"I have been waiting a long long time for Jamiroquai to release a DVD with their best videos. Well, the time has unfortunately come. Don't get me wrong, the compilation is excellent but the sound quality of this DVD REALLY REALLY SUCKS !!! For all of you who are lucky like me to own a large Home Theater system (AVR Denon 5800, DVD Denon 2800, B&W Speakers DM605S2, DM602S2 and LR6S2, PB12-Plus/2 SVS Subwoofer and InFocus projector) you will hate this DVD to the bone. Every video was recorded in its original sound. Not only didn't they re-masterize the tracks to DTS or Dolby Digital but the stereo sound was left 'as it is' or should I say 'as it was', with its original sound, not even the 'stereo' was re-masterized. YES, believe or not, every track has different response to treble and bass as well as 'sound quality'. I still can't believe Jamiroquai allowed this DVD be released with such terrible sound.
Jamiroquai, next time try hiring some of the people who worked on the sound quality of Queen, Genesis, Phil Collins or Peter Gabriel DVDs.
Best Music Video Dvd Ever!!!!

"This dvd is the best video compilation i've purchased in a while. it contains all of jamiroquai's videos in chronological order plus awesome interviews with Jay Kay in the bonus features. I would have to say that my favorite videos would have to be: Space Cowboy, You Give me Something, Dont Give Hate a Chance, and Canned Heat. This dvd is a must for any Jamiroquai fans. Alot of these videos were very hard to find in the U.S. before this was released. Its Four Stars from Me!!!!"
All Jamiroquai's Greatest On DVD!!

"I have to echo the other reviewer who said that this is a
must for all true Jamiroquai fans!--
This is a great visual accompaniment to all the great music
that Jamiroquai has made in the last 15 yrs!
I became a fan of Jay Kay and the gang in 1994 with the band's
second album "Return Of The Space Cowboy" and that one remains
one of my favorites by them.
My favorite period is from 1992's "Emergency On Planet Earth"
to 2001's "Funk Oddysey"...that was good stuff!
Like I said in my review of "Space Cowboy",
I don't get the vocal comparisons to Stevie Wonder
that alot of people say about Jay Kay
because they sound absolutely nothing alike!
(And trust me, I know the Stevie Wonder reportoire very well!)
Jay Kay has his own thing: vocally, personality
and stage presence-wise! I love the way he moves, as if
defying space & time itself! As for the music, they do rely
on the 70's lexicon, but that's not a bad thing at all!
That music was real, organic, atmospheric and soulful with
lyrics that had meaning, melodies that got down into your psyche
and musical dynamics and sophistication that made it timeless!
If anything, the british kids of the late 80's and early 90's
were doing exactly what they should've been doing here in America..
putting a new spin on the old and creating a statement for the future!
Stuart Zender is an absolutely incredible bassist!
It's like the late Bernard Edwards of CHIC, Verdine White of E,W&F
and Larry Graham of Sly & The Family Stone / Graham Central Station
morphed and merged into the body of a young white kid!
Jay Kay was a fool to let him go!!
In this day and age of over-choreographed, contrived,
corporate-sponsored pop drivel that lacks substance,
it was acts like Jamiroquai, The Brand New Heavies,
Me'shell N'Degeocello, Floetry, Maxwell, D'Angelo and a few
others that kept me going throughout the 90's!
More young people should pick up instruments, study their craft
and breathe life back into popular music, be it R&B/Funk,
Jazz, Alternative, Rock--(Whateva!)--Just make your own statement!
This collection of videos is even more the bomb for me,
being an american and never getting to see these videos
as they came out (with the exception of
"Virtual Insanity" & "Alright" )because american
radio stubbornly refused to embrace Jamiroquai's music.
SO----Long story short!
Buy This DVD collection if you like good music.
Makes me wanna dance, dance, dance!

"If you LOVE Jamiroquai then you will LOVE this collection of videos. I bought this after watching Napolean Dynamite, I forgot he sang Canned Heat. So I had an urge to dance in my pajamas in the living room while feeling like I landed on Jupiter and all without mind altering substances even! Needless to say this Jamiroquai DVD helped to fulfill my need to dance like no one was watching..."
