More Live - An honest review from a CL fan

"Without a doubt, Crystal stands-out among her peers in the Contemporary Christian music genre. Enjoying her music CDs for several years now, I couldn't wait to get home from the store to watch her live concert DVD. After viewing it, I thought the recording showcased her talents well, along with the good performance delivered by her band. That said, there were a few serious technical no-no's that should not have gotten by Metro1 Music's production crew. Most distracting was the apparent use of a white-hot spotlight on Crystal's face throughout the concert. The lighting over-kill resulted in giving Crystal a distracting "Casper" glow. In addition, the production had a decade or so earlier feel to it and did not seem as polished as it could have been. As for packaging, the keep-case liner notes were missing - strange. These concerns could easily be ignored if this were a budget DVD offering, however, this one is not. On a positive note though, Metro1 Music did include a B-side with some extras many will find appealing. Rating (1-5): Artistic 5, Technical 2, Packaging 2"

"Love it love it love it! I love the music, and the sincerity that shines through Crystal's voice. Fantastic band, they played exceptionally well. I enjoyed every song and particularly the extras on the collectors edition DVD. Can't help but dance to the fast songs, and can't help but be moved by the slower songs. Even though there was an encore, I still wanted MORE!"
What A Woman!

"I was expecting a great concert and got exactly that. What the band lacked in stage presence they certainly made up for in musicianship. The camera work is a little unusual, but it doesn't take long to get used to. If you're a true Crystal Lewis fan, then you'll love this DVD. If the concert wasn't enough for you, there's some great outakes which show how she can turn some embarrassing moments into something comical. The film clip of 'More' as well as the making of the film clip. If you've not heard this divine woman of God before, then you'll certainly be converted once you've seen and heard her in action."
