3 stars Hello Montreal, long time no see...do you wanna get crazy?

With an over 18,000 people in the audience expecting for a great night, who doesnt wanna get crazy with Queen? Queen is a band that i really like i have listened to them since i was a kid, and i still enjoy their music, maybe what i like the most is to sing their songs and have a nice time while listening to them, or watching their videos like this case, this time i dont care if the band is progressive or not, i just love them and i will write a short review for this DVD.

Rock Montreal was recently released in the last days of October, besides this DVD, there is another one which also features a Live Aid performance, and also there is a CD/DVD version of Rock Montreal, last week i got this single DVD and believe me that is a worth watching (if you like the band), if not, then dont waste your time reading this review.

If im not wrong, the CD version contains some extra songs, this video features over 20 including Taylor and Mays drums and guitar solos respectively, an intro and the final God Save the Queen as usual, the band makes the stage theirs, its their night and their concert, they are eating the stage and its transmitted to the fans, who of course show themselves very excited with a night that im sure they will remember forever, i really wish i was there, few people could appreciate and enjoy Mercurys voice and personal show, its noticeable how he enjoy what hes doing, and also enjoys seeing people enjoying them, a perfect conection between band and audience.

As usual, we cannot have everything and there are some tracks that i love missing in this concert, but anyway if you like them you will enjoy this show, their most succesful pices were performed here, their better known tracks are sung by a crazy audience and will make you sing as well, here we can appreciate their heavy side with songs like Get Down Make Love or Tie Your Mother Down, their rockish side with Crazy Little Thing Called Love and even Jailhouse Rock, and also their soft and poppish side with Love of My Life or Somebody to Love. This show contains another highlights such as Killer Queen, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody of course, and We are the Champions, songs that everyone can identify since the first note.

So Rock Montreal is a very nice DVD which you may enjoy, of course this is not a progressive rock video, but anyway i find it recommendable to anyone, though it is non-essential, 3 stars.

Enjoy it!

3 stars With a mixture of the band's Herculean hits and Freddie Mercury's irresistable stage presence, "Rock Montreal" is a fun and energetic excuse to listen to some of the most classic of classic rock songs one more time.

The group itself plays very on stage, and we get to hear everything quite well thanks to a fine production. Their impressive dynamics though can only barely contend with Mercury, who dominates the stage. In a way, this DVD is almost a documentary of his professional legacy-- and I don't think anyone will deny after watching this concert that he deserves his place as one of the all time great band leaders. His amazing vocals go without saying, but perhaps just as entertaining is observing his cavorting retrospectively. He gets progressively nuder throughout the show, starting in his tight white pants and tanktop but eventually stripping down to his barefeet, hairy chest (sweaty), tiny hot pants, and kicky neckerchef.

What a way to get rocked.
