"This DVD was the first one released by Michael Buble, and I bought it in hopes of seeing some of his live performances. There are segments of performances, but the editing and fast, wild cuts from one angle to the next to the next to the next really detract from the overall effect. The performances get largely lost. What remains is a LOT of footage of Michael and his original bandmembers drinking, clubbing, gambling, womanizing, and generally acting like rowdy frat boys.
If you really want to be wowed and experience what a live Buble concert is like, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND "Caught in the Act". This DVD lives up to it's name as part of the PBS Great Performances series produced by David Foster. "Caught in the Act" is slick, glossy, flashy, enormously fun and absolutely true to the real experience. I've seen Buble perform live twice, and I can attest that "Caught in the Act" is just about as good as being there."
Sublime showcase of the new Voice

"Michael Buble is taking the music world by storm - weaving his way through the masses of manufactured two-bit pop 'stars' and the hip-hop onslaught, and proving that big band jazz vocalists can still make it in the 21st century.
This DVD also proves that it is possible to watch such music on film and not lose complete interest in the genre. Buble is the sort of guy record companies must live for - good looking, crowd-grabbing, popular, youthful, and then there's that little matter of his voice. This concert DVD is focused solely on Michael Buble, and rightly so. The guy is a master. He oozes personality and class, and has you in the palm of his hand once he's warmed up.This DVD is very well produced, combining live stage performances and interviews with Buble and his band members. Unlike some music DVDs that do this, the interviews do not cut into the music, and all tracks are shown in full. The interviews show an insight into the man behind the microphone, and Buble is displayed as a fun, humorous, easy-going guy - much like his singing.
The audio is very good, except in some parts where Buble sings very softly and words are hard to understand, but he quickly breaks out into his trademark blow-you-away finishes, so this is not too bad.
The visuals are very good. Filming a concert where all the crowd remain in their seats, and there is not a lot of electricity coming from them other than end-of-song applause means the star must be entertaining. And Buble does not fail, especially since the editing is done with shots fading in over the top of each other to keep things interesting - lots of angles, crowd shots, band member focus, and an effective use of black & white footage in parts. Very clear, and quality watching.
The CD is an extra bonus, with previously unreleased tracks and some live stuff - just more incentive to buy this item if you're umming and aahing.Great stuff for Buble fans - it'll only consolidate your love for the man and his voice. Much recommended."
Buy the CD, wait for a better DVD!!

"I bought this DVD after the last CD, which I LOVE and haven't stopped listening to since I got it, which is why I was all the more dissappointed by the horrible production in the DVD. The "live" video parts are just a horrible mesh of fade-in, fade-outs, b&w, cut to another take... enough to give you motion sickness! (and I love mtv, so its not that). the music is fantastic, but i would advice to buy a cd instead and wait for a better dvd to come out. he does come through as a pretty nice guy in the short inverview bits, but even those are with a camera thats jumping every which way in a moving car (thank god for traffic lights, at least when the car stops the camera stays still). advice to michael: stay AWAY from whoever edited this horrible thing.
the live cd it comes with is not bad, though..."

"A great idea to have a DVD that's also a CD, that's also a "Special Features" with recording-studio footage of his Live on AOL concert appearance. Best thing about Michael? It isn't just a young guy hyping the comeback of "big band music". Nope. This guy's surrounded with equally young expert band members, and they all are obviously really into the music, the sound, and the legends behind that music. Arrangements by David Foster and friends are outstandingly crisp. The concert footage is full of sound bites, and I found it interesting that the songs are multiple-cut from among several concerts - South Africa, England, others, some in black & white, others in color, and are well edited together so you can enjoy a whole song but see it performed in multiple places. Interesting, fun, and always fresh and interesting.
I've purchased copies for friends, and they're all glad they found about about Michael's incredible devotion to great music new and old. The George Michael song, Kissing a Fool, is a winner! Don Costa's arrangement of For Once in My Life sizzles."
