Rage Against the Machine: Live At The Grand Olympic Auditorium [DVD]

Sound — 10
When someone listens to Tom Morello play guitar, they would assume that most of what he is playing is heavily computerized, technological bullsh*t. But when you watch this dvd and hear the sounds he makes live, it's safe to say that you will blown away, as I was. His ripping guitar with ever inventive and original sounds, accompanied by Zach De La Rocha's lyrics and Brad Wilk's drumming gives this concert the best sound I have ever heard.

Content — 10
This DVD is a full, live concert in LA and it also includes performances from the Democratic National Convention from the 2000 elections.

Production Quality — 10
The filming and production are outstanding. Great crowd shots/close-ups of the band.

Overall Impression — 10
The music on this DVD is better than that on the CDs which are of course the best ever made. When watching this DVD the first time I swear to God I almost had a seizure it was so incredible. The crowd atmosphere is stunning and the only thing that exceeds it is the music. Buy the thing right now and make sure you have a towel because you might have a mess of bodily excretions to clean up after viewing.
