How to scam the public and rip off the band 101
S. D. Johnson | La Sierra, CA, USA | 02/17/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The only value of this video is as an object lesson in how to legally scam the public into buying crap and how to legally rip off the works done by a band.

The "critics" in this video are a bunch of unknown people who pontificate about this or that. They obviously haven't listened to the music in years as they continually mess up details. For example, one of these idiots talks about how Grantchester Meadows starts with Roger Waters swatting a fly. Obviously, anyone that has listened to the song knows that the fly swatting incident comes at the end of the tune and serves as an ironic counter to the song's crooning for nature to come into the city. Yes, it is a minor detail, but if someone is supposed to be an "expert" they should know the details that a true fan would know.

The rest of the commentary in this set is provided by two members of a Floyd rip-off band called "Forever Autumn" or something like that. The guitar guy shows how ineptly he copies Gilmour's playing and the singer girl is -- well, she's at least pleasant looking.

The commentary is accompanied by video and audio that they obviously obtained for free or for a very low cost. All video clips of the Floyd are overlayed with big lettering indicating that it belongs to this or that promotional video released by Columbia. The music is either short clips of the live versions of some songs or cheap symphonic or bad rock instrumental versions done by unknown bands who should remain unknown.

If the price for this disc were $10 it would be too much to pay for such crap. If it were $5 you'd feel bad about buying it, but would not feel a total sucker. Only if the price were $1 each would the discs be worth it because it is worth $1 to protect your table's fine wood from sweating glasses, bottles or cans.

It would also be useful as a disc to scratch up to test how much damage can be done to a disc before it becomes unreadable. It would also be a good disc to stick in a microwave to see what happens. Other than that, I cannot think of any reason anyone would want to own this trash."
Rip off

"I have purchace the DVD yesturday for 35 $ Canadian and it is absolutly not worth it.Contains no vidéo of pink floyd, Cannot read cretics on the TV, caraters with shadow makes it really hard to read, no book in the casse, DVD is only 58 min. The only extra il a remake of Cunfortably Numb by an unknown band.( Remake is not that bad but i was expecting way more from this DVD ) At first this was suppose to be a double DVD set, but it as been split for america it is really no worth this amount. ( The cover says 2nd edition but the DVD says third edition.....) Really low budget."

"I bought this DVD,thinking that I'm going to see pink floyd talking about their albums.At least,that's what I read in the booklet.Well,the total time pink floyd appear in the DVD is about 2 minutes.In the rest 45 minutes we see some critics about the albums and,of course,"mostly autumn",a band who is clearly copying the floyd(espesially in comfortably numb).If you are a new floyd fan,then buy it and simply note the albums you don't have.There is no other reason to buy this DVD and waste your money in something like this.If you listen to the floyd for many years,simply save your money for the PULSE DVD."
