  • I got into Shinedown after the release of their second album “Us and Them.” This DVD was recorded from the final stop on their 2-year long tour that supported their first album. I have a hard time getting into new bands, my musical tastes are firmly cemented between the 1960s-1990s. Shinedown, however, has struck a chord with me because of a few reasons. Every member of the band is very talented, but singer Brent Smith is most impressive. The guy can belt it out and could (eventually) end up in the realm of Geoff Tate, Rob Halford, and Bruce Dickinson. The guy’s a true vocalist…Their lyrics are thought-provoking and their songs are catchy…Oh and judging by this DVD they’re a great Live act. This is far from the best concert DVD I’ve seen; After all, this DVD features only songs from the first album. But the guys have a polished live act and the camera work isn’t bad. It’s clear the crowd there was really digging the show. I’m not going to bother including the set list, because it’s probably on here somewhere. The bonus features are interesting (two music videos; Simple Man & .45) and a Bonus Documentary, which takes a look at the band…Surprisingly, they all seem like nice genuine dudes who really love their fans. I don’t know if I’d buy this DVD (I got lucky and found a place that had it to rent), but I will definitely buy the next DVD they put out (if they ever do). Hardcore fans of Shinedown will like it a lot more than just casual fans and if you’re looking for material from the 2nd CD, you’ll be very disappointed.

    GRADE: B+
