"I have been listening to Sabbath for over 25 years, and was highly looking forward to this disc. Be warned that VERY FEW of the songs are heard all the way through without cutting to an interview, or talking overtop the performance. This happens song after song. The interviews were interesting for one or two viewings, but to have to sit through that everytime you want to watch some music is really annoying. At least if the interviews could have been kept to only between songs you could skip them when you want. So, there STILL isn't a Sabbath concert video! Also, the sound mix for 5.1 was pathetic. Listen to Woodstock or Fleetwood Mac The Dance, and then to this. This is mud. There are only three instruments playing, why can't you clearly hear Geezer? His fingers are smoking, but it's all lost somewhere in the mix with the drums. That is what was great about their albums, each instrument was crisp and clear and you could hear how great a musician each one is. The director and the sound mixer really dropped the ball on this one, because obviously the show that they destroyed, was great."
Great show, but the interviews nearly ruin it.

"Based purely on the performance itself, this DVD deserves 5 stars. The performance is a lively one (especially coming from 4 guys in their 50's), and the sound quality is great. All of Sabbath's greatest songs are included here, and they sound as good as ever. Just a great show. However...Included along with this is an interview with the band. The interview is interesting, and very funny, but it is broken into several small pieces that pop up sporadically throughout the show. If you just want to watch the concert, and not the interview, this can be very annoying. Worse yet, they actually chopped off the entire last verse of "Electric Funeral" because of this. They should have included the interview as a special feature, so that you could watch them separately. But other than that, this is quite a good package. The band is in top form. Ozzy said it best himself when he said, "We can still outrock most of these young punks anyday". I believe him. The musicianship is excellent (Geezer Butler and Bill Ward are severely underrated), and the songs rock hard. If you can put up with the constant interruptions, this is totally worth it."
A BIG disappointment

"I've listened to Sabbath for most of my life, and was initially pleased to get the opportunity to see a video of the long-awaited reunion of the original lineup. But whoever was responsible for editing this video left MUCH to be desired.
Do not expect this to be a live rendition of the REUNION CD's that this concert was supposed to mirror. The song "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" was omitted entirely, and many of the other songs have interviews with band members edited in the middle of the tracks. You will NOT see an uninterrupted concert of the show.
This DVD is obviously a "splicing" of at least two different Sabbath shows, because there are songs where Ozzy is wearing a shirt or else shirtless in the same song. It can be a little unnerving. And, . . . I appreciate crowd participation as much as the next guy, but Ozzy's constantly enticing the crowd to "go f***ing crazy" gets irritating FAST - this video and the REUNION CD would have been better without all of the profanities.
This otherwise might have been a great concert to watch, with maybe a second disc with all the interviews and bonus features. Buy this USED if you are a die-hard Sabbath fan, but I don't recommend that the casual listener invest much into it."
Monkey at the controls!!!

"the show starts with an incredible performance of war pigs. unbelievable! everybody - ozzy, geezer, ward and iommi - are in great form!
the next song is nib. just when tony iommi breaks into the immortal solo, that's the time these freaks to insert an interview! i was speechless, my heart was in my friggin hand and every known expletive spewing from my mouth - the m*%$#r f#$%^rs ...
likewise it is with every song that follows.
what must have been a truly great show is ruined in this dvd!
this is one of the moments you wish something like the texas chainsaw massacre happened in these stupid music companies!"
5 stars for the concerts & one for the product

"Amazing live performance shot down by some lousy editing where most of the the songs are interrupted by interview with the band members.
The band seems to be in real fine form. It's a real shame that we get to see only snippets. Why would the producers do such a thing, as this is a live presentation of concerts and not a biography of Black Sabbath.
This DVD is like a tease act. I'm waiting for the day when these concerts will be released without the interupptions.That will be a great BUY! "
