'Garbage - One Mile High...Live' [Blu-ray]
(Garbage / Blu ray / NR / 2013 / Eagle Eye Media)
Overview: After a five year break, 2012 saw Garbage back in the spotlight with a new studio album Not Your Kind Of People followed by their first world tour for seven years. Filmed on this tour at the Ogden Theatre in Denver, Colorado on October 6th, One Mile High...Live is the first ever DVD release of a full Garbage live concert.
Blu ray Verdict: OMG! This Garbage concert is pure bliss. The camera work focused on the concert and didn't rely on any gimmicks through out the entire performance. The band sounds better than ever and chose a wide range of material from their entire catalog. If you've seen the NY Garbage concert on Youtube this Denver concert will put that one to shame on every account!
Indeed, This concert video was produced with a more "like you are there" approach. No overproduced, video filters, distracting zooms, or quick edits. It is a high quality production that allows you to enjoy the performance of the band instead of endure a video director's gimmicks. I have seen too many concert videos with behind the scene montages, two second edits, and other nonsense right in the middle of the show. Who wants that?
This production on the other hand lets you feel what it would be like to actually be at the show. The sound was approached the same way. It is very close to, if not directly from, a sound board recording. I was not aware of any post production tweaking that usually turns a concert into a studio sounding recording. Finally a band that is confident enough to allow a concert video to actually be about the concert.
