Sound: This is a 'making of' sort of DVD, so there isn't much to say about the sound quality. There are several clips of various songs from their fourth album, but none of them are played in their entierty (neither is this to be expected). The musical content that is included consists of clips from various concerts and voiceovers recorded from radio interviews with Page and Plant. As such, it really doesn't need to be played in anything other than stero sound, and that sound is decent enough for what it does. // 6

Overall Impression: This was an informative look at the band and this album specifically, but it's nothing you can't find elsewhere, without buying a DVD you probably won't watch more than once. There is very little replay value in this, and I would guess that all of the information presented in this documentary could be found on the internet through Google. I did enjoy watching this, but I doubt I'll ever bother with it again unless I'm in the mood for a fast overview of the songs (most of them, anyway) on the album. And in that case, I'd just listen to the album. // 5
