"You might be asking yourself what the hell is Doane? It's not a band, it's a director. And this DVD chornicles high points in Darren Doane's video making career, with videos from Strife, Living Sacrifice, Poison The Well, Thrusday, Norma Jean, Shadows Fall and more. like 16 videos total. I can say for the most part that his videos really aren't much more than performance clips with limited story telling. Some of his story ideas don't seem to pertain to the songs at all, like what's with the naked people in towels and a dove doing in a Thursday video? I can say that vids like Poison The Well's "Botchla" and Shadows Fall's "Thoughts without words" were beautifully shot. The picture quality is amazing, lots of good colors. Extras on the DVD include the usual Commentary, interviews with Doane as well as Derek Hess, who did the art as well, has featured flyers, drawings and Cover art gallery on the DVD. There is also a RAW footage section where you can 'make your own video'. I didn't get that part, and still don't think I will. It's a pretty good DVD, but would been a better choice to showcase all of his videos which include Jimmy Eat World, Blink 182 and Unwritten Law. And the Norma Jean video is awesome and makes this worth a purchase."
