I bought this album expecting a lot from what I had heard of this DVD and also with Slipknot being an ace band I thought it would be good. And it delivered it was ace from the quite frankly strange 1st disc to the videos and interviews of the 2nd disc. Slipknot is a metal/heavy metal band, but you probably knew that if you like Slipknot.

I mentioned what it was basically about above but I'll go into more detail. Disc 1. Wow, that's all I had to say afterwards. At first you think what's going on here, because it just keeps flicking between clips, but after a while it starts getting interesting. But don't watch it if you get offended easily, you will see people being sick, Corey walk on stage with nothing on holding up something and many many other things. Also you get to see some band practices whilst they are making the album in the Houdini mansion. Joeys drum solo is cool, the only way you know which way is down is because of the way his hair falls. All in all a very good disc. Disc 2. A more organised disc so to speak. You can watch the videos of Duality, Before I Forget, Vermilion, Vermillion pt. 2 and the Nameless (live). Then you have the live videos, The Nameless doesn't come under this because they realised it with 9.0 Live, anyway the live videos are (Sic), The Blister Exists, Eyeless, Duality, Vermillion, The Heretic Anthem, Pulse of the Maggots, Before I Forget and People=Shit. It also contains interviews with all 9 members without their masks on, which is pretty cool. The interviews give you an in-depth look into what Slipknot means to them. The only thing is the interview with Craig, you don't see his face properly, they blur it out, and it only lasts about 9 seconds. Another very good disc.
Production Quality — 10
The production quality is good. The way the change between clips is good, they sort of blur it the it fades and the next clip comes on, but sometimes they just change clip normally. You don't get "shakey cam" much, it happens sometimes but that is to be expected when you filming in a mosh pit. Very well done.
Overall Impression — 10
It's a really good DVD, a must for all Slipknot fans. Even if you didn't like disc 1 you would keep it for disc 2, that's my favourite disc, I just love the interviews, it helps you to get inside their head. I think it definitely is at the top of band DVDs. I've already said what I love about it the only bad thing is on disc one is can be slightly boring at times, what I mean by that is it films the crew too much, even though they are a main part of the bands live shows n stuff I would have liked to see more of the band. If it were lost or stolen I would buy it again defiantly.
