"Most of this DVD consists of interviews with various friends-of-friends of Oasis and music critics ("expert contributors" as the DVD calls them). Highlights include Paolo Hewitt, Nigel Clark, Clint Boon from Inspiral Carpets, and critic Andrew Mueller, who really doesn't seem to like what he's reviewing at all. The format is a song-by-song critique, preceded by a brief overview of Definitely Maybe. "Cast No Shadow" is completely omitted and no mention of it is made whatsoever - maybe they forgot?
The video has a very amateur feel to it; the interviews in particular look like they were shot with a cheap DV camcorder, and the whole thing could have been put together with iMovie. The amateur feel to this title is reinforced by an incorrect copyright notice (!) over one of the video clips.
There is no real insight; nothing that fans of this album didn't already know. Morning Glory borrows the riff of The One I Love. DLBIA uses the piano part from Imagine. You don't say?
Brief video snippets of the Gallagher brothers do little to redeem this thing, as the majority of them are just excerpts from the official video releases (Live By the Sea / There and Then / Familiar To Millions) anyway. A real shame, as there must be so much archival footage out there."
