With electronic and, in particular, dance-oriented, music becoming more prevalent in the media, TV, film, games, etc. this DVD will provide an inspiring story of one of the greatest creative minds who has done it all and continues to innovate as the global network evolves into expansive areas of digital entertainment and new media. Oakenfold will no doubt continue to be a force that is at the leading edge of that evolution.
The documentary is better if you are into that, but there is a lot of chest-thumping here that takes away from the sincerity of an artist. And its not enough to take away from the first half of the dvd, we don't even get a music video (or the making of one as was done with Faster Kill Pussycat).
If you must really have the long documentary then go for it, but get the
Greatest Hits and Remixes first before you put your money down on this.
