Adele - Live at the Royal Albert Hall

Believe it or not, I don't always immediately watch the DVD's I've purchased.

Finally I got to sit down and watch the Adele - Live at the Royal Albert Hall.

Simply phenomenal. Reminded me of many other artists like Sting, Elton John, Chris Botti, Michael Buble and others where the voice is in the spotlight. Adele does nothing better. She just stands there, but in this case, that's OK with me. The band is phenomenal as well. The mix on the DVD is perfect. From the intricate details of the guitar or banjo to the full swelling sound of an orchestra.

Adele talks between each song. A rare time where that does not bother me. She was smiling and laughing and telling stories about herself and the song. Not overly long. Just enough for a setup. Loved the intimate relationship she was embracing with the viewer.

I do have on con... surprisingly, on one to many occasions, the editing is the dreaded MTV quick cut to the pace of the music. Adele never really chugs along, but the song structure is being reproduced by quick cuts and it just bugs the crap outta me.

I do have the regular DVD version and it shows the pixelation I despise. I'm on the fence about upgrading to Blu-ray. If I can find it for a very decent price, I'll probably swap out.

Highly recommend this evening with Adele.

Note: About the 28 mark, she covers some other group and it's different... but very good.
