Editorial Reviews

2008 two disc (CD + DVD) release Explicit Version. The legend that is Twisted Sister return with their new live CD/DVD recorded at London's Astoria Theatre on a very hot summer night in 2004. The critics hailed Twisted Sister's performance as one of their greatest ever. If you're an S.M.F. and have wondered what Twisted Sister thought about any of their live shows throughout their 35 year history, you should know this: while certain band members remember certain shows, and relate tales of particular performances as being their favorite, rarely does the band universally agree that any particular show is about as good as it gets. Each band member considered this show to be amongst the most special of their career. This concert was filmed and kept in a vault for the past four years. When the band had the opportunity to look at the footage, it brought back the heat, passion, intensity and audience participation that was a level far above all expectations. We look forward in sharing this magical performance with all of you! DR2 Records.

Twisted Sister is another one of those bands you either love em' or hate em'. I got into Twisted Sister via Motorhead, Fast Eddie Clark produced their first album, "Under The Blade". I still have a love for them just because of that, though I haven't liked everything they have done. This however, Live at the Astoria, is a must have. They are firing on all six and then some. It's Twisted Sister back in form and having fun and doing what they do best, Rock The Free World. If you are thinking about getting this, do not hesitate, added it to your basket and wait in anticipation, you won't be a sorry. Become a SMF like the rest of us, it's a beautiful place to be.

This cd Is Excellant And Amazing And I Watch This Dvd At Least 5 Times A Month And Listen To The Music Cd As Well This Is One Of My Favorite 80's Heavy Metal Groups I Love Twisted Sister So Much It's Hard To Not Watch Them On The Dvd Live On Stage And Also Hard Not To Listen To Thier Music Plus When I Watch The Dvd In Between They Talk About How They Toward And Broke Up And Got Back Together And Much More They Talk About Either On This Dvd Or Other Dvds I Have By them And Their Very Interesting To Watch And Listen To And I Wish That They Were Still Touring Because I Seen This Group 25 years Ago
At The New Haven Coliseum That No Longer Exist Now And I Would Like To See Them Perform Again But It Looks Like I Can't So I Love Watching Them On Tv But It's Not Ever The Same As Actually Being There In Person.

I'm rediscovering Twisted Sister after recently purchasing a USB turntable. After listening to all of their studio albums, I purchased this 2008 live CD+DVD set; I'm glad I did. This set is fantastic. All of the best songs are here from the first 4 albums Sister sounds energized and the sound quality is perfect for Twisted Sister (loud, gritty, and in your face.) And what a deal, for about $9, you get a CD of the concert and a DVD of the same concert. Both are excellent. The DVD is well done in that it is not "over produced" with camera shots that change every 2 seconds (like you'll see on many concert dvds (see Iron Maiden's recent live dvds.)) A perfect production for Twisted Sister. I gave it 4 starts only because of the F bombs prevent me from being able to play it with the kids in the house or in the car. Otherwise, it is a 5 star set all day long. Now if only they can be convinced to create another studio album and take the show on the road.

One note, you may want to make sure the kids are out of the room when playing the CD or DVD as Dee frequently throws out the S and F bombs.

Good stuff and all the hits, which is a staple of a TS setlist these days. Found the DVD to be crisp and clear on my TV. I don't have an elaborate set-up so this worked and it worked well. The CD version is good for the headset while in work, on a walk, the gym, etc. Nice, well balanced audio. It's the type of CD that brings back floods of good memories and te band goes through it all beautifully. Were there touch-ups in the studio? Probably. The fact remains the band sounds in top form, Dee especially.

Nice to see AJ behind the kit. Miss you and love you, brother.

And then, there's the DVD which has the same tracks on it but is way longer. The DVD leaves in the stage rants which for us old school TS fans just never seem to get old. You'll get the story of Atlantic Records, the near break-up if the UK tour crapped out, something about b**w jobs from a cross dresser towards the end, and more. Definitely keep the kids in the next room.

Want some light hearted, but quality entertainment? Get this and immerse yourself in it. If you have the capabilities, make a DVD audio rip, put that in the car for a long drive and love every second of it.

Full length concert DVD and CD from their reunion tour. The content is excellent! There may be a few songs I would have like to see added but most of the good ones are there. The only thing that would have made this combo pack better for me would have been a 16:9 ratio for the DVD and for the CD to match the DVD exactly (the CD edits out the monologue between tracks). Overall, I am very pleased with it and it is well worth the price!

Twisted Sister live? Yeah baby ! The star of this package is the DVD not the cd. Live at The Astoria showcases the band as they always were. Explosive, energetic, loud, lewd, and metal. For anyone who loved the band and especially never got to see them live this DVD is a must to see what Sister really was all about.

The original Twisted lineup had'nt been together in years, they hadnt even talked in years following one of the most bitter breakups in music history. There is alot to dwell into here but I wont. Ill just say that after years apart the band gets back together and starts touring again and are just as good as ever if not better. The attitude is still there and it explodes on this DVD.

Of course in typical TS fashion it starts off with the song What You Dont Know ( Sure Can Hurt You) and I cant think of a song in any bands repitore that was better written for jump starting a concert. From there the set list continues with some of the bands best hits primarily from the two albums You Cant Stop Rock N Roll, and Under The Blade and of course it includes I Wanna Rock, and Were Not Gonna Take It. The two songs that catapulted the band into world recognition especially in the US with its comedic MTV videos.

Without a doubt if you dont really know TS outside of the MTV hit songs you are missing out on one of the hardest metal bands of the time and this is the DVD that shows TS for what they always have been. I guess you either love it or hate it depending on your taste. TS didnt care if you hated them, they played for those who loved em.
