Movie Reviews

Chasing the ghosts of time...
Steven Cain | Temporal Quantum Pocket | 02/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For the longest time I wondered if Collide would ever take their magic on the road, and how they would be able to translate their studio genius into live songs. I needn't have worried.

From the stunning opening number, Beneath The Skin onwards, this powerful, six-piece Collide takes no prisoners. While the utterly divine Karin prowls the stage like a lioness, the band sustains a richly-layered sonic attack that breathes new life into these already superb songs.

Kai Kurosawa's mastery of the touch-sensitive Warr guitar is a joy to behold, enabling him to play a fascinating combination of guitar and bass on some of the numbers, alternating with his other bass guitar. All three guitarists have tremendous stage presence, especially when they are throwing themselves into some of the more physical numbers, and the drummer is as good as it gets.

The extras are absolutely superb, including an interview with Karin and Statik and some great videos, including a superb version of the showstopper, Wings of Steel.

I emailed Kai recently and he said he was hoping to be going on the road with Collide again in the not too distant future.

This is a must-have DVD."
Fantastic DVD! Truly great work!

"I've been a big fan of Collide ever since hearing "Son of a Preacher Man" a year or so ago. Statik's synth "noise" and kaRIN's sultry vocals collide (hence the band name) to create a sound that is nothing short of mesmerizing. Collide are to the Industrial music scene what Pink Floyd are to Classick Rock. It's a shame they've been strictly a studio band for the last 10 years. Nevertheless, their new DVD does a fantastic job demonstrating just how well they can pull off a live show.

The DVD is feature-packed with live and studio photos, music videos, interviews and out-takes, and a full-length concert of their April, 2005 performance at the El Ray in Los Angeles. The footage is beautiful, crisp, and sounds excellent on my home theater system.

I am very happy with my purchase. I finally got to see how they look and sound live, and I've got three great music videos, a couple of surprisingly good acoustic performances, and lots of pics all on one DVD.

NOTE: In my original review, I gave the DVD 4 stars because I thought they had neglected to include song chapters for the concert. I asked Collide about this, and they told me there's a set list on the bottom left of the Main Menu. I just didn't see it."
