A dream come true for all SMFs!!

"This is a really great package. When you need a fix of Twisted Sister, this should do it. All five members from the classic eighties lineup are back. Note I didn't say original members. Jay Jay French is the only original member and Dee Snider was actually Twisted's third singer. But yes, Jay Jay, Mark 'The Animal', Eddie Ojeda, A.J. Pero, and Dee Snider and from the looks of their concert footage they are 'Still Hungry'.
My only real complaint about this video is that the concert is broken up. You go from the stage, to the studio, back to the concert, cut to another interview, then back to old concert footage, then to the new live footage, then back to the studio for more interviews. Get the idea? You just can't hit 'Play Concert' and watch a concert. It's all broken up. I wish Twisted had done what Anthrax did with their new DVD. You can play the concert, or go to 'Bonus Material' to see the interviews.
As for Twisted though, the new live footage is awesome. Mark still attacks his bass rather than play it, Eddie can still whip out a solo as good as ever, and Dee is still Dee. He can still curse at a crowd and get a mob all riled up for the next number.
The interviews were done well also. Jay Jay has a lot to say as does Mark. I think Mark still feels a lot of resentment towards Dee, you can hear it in his voice, but he's playing ball with the rest of the band. Good thing too, because Mark kicks butt on bass and Twisted ain't Twisted without him. The USO footage of Twisted Sister visiting Korea was awesome. Watch Twisted Sister at the DMZ line. North Korean guards are staring at them very intently as Dee asks if he's allowed to take photos of them. See the band ride in a CH-46 helicopter while signing guitars for the crew.
It's great to see Twisted Sister back, there is hope for mankind after all."

"What a treat for TS fans. Great video, sound quality, and production. If you want to see a band that hasn't missed a step in 30 years, this is it. Dee Snider is one of the true icons of Rock and Metal. His humor and honest is his trademark that needs to be appreciated even by Tipper Gore. If you loved this, check out the dvd "Heavy Metal - Louder than Life". Keep it metal...Cat"
The best show!!!!!!!

"this is just the best live show i've seen, twisted fu***ng sister rocks!!!, the energy they all bring is amazing, considering they are way over 40 years old, yes, in some reviews you read that you can't play the whole show, true, but it feels good to hear the band members' comments and points of view, it doesn't break the flow of the show, and you still get the songs complete, and i have to agree when they say that dee snider is the best frontman in the world, my only regret is not beeing in wacken for that show, i hope i can still catch them live before they finnaly call it quits, a definitley must buy for all the heavy metal/hard rock fans an for all the SMFs, and remember, when you buy it, PLAY IT LOUD MUTHA!!!!!!!! TWISTED FU**ING SISTER RULES,"YOU'RE AN SMF""
