Sound: The Pumpkins' sound is amazing. The DVD starts off with the grunge and psychadelic sound of Gish, then moves along to the layered guitar of Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie, followed by the much more mellow, sort of gothic Adore, which is followed by the again heavy guitar of Machina. The DVD follows the evolution of the Pumpkins sound, from the grunge, punk and phsychadelic to the gothic and soft. // 10

Overall Impression: My favourite clips off this DVD are Today, Bullet with Butterfly Wings, Zero, Thirty-Three and Stand Inside Your Love. What this dvd lacks however, is any behind the scenes footage, which I would have loved, because the commentaries, though insightful, don't quite cut it for me. If it were stolen or lost I would definately buy it again. It's absolutely worth buying, and it's a must-have for every Pumpkin fanatic. // 9
