Reviews - What do customers think about Petra Farewell?
to short Jan 17, 2007
Petra Farewell is a very good D V D the only thing that I can think to complain about is it isn't long enough to cover 33 years there is so many other great songs of there's that did not make it so here is to hoping they do a FAREWELL 2
Good Enough, wished for more...... Nov 12, 2006
Please take the comments from (Mr.) Todd A. Lively(?) with a grain of salt! His non-inclusive CULT doesn't allow but only the "Perfect" people in! (Whereas we know Jesus came to save ALL of us!) Petra was an awesome witnessing tool totally Blessed by God! This video was made at the end of a fantastic run for Petra at a time when they didn't have the money or the fancy production crews to work with. This DVD was made FOR THE TRUE FANS of Petra as a salute to their love for them! I thank Petra for making this last DVD. It was hard to say goodbye, but I still use a lot of Petra songs to witness, and they will surely be missed! This DVD is worth your money in EVERY way!
Beyond Belief alright! Oct 10, 2006
This dvd is indeed beyond belief. Beyond belief that a great outfit such as Petra was allowed and enabled to produce such a failure. 1) Petra owes its fans a dvd set that has at least two dvds inside. 2) Petra owes its fans a concert that produces sound and camera work that is a million miles above the filth within this dvd. This dvd is only one in a million representative examples of why "Christian music" is made fun of and even disliked by Christians. Petra is not a valid witnessing tool. Those fans who say they were "saved" at a Petra show were simply seduced by something called the power of suggestion. Petra is cool but not GOD. Please do not buy this dvd and feel free to check for it in a dumpster at a "Christian" bookstore near you.
Who hired that cameraman?? Oct 3, 2006
I agree with the former reviewer about the seasickness pills. The best cameramen are the ones you don't think about during a performance, but there so many extremely fast pans, fades, oddly focused closeups and NYPD Blueish jerky effects that you almost forget you are watching a concert. (Almost.. the music is good enough that you ALMOST forget how bad the camera work is). If they would have stuck with dolly shot smoothness, this would have been 5 stars. I would still recommend it, but I would recommend the CD more.
A must have for Petra fans, however... Jun 18, 2006
I have been a Petra fan from the beginning (yes I'm and old guy) and was elated when this DVD became available. Bottom line, buy it... you'll enjoy it a lot. The bonus material is nice as well. It does have a few weak spots hence the 4 star rating. Video: 1. Have some form of sea sickness medication on hand for the first half of the show. The producer suffered from the dreaded "hey, what does this button do?" condition. During sections of Dance, my wife and I both jolted back in unison in an attempt to re-focus out eyes. 2. If you are interested in seeing extended shots of Bob or the new drummer (it was sad not seeing Louie there) forget it. Quick peeks are all you get for the most part. 3. Music and mouths are off a little here and there. Not a big worry unless that sort of thing really bothers you. 4. You need to watch it in 4:3 format... Yuk. HD folks will have to dumb down the resolution. Unnecessary for a DVD with such a recent release date. Audio: (played through Def Tech Pro 80 sats, pro 100 center and 10" sub driven by a Dennon AVR-1906) 1. I'm not sure why the CD, played through the same system, sounds so much better than the DVD. Same concert, different results. I guess the DVD folks should have hired the CD production staff. 2. My only "real" complaint with the sound is the abundance of bass. Even after dialing the bass down all the way on the receiver, I had to actually physically dial it down some more on the sub. Not that that's a great burden, I'm not quite that lazy, but it's the only DVD I've had to do it with. Again, let me say this concert is a must have for Petra fans. It's this one or... well, this one. As one of the other reviewers mentioned, a re-release of Captured in Time and Space on DVD would be fantastic. Seeing Greg and John was a treat and brought warm feelings for us older fans. Thanks to Petra for 30 plus years of great music. I pray God continues to bless the members of the band an all of those who listen.
