  1. There was a time when Heart was a straight-up tough Led Zeppelin type of group. The way they interact and play off each other, they have evolved into a sort of hard rock Indigo Girls type of group. Where’s the group unity? It’s all about Ann & Nancy and that is obvious here. Ann is a shell of her former self. She should be forbidden from ever performing live again. Nancy looks all burnt out.

  2. Not sure if this is a fair review of this HD-DVD or merely a reflection on my player, but just like David L. below, I had the same issue while trying to play this disc on my Xbox 360 HD-DVD player. Just like he said, it doesn’t want to load past the production co. logo. If you wait long enough, it loaded the title screen for me, but trying to navigate through the menu resulted in an action not supported message and trying to hit play resulted in a lengthly pause followed by a return to the FBI warning screen and that same prod. co. logo and eventually the title screen again. The only other issue I’ve had with an HD-DVD on my X360 player was with Superman Returns, which was related to a well-known freeze-up problem in some copies, and after an exchange from the store, I got one that worked fine. Maybe the same is true for this one as well. Frustrating when I was looking forward to a great live show, but no delivery. . .

  3. My HD-DVD also does not work on the 360 add on. I tried the press OK and everything else I could think of. This disk just freezes right after the production logo when it should be going to the menu. This is the only HD-DVD disk that I’ve had a problem with and I have about 10 of them. I didn’t purchase the Chicago disk as I already have it and didn’t think it was worth the HD purchase. I did purchase the Eagles HD-DVD and it is excellent. That one also has a trick to it. It defaults to a PCM stereo file so you have to triger it to the DTS ON mode and then it is amazing. I hope its true that microsoft is working on a patch for Heart. I saw them last year and they were fantastic. Not as good as the old days but neither am I. They still surprised me that they sounded sooo good.

    **** UPDATE**** Since Amazon doesn’t have acceptible response.

  4. Being a huge Heart fan, I expected so much more from this dvd. What you basically get is a 103 minute performance of Heart running through some of their biggest and best known songs from the early years (only three total from “Heart”, “Bad Animals” and “Brigade”) as well as some covers and new songs from “Jupiter’s Darling”. The results are mixed.

    I’m going to start with the high points. The version of “These Dreams” is without a doubt the best version ever. Nancy and Ann pour so much soul into it, and the fact that isn’t surrounded by a pile of snythesizers make it the definitive version. “Magic Man”, “Barracuda” (which I didn’t recognize at first) and “Wild Child” absolutley rock. They are probably the best performances on the disc other than “These Dreams”. Finally, “Straight On”, “Crazy On You”, “Love Alive”, “Dreamboat Annie” and “Dog And Butterfly” work well.

    Now for the low points. For starters, there’s the performance of the group’s other number one hit. While the performance of “These Dreams” works well without all the 1980s’ synthesizers and other studio effects, “Alone” lacks the intense excitement of the single version, a big part of which was from the synthesized production. “Mistral Wind” gets off to a strong start but just drags on and on and become monotonous and boring. The new songs are dreadful, with only “Sister Wild Rose” coming off as decent. Finally, there are inferior covers of two Led Zeppelin songs and Elton John’s “Mona Lisas And Mad Hatters”.

    This is definitely a dissapointment for longtime Heart fans. For a better performance, by Heart, try “The Road Home”, which I have not seen yet but has to better than this. Please girls, do better next time.

  5. I am a Heart fan from way back in the early 70’s, albums, cd’s, concert’s, etc . Out of my entire collection I think this DVD has the lowest quality audio of Anne that I have ever heard. All you hear is a lot of echo. I can live with 5.0 surround but the echo is so bad that I just previewed the DVD and could not play it completely. Who ever mixed this soundtrack has no idea what he is doing. Anne’s voice is Heart. I recommend you do not buy this DVD until it is re-mixed. What a shame that such a great group’s first DVD has such poor sound quality.
