    Coming to Josh's Defense

    I've read the reviews posted here, and just have to come to Josh's defense. Yes, this DVD is nothing like his first one, but don't most artists' second work seem not as exciting as the first? As far as Josh's "disappointing voice", one must remember that this was the last stop on his tour. His voice and body, I'm sure, had undergone a lot of stress keeping up such a touring schedule. I saw this concert in August 2004 when he performed in Las Vegas. I can attest that his voice in Las Vegas was perfect; just like listening to his CDs. But the DVD still captures the essence and relaxed atmosphere that watching the concert live gives off. Yes, he does sound nasal and congested in this recording. Maybe he was battling a cold. But give the guy a break! He is still a great performer, and is still extremely talented. Oh, and his sense of humor comes out in this DVD, too. He's a lot more relaxed in this DVD. If you love Josh Groban, you'll still like this recording. As far as the criticism given off in the other reviews on this site, I don't think it's fair to allow the harshness of one's disappointment with expectation get in the way of one's talent.

    Remember - It's a live concert

    The CD/DVD combo of Josh Groban Live at The Greek is a great album, but there are a few things that you must remember when you are listening to the CD/DVD. From a stand point of a sound engineer, live sound reenforcement is totaly different from studio recording. Of course the studio recording is going to sound a lot better, but only because when the recording is taken place, you can refine the audio over and over until you like the sound and blend. For live sound reenforcement much of the sound is compressed to make sure that there are no feedback problems and the the show runs smoothly. Since the concert is outdoors, there is the factor of getting rid of the natural wind, but when you remove the wind or the audience noise that is extra you lose audio quality slightly. I deffiently think this is a great recording of Josh Groban at a "LIVE" concert and the engineers who refined the sound did a great job at it. Sure at times it did sound a little bad, but Josh has been on tour all summer long before recording this for PBS. This DVD sounds great on my BOSE 321GS II system, with many new songs that you have not herd on his Closer CD. There could be some room for improvements

    Josh Groban - Greek Theatre concert

    Let me tell you, had you been at the Greek Theatre and saw this concert you folks wouldn't be so down on this. I have seen Josh in concert twice and the Greek was absolutely awesome. You are right, he is changing -- he is getting better at relating to the audience and stage presense. I think he sounds great and just keeps getting better

    What are they complaining about?

    What in the world? I LOVE the new cd/dvd from Josh Groban. He doesn't sound as good as he does on his Closer cd- I'll give you that, but who ever sounds as good performing live? I'm there for ya Josh!
