"So I actually own this dvd (which is odd since it doesn't come out til 10/4/05), and it is incredible! It is an absolutely amazing performance. All it needs is a scratch-n-sniff box that smells of smoke and beer and you'd think you were actually there. The video quality is stunning. The audio is unbelievable. Thick raunchy fuzz tones (as one might expect), and of course Patrick brutally assaults his drum kit like some kind of maniac. It is so good, I caught myself wanting to applaude and go nuts after most songs (as if I were actually there). Now I am using a pretty decent home theatre setup w/ a powered sub, so results may vary slightly. But you will surely have your socks rocked off.
I almost forgot to mention, this dvd also has music videos for 10AM Automatic and Set You Free, a great interview with the guys, and a live photo gallery. Oh, and the song that plays during the main menu is really funky and good. I haven't heard it before. Some kind of jam they must have done.
Dan is so "on" with his gee-tar, it makes you sick. Seriously, the guy is so talented. Rock critics are going to go nuts when this dvd hits the streets in October. Patrick kills it on the drums, but Dan is the frontman and his performance really stands out. The stars and planets must have been aligned that night in Australia...
I just want to say thanks to Dan and Patrick for putting out a dvd of such great quality. I have daily cravings for the Black Keys rocked-out-thick-fuzz-goodness, and this dvd more than satisfies them (at least until they come back to Chicago so I can see them live)."
The Black Keys do a great dvd

"I have wanted to go see these guys play in Austin(Texas), the last several times they have played there, but something always comes up and I don't go. That having been said, I really enjoyed this dvd. I am going to have to figure out how to get to Austin the next time they play. They have a lot of energy and they are really into the songs. I would have liked to see more of their blues/blues-rock stuff on it, since most of the stuff on it is rock.
They do a lot with the duo setup. I was wondering how they would play some of the songs since there is overdubbing on parts of the albums. I liked what they did, although I got a little tired of the riff/ fill repetition on the songs, but with two people I am not sure what I expected."
Great purchase for a fan

"I got this as one of my husband's stocking stuffers. He's already a big Black Keys fan and he loves to watch music DVDs. He really liked it and seems to enjoy watching it."
