Reviews - What do customers think about Live From Another Level w/Israel & New Breed?
DVD doesn't do justice to Israel and the New Breed's incredible talent Aug 7, 2005
Let me start by saying that I'm a huge, HUGE fan of Israel Houghton and the New Breed. First of all their music is biblical and God honoring and secondly, they bring something to the worship music table that is sorely lacking these days, real musical talent. Having said that, I was pretty happy with this DVD (only because I'm such a big fan) but it left me wanting more. Previous reviewers have already covered the sub par production of the DVD so I won't go there but I will say that this DVD doesn't do a good job of showing the obvious musical talent of this group. There are a lot of crowd shots and entire band shots but it would have been nice to see more musician shots. As it is you don't really get to see how ridiculously talented this band is through this DVD. I'm a musician myself and a big reason why I buy music DVDs is to see how exactly the musicians make the music they do and therefore have my appreciation of the music and the musicians enhanced. This DVD didn't do such a good job of that.
Great worship if you're just listening May 4, 2005
The worship is definitely an experience that is one of a kind. If you have the CD, you know that the worship is just awesome. However, I was very disappointed at the way in which the DVD was done. I brought it for my sister as a Christmas gift, and I was a little embarrased. The editing was horrible. I felt like I was watching an old foreign movie that was being translated. There were times where I literally had to just close my eyes and listen, because it was so distracting to watch. I pray that then next DVD/VHS project he does is of much better quality. I don't really watch the DVD anymore, I just listen to the CD.
Excellent, Outstanding Praise and Worship, but.... Feb 4, 2005
The music presented on this DVD is similiar to their CDs. Its clear, concise, and inspiring. It seems that Israel Houghton is finally getting some overdue credit, he's brilliant in his music development and bringing you into presence of God.
Now the critique. The amount of money that was spent on this project must be have been extravagant. If that was case, a little more care should have been added to the video editing. At times, I felt like I was watching something akin to the "Blair Witch Project" with all that cutting, poor focusing, and imagery not in sync with the song. This may sound a little harsh, but luckily, having seen Israel and New Breed in concert recently...I know better.
Hopefully, his next venture in DVD land will equal his hard work and musical talent. This one fell short.
Bad editing the only letdown Dec 14, 2004
If you know Israel & his stellar band, New Breed, you'd know that anything these guys release is guaranteed to be of the highest quality, musically, creatively, an inspiration to the rest of us. Their efforts on this DVD release are no exception, however, the visual experience is let down (at times, very, very badly) by sloppy editing. The playing and singing you see is sometimes painfully out of sync with what you hear.
Having said that, however, the music is spectacular. If you've heard the CD, be prepared to hear even more over the top arrangements carried off in superb style. There is so much more on the DVD - instrumentals, solos, medleys that mix it up without being at all jarring in the transitions. Rather, these inspired changes do indeed take it to another level.
These guys, Israel particularly, are some of the most talented and soulful musicians you're ever likely to hear. Hopefully they release another DVD where the visual element comes up to par.
