Heart has reached a level of nirvanic refinement in their music and it shines thruout this concert. Nancy's acoustic performance is extraordinary. Coupled with an excellent sound mixing that allows her guitar to finally be heard even in the heavy electric parts. She is omnipotent on the left channel with her crystal clear, passionate strumming.

Heart's performance constantly evolves. Old hits continues to sound "different" especially on a good night. And this is one helluva nite! Ann remains the foundation and soul of Heart - strong as a mountain. Alison Krauss brings a new, folksy dimension to Heart.

Highly recommended.

Good, but Heart is getting a little long in the tooth.

I LOVE HEART but I did not love this DVD. I was really disappointed in it. There were lots of "musical" problems (tempo, pitch, staying together as a band) and even the legendary Ann Wilson's vocals were shaky at times. Also there was no audience interaction. No funny stories, no history of the songs etc. Buy Heart Alive in Seattle, or the Dreamboat Annie DVD instead.

Missed again. April 27 2011
By BlankFrank - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
If this Blu Ray video demonstrates nothing else, it once again PROVES that those eggheaded, stuffed shirt buffoons at the record company (any and all of them) have no clue about what their customer wants. This video, in spite of how well Ann and Nancy perform, misses the mark on so many issues.

For starters, IMO, when people put down their hard earned cash to purchase a "concert" video, THAT'S WHAT THEY WANT. They want to see the show "as is", not some 'special presentation', not some 'filmed exclusively for' event and certainly NOT some show that has been so heavily edited as this. Take 6 or 7 or 10 cameras, get the good angles, and film a typical concert that the band puts on night after night and publish that for a reasonable cost. The whole idea of editing, re-arranging the songs, cutting out the banter, close ups of heads only and cutting from one member back to the other after a full 2 seconds is ridiculous to say the least.

This concert video starts out weak and, flops around wildly for a bit and then just fizzles out completely after that. There are a few moments where the fire tries to revive itself, but then it quickly fades again before going out completely in the Blu Ray "special features". Opening with what has long been one of their closing and or encore numbers, "Barracuda" comes across mighty lame. No intro, not thundering guitar, no heavy drums, just a "playing" that sounds like it is rolling out of an AM radio. The songs has no fire, no intensity, just a heavy dose of lameness. They even appear to have a hard time getting the 'jam' rolling, though they do get it for a few minutes just before the song ends.

And from there the concert flops around like a fish out of water. All of the new songs are great and they DO blend well with the old standards and hits, but they are played, for the most part, "COLD". There's little to intro for the songs and the songs barely sound different than the studio versions from Red Velvet Car (which is a stunning CD in every regard and perfectly puts Heart back to their rightful position in the 21st century). Allison Krauss performs well, though she does steal a bit of thunder from Nancy by taking away one of her signature songs (leaving her to sing lead only one other time), but the performance seems to waste her talents and there is little interaction between the band members and Allison. She gets a light introduction from Ann, appears on stage, sings and then leaves. Huh?

Also missing from the video, the band. You can see that there is actually someone on the stage with Ann and Nancy, but you never get to "see" them. There is no interaction, the cameras never linger on them, nothing. You catch little glimpses of the band here and there in the background, and there is the occasional full stage shot, but otherwise you get nothing. All in all they come across as paid performers and not members of the band.

And then there's the crowd. To say that they seem "uninspired" would be like calling Michelangelo a 'house painter'. It appears that they are standing in a wide hallway (something the cameras try to avoid capturing), but there is NO interaction between the band and the audience or vice versa. There is barely a murmur when a hit songs is played, there is no "group participation", (no group sing along, no clapping with the music, no raising of the roof) and there's barely a sign of appreciation when the songs end. Everyone appears to be just standing there, as if they were paid for their participation. Probably the most striking thing is how small the crowd actually is.

And with a Blu Ray DVD there should always be more. The special features gives you some lame, and I don't mean to understate exactly how lame they were, "behind the scenes" peeks (ooooo, look, they are actually walking from their limo to their dressing room, how exciting) that were so disconnected as to leave me wondering why they were even included. There are 2 "bonus tracks", both taken OUT of the show and then added back as bonuses. WHAT? What lame-assed stuffed shirt record exec thought that was a great idea? What was the purpose of taking them out if your sole purpose seems to be nothing more than just moving them to a different place on the DVD? And that was it, nothing more.

On the up side.....blah, blah, blah.....good DTS mix.....blah, blah, blah......hit songs......blah, blah, blah....5 tracks from the new album.......blah, blah, blah.

I saw Heart twice on the Red Velvet Car tour and they killed. They were great. They played inspired. The crowds were enthusiastic before/during/after the show. The air was filled with electricity that was palpable, the fans were excited and then band used that to up the ante song after song. Unfortunately there is NONE OF THAT on this video. I love Heart, I LOVE the new album, I love seeing them live and I REALLY looked forward to their release of a concert video, but this falls flat on so many issues it would be extremely difficult for me to recommend this to people with limited budgets. If you happen to have $20 plus tax that you can afford to throw away, you just might not mind spending it on this DVD. If however you are a working stiff without a lot of disposable income, don't disappoint yourself and spend your money elsewhere.

Heart returns to Seattle for 2010 concert March 29 2011
By hyperbolium - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
As was heard on last year's Red Velvet Car, Ann Wilson's voice is still a power to be reckoned with, Nancy Wilson's still got instrumental chops, and the duo fits together like, well, sisters. Though the band's held a steady lineup (save bassist Ric Markmann, who's been replaced by Kristian Attard) since the release of Jupiter's Darling, the group can at times feel more like a backing combo for Ann and Nancy Wilson than a working concern. The guest appearance of Alison Krauss on three tracks is both a treat and a distraction. Her voice is uniquely beautiful as she sings "These Dreams," but it takes the song out of the realm of Heart. The same is true for the group's cover of Krauss & Plant's "Your Long Journey." It's a beautiful song, wonderfully sung by Krauss and Ann Wilson, but feels out of place amongst Heart's material.

The set list mostly sticks to the group's hits, non-charting singles and a few album tracks. There are five tunes from Heart's then-latest album, Red Velvet Car, and they blend seamlessly with material from the mid-70s and 80s. Ann Wilson still thrills with rock ballads, but doesn't always hit the high, powerful notes with the same authority of her younger years. That said, she's a cannier vocalist than thirty years ago, navigating around the minor limitations of age to imbue her singing with new textures and more dynamic range. Nancy Wilson sings lead (and plays autoharp) on "Hey You," Ann Wilson pulls out her flute for "Mistral Wind," and the near prog-rock jamming on "Mistral Wind" is superb. The main set closes with a rousing version of "Crazy on You," led off by some powerful, bluesy acoustic strumming.

This is far from a flawless performance - the band's jam on "Barracuda" breaks down before catching a second wind, and the signature riff of "Crazy on You" seems muddled (much more interesting is guitarist Craig Bartock's soloing on "Magic Man"). But it's a live show, and the band's got plenty of energy and great songs. The multi-camera video (shot in March 2010 at the Experience Music Project in Seattle) is well lit, and the editing is fluid; at times, two or three video streams are collaged Woodstock-style. There's little between-song patter, which leaves the set feeling compressed; one is left to wonder if the Wilsons simply don't talk much, or if the editors snipped away their interaction with the crowd. This is a nice complement to earlier heart live DVDs Alive in Seattle and Dreamboat Annie, and shows the Wilson sisters still rocking in their 50s. [©2011 hyperbolium dot com]

Great music; Poor quality DVD April 18 2011
By Big Daddy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It,s too bad that those responsible for creating this DVD used the same standards set to produce a poor quality VHS tape. The video is unacceptable and the audio is almost as bad. The only redeeming thing about the DVD is Heart.

Ann and Nancy do it again! April 1 2011
By hesperidae - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I own all the 'Heart' DVDs/Blu-Rays and this is becoming my fast favorite. The treatment they gave 'Never', by itself, is worth the price of admission. I was disappointed with Heart's 1980's era stuff (without Ann's voice, their self titled album from 1985 could have been Duran Duran or Haircut 100) and was immensely pleased at their treatments of the 80's era material. They make them 'sound' like Heart instead of over-produced, mass-appeal grandiloquence. The sound is pristine and they look and perform as well as they ever have. Nancy is in excellent form and Ann's voice can still drive nails. This is simply a must for any Heart fan. Their current band lineup is second only to the original. Ben Smith is a MONSTER on the drums! Buy. Enjoy. Love Rules. Heart Rawks!
