"For anyone out there who want to buy this DVD, make sure you take this into consideration. The biggest flaw of this DVD is that one of the "best artists/djs" of the period - 1998 - Beenie Man, is not really singing or djing his song. While he was singing and physically moving his mouth, the tune was at least 1.5-3 seconds both ahead of and aback or in delay of him. In addition, the performance by Monster Shock - with General B and Round Head - was not so great, while Norris Man did not have much to offer since he was an upcoming artist with only one song called "Persistence;" however, if you'd like to see a better performance by Norris Man, check out "Electrifyin' Sting 1997." Another artist who irritated me was Delly Ranks; his songs were all monotonous in terms of their subject, being addressed to only one topic: [homosexuals]. On the other hand, this DVD does have some good performances; for example, Zebra - who was one of the other top djs in 1998 - in my opinion got the best out of the crowd as well as the most forwards. Another decent performance, to say the least, was Tonto Metro and Devonte; however, their show was almost stolen away from them by Mega Banton. He was called up on stage to cut a song with the duo, but he ended up putting on his own show and got big forwards from the audience. Another artist who got some forward during a short performance was Junior Reid, with his song "World News." It is up to the viewers, who purchase this DVD to see for themselves and form their own conclusions as well as to try to enjoy the show; however, I am just another reggae fan expressing my opinions."
