"Cypress Hill does not disappoint. Their set is good enough to make you want to watch it over and over again! Those of you lucky enough to have seen them live will get a chance to relive a good helping of the magic, 3 songs is not nearly enough though and I hope they put out a full concert DVD someday. Everlast is okay but he needs a throat doctor. Bone Thugs n Harmony didn't impress me much but I'm not a fan. The most pleasant surprise to me was the Circle Jerks set. If you dont fast forward thru their set and keep an open mind about it, I think you'd have to be dead not to be tapping your feet at some point during their show. Forget Fugazi and Rancid, the Circle Jerks take the crown when it comes to punk groups who could have been great but shunned the mainstream and I give props to Cypress Hill for putting them on the bill. Snoop Dogg, well, I'm a huge fan of his but he should realize things like saying "we're gonna blow the roof off this joint now" should not be followed by still more shuffling around the stage unexcitedly reciting lyrics along with 10 other people who do nothing but shuffle around...how about some instruments or special effects, Snoop. The sound is occassionally great and occassionally bad, and the audience could've been a little livelier, they -acted- smoked out. The extra segment showing B-real and his buddy Bobo working the crowd is hella funny. Bobo's like stoned putty by the end of it. Buy it if you dig Cypress Hill..."

"i want to give this dvd 5 stars so bad ya know, but the audio is soo bad i was gonna give it 3 but i gotta do at least 4.
the sound sounds mushy like they cut out all the ambience, like one of thoose people who listen to stuff with the treble way down. man, thoose people. you can barely hear the crowd and the music sounds louder than the actual artists, a little frustrating, specially to thoose with good home systems. this is the dvd that convinces you to buy a seperate graphic eq for your theater setup. youd probally solve some of this by just using your stereo preset because everything sounds better in
stereo. though when you have a surround setup you dont have it cause you like listening to only 2 speakers. great concert, i
will say that the kottonmouth kings at the beginning were in daylight all the rest of the dvd is dark all of the sudden.
what happened in between i don know. you see a couple motorcycles jump, thats it. would of liked more daytime
footage. i think snoop dogs gangster party with 2 pac in the
backtrack was good. love dvd, audio sucks, thats it."
