Movie Reviews

Buy it
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A vastly underated band. Buy it, watch it. Gives you a taste of what might have been if Shannon was still here. If you were unfortunate enough in not being able to see Blind Melon live this video gives you a last chance to see the energy and passion they put into their live performances."
Reality of Blind Melon

"BM has never been well known or fully appreciated. After seeing this video for the first time I was never the same again. An incredible look into the heart of an amazing band and the person of Shannon Hoon. Also a rare look at Jena Kraus whose voice is absolutely enchanting. Overall a great collection and something I watch all the time and give to friends frequently."
Get your Melon (head) straight finally

"Remember how sick of the bee girl you were and "No Rain" just playing and playing and playing over again on the radio? I remember... I also remember when I got over that and really gave Blind Melon a chance. They are by far one of the most underrated bands to ever have a hit song. Behind the Music, along with the rest of the world, only remembers and depicts Shannon Hoon's tragic flaws and images of that darned bee girl. This DVD (or the video version even) will give you a perspective of what the whole band was about, and not strictly with respect to "No Rain". Buy this and get an understanding that may change your musical perspective forever..."
Blind Melon is the best band ever and most under appreciated

"This video is amazing. But this is not just for die hard fans of Blind Melon. It is or fans of good rock music. This video beutifuly ecapsulates the entire music carear of Blind Melon. It contains videos and great dialogs and interview clips. Tons of In Concert stuff too. Bottom line: Amazing, Blind Melon is one of the best."
