Not too shabby

"I knew this DVD would have a lot of material from "Scarsick" (not my favorite POS album) but I bought this without hesitation and it's not too shabby! Disc one has a documentary of the band on the road during their 2005 tour (1 hour 14 minutes) and it's really well done. There are subtitles to this feature in English, French, and Swedish. The band mates seem to be down to earth and humble, but they are too serious and should lighten up. They don't seem to be having a lot of fun (either on stage or on the road) and stage presence is not the strength of this band. However, their playing and vocal harmonies are superb. They nail most songs.
The concert (disc two) is 1 hour and 48 minutes long. Highlights are "New Year's Eve" and "Ashes". Lowlights are "Disco Queen" and "Hallelujah". The audio mixes are stereo, DD, and DTS. The surround mixes do not use the center speaker. The video edits are quick but it's not horrid. What is horrid are the extras. On disc two you have to pass a quiz to view any of them. After you pass the quiz and are found "worthy" then you can watch them. Well, they aren't worthy of the time you wasted taking the test. Also, some of the extras are bogus, i.e., when you press the enter button on the remote you get a reply like "I got you - you moron"! Really stupid and irritating stuff. Finally, the DVD booklet comes with a story and the lyrics to every song they played, but you need a microscope to read it. Overall, if you're a fan, this is a must and you won't be disappointed.
