1.0 out of 5 stars AVOID (opensource, opensource, opensource) June 12, 2009
By Alaric
Format:Audio CD
The interview disc features content that is already all over the internet: on youtube, in transcript ect. You'll be spared the time to rip it from wherever, but that is all you'll have paid for. It runs in reverse order chronologically -Bedlam to Deloused.

The ATDI disc is a read biographical report, nothing special and not quite garbage.

This reviewer finds it nice to have these things on a hard copy and in good quality (even if the known video corresponding to some of them is absent), but this set will likely enrage anyone coming to it with higher expectations.

2.0 out of 5 stars CD of Interviews September 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As noted this is a compilation of interviews. It is pretty interesting but it is a CD worth of interviews and commentary. One reviewer is correct about the open source, at least for a portion that I recognized. I did buy this expecting music to be thrown in it, but it was my fault for not reading the description. I do think these guys are one of the best musicans out there on many levels. That said this CD is something I would of prefered to have borrowed from a library, and is not something I am going to play reguraly or possibly even rarely.
