I expected to see a concert video. Concert videos never capture the emotion or power of a live concert but can still give a good feeling for the artist’s stage presence. With her magnificent voice I really looked forward to seeing how Amy Lee performs in concert. Instead I saw the work of a wanna-be music video editor who has no concept of what he’s doing. During songs like My Last Breath and Everybody’s Fool where Amy builds lyrically and musically to a climax with the chorus the editor carefully avoided showing her at the climax, frustrating the viewer who wants to see her connect with the audience. In true music video form no shot lasts more than 1-2 seconds, ruining the emotional impact of Amy’s music.
If whoever had creative control over this DVD had simply copied the Cranberries’ Paris concert video it would have been wonderful. Instead it was a total waste of my time and money.
Way back in ancient times (before Amy was even born) I did lights for concerts. Never did I think I was anything more than a medium to enhance the artist. Unfortunately, the producer and editor of this video think they are more important than Amy and her band. I still look forward to someday seeing what she is like in concert. Can’t tell from this horror.
