Well ... my first breach in the rock spirit mood of this blog. Also my first dabbling in dvd authoring. But I would say the guy deserves it. I didn't know Chris Corner in his Sneaker Pimps era but I do remember my ear-pricking up sensation, scanning his first album at a free listening kiosk in a record shop, back in 2004. For sure, the man has a tormented soul and it often runs through his songs but his voice, writing and melodies are always made up of a great mixture of sensitivity, beauty and power. IAMX's shows used to be often blamed for their too dim lit stage.If darkness does contribute to their own atmosphere and dark electro, it shouldn't prevent people from seeing them play. This is why I chose an open air festival where they played in the late afternoon. This is an audience recording (thanx again to "as1mar's" for having so a resilient arm !), so, it can be shaky at times and you can have some hands and heads in the way here and there. But this is HD and can be comfortably watched as if you were part of the audience.
Browsing the chapters and menus may sometimes look confusing (especially on TV with a dvd player) but the "Back", "Main" & "Next" tabs are actually "hidden" on the TV set buttons, on the right.
My apologies for "The Alternative" and "Skin Vision". I noticed they were not full length too late but I spent too much time on the project to start it all over. I didn't have much room left anyway. The dvd is packed (99,2 % !), you have some bonuses but, sorry, I had to reduce the quality of the last two videos to cram everything in.
Anyway, while waiting for IAMX's new 2013 album & dvd, I hope you'll enjoy this one.
