Always liked Josh Homme, and Queens and Kyuss and his thing with Grohl and J.P.J., "Them Vultures What Weren't Straight" (Grohl even played with "Queens" for a while I think), and even recently dug something new to me, Josh with Eagles Of Death Metal. The two things I appreciate most about the man are a: his resolve and longevity... he broke into the music business as a teenager, has never looked back, has played with EVERYBODY, and is today quietly one of the most influential writers, performers and producers in rock music, and b: his seemingly effortless ability to write interesting, timely, thought-provoking songs....... and still mercilessly beat the living s*** out of his guitar!
Yes, I like it loud, and this DVD is really kind of a perfect storm for me. It is a study (a VERY successful one) on what electric guitars and basses (and they're all detuned... it's what all the kids are doing) can sound like given the proper amplification and the proper accompaniment of a ridiculously huge powerhouse drummer. This concert film is big, ugly, loud and scary!... And if you like Petulia Clarke... you're gonna freakin' HATE it!
Still interested? Cheers, all!

I needn't have worried. This version of Queens is a monster.
See, I highly dig LULLABIES..., but it doesn't really have a strong 'band' presence to it, probably due, I hate to admit it, to the absence of Nick Oliveri. What's good about this effect is that it really makes the strength of the songwriting stand out...
The great thing about this CD/DVD is that when a bunch of talented, tight and passionate musicians like the ones assembled here tear into these songs, they find all kinds of fresh new blood in those veins. Joey Castillo pounds the hell out of his kit, very ably stepping in for Mr. Grohl on the SONGS... songs, and propelling the new stuff into Rock God Valhalla. It's also awesome to watch Troy Van Leeuwen and Alain Johannes from Eleven and The Desert Sessions trade off instruments like the virtuosos they are. Natash Shneider (also of Eleven and the Desert Sessions) adds just the right elements, musically and aesthetically, and the JoshMan himself is in perfect form, whether firing off a face-melting solo, hitting all the targets with that laser-perfect falsetto, or verbally destroying a would-be heckler who tries to ruin the show.
Oh, and a note to Travis:
Enough already with the 'hardcore fan' routine. If you're really a hard-core fan of QOTSA, you would know that Nick Oliveri wasn't an original member, although he did come to be an important collaborator with Josh Homme. Look, Nick is awesome and all, but he's also a crazy motherf***er who got kicked out of the DWARVES, for cryin' out loud. I wouldn't believe anything he said in some rock rag any more than I would believe any of Josh's myriad versions of events. It was personal, it was business, but it wasn't OUR business. The QOTSA flag flys with Josh, so love it or leave it, just like Oliveri.
P.S. Looks like Mark Lanegan didn't get fired after all, doesn't it?
Simply put, if you're a serious Queens fan this CD/ DVD is essential.
Excellent sound quality on the audio CD- I especially loved the extended versions of You Can't Quit Me Baby (one of my all time favourite Queens songs), No One Knows, Song for the Dead and Long Slow Goodbye. Josh Homme is in great voice and the band is super tight throughout.
The DVD is also very enjoyable just to see a band totally engrossed in their own world and music. Excellent and very varied setlist- you get to hear a lot of older Queens material as well as rare tracks such as the mellow I Wanna Make It Wit Chu from the Desert Sessions and Fun Machine, a lost track from the wonderful Lullabies to Paralyze. Cool bonus features with guests and former band members such as Dave Grohl, Nick Oliveri and Mark Lanegan, but the picture and sound quality varies quite a lot. Heads up on another cool feature: you get a commentary if you change the audio setup to French. If you're expecting theatrics and pyrotechnics you've come to the wrong place, for Queens it's really all about the music.
And one last warning for all the **** smokers out there, better pick a different show to heckle at next time ;).
What I really appreciate is that Josh really seems to care for his fans. For the price of one CD, you get the live CD and then a 2-hour show shot in HD (widescreen 16:9) and mixed in surround (The liner notes don't say if there is a DTS 5:1 mix).
But more importantly, the DVD shows the band at their best. You can really see the joy of five musicians making music. What I'm most happy about is the song selection of the DVD.
As much as I love PTL, Queens put a lot more emphasis on their older material and some B-Sides. If your a Queens fan, you have to buy this!
When I finally decided to purchase this DVD I was a little worried. ( I owned songs for the deaf, and downloaded every single, and a whole bunch of random songs.) I didnt know if an entire DVD would entertain me. I saw them recently on tour, And they are Incredible. The live accuracy of the (ever-evolving) band was perfect. You hear almost EXACTLY what they have on their studio recordings.
Luckily, their album sounds, and live show COLLIDES into this wonderful set of discs.
During the first batch of songs("Flow" through "little sister") I felt like all I did was spend $15 bucks. But at some point I finally realised I was completely engrossed. A Perfect balance of familiarity and Improv. And of course, the DVD goes on for TONS of songs after that!. I Wish I could come up with a fault of this recording. But there isn't any. Great Sound, Good Song selection, Awesome Visual/Angle Imagery.
It also has alot of Hilarous crowd interaction and Clips
If your just skimming this review, This is a Great DVD/CD set. The Sound Quality is listenable, not like cheap LIVE recordings. PERFECT for putting on in the background. And ABSOLUTELY AMAZING to sit down and watch with the lights dimmed, maybe a couple drinks. = )
