Scored 7. Drums and more with good use of the surround channels. The video interview is worthwhile. It shows brief snippets of what the Blue Man Group does on stage and provided background for those like myself who have never seen them live.
I love this album.
It's just superb.
The mix is very discrete & aggressive - no mucking around here - just a fast grab for the throat.
Only played it in the studio so far, so have not seen any of the visuals at all, but I don't much care as this one is going to be played and played and played.
The 2 covers I picked up on - White Rabbit & I Feel Love - are done how a cover should be done, and not merely a copy of the original versions.
The range of guest vocalists is also very good, as there is no way at all to get bored listening to this album.
Highly recommended - well worth buying.
What? You're still reading, and not buying? Fie, sir. Fie.
(five point one bananas from me)
I like this album musically even better than Audio (their first DVD-A). To have vocalists on about half of the tracks gives more variation. It also fits the concept of "The Blue man is observing and reacting to our behaviour (at Rock Concerts and living in a big block of houses (the Complex))."
The sound and the surround mix are top notch with very good dynamics and lots of details. Because they have used up to 50(!) tracks of drums and percussion alone, for some of the "songs", there was more than enough to work with.
Liners notes are on screen for a while after the start of each track.
I just got this one recently and it is impressive. I hadn't heard the album previously and don't own the other DVD-A, "Audio", which appears to be highly regarded also. This one gets an 8, the mix is just perfect and fidelity first rate.
Late comer to the Blue Man Group, as I got The Complex yesterday (very long trip from Mexico).
The mix is fantastic and the music is great fun, my head is banging all the time while I work.
My only complaint is the tree shaped menu, I cannot find the logic to get to some of the branches.
