"This DVD is so GREAT!! some of my favorite songs, good performances, the backstage footage is hilarious and a good personal look at the band. so glad to finally have some Meat Puppets concert footage in my collection.ALSO- this DVD is REGION O- it can be viewed in any country. i know that is important to a lot of my international Puppets fan friends. and this listing on Amazon says differently-dont belive what it says on there."
Their talent is undeniable

"I was more than pleased with this DVD. The audio is far better than I had expected, since the Puppets' performances were captured on camcorders. The visuals are obviously nothing spectacular, but one is not purchasing this DVD for the visuals.
There's a whole range of styles and sounds. During more than one song, I thought that Jimmi Hendrix would have been impressed with some of the guitar work; I certainly was mesmerized.
The Meat Puppets are a unique band, and this DVD successfully showcases their talent. My 19 year old nephew, who is more of a mainstream pop and hip-hop listener, was intrigued by what he saw and heard.
For Meat Puppet fans, this is a must have item and would rate as a five star DVD. For lovers of music, this would rate as a three star item. I'm trying to be fair and consistent with my reviews.
I am biased; I love the Puppets."
Godfathers of Alt rock worth 10 stars **********

"All though the Meat Puppets never met the success of Nirvana, Pearl Jam , AIC etc.. People that were fans of the band knew something special when they heard it. Kurt Cobain knowing this brought the masses to the band and that in turn brought the puppets their hard earned respect and a top 40 tune w/ Backwater from the certified gold record Too High to Die.This DVD Covers everything and more on the bands career and even has a hidden bonus w/ a Jon Stewart performance thats worth the $15 alone. I think the coolest part of this DVD is the instore acoustic performance from 1994 promoting THTD. Curt, Cris, & Derrick play steller tunes that will blow any listener away.If you never heard of the band or just heard Backwater on the radio buy this DVD you will become a fan after watching it. Crank it up and enjoy! Also check out the most underrated rock cd of last year Eyes Adrift you wont be sorry!"
