Sound: After making "The Best of..." greatest hits album, Siouxsie and the Banshees decided to tour to support the album. However instead playing hit after hit like most other bands, they decided to play some of their best non-hits. It was their first tour in seven year hence the title. The line-up includes the three main members Siouxsie, Budgie, and Steven Severin, plus Knox Chandler on guitar. // 9

Content: They made a compact disc too but it doesn't contain all the songs the dvd does. Visually, the band is great. Sound Siouxsie can't hit all the notes she once did. She sounds better with songs like "Land's End" and "I Could be Again" than the hits like "Cities in Dust" and "Happy House". I really like the song list. It is cool to see a band whom has been around for sometime to play some songs that would completely shock fans to hear. The extras are kinda of neat. I really like "Backstage Budgie". You can tell how happy he was to tour again. It is a really cool extra feature. // 8

Production Quality: Really there is nothing special about the quality production. The DVD sounds better than the compact disc version which has some weird feedback on some songs which is annoying. The DVD is WAY better than the disc. Sometimes it gets a little dark on some songs and it is hard to see what is going on but I guess since this is the Banshees darkness is required. // 8

Overall Impression: I would say the most impressive thing about the disc is the song selection. I mean "Metal Postcard", "Red Light", and "Land's End" are on here which is a real treat for fans. I love that they did those songs. I hate that Siouxsie's voice is flat at times. They could have done "Israel" too but oh well. If I lost this DVD I would so buy it again. // 8
