(+) Depeche Mode: Live

Available on Amazon.fr for barely 23 Euro, I just had to jump on it.

The deluxe version offers a total immersion, all access experience for fans. This will include the Live in Berlin DVD, the Live in Berlin full show audio across two CDs, as well as a second DVD, Alive in Berlin. Also directed by Corbijn, Alive in Berlin includes the full live show, inter-spliced with behind-the-scenes footage, multiple interviews with the band and their fans, and a 2-song acoustic session, which was filmed at Salon Bel Ami, the oldest existing brothel in Berlin. The package also includes the band’s 2013 album Delta Machine 5.1 mix on Blu-Ray CD. All this comes specially packaged in a beautiful lift off box that includes 5 CD mini-jackets housing the aforementioned discs and a 16 page booklet“. [depechemode.com]

Volkher Hofmann (deus62) has been blogging on and off since the 1990s and deus62.com is all that is left. He loves music, literature, drumming and, most of all, real life. He thinks the open web is much more important than social networks, closed-in ecosystems and other severely commercialized online endeavors.

  1. Update: The special edition is, to put it bluntly, an absolute catastrophe. The video (NTSC,”Never The Same Color”, low-res soup) doesn’t play properly, Corbijn’s camera work sucks, the CDs are victims of the loudness wars and the packaging is cheap-shit crap. A cash grab project (no surprise there … it’s a Sony product). Avoid like the plague. Mine is going back, if anyone wants it back that is.
