Chris is awesome, not so much the filming

"I am a long time fan of Chris, and have been very excited for this DVD to be released. The last Soundstage DVD left me a bit flat. Having seen him many times in concert, this one was much more vibrant and fun. He did his acoustic set, which I really love. I had never heard him sing Western Stars live before, it was really beautiful. My only complaint is with Soundstage. The filming itself jumped around way too much, I would have liked to have some wider shots of the whole band, but it it was just bouncing from shot to shot, some sideways, some at an up angle, and never left you there long enough to really appreciate what each musician was doing. Plus it made me a little nauseous.
And the way the bonus tracks are formatted is seriously messed up. From the main menu, you don't have the option to see all the footage they had cut. You have to choose each song separately, which seriously messes up the flow. I'm happy to see them, but they could have just put them all together.
But Chris was perfect. From his sequins to his pretty voice. He loves what he does, and he sure is good at it.

"I like Chris -- I've seen him a number of times, first time in a dump South of Market in San Francisco about twenty-two years ago, and most recently about a month ago. I own plenty of his music. My negative comments aren't about the performer, but the production.
This show feels flat and contrived to me, and it looks to me like Chris feels the same way. It's sanitized and homogenized, "made for TV", and it lacks the loose, humourous punch that I've always found at his live shows. Pity. It's just ... flat."
Just like the real thing!

"I go see Chris Isaak every time he comes to town (twice if he's playing both local venues). He is an amazing and very entertaining performer. This DVD is just like the real thing... nothing beats seeing him live and his meet-an-greets afterwards, of course, but this DVD is just as good and entertaining as his live concerts because it actually IS a live concert.
The camera angles and quality allow you to experience the performance the way it was meant to be seen and heard. The quality of the video & sound recording is excellent.
I highly recommend this one if you are looking for a great live DVD!"

"Better then the 2005 Soundstage. Most of the tracks covered in 2005 are on this DVD as well. I wish I'd have saved my money and bought this one instead of the 2005 Soundstage."
