Great Performance, Well Worth the Money

"This DVD showcases a stellar Ghostland Observatory performace. The DVD includes two non-album songs, Heavy Heart and Robotique Majestique, which are amazing. Purchase this DVD and you won't be disappointed."

"These guys are incredible. I was introduced to them by watching them perform on my local PBS station. I was knocked out by their energy and stage presence. I love to watch Aaron dance. Their impact on me was the same as the first time I saw Elvis on TV when I was a kid. I can't describe how musically orginal, talented, and fearless they are. I'm an older guy and I love these two. I hope they gain wide acceptance."
Totally diferent

"These guys are good. The singer is like a mix between Freddy Mercury, "Mick" Jagger and some native american added into the dancing. The two of them don't interact with one another and one doesn't seem to mind ach other. The only interaction between the two is at the end when they just walk out the stage. Interesting to see this guys perform. Must see!"
GHOSTLAND OBSERVATORY: A Powerful Presence in Sound & Perfo

"Aaron Behrens and Thomas Turner make for one helluva sound that becomes the ritual performance of Ghostland Observatory. I say ritual, as there is something about their music that feels sacred. The first time I watched this show on PBS I was mesmerized (being a big fan of The Doors). Fans are comparing Ghostland Observatory to "Freddie Mercury meets David Bowie and Velvet Underground". Yet Ghostland Observatory has their OWN, a unique feel with Behrens on vocals and guitar, and Turner on the keyboards and drums. Beats are a combination of electric glam-rock and hip-hop; sometimes reminding me of The Cure, but not depressing in ANY way! Once you start to get into their music, it feels as if the earth is turning beneath your feet! Behrens is especially charismatic as a front man and performer, one who raises energy and spirit. Turner is grounded, at the same time ethereal. Visually they are both fun to watch. And you don't ever want to stop the dance... Lyrics are erotic, romantic; performance is powerful and humble at the same time. I love the self-effacing humility of these two guys; they are going to need it! Crowds will soon start throwing themselves in one direction - at their stage! CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THEM IN CONCERT IN SEATTLE!!"
