Overall, I liked the “And All That Could Have Been” DVD, but I didn’t love it. I really would have liked the setlist for that tour to be a little more “Fragile”-heavy (I saw the Self-Destruct tour twice and had my fill of a lot of the older material), so watching the DVD it kind of bores me to hear “Head Like a Hole” for the millionth time.
The visuals were decent, but I almost would have preferred to have the crowd a little more involved. For some reason, I love to see the crowd in live videos because you get to see the energy bouncing back and forth between them and the band. Shows why shows really work sometimes.
I would have liked to have a few more special features (or at least ones that weren’t so damn hard to find), like maybe a track that shows only the backing videos with music or a commentary track with Trent himself. The commentary track could have been really fascinating (like a 2 hour long interview!), but instead they had a commentary for 3 tracks with the guy who did the visuals … why? Who cares?
Like I said, decent, but not stellar. I much preferred the Apoptygma Berzerk “APBL2000” DVD. Now I’m just waiting for the Depeche Mode “One Night in Paris” DVD --coming out in May!
