"This review is to tell all of you loyal NIN fans how to get to the "Beneath The Surface" secret menu, to enjoy even MORE than the 2 disc concert that you all abosolutely love. It's also to inform people on how to get to it, whom didn't even know it existed, so they can enjoy MORE than just the 2 DVD concert and still photos.
The EXACT way to gain access to the "Beneath The Surface" easter egg menu is as follows:
"BENEATH THE SURFACE MENU INSTRUCTIONS"
Select the song "Head Like a Hole" on DISC 2.
At the "11:20" mark on your DVD player timer, hit the number "7" on your controller, then, press "Enter" on it.
You will then be treated to the SECRET "Easter Egg" and or "Beneath The Surface" menu. The Beneath The Surface menu contains the following:
1.) A LIVE performance of the song "Reptile." (A superb version done live..It's cool when it hits the quiet point and Trent is saying "please don't hurt me..." This performance is live, but during most of the performance, none of the audiance can be heard.)
2.) The scrapped Music Video for the track, "The Day The World Went Away." (The video is kind of boring, but the music video version of the song is really awesome. It's the live version, but without the live audiance in the background during most of the instrumentals. It also ends LIVE.)
3.) NineTyNine commercial.
4.) A promotional commercial for, "The Fragile."
5.) A promotional commercial for, "Things Falling Apart."
6.) Marilyn Manson & Nine Inch Nails doing "Starf**kers Inc." live. (But only the end of it...Manson comes in right as the song ends. Not to mention, the clip starts just about as the song ends...nothing too special.)
7.) Marilyn Manson & Nine Inch Nails doing "The Beautiful People" live. (Whole song...Trent on Guitars! Very cool song to see Manson and Trent doing together! Don't skip this!)
That's it for the Beneath The Surface menu. But here's some extra secret stuff you may want to consider trying out. Not that important, but fun to try.
"WIDESCREEN STAGE SHOT INSTRUCTIONS"
On DISC 1, select the song "Gave Up."
At around the "26:58" mark on your DVD player, press "Enter."
You will then get a wide shot of the stage, for the song being performed. (Some people can't get this to work, but I assure you, it'll work if you just keep trying.)
And there you have it my fellow Reznorians, all of the secrets of the And All That Could Have Been DVD have been revealed. Try them out, and have fun. They're defanantly worth the discovery if you're bored of the concert, and didn't know about the hidden extras, or aren't bored of the concert, and just want something new to add to the flavor of the DVD set."

"This DVD seriously rocks. From the excellent titles and menus to the sweet stage show the band puts on, this DVD maintains a technically stellar feel throughout the performances. I look forward to watching this over and over, with or without even turning the TV on. There are also hidden features and multiple viewing angles for your pleasure.Trent Reznor sounds very good, and the 5.1 Dolby Digital mix puts out some great audio. I was not able to see them when they toured, but that's ok because this DVD seemed to be designed to replicate the experience. They certainly do a great job doing so. Unlike some other concert DVD's I have bought or rented, the vocals and music sound very rich and . I would highly recommend this DVD. No really, I would. I am placing it ultra high on my must-have DVD list. 5-stars baby!"

"This concert was excellent. I usually prefer a more polished, studio quality production over rough live performances. But the raw energy and excellent production quality of this DVD overcame its small imperfections. If you want to see NIN in its natural state, check this out. And look out for the rumored upcoming Downward Spiral DVD release that was previously only available on VHS."
The extras ARE there.

"I miss the curtained performance of "Somewhat Damaged" I saw at the Minneapolis show, but this DVD is the closest a concert show has ever come to duplicating what it feels like to be in the audience.I saw a few people complaining about the lack of extras, so I'll let you all know what they are and how to find them:Insert Disc 2
