Bush: 1994//1999 [DVD]

Sound — 8
The sound is really cool and pretty good for the most part. The live section of the program has a small flaw because "Glycerine" has the guitar not high enough so you can't hear it really well but that's alright it was still a good performance. The styles went from grunge to rock. The sound and music was really cool. Live performances can only be so good though.

Content — 10
The content is pretty neat to have. It has 10 music videos from the band's catalogue. It isn't all their videos but most of them. This DVD only contains videos from their first 3 albums: 16 Stone 1994, Razorblade Suitcase 1996, The Science of Things 1999. The band stayed pretty busy as you can tell. This DVD does not contain anything from the 2001 album Golden State. It has all the music videos from '16 Stone' which are listed in the order the videos were released: "Everything Zen", "Little Things", "Comedown", "Glycerine", "Machinehead". Then it contains only 2 of 6 videos from 'Razorblade Suitcase' which are the first 2 videos that they realeased: "Swallowed", "Greedy Fly". They then feature all 3 videos that came off of 'The Science of Things' which are not in chronological listing on the DVD: "Warm Machine", "The Chemicals Between Us", "Letting The Cables Sleep". The band produced 14 music videos from their first 3 albums and 10 of them are featured on this DVD. The DVD also features a excellent concert from Woodstock '99. It is the full concert from Woodstock also the setlist in order is: "Machinehead", "Greedy Fly", "Warm Machine", "Everything Zen", "The Chemicals Between Us", "Glycerine", "Swallowed", "The One I Love", "Little Things". So it has most of their music videos and then a full concert from Woodstock '99. It's a total package just about considering the 4 music videos that are missing from the collection. I personally was taken with the Woodstock performance. I am a little dissapointed with the 4 missing videos. I'm not sure why they weren't included because of space or what. The videos that are missing are: "Cold Contagious", "Personal Holloway", "Bonedriven", "Mouth". The setlist at Woodstock wasn't so great but the performance was great. I wish they would've played "Comedown" and "Alien". The R. E. M. cover of "The One I Love" was really good also. The extras that is included are: A in depth coverage about 'The Science of Things' album which is the making process and a look at the studio session ect. really neat, the making of "The Chemicals Between Us" video, and a very very cool excepted video from "Alleys and Motorways" which is parts of the home video from 1997 they released. No hidden tracks, the DVD contains exactly what I listed. I was satisfied.

Production Quality — 10
The quaility is well done, the videos are a little unique for my taste but I like them overall. "The Chemicals Between Us" video has a lot of special effects in it. That's probably the coolest video to watch. Like I said before, on "Glycerine" the guitar was too low, also the mic went out once, but other then that it was a great great quaility concert. I think they intended that the guitar be low or maybe the crowd was too loud? I don't know for sure. Theie were countless people there though. Truly amazing beyond anyone's imagination.

Overall Impression — 8
THe DVD captures Bush almost completely from 1994 from 1999. If it had the 4 non-included videos it would be a complete Bush DVD all the way around. The 4 missing videos are dissapointing but it was a good buy. I love this DVD. I would like an complete DVD that contains the last album and more extras and every video. Bush as of now have done 17 videos including Gavin Rossdale's "Adrenaline" for the XXX soundtrack. The best things on this DVD is the "Alleys And Motorways" excerpts. The full Woodstock performance was also great. I loved everything except the fact the 4 videos are missing. If I lost it I would definatley buy it again. This would only be for grunge era fans. If you like Collective Soul, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Green Day, Oasis then this band and DVD is for you.
