I think it's a shame that they didn't include The Sydney show from earlier this year. The boxed set would have been priced a bit heavier, but it would have been worth it. 40th anniversary of The Cure and 30th anniversary of Disintegration.
If they really want to make us all happy ... The next video release should be finally releasing the Sydney "Reflections" show and tack on the Sydney Disintegration anniversary show... That would be the Jewel In The Crown.
I will never understand why they didn't release "Reflections" ages ago as announced. "Maybe Someday" Those shows were BRILLIANT. I wish I was their manager
I finally watched this and I don’t know why they have to use those stupid effects.
I know right? I was already upset that UPS horsed up the delivery & couldn't even call to verify the address so I got it a week later. Then I honestly thought the disc was faulty when the first track played like a 3rd gen VHS video. I was on the verge of returning it until I found out that's what it was supposed to be like. Nick Wickham did a fine job with the Sydney Disintegration stream, but the Meltdown direction & effects are just way too much. It sort of spoils the visual experience for me. I understand the reasoning, but it could have been done better. I thought we'd moved on from the horror that was Festival 2005
I DO LIKE THE EFFECTS... MAYBE I HAVE CHEESY TASTE!!!
To each their own Ed. Personally I didn't like the effects & found them distracting to the point I wanted to return the discs. It wasn't until I asked you & Nat that I realised my discs weren't actually defective. If you liked them, then good for you
