Human emotions, passions, pains, love and humor coalesce through the exceptional music and lyrics of John Ondrasik in this remarkable DVD. The musical signature of "Five for Fighting" is reminiscent of the keyboarding of early Elton John, the drama of balladeer Harry Chapin, and the electric presence of Mark Knopfler's guitar. Ondrasik says it takes him two-years to compose the lyrics and music of his albums. It is time well spent. That's because Ondrasik fills his songs and this DVD with the stuff of life: "Two Lights" tells of a Vietnam vet waiting for the return of his soldier son from Iraq - "100 Years" chronicles stages of a life - "Freedom Never Cries" is about a young man trading a dead war hero's American burial flag for a used guitar - "65 Mustang" is Ondrasik's love song for his car and the memories he associates with it. The stage presence of the "Five for Fighting" band ignites a soft blaze of excitement that you can feel burn its way through the live Orlando, Florida audience. More importantly "for the purpose of this review" this DVD grants fans of "Five for Fighting" an intimate musical experience with a great band that can be enjoyed over and over again. Highly recommended. Buy this DVD, then get your favorite beverage, and find a close friend with whom you can share this DVD. You're gonna love it.
