CD Reviews

Was expecting less - and got much more

"First off, I'm NOT a huge Destiny's Child fan and I didn't rush right out and buy this dvd. But over the past few years I've enjoyed more than a few DC songs and when I had the chance to borrow this film I thought it might be interesting to see what the group does live.

It turned out to be a very entertaining evening. I was prepared to skip through large segments of the show, but I found myself captivated through most of the 2hour+ performance. Sure, there were spots that were totally over the top (Beyonce's extended entrance with Egyptian cortege, a scene that seemed to have absolutely nothing to do with the music), spots that made you scramble for the remote (Beyonce's extended "I love you" warbling to every section of the arena, three or four times over), and parts that seemed to repeat themselves without end ("Hey, Atlanta, how ya doin?"). But there were many more moments of surprise and delight, such as the girls being sprung up from below onto stage, Michelle's very powerful solo performance, a troupe of remarkable dancers, the Cater 2 U sequence (in which the girls sing and dance to three men pulled from the audience), and the Flamenco style version of Survivor.

Your world won't be changed by Destiny's Child or this concert film. But sometimes a light diversion is just the thing you need to make life right."
Beyonce emerges as the clear superstar of this DVD, and genr

"After watching it 5 times now in 4 days, I can honestly say that Beyonce has emerged not on ly as a star of her time, but as a star of all times. I would put her right up there with Aretha, Patty, and Tina Marie. Her contemporaries, Badu, Ciera, Keys, I am afraid, become Pippen-to-Jordan like in their shortcomings. The girl -- correct that -- fully grown and fine woman is a Diva. This DVD confirms it.

I know, I know, everyone wants to reserve judgement, and judge a body of work before proclaiming a neophyte a Diva. Tune into Dangerously in love on this DVD, and then tell me she is not ready for the baton. Tina, and Aretha in their prime could have matched the rendition, maybe, and Patty may be able to pull it off today. But, they never could have pulled it off looking as good as Beyonce. And don't tell me looks don't matter...this is entertainment, and her looks are supremely entertaining.

Oh yeah, the other two. Kelly, and Michelle were good. Singing gospel, Michelle, was clearly in her element. She will not make a dime as a table dancer though, poor guy, gets pulled up on stage to sit next to the guy getting "catered" by Beyonce...so close, but yet so far. If Kelly asks the audience to help her one more time during her solo, I am going to peremenently edit her out of my DVD. Michelle should get more mic time, but since Kelly is an original DC I guess loyalty wins out...not on my remote though...can we say fast forward.

As far as singers/entertainers, unless Stevie reterns to form some time soon, or the spirit of Hathaway, Gaye, Ripperton, Redding, or Lady Day enhabits another human in the near future, Beyonce is it. High praise I know, but who else is dancing through an entire show, and singing (on key)? I submit her performance in Bootylicious to cap off my thesis.

I welcome solid debate, but come correct. I will."
Awesome Show!!

"This show is great but the only thing I FROWN at is the fact that the show hasn't changed from their first tour. Other than that, the show was FANTASTIC!! There was so much creativity put into this show. You can certainly tell the girls put alot into this show. Kudos."
