Billy Talent: Scandalous Travelers [DVD]

Sound — 8
The sound quality is great, as you'd expect from all DVDs. It's nice to hear some live performances from the band, but sadly, at times, they showed the band playing the song live, but simply played the actual track over it. A couple of acoustic and live perfomances that are definetly worth hearing. All hard rock, a little punkish.

Content — 8
It really shows alot on how the band tours, what they're like from the bus to the stage. If you're a fan of the Buzzcocks, they're in there a few times, since they use to do shows together. It doesn't really tell the story of how the band got together, just Ben (singer) telling someone on the phone that they got together in high school. Bios and pictures included on the DVD. Also it would have been nice if they included all there videos on the DVD, but sadly they're not.

Production Quality — 10
Quality's great, works fine, sound is in synch with video. Good enough case.

Overall Impression — 8
Billy Talent is definetly one of the most original bands out there today, and it was a good DVD, but not great. The best thing in my opinion would be the live performances and acoustics. Definetly worth getting for Billy Talent fans, or even punk-rock DVD collectors.
