"JMQ are an absolutely wicked live band. However, a couple of songs into this DVD, I just felt like something was missing. As it progressed, it picked the funk up! Plus there was a song on there that I'd never heard before called "Shoot The Moon." I have all of their albums and I was like, okay, where'd this one come from? Anywho, if you haven't heard it yet, it's a great song. All of you partial to the "old" JMQ sound will especially Love it. All I can say is that if you ever have an opportunity to see JMQ live, DO IT (thank me later)! If you're impatient and can't wait for their next visit (like me) or you're just a fan of their music and/or performances (like me), treat yourself to this DVD and enjoy!"
More live DVD's, please!!!

"This performance was terrific. However, there are two reasons that I shorted it one star:
1. It doesn't come close to Jam's Live in Verona DVD in terms of crowd and camera involvement. The energy is a little subdued.
2. The audio just wasn't finished right. It's like the engineer forgot to tweak the last 10%. The overall audio quality is bright, so surround sound might seem a little overbearing. Stereo sounds good, but it's still missing a cleaner "live" sound (this may have to do with indoor vs. outdoor acoustics).
NOTE: I work at a high-end audio store, so I've been playing this using an $80,000 surround sound system; therefore, please don't let my critique steer you away from buying this disc by any means.
Other than those bits, the overall performance is stellar! Jamiroquai is an incredible live band. They do a great job at taking their studio songs and vamping them up with [acid] jazz, funk, fusion, and jam sessions in between. "Shoot The Moon" is a GREAT surprise!!! That song is filled with great riffs and a groovey chorus.
Buy this disc. But buy it only if you can't find Jamiroquai's Live in Verona (make sure it's REGION ZERO - plays in all DVD players) first. Either purchase will be thoroughly enjoyed. Cheers!"
One of the greatest DVD concert experiences!!

"I've been getting into Jamiroquai over the last few years, and was excited to finally pick up this concert DVD. Within the first few songs I knew this was going to be a fantastic concert experience. Most of the classics, new and old, are here. It also includes the catchy unreleased "Shoot The Moon", which if you're like me, you'll be singing to yourself for many days after. This performance also includes the greatest version of "Cosmic Girl" I have ever heard. It's so good in fact, that I'm bummed to not have an audio version of it on a CD release. "Traveling Without Moving" is another very memorable song on this DVD... especially for those of you like me who appreciate amazing bass work.
Overall, this performance has it all! Fantastic musicianship (killer bass, amazing keyboard work and busy percussion), Jay's spot-on vocals, great songs, colorful lights, and a great chilled-out atmosphere. Even the band's moments of spontaneity and humor in between songs are refreshing and entertaining. It has already placed itself among my very favorite concert DVDs.
If you're a Jamiroquai fan already, you'll absolutely love this DVD!! It's a must have for your collection! If you're not a fan or aren't familiar with Jamiroquai yet... watch this and you WILL be!"
Jamiroquai at Their Most Mediocre

"Jamiroquai can get a little long in the tooth when it comes to experimental jams on stage and this performance is no exception. Combine that with a bad mix of the songs - way too much reverb, improperly-compressed instruments, and muddy mid-range - you are left feeling unsatisfied at the end of almost every song. Jamiroquai CAN and DO sound good and play great - this rating is not their fault mostly. As far as visually, the direction is decent but the camera switching is sloppy. The HD signal is full of sharpening from post and looks quite low-end.
I love Jamiroquai in general - I feel bad for them that the production and post-production teams were so sub-par on this one."
