'Everybody's Talking About... Pop Music!'
"Perspective-scrambling orgy of smoke, mirrors, silly costumes and very bright lights...' What else but 'PopMart Live', arriving on DVD on Monday. First reviews here.
'This exemplary concert video captures both the gaudy splendour of the spectacle and an impassioned performance by the band providing the soundtrack.' That's the word from the October edition of Uncut which adds that 'for all its scale and dazzle, the impression left by PopMart, revisted a decade on, is the manner in which it amplified U2's capacity for intimacy.'
'A great concert,' chimes DVD Monthly, while it's the new issue of Q which plumps for the 'perspective-scrambling orgy of smoke, mirrors, silly costumes and very bright lights'. It also notes Adam's mischievous sales advice in 'Lemon for Sale', one of the bonus documentaries on Disc 2. 'It takes three adults and a child!'
