The Central Park Concert

Dave Matthews Band is known for his large collection of live recordings. All of these releases are really good and very professional. I have seen all of their live DVD and this one is the best. Itís probably one of the best live DVD Iíve ever seen. Dave Matthews Band is an awesome live band and this DVD is the proof.

The Sound

The sound of this DVD is probably the best Iíve ever heard. The only word that came to your head is : WOW!. Itís a crystal clear production and you catch every moment like you were there. All the instrument are clearly audible in opposition of the Live at Folsom Field DVD. You can hear the crowd easily but it doesnít kill the band performance. You can choose between two audio features: Classic 2.0 PCM stereo or 5.1 Surround.

The Visual

Like the sound, the visual quality is one of the best Iíve ever seen. The Stage is well Lightened, and looks great. You can see the crowd really well and it gets you like you were there. The Night add a nice effect to the concert visual.

The Performance

These guys are incredible. I mean, thereís no mistake and theyíre not boring on the stage. Dave Matthews madnesses are fun to watch. Carter Beaufort seems in good shape and happy to be there. Every other member are good too. Itís nice to see Warren Hayne, a great guitar player, perform during Cortez, The Killer and Jimi Thing. The only weak point is that Crash Into me, a classic DMB song is not played.


This DVD feature a live concert of more than two hours. Itís long! Some bonus are there but nothing special. It doesnít seems to be DMB priority. But it would have been cool to see more footage or videos. It think itís sad that the DVD is on two seperate Disc. It breaks the atmosphere that you get on the first disc.


This is an amazing show. A must for a DMB fan and the ones that wanna discover this band. The quality is amazing. Every live DVD should be like that. If it had more bonus it would be a killer DVD. You wonít be dissapointed cause itís worth the price.

Ok review. The highlights of this are definately Dancing Nancies, Two Step, and What you are. Really good DVD...only...Listener Supported is a tad better.

Haha I liked this a lot when I first heard it. When I heard the vocal solo type thing Dave does on Ants Marching I think (it's been more than a year, and i just rented it) I went into one of those music ecstacy moods.

Cortez, the Killer and Jimi Thing with Warren Haynes are both amazing, as is All Along the Watchtower, ecstacy.
