For those not in the know, Boston-based band Powerman 5000 hit it big by blending science fiction with industrial/heavy metal (think Rush's storytelling with Rammstein's aesthetics) into a type of silly hybrid that has fueled many a mosh pit around the world. They wear goofy, futuristic costumes, play simplistic riffs, and are led by a Jim Jarmusch look-alike (and, with his monotone delivery, sound-alike), who calls himself Spider One. If this was all tongue-in-cheek, it could be fun. However after watching Backstage and Beyond the Infinite, you get the sense that these guys somehow think what they do is important. Yes, you get plenty of live material, as well as videos like "Nobody's Real," but in the backstage footage, you see the band mocking everyone around them, including their fans. If you were hoping to see interviews with the band, or get some idea of their musical approach, this DVD will certainly disappoint you. And if you're a fan who wants to see what the band really thinks of you, get ready to be laughed at. --Dave McCoy

An incredible DVD, I loved every second of it. I'm a huge Powerman fan, but I think even if I wasn't I still could have enjoyed it. The way the music video's, fan clips, interviews, and live performances rolled smoothly together in a good arrangement was refreshing.
The "Tonight the Fans Revolt!" sections were an interesting addition. Most bands will thank there fans verbally or in writing, but I've seen very few give there fans an oppertunity like this one, to be on the bands DVD. The selections were interesting (I got a kick out of the one who set their room on fire), and something worth commending, because if your reading this reveiw, you already knew the music selections would be great.

This has got to be one of the very best Videos I've ever experienced. Put together with care and crazy creative cooking, it blasts off to nowhere which is everywhere which is Powerman 5000! The treatment of the fans is appreciative and respectful...while having great fun and keeping with the spirit of the band. Multi-talented, this video showcases every member. The editing is superb and the pace is high! I will watch this into eternity!!!! Thank you Powerman and friends!!! (The live sequences are a special treat. YUM.)

This dvd is good for anyone who likes PM5K. ... It's got concert footage, fan created footage, music video's and behind some of there newer video's. While most of it doen't make sense, it's mainly put together quickly and to make a quick buck I feel. It's so short also, but I like PM5K so I can't say anything is wrong with it.
