This Blu-ray music spectacular filmed at
London's O2 Arena over two nights features one of the worlds most
amazing pop stars... Kylie Minogue. However after watching this amazing
concert, especially in 3D, Kylie will be elevated from pop princess to pop
goddess as she is transformed into Aphrodite herself.
Even the beginning of the concert is based
on Botticelli's Birth of Venus as Kylie emerges from a golden seashell
with some amazing visuals of swimmers underwater to complete her
This two hour concert (excuse the pun)
almost makes you feel like you are part of the crowd and next to the
goddess herself as it brings together tacks from her latest platinum
selling album APHRODITE, including some of her other hits that include
Can't Get You Out of My Head and Spinning Around.
This Blu-ray collection comes on two discs
which includes the 3D version on one disc and the 2D version of the
other with a very cool documentary entitled Just Add Water.
The 3D looks amazing on Blu-ray and the filmmakers have captured some
truly standout moments which really jump out at you. Considering that
they collected around 40 hours of footage, it's easy to see why this is
such a slick presentation.
Before I get to the extravagant visuals of
the concert, there are a total of 26 tracks included in the presentation
which sound phenomenal through a surround sound system. Once again the
cliché of feeling like you are at the concert comes into play when these
songs are booming out of your home theatre speakers.
In relation to audio quality, this release
comes in PCM Stereo, Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 that
bring out the clarity of Kylie's amazing voice and needless to say, you
won't experience anything like it, unless your fortunate to have a
one-on-one with Kylie Minogue unplugged. A special mention should also
be made to Roxy and Lucy, Kylie's backing singers who perfectly
complement her vocals and it's great to see them part of the
performances as well.
The performances... wow, I don't think I
have seen a concert that has been so well choreographed. Firstly, the
set is quite amazing and looks like it has been taken directly from the
Ten you have the colourful costumes with
more glitter and glam then the Sydney Mardi Gras combined. Interestingly
enough, some of the costumes were actually created by Dolce & Gabbana
which is why they jump out at you.
Complementing the costumes is the
choreography with the perfect physique of the dancers as they play
powerful ancient Greek Soldiers (ala 300) and beautiful scantily clad
nymph-like goddesses with some acrobatics and ballet routines thrown in
for good measures.
When combined with the concerts special
effects and the music, it's a truly surreal and memorable experience.
From a golden winged Pegasus to the spectacular water-feature finale,
you'll enjoy every minute of Kylie's
