Dido live surpasses her studio albums -- excellent performan
Furiae | USA | 08/24/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If I were to have one complaint about Dido, it would be her studio tracks are a little *too* laid back and they sometimes get monotonous if you're not in the mood for them. Nevertheless, I love her songwriting and she ranks with up there with Poe as far as lyrical excellence is concerned. Her lyrics are subtle, sophisticated, and well-crafted. Here on her live DVD, my one complaint towards her is revoked, removed, and I've re-experienced Dido at her finest. Her live performance is where the missing spark can be found; her energy comes through blasting and blaring and she takes you for a memorable ride.

As a casual fan, what surprised me was her undeniable charm and charisma. Along with her energy, these elements of her just don't come through on her studio albums nor in her videos. She's also got quite a facetious, lively sense of humor (which she shares with the audience between songs). This makes the music that much more accessible. I found I didn't need to be 'in the mood' for her music to watch her concert. Like her music, Dido herself is captivating in a subdued, subtle manner. The band, the singing were all top-notch and I have no complaints about the music. Dido, her band, and the audience all looked as if they were having the time of their lives, and it definitely shows. The music was all terrific, and so good was this concert that it prompted me to re-visit some songs I didn't particularly like and give them a second chance after seeing it live on the DVD. That's a sure sign a concert was a winner for me.

Fans of Dido will not want to miss banter and conversations that happen in between songs. She shares (briefly) some information about the song she's going to sing next, which is quite nice. She never gets too carried away (y'know how some singer-songwriters make less and less sense the more they talk about their song?) and always stays grounded and makes complete sense. Surprisingly, she's also quite funny! (And guys, my husband watched this DVD and he assures me she's quite hot, as well.)

Now, on to a very important reason I love this DVD: no. psychotic. editing! (Yay! Yay! Yay!) After being so very, very, very disappointed with Sheryl Crow's "C'mon America" and Sarah McLachlan's "Afterglow Live," I was afraid Dido's DVD was going to follow the 'nauseatingly choppy and twirly rockstar' trend. (Note: I love those two ladies and I thought their performances were top-notch. This isn't an attack on Sheryl or Sarah's performances--I just couldn't stand editing of the video) I've said repeatedly on Amazon that I wish that trend would die because I literally get motion sick watching concerts that do their editing that way (where the camera doesn't linger on any one shot for more than 5 seconds) and those DVDs are absolutely unwatchable. (I'm 24, so no, it's not an age issue.) So, if you can sympathize with this, fear not! Dido has not succumbed and this DVD is more than watchable. The only complaint I can see is that the video quality isn't crystal clear. It reminded me a bit of Sarah McLachlan's 'Mirrorball.' I, however, enjoyed the look of it because it lent a certain atmosphere and feel to the DVD that complemented it very well.

Ever since Sarah McLachlan's 'Mirrorball,' I haven't found a concert DVD that's compelled me to watch and re-watch a concert as often as I did with 'Mirrorball.' Dido's done it for me, though, and it's quite a pleasure to see her perform. This is one of the concerts that will get watched often in my house. I will be anxiously awaiting her next CD, DVD, tour, etc."
Charming Dido keeps fans Enthralled

"What started as a promotional tour for Dido's latest album release "Life For Rent", one stop at Brixton Academy captures a rare digital performance of Dido in front of live audience singing songs from both her old and new albums alike.

Superb audio video quality with some jolly comments about each song are great perks for all enchanted fans out there. Many of the songs' new renditions with very unique signature vocal work of Dido are simply very Dido-original!

ALERT: Audio CD contains spyware
Whaledad | Texas, USA | 11/28/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The DVD is great, but the Audio CD that comes with it contains the SunnComm spyware, which installs silently, is hidden, informs SunnComm of your listening behavior, and is near impossible to remove. So, don't play this Audio CD on your PC! No problems if you play it on a normal CD player."
