I love these videos. Too bad MTV doesn’t show videos anymore. Type O fans out there should also check out their other DVD Nosferatu. They did the entire soundtrack (new stuff) for the silent version of this horror movie – don’t think the tracks are available elsewhere. Kind of wierd to watch a horror movie and listen to O-, but close your eyes and it’s like you’re listening to their long lost album! Can’t wait to catch these guys in concert.

If you are a Type O Negative fan buy this DVD. If not buy it anyway. Type O Negative is so damn funny in this video. You get all the videos they have made, including “Everything Dies”. But why this stands apart from the VHS is because it has commentary by the Drab Four (the band) on the entire DVD. BUY IT.
The After Dark DVD does provide some excellent insight into the band and it does include all of their videos up to the time when this DVD was made. However, I feel like there should have been some more live footage of the band included. The chatting that occurs between each video is a lot of fun to watch the first time but it gets old with subsequent viewings. Same with the band’s commentary. Instead of being so “chatty”, this DVD could have used 30-40 minutes of live… TON music. One more problem with the disk that might drive you crazy is the fact that there is no chapter selection feature. If you want to watch just a few of the videos and not all the talking, you have to fast forward to them from the beginning of the disk everytime… I’m giving this one 3 stars only because I like the band so much. I hope that as they release future DVD’s, TON will hire a more competent DVD engineering team.
what you cant get from the video version of after dark comes in the DVD version. the commentary is…well, funny (seems like a whole lotta inside jokes. ill admit to being lost during some parts)and shows the boys being themselves. parts of the commentary, for some reason, are bleeped out (who knows why, i certainly dont) the dvd includes a photo section(not never before seen), band bios (which are also on the website–typeonegative.net) and two tracks that are amazing and will be released on the “least worst of” album. it’s great stuff. well worth the money. ) (side note–if you ever wanted to know what the band really thinks of the videos,etc, this is definatly for you. lotsa ranting and raving durring the commentary)
The movie is all the band members (mostly josh) walking around with a microphone talking to people at there concerts, to other bands and amongst themselves. That is kinda the intermission to there videos. Which consist of Black #1, Christina Woman(MTV version), Love You to Death, Christian Woman(long version), My Girlfriends Girlfriend, and Cinimon Girl. For most of the videos a few of the band members give there opinion on what they think the song is about. On each intermision there is one main person talking to the camera Peter is first up and is talking to some reporter asking questions about basicaly everything and nothing…. and thats about all with him. Next up is Jonny, he’s talking about his hobbies and his thoughts on Black #1 thats about all. Next up is previous drummer Sal, that little section is short and sweet he says a few things and thats the end of him. Then Josh is going around with a mic and a little clip of him and Phill Ensalmo on Euro MTV (and youll be really suprised what happens on that little segment). Last but not least Kenny is at home with his wife and child having a little fun. Then a few moments with Josh and his thoughts and its the end. It sound really short but its really a good length video.
