Waste of money

"I'm in the Navy on nuclear submarines and I'd heard about a new STAIND DVD hitting the stores before my most recent deployment. Before I left I'd heard that the band wanted to add more content and make it a dual-DVD set which pushed the release date back to 1st Quarter 2002. I got back from my deployment and in my excitement, mistook the Stained: Tainted DVD as that product.
This DVD is a huge letdown in every way. No music from the band, shady combinations of home video quality and black & white photography, cheesy interviewers with Springfield DJs who's half-sister's, brother's, nephew's cousin used to deliver Chinese take-out to the band, etc.
My ONLY consolation for my fellow STAIND fans out there is the comfort of knowing that STAIND is soon to release THEIR official 2-disc DVD set very soon. Keep the faith."

"DO NOT purchase this if you are looking for information on the band. This was poorly made. It does not talk about the band much at all. This is more of a how to video for aspiring musicians using Staind as a referrence, and poorly at that. They spend time interviewing people, in which only two of them have ever met the band. They actually put a guy on there that tells about the first time he saw the band and it was on MTV, the video for "Outside", which most of you know was just this past spring. There is no music or performance footage of the band. The background music is terribly cheesy, and the whole thing is just a waste of hard earned money. Beware..."
Buying this would be a big mistake

"That DVD is such a disgrace. It was so bad that it was insulting. It had no real material, they interviewed people who were unrelated to Staind, and pieces of information given in the video I later found to be incorrect. This was absolutely terrible. Please do not buy this. I lost on this... and gained nothing from it what-so-ever.I was totally looking forward to watching a wonderful and informative dvd... but this was quite the opposite. I absolutely love Staind, but this was just a sad attempt at making something related to them so people would buy it.. (or so it very much seems)."

"A very poorly made documentary of the band. Since it is unauthorized, the only footage of the band is from ten black and white photos shown over and over and ten seconds of silent performance footage (played often in slo-mo to make it look longer). Generic rock music is played in the background while Springfield Mass area DJs and club owners are interviewed about the band. Members of Springfield area bands who never even met Staind are also interviewed to add to the run time.You don't learn a thing about the group, even well known stories about them aren't told. No thought was put into telling the band's story, just wanted to make a fast buck.Living in the Springfield area and knowing many of the places shown on the DVD wasn't even enough to keep me from being bored by this attempt to cash in on the Staind success.Bottom line: It probably costs more to buy the DVD than it did to make it."
