"Firstly, I'm absolutely fanatical about Priest, and will always buy their stuff! There are bad points and good points about this DVD. Firstly, the bad: I was aware when I purchased this that it is an UNAUTHORIZED documentary... so, don't expect any interview footage of the band at all - it ain't there.
Sadly, what also isn't there is any of Priest's music - what you get is not-very-good cover versions of a few priest songs, edited over stock footage of a band that clearly isn't them and a few photos which are repeated over and over. The "album-by-album" review is missing key albums as well - "Unleashed", "Defenders" and "Ram It Down" are either mentioned in passing or simply omitted.
The good points: There's a great interview with Painkiller producer Chris Tsangarides which is really fun and informative; The rock journalists that are interviewed are also very well informed and, in the case of Malcolm Dome and Geoff Barton, fairly authorititive on Priest's story.
They cover a wide variety of interesting issues, particularly Rob's coming out of the closet, which Priest are generally very tight-lipped about.
In short, this DVD is only for the die-hard, must-have-everything fanatic - and keep your expectations very low!"
