrong, the concert is excellent and I rate it with 5 stars, I don't try to diminish the merit of the music at all, I only believe this DVD could have been a lot better if thought well when recorded.

The concert opens with `Cancion animal', accordingly to the instrumentation, Cerati sings calmly and with style, the musical arrangements for each one of the songs are very impressive and they match the arrogance with which he sings. The vocal level Gustavo achieves in many of the tracks is at the level of the music. An important thing to emphasize is how well the music from these songs fits in the classical style, besides having the superb arrangements they have, the songs somehow have that rhythm and that classical feeling.

Besides of the concert, the DVD is loaded with extra materials, some of them very interesting and collectible. You can see 3 tracks from the concert in different angles ("Corazon delator', `Persiana americana' and `Signos') which adds an extra value to the concert. A documentary that goes from the conception of the idea to the realization of the project is here, perhaps not to well realized but very informative indeed. The highlight of the extras are four added `episodes', the DVD includes the audio of the first demo recorded for the project (`Pasos', which is basically the same song we have heard with the symphonic arrangement dubbed over it) and three live performances that are worth the buying of the DVD, `Fue', `Lisa' and `Hombre al agua'. Why the video is not shown is something I'd like to know, the three bonus episodes are unbelievably well recorded and the versions are stunning!

Like I wrote on another review, this is an obligatory piece of collection for any Soda Stereo and Gustavo Cerati fan, I was personally disappointed a little bit as the video quality is not so good and the concert offers nothing of a visual spectacle; however, the sound mixed in 5.1 surround sounds great, as told in the documentaries, it was recorded so you could feel as if you were placed in the director's position.

Bottom-line, it could have been better, but the music, the idea, Cerati's presence on stage and the extras added to the DVD are worth buying it as a perfect complement for your audio CD.

Realmente magistral

"Cabe decir que estuve muy al pendiente de la salida al mercado de este DVD y al conseguirlo no me desilusionó en absoluto. No tanto que difiera en la opinión del anterior crítico pero considero que las tomas de video fueron muy profesionales y si no te gustó pues hay varios formatos de vista. Si ya escuchaste el disco de 11 episodios sinfónicos, sólo te falta comprar este DVD. La impresión que da con cada nota, los armoniosos sonidos de la sinfónica, los gestos de Cerati mientras disfruta el nirvana de su música convertida en obras clásicas sin duda permanecerán eternamente en el corazón de todos sus seguidores. Igualmente te recomiendo que si eres realmente fan de Cerati o de la música electrónica compres el disco de + Bien, no creerías que él es el autor de tales preciosuras. Es realmente un artista multifacético que no deja de impresionar."
Great DVD

"This is a great DVD, Gustavo Cerati is one of the best artist of our time, perhaps THE one. Since Soda Stereo his voice and him melodies make the world a better place. This DVD from his symphonic cd and tour, shows in great detail the preparations for it and all the hard work that went on to create such a masterpiece..."
