I have to chime in. I got the 'Rising In The East' DVD through Amazon on it's scheduled North American release date back in November. I'm a major Priest fan, but I have to be honest. Visually, it's very good. There are a lot of camera angles that do justice to the stage and band members. The Japanese crowd is very much a part of this performance. As usual, this performance was filmed, not taped. However, I will say that the sound is very suspect and annoying in some places. As well.....the picture does seize up and freeze in others. I have read these same concerns on other forums and websites (Judas Priest.com.....Halford's Q.....Blabbermouth, etc. The one thing I realized a long time ago is that no recorded DVD or CD will ever do this band justice. They are like no other in their live element. They are the cream of the crop without question. And Rob's vocals cannot be duplicated in this setting.....he is a live performer first and foremost. Judas Priest is a live band.....that is what endured them to us. That will not change. So, with that said, I just don't want anyone to get their hopes up too high and have unrealistic expectations. Yes.....it is a good product. But certainly not perfect. However, I feel it would be worth adding to anyone's collection as it honestly captures the band's place in time circa 2005.
