Better in person than on DVD

"First off, here is the set list:
Big Blue Car
Like A Rocket
The Party In Your Head
Baddest of the Bad
I Can't Surf
Loco Gringos Like A Party
It's Martini Time
The Devil's Chasing Me
Big Red Rocket Of LoveLooks and sounds OK. Video/DVD doesn't do the Rev justice. Have to see it live. The first 4 songs are off of the last 2 albums (Lucky 7 and Spend a Night in The Box). Energy really doesn't pick up until Big Sky. The last few times I've seen the Reverend, Bales of Cocaine was nowhere to be found. Not sure if that song has been retired or what, but it is one of their better songs, and it isn't on the DVD.Just by watching these guys perform, you can see that these guys actually work for a living... and they bust their a**es doing it. The bonus stuff would probably be of interest to some of the more hardcore fans, but I don't think any newbies would get much out of it.All in all, not a bad disc. The things that make The Rev so good live (the crowd, the sweat and the smell of cheap beer) don't really carry over to the DVD. So, if it has been a few months since The Good Reverend has been in your town, this DVD will keep you going until the next time they come around."
IF YOU'RE REV FAN, YOU SHOULD LOVE IT

"IT'S THE REV!
What's with all the whining about the technical quality and the set list? I doubt you knit-pickers could ever be satisfied. Maybe you didn't watch it loud enough? I am grateful for the opportunity to have it."
Just buy the CD "Revival"

"I was sooooo excited when I saw this DVD in stores, but when I brought it home, I was disappointed. The quality isn't that great, the camera angles are boring, and it just didn't do The Reverend justice. The interviews were a mildly interesting, but basically, you should just get the "Revival" CD with the DVD in it. It's the same footage."
Camera work is amatuerish and dizzying; audio just ok

"The cameraman apparently thought he was being clever by zooming in and out and tilting the camera each way, with rapid fire switches between too close and too far.The result was motion sickness and my wishing that the camera lingered so I could study the Rev or Jimbos handiwork. Instead the camera changes angle every 4 seconds.Big fans will like this as it is all that is out there, but darn it, hire a better crew next time Rev. This was disappointing. I'll keep coming to your shows of course, but this DVD is going onto the shelf."
