Movie Reviews

Buy This DVD - You Won't Be Sorry!!!
R. Mason | West Virginia | 03/05/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Once in a decade or so comes a talent this huge. That Edwin McCaine can write from such a world-weary perspective belies his age. Song after song, his words touch the heart, bringing forth tears of both joy and sadness. And that's just the lyrics.

The voice. How can it be that one so young can sing with so much soul? Song after song, delivering just the right emotion to drive his poetry home. The perfect balance of melody and driving soul.

Don't for a moment try to group Edwin's music in with the talentless, marketing packages that are so prevalent these days. His talent eclipses any 50 of these combined!

On to the DVD. I found this to be an excellent sampler of Edwin's music. His band consistently kicks out the songs, with nary a wrong note. Personal favorites are "Coming Down" and "Shooting Stars". The high point of the DVD is "Beautiful Life", in which Edwin's band cuts loose.

If I had anything to complain about, it would be that though every song is delivered impeccably, the band plays it all a little too safe for my tastes. the exception is the aforementioned "Beautiful Life" which shows what they're capable of. I only wished they'd stretched like that on a few more songs.

So, if you haven't hit the "Buy Now" button yet, go ahead and do it - you won't be sorry. While you're at it, pick out a few of his CD's. There's nary a bad one in the bunch - a further testament to the talent of this young man!"
Nothing Compares to Edwin Live

"Although this DVD hasn't been released, I know it will be worth every penny spent! I was at this concert...and as usual, not a disappointing moment! Edwin's CDs are incredible anyway but his live performances are incomparable...his ballads are moving, his upbeat songs get your feet tapping and his chemistry with his band is second to none! If you have never seen one of his live this DVD and then log immediately on to his website ( and find out where you can see him ASAP! His live performances, whether they are full band or partial, are experiences you never want to end!"

"I know the DVD has not been released yet - but I attended the concert at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, SC when this DVD was recorded and WHAT AN AMAZING night of music!

Anyone who has ever listed to "I'll Be" has got to check out this DVD. Then RUN to your local CD store and purchase all of the Edwin McCain Band's albums. You will NOT be disappointed.

The Edwin McCain Band is so much more than a "ballad - band".

You will NOT be disappointed!"
Exceptional DVD & CD combo

"Edwin McCain is arguably the best lyricist and songwriter of the last decade. This DVD catches he and his band in a period of rebirth in their music. These are songs to capture your soul."
