5.0 out of 5 stars Simply one of the best headphone albums ever!, Jan. 24 2012
This review is from: Shine (Audio CD)
Daniel Lanois is well known for his work with acts like U2, Bob Dylan and Peter Gabriel. Also well know as a musician/composer from his solo work and Black Dub. But his engineering job on Shine is sheer genius. The way the instruments come and go and the vocals move around are nothing short of amazing. Definitely best enjoyed with a good set of headphones...crank it up and take an hour off from the real world.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a great performance from a great band!, April 12 2004
This review is from: Deep Purple - Perihelion (DVD)
This dvd is not what any Deep Purple fan should call great. The band plays fairly well but Ian Gillan needs to contemplate retirement. His performance here pales in comparison to his earlier dominance of rock frontmen. It's obvious he realizes it as he appears uncomfortable while struggling to hit his mark throughout the concert. Perhaps the boys should look for a younger frontman who has the pipes to lead this band. Steve Morse does ok replacing Blackmore but just ok. One bright star is John Lord who, to my knowledge, has since retired...too bad because he can still do his part. Overall sound is pretty good but video is weak by today's standards.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best concert dvds available, April 12 2004
TOTO Live in Amsterdam-25th is quite simply one of the best concert dvds available on the market today. The performance, sound and video are all top notch. Even the extras are well worth checking out. You don't have to be a TOTO fan to enjoy this one but it helps. I've turned some friends on to buying dvd concerts just by slapping this one in and playing 2-3 songs.
