Sound: This has to be Funeral for aa Friend at their very best! This DVD supports their albulm Casually Dressed And Deep In Conversation. The live music sounds identical as to the albulm music. Every band member pulls their weight and they come out with outstanding results. Kris and Darren rip the guitar up, gareth does his thing on bass, matt gets the crow of their feet and ryan plays and screams his heart out. An unmissable event! // 10

Content: The DVD has them playing live, it has their documentary, it has their videos and also has a timeline of their success. The live performance is at Islington Academy in London. They play a 10 song set which includes Rookie of the year, She drove me to daytime television, bullet theory, storytelling, red is the new black, kiss and make up, you want romance, the art of american football, juneau and escape artists never die. The music videos are there for Juneau, you want romance, juneau acoustic, bullet theory, 1045 amsterdam conversations, she drove me to daytime television, escape artists never die and this years most opened heartbreak. // 10

Production Quality: The quality is amazing, whatever they do, you can see and hear. There is multiple camera angles including close ups on all band membrs. // 10

Overall Impression: This is my favourite music DVD and should be bought by all funeral for a friend fans. If mir ne were to be stolen, I would definately buy it again. The DVD is cheap it's only $10 however I think we should be paying a lot more. My most favourite thing on the DVD is the clip of this years most opened heartbreak because it's a great song and has a great video to go with it. // 10

Sound: This DVD has a 10 song concert that they did for the "New Kings Of Rock'N'Roll" TV programme, and they have 10 of there best songs sang to a fairly small audience in london islington acadamy, I find it amazing how much stage energy they have, and it realli shows that they can give an amazing live performence. // 8

Content: There is alot of content on here 4 the price (12:99) it has 2h51m of live performences, all there videos, including an acoustic version of juno. They also have a very amusing documentary backstage thing of there gigs at the forum and in truro, where they admitted to not having drugs, but kinder eggs, and they have compotitions as to who can make the small toy inside the quickest. Very funny, and also proves that they arent serios and crying all the time like most people perception of emo bands. It's also got a discography and them sound checking on there song from there forthcoming album, Roses For Dead. // 10

Production Quality: In the live gig the camera moves every other second, which is quite annoying, but when you get used to it and in the fast songs it's atually quite cool. // 6

Overall Impression: I think this DVD is a exallent buy with alot of content that, unlike sum DVD's is re-watchable, also it shows FFAF's funny side, and stuff you woudn't normally know, this is defenetly a must-have for anyone who likes Funeral For A Friend. If it got lost I would defently buy it again, unless I lost it 10years after. // 10
