Sound: This Los Angeles four-piece has been described as many things: pop, indie, lo-fi, this DVD as well as their latest Album demonstrates that they are just a really good rock band. The performances sound amazingly well, very expressive with a lot of energy. The dual guitar assault of Darren Robinson and Alex Greenwald on The Meantime is a highpoint of the DVD, Jeff Conrads' drumming provides a driving force for the band, while the inventive and melodic bass-work of Sam Farrar shines throughout the performances. // 10

Overall Impression: My overall impression of the DVD is that it captured the band at it's best, putting on great live performances. The special features are also great, giving the viewer a lot of insight into what it is like to go on tour with Phantom Planet and also how much they truly appreciate their fans. If this DVD were lost or stolen I would definately get it again. // 10
