"Well as you can see all the reviews are 4 stars or better! I've been a fan of Shadow since like 98 or 99, i'll try to give an objective review! This item is well worth the money for Shadow fans or trip-hop fans or DJ fans! I highly suggest you check out any single song by Shadow before you buy this item, his music is not very conventional to any genre...even trip-hop which doesn't really have a standard sound! If you like a song, you'll like them all and this product!
The DVD's main show is like an hour and half long live performance by Shadow! Its a cross section of every one of his albums, but songs mixed with each other in amazing combinations! With on-stage visuals (most are cued to the music) which are often editted to show on your screen clearly! You also get some other bonus performances of Shadow with Numark and Cut Chemist (I think) which is interesting!
The CD is a shortened version of the same main performance on the DVD! I like this because i'd want to listen to it without a dvd player!
This dvd/cd set is a really great reward for any of his fans in that you get to hear everything mixed in new ways while actually seeing how he does his thing! (Example: he blends What Does Your Soul Look Like 2 with Bloodstain) Then there's also the on-stage and on-screen visuals! Just in case anybody is worried about the sound quality, being that this is video of a live performance, fear not! The sound quality on the DVD and on the CD sounds as clear as studio production!
As far as mildly interested people that aren't really fans of Shadow, I suggest you get any one of Shadow's albums or DL a song or two so you know what the music sounds like! Its not really conventional to any genre!
*if my use of exclamation points makes this review seem less sincere, i apologize! please re-read and substitute periods for the exclamation points! Or for an entirely new spin on it, try using question marks at the end of each sentence! it really sounds less sincere that way!

"I cannot understand why this guy doesnt get more attention. I'm a relatively new fan and I think hes one of the best dj's out there. He is a true artist, a creative genius. His work goes way beyond mere sampling, he creates new soundscapes and whole new compositions. The sound on this dvd is absolutely A class, I have a vast collection, and the sound of this ranks right up there with the new Led Zepplin and Nine Inch Nails Dvd which both are encoded with DTS, and Dj Shadow's dvd isnt, which makes the sound all the more remarkable. The Bass is floor shaking and he truly makes use of the rear speakers, I was enveloped with sound from the get-go. The music is awesome and this is the best I've heard him or any trip-hop/techno music, the 5.1 really brings out the music to life. The set list was awesome, it emcompasses all of his albums and his work with Unkle as well. One of my favorite parts in this was the visuals, they never get boring and they are really trippy, makes me wish I still smoked weed, on that note, if you do smoke weed or use x or acid, this would be the perfect thing to watch. I was thinking if you had a party like that , this would be the ideal thing to put on and have everyone zone out to. Enjoy!!"
Watch it Non-stop...

"You Wouldnt think that watching a Dj would be entertaining, but Dj shadows Performance captured "In Tune and on Time" Is amazing. The energy from the crowd is like no other, the images go all too well with the music and he the disks special features are as well entertaining, (there is actually a hidden section on some of the making of music videos)AND on TOP of that, DVD is accompanied by a audio cd of the perfomance. In my opinion, Shadow is one of the most talented artists to hit the scene. This is a must have item just like anything else shadow is involved with."
