Product Description

Product Description

TRILOGY - Blu-Ray Movie

Amazon.ca

An ambitious yet practical idea, Trilogy underscores the tonal and lyrical connections between three of the Cure's darkest albums in the last 20 years. The restless, ever-changing band, fronted by goth-gloomster Robert Smith, took up residence at the Tempodrom Berlin for a couple of nights in late 2002 for the express purpose of playing the group's 1982 Pornography, 1989's Disintegration, and 2000's Bloodflowers live and in their entirety. Whether it was a good idea or not depends on one's point of view. All three sets are long on droning, funereal rhythm sections, thick guitar lines that carry good pop melodies to overstylized destruction, and Smith's own cracked, morose vocals. On the other hand, fine distinctions emerge: The Disintegration portion of the show is lightest on its feet, with lush orchestration on "Plainsong," a hint of swing on "Lovesong," and cinematic tendencies in the stirring "The Same Deep Water as You." The rest of the concert is numbing. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to the DVD edition.

The pornography set sounds amazing, much better than on the murky album when the band was not as experienced. Even the 2 bonus tracks, especially "The Kiss", sound awesome. The picture quality is quite incredible; I had to magnify quite a bit to notice any grain. And the camera work is nicely done. The performances are also pitch perfect and precise, so if you didn't like the "Show" or "Paris" albums for their improvisational qualities and off-beatedness, this is for you. A great buy.

Format: DVD
This is something that most Cure fans have probably waited for since the invention of the DVD, an accurate, vivid portrayal of The Cure on stage. After seeing The Cure twice on the "Dream Tour", I've spent the past four years looking for bootlegs and such, and this is much better than any bootleg I can find. The 'Pornography' set is the most enlightening one because they've performed these songs much, much less than the ones from the other two sets (save 'One Hundred Years' which has been a staple of every tour since the Porn Tour). Robert even said that 'A Short Term Effect' hasn't been done since the Porn Tour in 1982, in Europe. In a live setting, these songs sound just as intense and abrasive as their studio counterpart. Jason does a great job on the drums, definitely outdoing Lol Tolhurst. The 'Disintegration' set is much like the album, dreamy and visual. The lighting on 'Plainsong' is just plain beautiful, and the spider backdrop of 'Lullaby' is just plain cool (makes me wonder why they never did it on the Dream Tour). The 'Bloodflowers' set is just as I remembered it, and with the exception of a few tune-ups, is almost a sterile reproduction of the studio work. (Echo effects on Robert's voice on the "YEAH!" in 'Watching Me Fall' and a drum machine used on 'There Is No If...' like on the 2000 versions). The encore performances of 'If Only Tonight We Can Sleep' and 'The Kiss', both from the 'Kiss Me' album break the flow of the 'Trilogy', but who cares, they are phenominal performances and make this DVD even more amazing. (Check out 'The Kiss'!!) This only makes me thirst for more live performances on DVD, I'd love to upgrade my VCD of 'In Orange' to DVD.
The sound quality is superb and the video quality is as well. The production of the disc is good, and the menus are all easy to use.

Ok, First of all, I have this on DVD, and I would have to say that it was ALOT better than I thought it would be, I was already a Huge Cure fan Before I seen this DVD, But after seeing them play live for the first time, When I first watched this, I was blown away, I really didnt know The Cure was anything like this, I didnt know that Robert Cussed, I didnt know They could get that Dark, Heavy and Crazy, I didnt even know that Robert Was actually that B.A. on Guitar, and I Loved It!, They have to be one of the greatest bands out there in My Opinion, They have been around for the longest time, and their still out there rocking. The sound quality on this DVD is amazing, its really good, and the picture, I like it alot, with all the lighting and movement with the music, it goes great with it, I love watching the "Pornogrophy" set, BloodFlowers is My Second Favorite, I Love that album, and Disintegration is really good too, but I'd have to say its My Least Favorite on This DVD, Its an awesome set, but It may be because I'm most familiar with that Album than I am the rest and I realized that its a little different, especially "LoveSong" I couldnt wait to hear that song when I put this DVD in for the first time, but It was too different. My Most favorite part on The DVD is prolly the Encore tho, it is SO AWESOME, they play a few songs off of "Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me", I Love "The Kiss" Part, Robert was Jamming on Guitar and Screaming Like Crazy, It Rules!. another part on the DVD that is cool is how they always zoom in on the keyboardest, He never moves, SomeTimes they zoom in on His face and He doesnt Blink, its sorta freaky sometimes, but its completly awesome, I recomend This DVD to any Cure fan, and anyone who has or hasnt seen them live, I love this DVD and watch it alot, I Can't Wait to see them in July (2004), its gonna rule!, Check This DVD out, it rules! (I've had it about 7 Months and watch it weekly)

ok, yes it's true that the songs aren't the same as on the albums. in this case that's not necessarily a bad thing. when songs are played live hundreds of times, you have to expect some variation and improvisation.

visually, the dvd is rather.. quiet. The Cure has never been known as a particularly rocking band as far as a stage show, rather the songs are deep and moving all on their own. the visual cuts and blurs during the Pornography set are quite good though.
sonically, it's amazing. having only heard The Cure on studio CDs, hearing and seeing them live is quite an experience. the energy and passion put into the songs live, is simply breathtaking.
while all three sets are very good, for me the Pornography set stands out. listening to it, i heard some of the most amazing sounds i've ever heard in a song. to say that's it's not like the album is something like saying A Clockwork Orange, the film, wasn't quite as good as A Clockwork Orange, the literary work. they're both masterpieces in respective mediums.
simply put, if you like the Cure even a little, do pick up this DVD. you won't regret it.
