Music solid, video sub-par

"Let's start with the band. The slogan "Got moe?" is perfect (and my personalized license plate). If you get the band, than this DVD is for you. The music quality is great, with a few DTS and DD 5.1 tricks. The songs are tight and jams are quite imaginative. Video quality is sub-par. It gives the impression of a mid 80's MTV debut video. It has too much of a "video quality" and lacks the warmth of a "film quality". The scan lines are too obvious on a 55" HD monitor and detract from the viewing experience. Additionally, the viewing angles are too obscure, and typically last for only seconds before a zoom in/out, angle change, or camera change. Continuity is not there. I prefer longer image lengths and a much less sharp image - i.e. Talking Head's Stop Making Sense or String Cheese's efforts.
I'm not complaining, and love the band. I could not wait to get this DVD, and pre-ordered it from the band. It is even a limited edition copy signed by each of them. Again, I am happy just to have a DVD to accompany my 12 CDs and 100's of hours of audience recordings. I can easily look over the video issues. Overall, a very grateful moe.ron.
Moe. is worth the dough!

""Live from the Fillmore" is a very good snapshot of a moe. show. In terms of benefits, the setlist is satisfying. Many songs from the moe. canon are featured. The highlight may be 'Timmy Tucker > Tailspin.' While not a five star setlist, the selections demonstrate music with extended improvisation and good song craftsmanship. Also, the audio quality is excellent. Currently, this is the only way to enjoy the band in a surround sound environment. The audio editor did good work; typically, the audience is enjoyed in the rear speakers while the band is heard from the front. In terms of drawbacks, the video quality is mediocre. Pixilation is apparent to the extent that "Live from the Fillmore" often looks like a good fan generated download. Fortunately, the video editing and original videography is well done -the problem seems to lie in the final transfer. Some of the interviews are informative as when the band discusses their formation. Other parts are predictable, as when the audience is described as being the sixth member. While moe. has played better shows, this is still a persuasive view of a great live band. For the uninitiated and fans alike, "Live from the Fillmore" is a compelling portrait of one of the scene's best jambands."
Moe DVD is good but the same show on HDTV was better

"All it all, I really enjoyed this capture of a moe event. One thing I should note, I have previously seen them on HD TV and recorded the show on my set top box. The quality of the show on HD TV was/is excellent particularly the video portion. I then bought this DVD and discovered it was the same show. I noticed to my surprise that the quality of the video on the DVD didn't hold a candle to the same show that I recorded off of HD TV. It's not my gear since I have many rock shows on DVD that are of phenomenal video quality. Did someone at the production company cut costs on this disc? Seems like it to me. Still, a great show. Buy it anyway."
