This customer review refers to WILD LIFE (Taiwan Version)
First, my two cents worth about the music itself. The song that caught my attention the most was “Blue.” It’s one of my favorite tunes and I was a little disappointed that Hikki did not include it in her 2006 Utada United concert tour. Although I felt that the studio version of this song is among the best of her electronic/synth work, it was a pleasant surprise that she chose to have it played with an acoustic drum kit in concert. It sounded much better than I could have imagined. Of course, the drummer himself deserves due credit; however, it also shows one aspect of Hikki’s talents not only as a singer and composer, but also as a producer and arranger.
Second, the videography. Compared to her previous concert DVDs, I appreciated the increased attention given to her musicians throughout the video. Being a hobbyist musician myself (and currently trying my hand at drum machine programming and VST synths), I just about drooled over seeing close-ups of the Yamaha Motif and Arturia synths used on stage—and these synths aren’t cheap, at several thousand dollars (USD) each. It was great to see keyboardist Matt Rohde working with Hikki again, as well as seeing the Pro Tools software platform receiving some exposure. (And I have to admit that the Pro Tools operator looked so cool up on stage with headphones on working with his setup instead of toiling in the shadows.)
Third, a word about the musicians. Did you notice that the string section consisted of plain, regular-looking people like you and me? If Hikki acted like a diva (or belonged to the Avex record label), she would have been more concerned with image than ability, and perhaps used only people who looked like models. I have a lot of respect for Hikki because of that.
Combined with the bonus “Behind the Scenes” DVD, Wild Life makes for great watching if you’re a gearhead and/or you want an introduction to the technical side of concert production. Also, maybe there is a lesson to be learned from all of this. If you’re still young and absolutely hating your piano/violin/cello lessons, stick with it. You may not get into a symphony orchestra, but you’ll never know where your path will take you—perhaps some day in the future you’ll find yourself playing with Hikki in a recording studio or on a stage.

Just received this in the mail today, and actually ordered a blu-ray player for my computer last week just so I could watch this when it arrived. I had already seen the concert when it was broadcasted live, and so I was very excited when I found out it was coming to blu-ray (as well as DVD, of course, though I have not seen the DVD version and only bought the blu-ray one).
I don't know how the quality compares between the blu-ray and DVD versions, but the blu-ray is, as the title says, absolutely gorgeous. It's amazingly clear and detailed, and I'm extremely happy!
Obviously there's only one language track, and unfortunately no English subtitles at all, so with my limited knowledge of Japanese I will sadly never fully understand the MC sessions when she talks to the audience. But everyone looks like they're having a good time, so I can't complain.
The concert itself is wonderful, and has many of my favorite songs. I hadn't really given the opening song a real listen before, but it's now one of my new favorites. I'm guessing anyone who looks at this is already an Utada fan, so I'll refrain from mentioning the set list if you haven't seen it already and want to surprise yourself - but just know that Utada and the concert itself are awesome.
One thing to note is that if you've seen the broadcasted version, the camera angles in the blu-ray are different. If you remember that version and then check out her video on her YT channel where she shows the Goodbye Happiness live version, you'll see a lot of changes (the camera pans out and covers the audience more in many parts, for example). This does not take away from the enjoyment of the show, and actually you get to re-live the excitement in a different way (which again is not a bad thing at all).
It's already mentioned below in the editorial, but the bonus features include a 'Behind the Scenes' video that is 40 minutes long, a slideshow video photo gallery, and the extra MC sessions from the second day of the concert.
I can't really compare Wild Life to Budokan or Utada United since they're all good in their own ways with the set lists and the way certain songs are delivered, but I have to say that I loved the stage and the lighting she used in this one the most. In the end, I strongly recommend buying this concert, whether it's on blu-ray or DVD - it's definitely worth it!
