Sound: Overall, the sound was great on this DVD. Axl Rose growled out every word in the same hard rock scream we've all come to love (or hate). Slash's guitars were phenomenal for a live concert. Everything about the sound was awesome, and it almost put you in the stadium watching it. // 10

Content: This is a live concert from after the beginning of the demise of the band. Without Izzy Stradlin' and Steven Adler, the performance just seems to feel a little incomplete. Gilby Clark and Matt Sorum are great musicians nonetheless, but they just didn't complete the rhythm session like on AFD. The set included "The Godfather Theme", "Sweet Child O' Mine", "Paradise City", "So Fine", "Move To The City", "Knockin' On Heaven's Door", "Rocket Queen", and a whole bunch of assorted solos and Axl Rose mini-skits. This was only the second part of the DVD set, so many hits were not on it. There are no extra features, but overall the content was good for a live concert DVD. // 8

Production Quality: There isn't much to describe here. The sound can be a little shady and unclear at times, while at others, it can be great. It does offer a wide range of shots on every band member, including Dizzy Reed and the backup singer girls, which was excellent. // 10

Overall Impression: I only bought it because Spinal Tap and it had a deal at HMV 2 for $20 or something like that. I would not buy it again if it was lost, but its allright to watch every now and then. The best part about it is that it is "Guns N' Roses." // 8
