Falco - Everything (2000) Retail DVD
Having bought this for a Falco fan and watched it with him for the first time this compilation was a wild trip back into the 80's, in some cases to fashions and camera angles some of us might like to forget! Falco's career spanned 2 decades, although clearly his heyday was the mid 80s, with a few flashes of similar brilliance in 1998 material such as the very retro sounding "Push Push". Unfortunately this career resurgence was cut abruptly by his untimely fatal road-accident, so we will never know what he had to offer as a real come-back.
This DVD compilation also features his arguably ill-advisedmore… ventures into 130+ bpm Euro Techno, where he looks too mature and rather out of place amongst the 'raving' babes and dudes in all their technicolour attire. The complete disregard for any chronological order, and hence musical consistency, is one minor gripe with this compilation.
The Club 69 1998 remix of "Der Kommisar" is ok and keeps the guitar riffs that make this track, but why not edit the video to the original?
As I'm not a die-hard fan I found these excursions rather difficult to take in, and the 'not suitable for mainstream telly' video to the rather crass "Naked" shows an artist possibly on the brink of creative collapse. Thankfully he turns things around for "Out of The Dark" a year or two later. I guess "Naked" may be a vague attempt to refer to viewing humanity and all it's excesses as much as the overt sexual theme punctuated by numerous female topless dancers, but his leering and the rather high nipple-count makes you wonder! And then we come onto the extras....
"Rock Me Amadeus" includes extra 'millenium' cut-ins of an adult nature (although still humorously portrayed), and the uncensored version of "Titanic" is a sort of take-it-much-further version (think of the uncensored FGTH Relax and you're barely half-way there), so no real surprises there. The 'hardcore' version of "Naked" takes the original count higher, as you'd generally expect, but some additional posed shots (including children in particular) are wholly unwelcome in the general context of this song. Obviously the record label accepted this in 1996, but we felt it pushed the boundaries too far when we watched in August 2008. Please be aware before watching, and then make make up your own minds!
The closing trbute is not quite the grand gesture it's producers hoped I suspect (Bolland Project, who had major involvement in his early career, based on song credits). They pull in a female singer/rapper to pout and pose over some appalling lyrics like "We miss you, Yes we all do". I'm sure the sentiment was there, but......
So, for the earlier videos and the best of his 1998/1999 material (a lot of which are montages of earlier videos), this DVD is a must have for any Falco fan who hasn't got the 2000 VHS edition. The extra short interview and documentary may also be of interest. But the 6 bonus unreleased videos are a very mixed bag indeed. Hence 4 out of 5.
