Inevitably it's a mixed bag. Only a few of the videos are truly memorable, and some tracks are prone to the redundant funk that covers much of electronica's landscape. Still, the highlights are atmospheric, and the lows are never really low. The Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim take top honors with tracks 1 and 2, and for sheer visceral pulse you've got Goldie, Crystal Method, and the Prodigy to kick your brains out with shock-sights and violence. That's all balanced out by the calmer tracks, notably the Indian groove of Talvin Singh. Dieselboy's video is a prime example of abstract audiovisual symbiosis, while Sly & Robbie's "Superthruster" is a treat for fans of sci-fi anime. It's a pity the directors aren't credited on screen, but that's a minor quibble. Kick back, hit Play All, and prepare to be dazzled. --Jeff Shannon

I give this 4 stars because of my personal tastes. Eventhough I think Fat boy slim, Chemical brothers, Crystal method, and Prodigy are great on the DVD. I think their videos on this DVD are for a mainstream purpose since they target the average listners. This dvd would have taken a step further if it was to have Aphex Twin, Bjork, Portishead ect. But that is just me, i'm just a snob and going for that Indie/Break Through videos mentality.
Do buy this dvd or just stay up around 2 am hope MTV plays electronic music.
The musical content is interestingly eclectic. From "Fat Boy Slim" to "Diesel Boy" you can see a fairly decent cross section of the electronic music scene at large. Don't expect to be blown away, it is not epic making, but it is well worth having if you want to add something different to your collection.
Ever since I got me DVD player I have looked for ways to maximize its potential. DVD is definitely where the future is going, there is little doubt of that, but how can one expand the DVD experience? Well, these music videos seem to be an unlikely answer but it works well. The high fidelity digital output sure does make the videos fun to watch and a new way to disturb the neighbors. If you want to try something really wild you can put this DVD on when entertaining for some light background visual and audio. At my last party it was an interesting conversation piece.
But what do I know? Check it out for yourself and make your own determination of its value. :)

this dvd was fresh while maintaining a snizzle of flinkteringness. i wouldn't call it overtly blanglerful, but i would advise taking it with a jug of turpentine.Published on February 23, 2004
