5.0 out of 5 stars ASIA - circa 1990 delivers the goods during this live concert., Sept. 5 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
ASIA - Live In Moscow: 1990 - DVD/CD, Eagle Rock/Eagle Vision 2003 Release.

ASIA: Geoff Downes- Keyboards, Vocals
Carl Palmer- Drums, Vocals
Patrick Thrall- Guitars, Vocals
John Wetton- Lead Vocals, Bass, Acoustic Guitars

Asia as a live concert act in 1989/90 are a tight, well oiled machine. With Pat Thrall stepping into the bands guitar slot for this limited reunion tour after a 5 year plus hiatus, this Asia line up performs with a sharpness and musical skill that would compare to any top hard rock act who have been touring non-stop. Appearing in front of over 40,000 fans over 2 nights in Moscow, Russia at the Moscow Arena, Asia clearly gets a surge of energy from the rabid crowd. This release on both DVD/CD contains the band's sets from both nights. The band performs tracks from its total history of recorded releases: ASIA- Asia, ASIA- Alpha, ASIA- Astra and newly recorded songs in 1989/90 from ASIA- Then & Now. The original Asia members: Downes, Palmer & Wetton always quality musicians, step their performances up a notch. For myself the MVP of this project is the guitar skills of Pat Thrall. His style and tone give the Asia catalog a more aggressive and heavy edge. The guitarists crisp and melodic solos easily compare and elevate any of the recorded studio work by previous Asia guitarists: Steve Howe(asia- alpha), Mandy Meyer(astra) and Steve Lukather(then & now). This release is highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shinedown on their 1st album tour cycle., June 8 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a very enjoyable DVD. Shinedown's original line-up had more of a carefree rock n roll vibe than later versions of the band. Although both versions have excellent musicians in their ranks the original members had more swagger in their steps, free to talk about the benefits and destruction of alcohol & drugs on the touring road as seen in the extra tour document included within the dvd.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jonas & Massive Attraction, Keep The Flame Burning Strong For A Hi-Energy Classic Hard Rock Sound, Jan. 7 2014

This review is from: Jonas Live As We Roll (DVD)
After seeing a few videos("Big Daddy","Like A River"and "Edge Of Seventeen") of the band from the 1st Jonas recording in 2005. Jonas was chosen to open all dates on the Van Halen- Greatest Hits Tour with Sammy Hagar. While Van Halen clearly struggled with their on-stage chemistry due to feuding between Sam vs Ed over Eddie's pre-show drinking that was starting to compromise the guitar hero's on-stage performance and Sam vs Alex, Ed's manager. Reviews for the tour were mixed at best but for the amazing shows put on by Jonas as they stormed the stage every night with a confidence of seasoned pros! This live concert dvd filmed at the end of that tour with Van Halen finds the boys in Jonas taking to the stage at a sold out show in Montreal. Lead singer Jonas Tomalty may have the best new hard rock voice to come along in a generation. With a combination of power & finesse, think of Jim Morrison meets Paul Rodgers. Yes its very high praise to associate Jonas Tomalty with those legends but in my opinion, he is just that good. Period. In Corey Diabo, Jonas have a guitarist with skills that shine like a diamond. Catch the emotion he uses in his solo in the live version of "Like A River", its amazing! He shows us his mastery over his instrument, dazzling with stunning licks & riffs! Diabo has the knack of laying down his solos using a guitarists bag of tricks without ever making the listener think he is over playing. Jonas & Massive Attraction give hard rock fans some music they can really sink their collective teeth into as they enjoy the bands strong songwriting and skillful on-stage performances

5.0 out of 5 stars D.C. & WHITESNAKE still magic!, May 9 2013

This review is from: Made in Japan [Import] (DVD)
This musical document shows what happens when u have a talent base on the stage that is near perfection! Great audio/visuals bring this concert from the arena and into your living rooms. Newer songs from the long play's released during the decade of the 2000's hold their own along with the classic Whitesnake faves. Now I finally know why Robert Plant shrugs off D.C. The man and his talent. its because he is jealous of ground D.C. Continues to break, writing, recording and touring amazing hard rock documents even as D.C. might be in the winter of his career. Even tho I love Plants pass work, we must give credit when credit is due when D.C. & Whitesnake are cementing the bands musical legacy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ministry - Fix, April 21 2013
Well not versed in the internal politics of past and present members of Ministry like others who have written reviews here on Amazon. I did enjoy this film. At points it was hard to tell if some scenes from the bands tour in 1996/97 were serious on the spot spur of the moment acts or planned out before filming. All in all I really liked this production. Ministry is a band that has lived in the shadows of the music scene. Not wanting or not able to embrace media coverage that would help the bands image and selling of product, Ministry remains a could of, would of, should of image of ground breaking music artists and a career run into the ground by writers block brought on by addiction.

Temple of rock is a great dvd. Quality a/v makes for amazing viewing and listening of this great guitarist. Although Michael Schenker has had show business ups and downs thru out his recording and touring life but he really pulls himself together for this release. With the help of former Scorpions Herman and Francis and lead vocals from Doogie White the overall talent rises higher than any other M.S.G. release.

5.0 out of 5 stars REM - Road Movie - DVD, April 6 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: R.E.M. Road Movie > (VHS Tape)
I love this dvd! Anyone who says it sounds bad, music mix audio etc. Well they must be playing the disc on a cheap system. To me, this is REM's punk/hard rock era, a real rock band! The setlist is awash in a wall of distortion in both amps in guitars! Even older hits are given a heavy guitar make over. The punk attitude of the band during this era is awesome, the this is the way we sound, like it or not! I like the use of a 2nd guitarist in order to get the heavy distorted guitar mix across to the fans in the building and in the mix of Road Movie. Those who think REM are about Shiny Happy People and Losing My Religion well this dvd is not for you! Rock music is about taking chances and that is why I love REM during the Monster/Road Movie era!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bach Still A Musical Force, Feb. 26 2013
Sebastian Bach has taken hold of the hard rock/metal flame starting with the excellent Angel Down CD and into the powerful Kicking & Screaming CD. When Bach is surrounded with talent his talent rises to the level where it should be, in a class of its own. On Angel Down Bach teamed up with Roy Z, Halford, Bruce Dickinson, and good songs and production was the result. On this newest effort Bach finds guitar hero in waiting Nic Sterling. The young,20, talent has chops to run with any guitar player and he can write songs, The result is excellent! Kicking & Screaming hits all the buttons for a hard rock/metal classic! Bach uses his voice to perfection, drawing out all the emotions that are within the music. I have the deluxe version with dvd with shows some recording of the long play unit. Also we get the 3 videos for the singles and bonus live in concert songs from the Angel Down and Kicking & Screaming tours. The Bach band is in fine form in both instruments and voice. Now looking forward to the Sebastian Bach live concert video in March 2013 will be amazing if the live concert songs on Kicking & Screaming deluxe edition dvd are any indication!

This review is from: Tapes of Wrath (DVD)
A very cool history of Ministry thru video time travel ! Its cool to see all the changes the band has gone thru. The amazing power of Al and the boys thru the history of Ministry. Its not the type of music that everyone can get into but then that is the point is it not?

5.0 out of 5 stars Robert Plant & Band Of Joy Stir Your Soul, Jan. 27 2013
Although Robert Plant no longer has the screaming blues pitch that was able to leap tall scales in a single bound, he now has a soul stirring mature tone to his voice on the songs recorded on this dvd. It is great that a artist can move into his 60's & still produce quality music. Robert surrounnds himself with the best musicians in order to bring out the sound he has going on in his head. I'm excited that we get to view it on dvd. Now please release a dvd with all the videos that have been filmed from his solo CD's. I know of the box-set but seems it was missing some videos. Plus not everyone can purchase the cost of a box-set.
