I'm only 27 so my Heart knowledge is backfill anything before thier self titled 1985 album. I didn't discover most of the older tunes until I had graduated from High School. I'm amazed that Ann sounds exactly the same after all these years. At 51 years old, I would say she is not just sounding great for her age, but sounding great for any age and I thought they both looked gorgeous.
But, that's not why people will buy this, nor why they will like it. At least 30 minutes of the DVD is just the two of them, no band, playing and sounding amazing. And I should note they aren't playing and sounding amazing as far as being women goes... they are playing and sounding as good as anyone. Period.
A friend loaned me his copy. I wasn't aware that they had been on a tour, been recording an album, and that now one has been released. I am a bit dissapointed that Heaven and Break The Rock didn't make it on the new album, but the preview clips on thier website sound great and I'll definately be buying my first Heart album ever. I've had various songs on compilations but never an album so I have some catch up work to do.
Oh, and if you do like this DVD, get Toto's 25th anniversery DVD, Kansas' Device Voice Drum, and Journey's 2001 DVD. All of them are still sounding amazing. If you like Heart's heavy side, get Dream Theater's Metropolis Pt2 Live DVD... :)
Ok, done plugging. There are quite a few new bands I like, but I haven't seen any of the newer band's DVDs that match the quality in performance of these. I have to thank all these guys for continuing to push the definition of old to higher and higher numbers. It's proof I guess that you're only as old as you feel and act. :)
I have been a Heart fan for 15 years now.
And disappointed though I was with Heart's early 90's Brigade/Rock the House/Road Home... Read more
