"As much as I love Anthrax, and would like to see everything that they have ever done released on DVD, Return of the Killer A's Video Collection is jumbled and inconsistent. That's not to say that I didn't love every minute of it! Seldom seen music videos, live concert footage in MI from the Persistence of Time tour, and humorous behind the scenes segments make this a must-have for Anthrax fans old and new. Although, it would have been better if the DVD was either a definitive collection of music videos or a live concert. This inconsistent mix put future Anthrax DVD releases (and please keep them coming) in jeopardy of rereleasing the same footage; especially on any kind of video anthology that may be down the road. Otherwise, this is a very entertaining release from a great band."

"Ever since I first heard a poorly-recorded mishmash of unlabeled Anthrax songs on a cassette tape, I have been a fan. These underrated, highly musical thrashers have earned my respect as musicians, songwriters, social commentators, and people. I have all of their albums dating back to Spreading The Disease (minus a few of the "I'm The Man" EPs and live albums). When I saw that they had released a DVD, I nearly wet myself with delight. I went and bought it the next day, and I don't think I've ever been so happy over a purchase as I was over this. A great collection of music videos, live footage, and random videoclips from Anthrax's personal vault, well-organized by a simple, user-friendly interface all make this DVD a must-have for any fan of the band. My only complaint was that there are no music videos for any songs prior to "The Sound Of White Noise" (I believe someone else has that complaint as well), however the songs they did choose were awesome. Even my friend Matt who thrives on odd-tempo jazz and neo-classical epics from India LOVES Anthrax and this DVD. I even made him (and myself) a "best of" Anthrax compilation which I gave the same name as this review. In case any of you are interested, this is the tracklisting I chose for that: (1)A.I.R.; (2)Among The Living; (3)Caught In A Mosh; (4)Efilnikufesin (N.F.L.); (5)Now It's Dark; (6)Finale; (7)Intro To Reality/Belly Of The Beast;(8)In My World; (9)Room For One More; (10)Nothing; (11)Fueled; (12)Inside Out; (13)604; (14)Toast To The Extras; (15)Cupajoe; (16)Alpha Male; (17)Giving The Horns; (18)Friggin' In The Riggin'. As for 604 and Cupajoe, those were just taking up the sumodd 2:00 minutes of spare time I had on the CD, which is now a damned full 79:30!! Anyways, ANY fan of Anthrax MUST have this DVD, and it MUST BE CRANKED UP while being watched!! ROCK ON to all those fans of ANTHRAX out there!! Those extras they're toasting to, I like to think of those as us... so a toast to us extras, AMONG THE LIVINNNNGG!!! Give those horns high, later."

"this dvd is awesome, i have yet to get it though. this dvd contains concert footage of their early tours and that is awesome. joey belladonna and john bush are both great singers but if i had to choose i would go for belladonna because he is anthrax's first real singer and everybody knows anthrax by him. they should have a dvd that is dedicated to their early tours. but my only kind of complaint is it's all chopped up and their all just crammed together(but thats not such a big deal). this is worth the money, i recommend that you go out and pick it up. also check out their earlier stuff like "AMONG THE LIVING", "SPREADING THE DISEASE" and get their greatest hits cd, "RETURN OF THE KILLER A'S""
