  • Evanescence is a great band and I was anxious to get this DVD. After watching it, I can safely say that whoever handled the filming/lighting/editing, etc. of this concert should never work again. The DVD SOUNDS awesome, but that’s not the problem. The camera work is horrendous, the video editing is terrible, and the constant digital effects were extremely annoying. I’m surprised more people haven’t mentioned it. You hardly ever see a shot that lasts more than 2 seconds without jumping onto something else for another 2 seconds, and this continues over and over and over. I am not exaggerating. I got dizzy. Amy Lee is in excellent voice but they kept taking the camera off her when she was really hitting her vocal stride. They didn’t show the guitarists hardly at all, and we get numerous shots of the back of the drummer’s head. I wanted to see the band jamming! You won’t see that here unfortunately. Why would they do this? What a disappointment. There’s intentional out of focus shots, poor lighting, and an array of unnecessary video effects. The video technician must have got a new toy and didn’t know when to quit. I hope they release another concert DVD in the future that shows the band on stage, as you would see them in concert. This plays like one very long MTV video.
