Audioslave: Live In Cuba [DVD]

Sound — 10
Audioslave definitly nailed this concert. They played Soundgarden, Rage Against The Machine, and of course, Audioslave tracks. The drummer was perfect throught every song, and sounded perfect. Brad, the bassist, did a great job, and didn't mess up. Chris, the singer, did an alright job, but he isn't anything special live, I think he could have done better. And the best part, Tom Morello. Tom Morello, the guitarist, did an amazing job, hitting every riff and every solo. He handled the Soundgarden song "Spoonman" perfectly. Everything you hear in the studio albums, you hear in the show.

The DVD is just straight up Rock, it kicks ass. The camera views were nice, they always switched to when a certain band member was doing a good part, as in a Morello solo, a drum intro, and parts by Brad and Chris. Nothing to complain about.

Overall Impression — 10
If your a fan of Audioslave, Rage, or even Soundgarden, you should check it out. It's a definite buy. It is one of the only few live shows that is as good, if not better, than the studio albums. I loved the feeling of the DVD, and the documentary, which if you watch before the actual show, it feels like your going through the experience with the band. It's amazing. If lost or stolen, I wouldn't hesitate to pick it up again.

    good dvd..... i knew Tom Morello was an amazing guitarist from Rage and Audioslave songs but when i watched this dvd, especially Bulls on Parade instremental, Tom goes insane on the guitar. i was like Holt Shit... so yea i reccommend this dvd.
    Just a correction for TJM2482, Brad isn't the bassist, Tim is. Brad's the drummer, although each review helped me...thank you!
    Perpetual Burn
    TJM2482? Did u watch all of the dvd? 16. I Am The Highway (done by only Chris Cornell)...the band comes in later...perhaps you don't have any patience...
