"The "documentary" was horrible! It pretty much consisted of the camera following the band around outside or in a cab with songs from the band playing. The few times the band members spoke during the documentary they seemed like they were being forced to talk at gunpoint or something. The video coverage of the concert in LA was shoddy. The only redeeming thing about the dvd is the four or five song set played on the second portion of the dvd. Overall I was a very dissapointed Bloc Party fan!"

"I was very suprised when I found out that Bloc Party came out with a dvd. They are still a rather small indie band and barely known in the states. I'm a big fan of them, but have never seen them live so I was a little unsure.
The dvd menu has two features: documentary and their live show in Belfort, France. The documentary is a mix of band interviews and live clippings from a LA venue. The LA show was good live footage, and they sounded excellent however the interviews with the band were dull and pointless. Bloc Party isnt as interesting as they are on stage; I dont blame the band entirely-it is the journalists/interviewer's questioning.
If you like live footage and don't care as much about getting to know the band personally then this dvd is perfect. I was happy regardless because Bloc Party rocks."
