AC/DC: Family Jewels [DVD]

Sound — 10
As we all know AC/DC are the godfathers of metal. Thier sound needs no introduction from Malcom's thundering power chords to Angus' scratchy riffs and screeching solos packing a wicked tone that can only come from custom created pedals and several powerful Marshall cabinets. So genuinely AC/DC's live shows are even better than recordings and this dvd brings it all to you in crisp high definition sound from the best view in the house, the cameras eye.

Content — 8
Not much of a menu and no special features at all but with all the juicy footage you could ask of concerts from bon scott through the modern stuff and even the full version of AC/DC's short film Fly On The Wall from the '80s you cant really complain. After all what did you expect? It's just concert footage and all the special features can be found in the included 24 page color booklet written by David Frickle which covers the history of ac dc and explains most of the clips in detail.

Production Quality — 8
The menu is very nice loking and has an animation of the Famiy Jewels swinging back and forth with a neat little intro to each clip, but this is mostly just the history of AC/DC caught on tape, so there isn't really much need for special effects.

Overall Impression — 10
For the hardcore AC/DC fan this DVD is an absolute essential and with 2 discs and 40 songs including live television performances, music videos, even all the footage of bon scott and live concerts. If your not willing to dish out for $14 for this then don't call yourself an AC/DC fan.
