"I have this on VHS. This comes off as something slightly better than a bootlegged show. A two camera setup may be a step above normal bootleg quality but the third camera, (stationary, above the drums) provides less than perfect picture.For the MELVINS completist, I'd say go for it. Casual fans may want to borrow a friends' copy."

"Hey, it's a Melvins' show, alright? Alright! This DVD captures the claustrophobia and heat and frenzy in the same way you'd probably remember it if you'd been there. Isn't that really the point? You would have been drunk or more, things would have been hectic, choppy, hazy. Maybe you would have been hit on the head. Maybe you would have collapsed in a corner. It would not have been glitzy or hi-tech or brightly lit or air-conditioned. It would have been sweaty and turbulent and frenzied and exhilarating and you wouldn't have been able to hear for days. So chuck in the DVD, turn your sound-system up real loud, take off your shirt, pour a beer over your head, get close to the tee vee, and rock out! Relive those days without much of the headache. And the next day you'll remember it as if you'd actually been there back in the day.If you're looking for mixed greens, then this probably isn't for you, because, let's face it, it's pretty lo-fi, but if you have no problem with crunchy iceberg lettuce, then dig in."

"You know, if you got in to the Melvins after 90' you wouldn't appreciate this video. No, it doesn't have Lorax on Bass but it has Joe Preston (Thrones fame) and if you're used to the type of quality of the Target Video footage then you know this is a crucial video. A must see for fans of the Indie Melvins..."
