  1. Drowned World Tour appreciation thread!

    What a magnificent tour, I love it so much. Visually and sonically stunning. Btw I actually like her hair on the DVD. It looks weird at first, but once it gets messed up a few songs in, it looks cool. I think it fits the Cowgirl section really well, even better than the straight hair on a lot of pictures in this thread.
  2. Like A Virgin from the tours ranked

    RHT wins for me. The whole performance is so awesome and I love the remix. It's sad that the audio is messed up on the official release. Love the arrangement of the CT version and the performance, too. In terms of re-inventions, there really isn't a bad one. They're all great.
  3. I think that "live feeling" is audible because it's a vocal take from a rehearsal where she did the actual performance.
  4. Vogue from the tours ranked

    Now that's interesting, it's my favourite version. I think it's a perfect updated version true to the original. Love the arrangement very much, it sounds timeless.
  5. Have you guys heard Nelly's new album? If yes, what's your opinion? It's called "The Ride" and I have to say I really enjoy it. Such an improvement over "The Spirit Indestructible", which I thought was uninspired and even annoying in terms of production and vocal delivery. This one is pretty diverse and interesting Btw, her husband didn't master it which means it doesn't sound crappy.
  6. Amazing thread! Someone talked about Vogue during RHT being a new prerecorded vocal. I think it's just the original vocal pitched down which makes it sound like it's not even her singing it. It's especially noticeable on the final release.
  7. Rebel Heart ♥ Tour DVD / Blu-ray

    They should've included the backstage pass footage on the release
  8. The RHT version of Burning Up is what the RIT version tried to be. I love this version, especially the guitar solo.
  9. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    Btw do you think Trolldonna let them print background visuals for Nicki and Kiley on the first page of the booklet on purpose? I mean...when you think about it...you really can't hear them.
  10. I love the beginning of Body Shop when she messes up her cue because she can't stop chatting.
  11. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    It's grainy on my Bluray, too. Thank god it's not the case for the main show.
  12. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    I know It's misspelled though, that's what I meant.
  13. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    What is an "accordian"? Kiley and Nicki on background visuals...
  14. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    I need the full Take A Bow performance! The footage in the small clips looks gorgeous! Her smile!!!
  15. I love this song and the performance is awesome. I don't know if I'm late to notice this or if my ears play tricks on me today, but just as I listened to the performance a few minutes ago, I understood "ham" instead of "him" every single time she sings it: She's meant for ham, dreamt for ham, danced for ham, even cried for ham. She has also prayed for ham and finally, she's made for ham. Seems M really deserves her ham!
  16. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    Unfortunately she had a cold when she performed in Japan.
  17. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    Deeper And Deeper sounds better than I expected. I can hear her live vocal a bit better than I remember from the broadcast.
  18. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    Sorry was always lip-synched though, except the last few lines.
  19. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    It's not my intention at all to complain about those vocal (mixing) issues all the time, but I think it's so sad. She had really good shows on this tour vocally and they should've used these takes. Maybe she's getting more insecure about this or she just doesn't care about what's audible on the final product, but even if she doesn't, there should be people in her team who DO care about essential things like this. She's the biggest star in the world and the Rebel Heart Tour was such a wonderful experience and journey. She and her team should handle these kind of releases more carefully. She's my favourite singer in the world and when I revisit her live recordings, I want to HEAR her. She can even lipsynch some tracks, that's ok, but her voice doesn't need to hide behind all these backing tracks. Please forgive me my (repeated) moaning about this issue, but she deserves better.
  20. Off Topic: Remember when M was interviewed on the red carpet of the Golden Globes and the interviewer told M that Elton had been there before, to which she replied: Was he wearing a nice dress??? Then the interviewer mentioned that Elton said "she doesn't have a fucking chance to win" and M replied: May the best man win! Sorry, I just remembered this. It also shows that all this whining by Gaga is so annoying and dumb. She could NEVER react with witty humor like Madonna.
  21. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    If it's exactly like the showtime version, then yes, it's one of the worst tracks in terms of vocals. Sometimes it sounds like there is no lead vocal at all.
  22. Get Together

    One of my favourite songs and tour performances. The additional repeated "Get together, get together....get togetheeeer..." part is awesome and I love the drums on the live version.
  23. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    True Blue and La Vie En Rose should be on that 1-Disc.
  24. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    Haha imo LIB is the best so far in terms of vocals, but it's still bad. Love the sound apart from that!
