"Besides the release of "Love Album", Westlife also released their 2006 world tour "Face to Face" DVD. This time, the whole show was recorded at Wembley! Mark is my favorite member in Westlife, but I find myself enjoying Shane more this time! Mark's performance is unsteady, while Shane performed better than the albums. Finally, fans can listen to Nicky's and Kian's awesome voices again! Although Nicky's vocal is not strong, his voice is really soothing and gentle; Kian's vocal is surprisingly good, it makes me wonder why he doesn't contribute more to Westlife's album!
The tour consisted of classic Westlife songs ("Flying Without Wings", "Mandy", "Swear It Again", etc), unexpected good old songs ("Seasons in the Sun", "Queen of My Heart"), new songs from the album "Face to Face" ("You Raise Me Up", "Hit You With The Real Thing", "Amazing", etc), and exciting medleys! They also sang "The Dance", which is not a better version than the "Love Album" version, but I really love that song! Overall, another Westlife tour that should not be missed! Westlife will have their brand new tour in 2007, but until then, enjoy this DVD!"
Surprisingly entertaining for a pop show.

"The tour does leave out Westlife's traditional continuous ten-minute medley section in its setlist, but does include excellent big band renditions of their hit "Uptown Girl" and a "She's Back/ Billie Jean" mesh. The DVD's opener, "Flying Without Wings" is another highlight, and the best live version I've heard to date due to Mark's outstanding vocals.
Other highlights include "World of Our Own" and "Mandy" (Shane and Mark harmonize surprisingly well on this one). All in all Westlife sound great live on this DVD. Mark turned it up a notch and made the entire show a lot better (you don't have to put up with him missing many notes this time!)

"Westlife, you either love them or hate them, but no one can deny their talent. These four young men from Ireland just continue to entertain year after year. The group's annual concert DVDs are a great way for fans abroad to experience the Westlife phenomenon in their own living rooms. It's the next best thing to being there! This is one of their best.
On a technical note, this DVD is Region 0 (free) but is a PAL encoded disc (not NTSC as the description says) so it still requires a PAL converting DVD player in order to play it in the USA."
