What went wrong?!

"I feel it necessary to give a brief background before I give my opinion of this DVD:
I got into Orgy when they released Vapor Transmission & was blown away- taken as a whole this album was near perfection to me- I went to see them twice on that tour. Am I a fan? Well, I am a fan of Vapor. (Candyass is a solid release; I'm not that thrilled with PunkStatik). Since 2003 I remember seeing on the band's website that they were planning a DVD...I kept waiting and waiting... The more time passed, the more impatient I became. I knew there was a lot of good footage to be had to put out a live DVD (I remember seeing an awesome live internet broadcast of the band playing songs for the release of Vapor, which was so well produced I just knew this would have to make it's way into the DVD release...NOT).
The DVD is mostly (95%) of the band behind the scenes/backstage, or getting ready to go on stage. The "live" concert footage you do get to see is mostly all the quality of a hand-cam bootleg. What happened to all the professionally recorded concert footage? You'll see the members getting drunk, being goofy, filming videos, having their eyebrows waxed, etc. At some point I said to myself that this surely must be a joke.
This is going to be difficult for me to say, but I feel so insulted that the band would release something so sub-par. It really boils my blood. Watching this DVD had me wading through the band's goofiness in search of one little morsel of music. When that music comes, it's usually badly recorded live audio which then cuts into the actual audio from their CD's. I already have their CD's, I don't need, nor appreciate this. Or, as is typical with this DVD: You'll see the band getting all hyped for a live show: being led to the stage & once on the stage you'll catch 10 seconds of them starting a song and then it cuts back to more backstage silliness.
I kept telling myself "This has to get better" and when they would show Amir prepping a guitar lick for a song I had some hope- finally some decent behind the scenes footage of them laying down studio tracks, but this would last 10 seconds & then go back to the band doing everything under the sun (except performing).
I'm going to give the band the benefit of the doubt and assume this DVD was released to satisfy their own self-serving needs and that they plan to follow it up with an actual live concert DVD (which I've been waiting a few years for).
The DVD includes their music videos, all the aforementioned footage and a dreadful navigation menu that merely chops this disc up according to each album.
Unless you are a diehard fan, AVOID! If you are looking for a professional concert, look elsewhere."
Very funny stuff

"This DVD is 3 hours of funny behind the scenes stuff, from 1997 -2004 including live performance clips, tour bus antics and yes I have seen it. Special guest appearances by Sugar Ray, Papa Roach, Spineshank, Alien Ant Farm and Matt Pinfield to name a few. The DVD has their entire music video collection, tracks from all 3 albums and new music only available on the DVD. The package is totally awesome. These guys are totally nuts :)"
Orgy Fans Anticipation

"For all of you Orgy fans out there (like myself), PRE-ORDER THIS DVD. I have read many articles and testimonies from the band members themselves about Trans Global Spectacle and it sounds like it is going to be amazing. This DVD will be a must have for any Orgy fan or anyone that likes rock music, period. Trans Global Spectacle is going to contain live concert footage from their CandyAss, Vapor Transmission and Punk Statik Paranoia Tours; Interviews; Behind-the-Scenes Footage; All of Orgy's Music Videos; Backstage and Tour Antics; and footage of the band from the first song they ever recored up to finishing Punk Statik Paranoia (Orgy's 3rd Album- if you don't have it, Order it when you Pre-Order Trans Global Spectacle). I am patiently waiting for August 23rd when the DVD comes out, but you can be assured that I can't wait until I get my hands on it. Head over to [...]and check out the message boards for updated info. on Orgy and the release of Trans Global Spectacle. Let's show Orgy our support and buy the hell out of this DVD!"

"F.W.I. I OWN THIS DVD. I gave this dvd 2 stars because i enjoy some of this dvd like when they are recording for their albums or some of the pranks in here. Like another reviewer said this dvd has little live footage and if they show it, a majority is just songs of of the albums instead of hearing the live song. I am disappointed of this dvd. This dvd also has orgy's 4 music videos, 4 pure tracks, some pictures of each member, and thank you's. You should stay away from this unless you want to be completely bored for about 3 hours. to make a long story short : this dvd sucks"
