Movie Reviews

Good classic rock DVD starter kit
Blah Mcduh | Kingwood, TX United States | 04/13/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD, bought last year, was my first music/concert video purchase. It was a good choice and led to about 30 more purchases over the last 6 months or so. The video is clear, camera work is good and the sound is great. I was using an old Dolby Pro-Logic setup when I bought this but have since upgraded to a full DD 5.1/DTS home theatre system. This DVD sounded really good with my old system but, in comparison, sounds awesome now. In this concert (the songs are listed somewhere else on this page so I won't repeat them), Styx performs most of my favorites and the band is tight. I saw them live in Houston back in the 80's and again this year at the Rodeo in the Astrodome - not a good venue for concerts. But this live concert on DVD is better in many respects since you get to see the band close-up and the sound is almost as good as being there, if you have a good sound system. Also, I think the current Styx lineup misses something without the great voice of Dennis DeYoung. So, if you like the original Styx lineup, this is the DVD to get. Also, if you like to see closeups of the musicians when they are playing, the camera work with respect to that is fairly good. I've seen better on other DVDs but you do get some shots of JY and Tommy doing the riffs from some of the classic Styx hits. I would say this DVD a must-have for STYX fans and very entertaining for anyone else who likes "middle-of-the-road classic rock" (i.e. somewhere between "soft rock" and "heavy metal"). I give it 5 stars based on 1) video and camera work, 2) 5.1 sound track and 3) the fact that I've always liked Styx's music and most of my favorites are on this DVD."
I'm a fan, not a critic wannabee...

"Too many reviews are by people who want to be critics. Speaking as a Styx FAN, this DVD is INCREDIBLE!!! The only problem I have with it is that it should be LONGER!!! The rendition of "Renegade" is electrifying!!! I felt 15 years younger the first time watching it. Since Amazon doesn't list the songs on the disc, here they are...
Rockin' the Paradise
Blue Collar Man
Too Much Time On My Hands
Snowblind
Suite Madame Blue
Crysal Ball
Grand Illusion
Fooling Yourself
Show Me The WayBoat On The River
Loreli
Babe
Miss America

"The footage for this excellent video was filmed during the 1996 Styx tour in Rosemont, IL. All of the hits which made Styx one of the top bands of the late '70s and 80s are included in this fine video. Classics such as "Come Sail Away", "Renegade", and "The Best of Times" bring this video to life, but the two songs which, in my opinion, are the best of all are Dennis DeYoung's excellent rendition of "Lorelei" and Tommy Shaw's uplifting "Fooling Yourself". Jy even gets in some keyboard time on "Lorelei", while Tommy's unmatched acoustic guitar playing shines through on "Fooling Yourself". This video contains the original Styx line-up, minus original drummer John Panozzo, who passed away shortly before this video was released. However, new drummer Todd Sucherman ably fills John's considerable shoes and doesn't miss a beat. Fans of the original Styx line up will surely enjoy this look at the band in concert."
This DVD is definitely worth having.

"This DVD is definitely worth having. The sound quality is excellent, song selection is very good, and the performance is almost flawless. All that this video needs to truly take you back to the heyday of Styx is the powerful drumming of John (Rest In Peace) and some hair. Dennis DeYoung sounds great, Tommy Shaw displays even more guitar skill than on the studio recordings, Chuck Panozzo is animated and steady, and James Young shines through as a much larger contributor to the Styx sound than I ever gave him credit for being. The harmonies are a little rough early on, but really gel as the show progresses. The drummer (Todd Sucherman) is very good, and inserts some of his own flair into the songs without taking anything away from the spirit. The band changes the arrangement/structure of some songs (Suite Madame Blue, Grand Illusion), which I would have preferred not to have been done, but they are the one that are performing them, not me. If I had input into their performance, I would have asked for Man In The Wilderness, Great White Hope, and Mother Dear, to name a few. Anyway, I am very happy with this DVD, and would recommend it to any Styx fan. It is a great performance. Be warned that there are some silly actions on the part of the band, but if I were there live, I might not think this. Highlights - Snowblind, Renegade, Crystal Ball, Folling Yourself, Boat On The River. Lowlights - Too Much Time On My Hands, Grand Illusion. The DVD also has a few interesting extras (pictures, band footage) that make it even more of a value, but don't rip the case apart trying to find the nonexistent booklet. Rating - 5 Stars."
