When this was released I saw some very negative press about it and as I watched I wondered what the reasoning actually was. It also made me wonder what one actually expected from a DVD that features Zakk Wylde and his band the Black Label Society. With the exception of the bonus features, this DVD is strictly concert performance stuff. Of course there are some great close-ups and angles and especially ones while Zakk is soloing. For me this delivered to the expectations I had, this is basic Heavy Metal with great guitar work. Just what we all know will come from Zakk after all his years performing with Ozzy. There was also a lot of beer consumption by Zakk throughout the show. I lost count after 5. This concert contains all the songs you expect to find on such a DVD by Zakk. Another highlight is watching Bassist Robert Trujillio (now of Metallica) crunch along side of Zakk. He really is one of the better bassists in Metal music and it shows.

Bonus Features: This was some good and some bad to me. Maybe this caters for the absolute fan more than the casual listener/viewer. Among them: There is brief concert piece from Tokyo which along with the Star-Spangled Banner is cool. There is a video for “Stillborn” and a cute little sing along with Zakk and his Daughter Rae Rae (it’s just too cute for words and really shows a different side of Zakk). There are photos, a discography and a guitar lesson. The stuff I felt could have been dropped was all the drunken bantering which I guess was at the tail end of a gig. A few minutes is fine but this lasted a little too long for me and become not funny.

More for the diehards over all but still a solid concert to watch for fans who might not easily get to see the band perform at either Ozzfest or solo.
