Still Smokin' is a comprehensive collection of promos from hip- hop's "vatos locos," Cypress Hill, spanning their 10-year, seven-album career. Following a brace of songs recorded live at San Francisco's Fillmore auditoriu... more »m, this selection settles into a tried and tested formula for half of its running time, using ghetto-real grainy footage of the moody trio stalking inner city streets. "When the Ship Goes Down" branches out into conceptual territory with a three-minute epic concerning internecine gang warfare that breaks up the band's performance. Set in a derelict warehouse, the hardcore romp of "Can't Get the Best of Me" is reminiscent of Fight Club's basement brawls. The set ends with Cypress Hill's most imaginative video to date, the hallucinogenic horror of "Puppet Master." In an American gothic set, guest star Dr. Dre is done up like a Papal Grim Reaper while the gold-painted and prosthetically enhanced B-Real makes like the Devil. --Chris Campion, Amazon.co.uk« less

"Just too good to say anything. Wordless. Just think a live-version of Hits From The Bong and get to the mood and you're gone with it.
This is what it should be here in Finland ;)"
Need more live footage

"This dvd is basically comprised of 3 parts: 1) Six songs from the Fillmore show in San Francisco 2) Almost all of Cypress' music videos 3) Superstar documentary/showOverall, this is a solid dvd that is worth the money. My main beef is the fact that they didn't put the entire Fillmore show on it, b/c the 6 performances are off the hook.Having most of Cypress' videos is cool, but I don't really watch them too much...especially the last one with Dre.Finally, the Superstar show is also included. This is basically Cypress' "Behind the Music" put on a dvd. Definitely worth watching."
How Many Hits Can You Take?

"PROS: The music videos are well done and artistic. The DVD has many great hits, and a lot of videos that you most likely have never seen. The TV Special (30 minutes) is pretty interesting. Quality of sound and picture in all tracks (including live) is great. CONS: Most (if not all) of the music videos have the lyrics edited for profanity. As for the live tracks at the beginning - they don't put on a great show. The live tracks are kind of boring. Overall, the pros outweigh the minor flaws. This is essential for any Cypress Hill fan. It's a blast to watch over and over, especially with friends - just don't buy it for the live performances; they're dissapointing."
Cypress Hill Kix It again

"This is a MUST OWN DVD for a true fan of Cypress Hill. These music videos are nearly impossible to find or download and its awesome with 27 Videos all on one disc. However I gotta say it would have been much better if Cypress had put the whole concert live on a DVD. MUST OWN!"
