"I picked up Chevelle's first DVD release, "Live From The Norva" about two weeks after seeing them perform live. Maybe it was the experience of seeing the band live (we don't get many good bands around here...), but to me, this is an excellent representation of the group and brings back the concert to my mind very vividly each time I watch it. Just like their music, Chevelle's live show is stripped down, yet very passionate, emotional and intense. All three brothers work together and compliment each other very nicely on each song. Pete's vocals are strong the whole way through, as he hardly ever misses a note or a lyric while trashing about on his guitar. Sam's drum-work provides a catchy back-ground for the music, while Joe's bass works almost like a second guitar, adding more dimension and crunch to the mere three-person band. The band blazes effortlessly and breezily through the short fourteen song set, pulling out all of their hits ("The Red," "Send The Pain Below"), some old stuff ("Mia," "Point #1" (my favorite Chevelle song)), some rarely heard songs ("Sma," "Don't Fake This") and even a b-side ("Until You're Reformed" from the 'Daredevil' soundtrack). I have watched this DVD many times in the near-year I have owned it and can tell you that if you love the band, it is worth the money. It is somewhat lacking in special features (how about some music videos?), but the concert is strong enough, it's forgiven (add to that a fair price).
01. Family System
03. Send The Pain Below
04. Until You're Reformed
07. Point #1
09. Grab Thy Hand
10. An Evening With El Diablo
11. Comfortable Liar
12. Don't Fake This
13. The Red
14. Wonder's What's Next
Also included is a pre-show interview with the band (pretty cool) called "Pay Your Dues" and some standard photo-gallery and discography features. Overall, an excellent little package, and goes well with the CD "Live From The Road," which, while not as extensive as this, is still worth checking out."

"to the guy below ripping them because they're not "tight" and the sound isn't good... give them a break. They're a trio and they're playing in a small venue. They're going to sound different than their studio albums because they can't over layer the guitar parts and such. Also, the small venue means they probably didn't bring in tons of gear, etc. Plus, its an entire concert... not just a collage of cut and paste of the best moments. Other concert videos that I've seen that have great sound, etc all have larger bands, more equipment, and cuts. Chevelle is a very good band with a tremendous studio sound that would be almost impossible to recreate live with just the 3 brothers."
