An Extraordinary DVD of music videos

"I'll start off by saying that I'm a big fan of music video DVDs in general. Chemical Brothers videos are larger than life. Several of these videos zip you away into a sense of peace and tranquility, leaving you amazed. The two stand-out videos have got to be "Star Guitar" and "The Test". I've watched both of these videos several times, and am still astonished every time I watch them.
For the video "Star Guitar", they just shot footage from the side of a train. Everything they pass, whether it be: trees, buildings, bridges, poles, walls... is cut perfectly to the beat, rhythm and melody. That video must have taken forever to make. "The Test" is very simular; with a lot of on-beat video making.
Not only are the videos awesome, but the live concert footage is sweet too; maybe even better than the videos. The light show they put on is just sick. This DVD is must see for... anyone."
The Private Psychedelic Masterpiece 93-03

"The main thing I appreciated about this DVD were the promos. Each promo makes you respect that song more in so many different ways. Unlike Moby's PLAY DVD, The Chem. Bros. give each video a kind of adventure or purpose while keeping you motivated through every beat. My personal favorites were 'Block Rockin' Beats' with these two people on the run from the police apparently, getting caught in the end, while on their journey, run into Tom and Ed in a sort of club. 'Star Guitar' was absolutely impressive with a view from outside the window of a train as everything that passed you (bridge, pole, etc...) represented each beat and rythem...you must look carefully, otherwise you might not understand the video in general. My other favorites include Out Of Control, The Test, and Setting Sun promos ('Life Is Sweet' creeps me out even to this day). The LIVE cuts are another KEY part of this DVD collection. Even when you sit at home on your couch or in your room doddling on your computer, the LIVE cuts can still make you feel like you are very much there with the strobing lights and scratched/mixed up beats through Hey Boy Hey Girl, Hoops/Setting Sun, and the other cuts. It was interesting to watch The Private Reels on the DVD as Tom and Ed go around the world and ask random people if they've ever heard of The Chemical Brothers. Some of these people had no clue what they were talking about which was humorous. Most of them on there (teens) knew their older works when they were known as The Dust Brothers, which I can't say too much about because I've never heard any of their older works of music. The interviews are worth a listen as well as they go through all, if not all, the guests that appeared in the songs. You have Tim Burgess (Life Is Sweet), Noel Gallagher (Setting Sun), and I believe Beth Orton (Alive Alone, Where Do I Begin, The State We're In) was in there as well, I'll have to double-check that one. This DVD is one of a kind and will serve all the Chem. fans out there well."
LONG TIME COMING

"Chemical Brothers fans have long awaited a video/live dvd from the masters and I would say it's been worth the wait. What an awesomely put together dvd. Even the menus are class. Having been at the red rocks show, I admired how its footage perfectly captures the mayhem that ensued after the blistering opener hey boy, hey girl. And as for the other live bits, they're worth the price of admission alone, especially the Japan footage, simply jaw-dropping. But you also get the promos and interviews which only add to the future classic status of this dvd. Some of the best videos of the last ten years of course line up to show the Chem's might. 'The Test' is an instant classic with amazing visuals, and 'The Golden Path' is a very positive and uplifting piece of genius as a video and track. Excellent DVD."
