"Okay... Let me point out what has been overtly criticized: The concert audio is not the best, true... However, this DVD is not about the concert audio. It's about what Blindside is, who they are and what they produce to people around them.
Inside you will find a wonderful documentary opening the band up so that we can take a peek deep into who they are. How they began as a four friends just wanting to make some music and turned into the artistic powerhouse that they are now. The documentary covers from their first album and ends with them working on their latest release (and incredible album): "The Great Depression."
As for the concerts, no, they don't have great audio... true, and yet, you can still tell that they play flawless live shows, musically speaking. Now, the energy that is Blindside is undeniable. If you can't feel it watching them play, you can see it in the faces of those that are there. Now, of course, you should go see them live if you have the opportunity (especially now, with their latest release), as you should any great band, but as far as the concerts go: Blindside fan or not, you'll enjoy the fact that they're such energetic and talented musicians.
The videos are great, if you haven't catched them in any of the local or national music networks, you should buy this just for the videos... and think of the Documentary and the Concerts as extras.
Overall, it is a buy that you'll not regret if you are a fan of talent and good musical presence. And if you're a Blindside fan and don't have it... what are you waiting for?"

"I just bought this dvd a few days ago, and i've yet to finish watching it. with tons of concert footage, videos for 'king of the closet', 'pitiful', 'all of us', etc, photo slideshows, and a documentary showing blindside's 10 year journey, it is a great buy. i only question how many times i need to see blindside perform the same song. the concert energy is perfectly captured. it's pretty sweet."
Pretty good, but expecting more

"Being a huge Blindside fan, I was have high hopes for their first DVD release. I was hoping that it would show more of the band memebers goofing off, then people just interviewing them and little previews of them on tour. I love how they have all of their videos, especially the awesome "Pitifu" video and "King of the Closet". I also love the cornerstone show, since I happened to be there :) All-In-all, If you think you must get this DVD then go ahead, especially if your that die-hard blindside like me. The videos and the show at Cornerstone are a huge plus. "
This history of the band until now

"This DVD chronicles the first 10 year's of the band with videos, a full show from Cornerstone 2003, a video history and numerous other tid bits. The video history of the band is tastefully done and shows how th band has progressed and notes achievements the band has come across, going from album to album and the tours in between. Don't get me wrong, it's not funny, but it's not as long as the drawn out Thrice documentary that was 2 hours long, this is under 45 minutes. You have every video the band has done up to this point including "King of the Closet" which features the guy from the Drowning Pool video (bit of trivia for you) as "About A burning fire" "All of Us", "Sleepwalking" and more. The cornerstone concert is wild, including most of the other live footage throught the dvd(the guitarist does a one handed cartwheel with his guitar!) This dvd wasn't packed full of a lot, but it's a lot more than what other bands have given us."
