A solid, loaded music DVD

Slane 01. All My Life 02. Everlong
Reykjavik -- Audio Only 01. All My Life 02. The One 03. Times Likes These 04. My Hero 05. Learn to Fly 06. Have It All 07. For All the Cows 08. Breakout 09. Generator 10. Stacked Actors 11. Low 12. Hey, Johnny Park! 13. Monkey Wrench 14. Aurora 15. Weenie Beenie 16. Tired of You 17. Everlong
(Some of the above songs are played acousticly; I have marked those that I remember being acoustic, including the acoustic-only Washington, D.C., show.)
I knocked off one star for a few reasons, partly because of the confusing "opening" title menu; I only saw it until after I finished playing the main live Toronto concert, not when the DVD first loaded.
It also would have been nice if the Reykjavik show (which is audio-only and has just a slideshow with pictures of the band) were also included in MP3 or a similar format. I doubt many people will play the DVD just to listen to the music without the video, so the ability to load it up an iPod or burn it to a CD would have been very nice.
Also in the Reykjavik show, when I select to play "Hey, Johnny Park!" the DVD plays "Low" instead.
If you like the Foo you'll likely enjoy all the live content on this DVD despite my few qualms with it. The songs on this DVD thankfully draw from all four Foo Fighter albums, and the band's energetic performance makes it a treat to watch and listen to."
Good but missing something special

1. It's the Foos. 2. It's 3 Hours of the Foos Live 3. It's a cheap DVD considering the content 4. It's worth the asking price just for the acoustic section alone!The Bad:1. The 5.1 Mix is horrible and make's Dave (Grohl) sound like he's singing in the bath (Stick to the Stereo track) 2. Half of the content is an "audio only" concert which covers nearly all of the same tracks as the video content, which is a disappointment!The Unforgiveable:1. After waiting so long for this DVD, i'm left feeling it could have been so much better 2. It doesn't convey the raw power and joy of seeing the Foos live, due to the soundtrack.These coments may seem harsh, but when you see DVD concerts such as Joe Satriani live in San Francisco, then you know what could have been."
Could it BE more confusing? And what's up with the SECRET I

"Navigating this DVD is confusing as hell. Aside from that, the music is great, video quality is excellent. Audio on DC and Slane is awful...it's like someone has turned the volume up to 11 on a bad little boom box. All in all, though, it's jam packed with good Foo stuff.
DID ANYONE ELSE NOTICE THE "BONUS" CONCERT? I was copying the contents of the DVD into iTunes so I could view it on my iPod, and I found and extra section on the disc containing 35 minutes of concert footage in Ireland...Dave's got a button-down green shirt on, and he keeps talking about The Hives in between songs...the footage is not mentioned or listed anywhere on the DVD's menu, and not accessible using a DVD player, or DVD playing software on the computer...it's weird."
Everything that's great about the Foo Fighters!

"I really do not understand the all the negative reviews being posted. I believe this concert DVD nails everything into a great package that I find myself watching over and over:
1. great set list
2. incredible musicianship
3. great mix (stereo and 5.1)
4. great camera work (makes you feel like you're there)
Above all, Mr. Grohl and Co. appear to be having the time of their lives and truly seem to appreciate their fans. The feeling is, and always will be, mutual. Rock on."
