Awesome HD DVD experience...for the FAN of Dispatch

"If you are not a fan of Dispatch or are just totally unfamiliar with their music...then this is not the product for you. If you're curious about their music, I'd highly recommend starting with a couple of their studio albums. If you end up really liking that, and would like to see them "in concert", then this HD DVD would be a good way to go.

If you're ALREADY a fan (like me)...and you happen to have HD DVD...then you pretty much MUST own this disc!! Because it was filmed in HD to start with, the visuals are absolutely awesome. For example, with on number, the 3 bandmates head out into the audience of Madison Square Garden and actually perform standing in the aisles a couple of levels up. The camera is able to get in very close and you really pretty much feel you are there. Obviously this is a little exagerration...but the clarity of the HD takes the video concert experience up a significant level. It just simply adds an immediacy that you can't beat.

The concert itself is good as well. I think some of their previous live albums have sounded a little tighter (these guys had broken up, after all, and reformed for this fundraiser)...but they are very able musicians and still sound very good. The set list includes all the "musts" from their career. There is some lengthy preconcert, backstage footage that is nothing super special...but again, if you're a fan of these guys, spending any time with them is a plus.

This is a due format disc, so the other side does have standard DVD. I did not look at this at all, so I can't tell you anything about it.

Again, if you're a Dispatch really need to give this thing a look-see. I enjoyed the show, and really enjoyed the added bonus of super-sharp HD."
As if you were really there!

"Anyone that is considered a Dispatch or State Radio fan would do well to get this concert on disc. The music and the picture quality is amazing! I have never seen Dispatch play live, but this is the closest I'll ever get. All of their high profile songs are there: Elias, Flying Horses, and of course The General. You not only get to feel the music, you get to see how each of the band members interact with each other. It really was a great experience to watch this and I highly recommend it!"
WOW!!! Buy it!!

"This is my favorite band and will always be my favorite band. Some of the best versions are on this DVD such as flying horses, Waddya wanna be, General, Elias, Bats in the Belfry, and many others. I definitely encourage anyone who has heard, listened, or loves Dispatch, already to buy this DVD. The only problem is that is does not come with the audio CD, but i believe that the HD quality makes up for it!!!!!!"
