Worth Every Penny
Posted June 24, 2008
Not surprisingly, this CD/DVD combo is quite remarkable. If you've ever had the priviledge of seeing tobyMac perform, you would know that he puts an incredibly exciting, energetic, and fun show. Some choegraphy, but not so much you get sick. He doesn't just sit there and sing a couple songs from his albums, but he mixes it up and will change a song so it can better fit a live show. He even throws in a few songs from his earlier dcTalk days. Considering all this, you just know this is something you must own.
The CD itself is quite a surprise. Usually a live recording will have sound errors and be hard to listen to, but not this one. It has a clean sound that is pleasant to listen to. Obviously, it's not studio quality, but it's not bad. It's very well made and is a fun listen. I'm not always a fan of live CDs, but this one is a must-have. I actually wasn't able to take it out of my stereo for a whole week after I ripped it out of the packaging the day it was released. The best part? If you watch the DVD first you can almost visualize the concert as you listen to the CD.
Oh, yeah, I should probably mention the DVD, considering it may very well be the better half. As I mentioned earlier, tobyMac's live shows are just amazing! Even if you don't like toby's music, you will probably enjoy his concert. The Diverse City Band just does a great job of making that happen. Now that we have the ability to watch them all perform whenever we so please, it's just great. I can't help but move around and sing along as I watch it. I'm sure that if you like to have fun at all, you would enjoy this DVD.
Besides the concert footage, the DVD contains some additional features. These clips just make it twice as good. Some introduce you to the different members of the band, while others are just fun to watch and laugh at. I would actually pay to buy this on a serperate DVD if necessary. The fact they give it to you one one disc is a fantastic deal.
Overall, it's just a great buy and I'd recommend it to anyone.
