Sound: The sound is very clear, whether it be the band members speaking, the band playing live, or recording the album it sounded amazing. The story is the creation of the album, and the different things each band member brings to the table. They show you the recording process and how many takes before they get it to sound like it does on the record. // 10

Content: This is a making of the album DVD. It gives some insight of what goes into making an album and what the band went through during the recording process. It does show some live scenes, but not enough to really comment on it. The DVD also contains a music video for their song Hair, which is interesting, but isn't nearly as good as the main feature which runs at approximately thirty-five minutes. It's also pretty inspirational. Ace Enders created the band from nothing, he is completely self taught and started a band. It goes to show that anyone can start a band if they really try hard enough. // 10

Production Quality: The production isn't horrible, but it isn't great either. It appears to be filmed with low-end video camera, with intentional jumps and skips during interviews as if they were trying to cut out what some band members say, but other than that there's nothing really noticeable. It's just a short documentary that doesn't really have any high quality editing and or technology behind it. // 9

Overall Impression: This is the first making of DVD I've seen. My first impressions was how much work that went into the actual album was amazing. It gave me a lot of insight about how an album is made. It's a great supplement to the actual 3 disc set it comes with. I love how it's informal, but I hate how it cuts words from the band members, If it were lost or stolen I would probably get again, because it's interesting to watch every now and then. It's a great 3 disc album that comes with 1 DVD for the price of 1 CD, it's a great buy if you enjoy the band. // 10
