Kylie Fever 2002 is a concert film of this babe recorded in Manchester England which follows up last year's, Live in Sidney, with a bigger budget, more energy, and an even more outrageously fun series of programs/chapters. In each segment, there is a theme that ranged from futuristic techno_robot, to sexy love_kitten and a lot more in between. The titles of each segment give you a good idea of what to expect and here's a list of songs for each act:
The songs themselves were:
Okay, there was a great selection of tunes and what amounts to a great series of floor shows with some of the most technically advanced effects and choreography. The show itself was about 108 minutes long. There was a fair amount of adult oriented content in the show although nothing too outlandish. The concert was exceptionally fun to watch and even though I've seen it several times, it remains very fresh to me. With the light show and animated screens, I bet this will be a big hit with ecstasy users too.
Video: I've seen dozens of concert tapes, laserdiscs and dvd's with few coming even close to this one in terms of clarity. The widescreen format chosen for the concert was very good in that it allowed me to see how much was going on across what looked to be a very large stage. Concerts are notorious for looking lousy on the small screen but this one proved that belief wrong.
Audio: The sound was great! The dvd gives you the choice between Surround and Stereo with the former having an edge if you have the right system. The actual sound being so good, I'm sure some of the hacks out there will be suggesting the entire concert was lip-synched but it was obvious that she was singing the material at the time. She added something to each track beyond what her studio albums had which added enjoyment to the show as well.
Extra's: The dvd had some very well done extra's. It included a 34 minute documentary which helped show some of the attention to detail directors Alan MacDonald and Will Baker took to make Kylie look so good. You get to see her in various stages of undress too which was fun to watch-especially the wet T-shirt sequence of a photoshoot.
Final Thoughts: I really liked this one. I thought the sound and picture were first rate, the content a blast to watch, and I can't say that there were any noticeable problems. Fans of Kylie should buy a copy and anyone that likes dance/pop music should at least rent it. I know that music tastes are very subjective in regards to reviews but this one really did a great job on all levels.
