Low Low in Europe

Unfortunately, this documentary has right off the bat two things against it: most of the songs here come from one of Low's weaker albums and that, personally, Low at the time of the documentary were not really that compelling. But, luckily, the music is where the release is strongest, with great live performances giving the Low fan what they've been somewhat lacking, which is a quality documentation of their live show. Interestingly, if this documentary were done now — with their current stronger album and lead man Alan Sparhawk's mysterious mental condition — this actually might have been a more compelling film.
