J'ai vu le show de Godsmack deux fois quand Metallica sont venu à Montréal et Québec. Je connaissais pas beaucoup Godsmack, cependant ce fu une decouverte adsolument fantastique. Ils ont donnés un show ecoeurant et je me suis procuré le DVD pour me rememorer les chansons et le DVD est aussi fou que le show. Le chanteur a un charisme remarquable et le group sonne comme une tonne de briques. Sans contredit la chansons qui est le plus tripante à mon envie c'est "Straight out of Line", elle nous fais planner. C'est un très bon achat et un excellent investissement!!!

alright, let me start by saying that I saw godsmack when they opened up for metallica a few days ago in ottawa, and after seeing them live, i immediatly went out and bought this dvd. They put on such an awesome show, and this is well portrayed in "Changes." Sully Erna's stage presence is unlike any other, wicked guitar, but the drumming is the best part. Sully plays the drums too, and so he and their regular drummer, shannon larkin, each sit behind a drum kit, and have a 'Drumoff'. Being a drummer myself, i can tell you that it's the best part of the performance. For the price that they're charging, it's practically a STEAL!!!
I have just a few critique's, but in no way does this mean the dvd isn't worth buying. BUY IT REGARDLESS!!!!
1. Although the documentary footage is really cool to see, it should have been all played together in a seperate option from the concert. By this, i mean that in between songs during the concert, they inserted small 5 minute clips of godsmack documentary footage, then they cut back to the concert. This gets a bit annoying, but still wicked cool none the less.
2. Serenity wasn't the greatest performance ever, it was played a little too fast, and there was no background drumming.....but it was still really cool to see.
Once again, regardless of a few minor critiques, this dvd is a steal for the price.....buy it right now if you haven't already. ROCK ON!!!!! GODSMACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This review is based on first impression and about 100 and counting afterwards... I'm not getting into detail song after song, 'cause there all incredibly explosive. Absolutely, without a doubt, Godsmack is the most intensely talented rock band around. The "battle of the drums" was one of it's kind and nothing short of spectacular. Turn your dial waaaaaaay, waaaaaaay up for that part - you won't be disappointed. When I watched the battle of the drums between Sully and Shannon for the first time (and I needless to say, I still continue to), my jaw dropped to the floor, THEY'RE THAT AMAZING!!! Makes you feel that need/desire to go out and buy yourself a set of drums and aspire to be what they are - pure greatness. You've just gotta pump it up! The DTS sound with the dial cranked is almost if you were there (and only almost because you're physically not). Stick your ear in the center channel when Sully's not singing and you'll hear only the bass quitar, it's that precise. The sub just pounds! Words cannot describe how powerful this DVD performance is. Get it!!! Go on - what are you waiting for!

A great, informative, and fun DVD! June 28 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Hi. Just for the record, I have not been a godsmack fan for very long, and only have 2 of their albums, but I decided to pick up this dvd before becoming more familiar with the rest of their material. And, to tell you the truth, this dvd can be a pleasurable experience for people like me who dont even have all of their cd's, or for others who are like diehard fans, and have been to every show, and have everything little thing this band puts out.

To start things off, the dvd is about 1 hour and 40 minutes of well mixed documentary material, and interviews, alongside with one of their live shows in Pennsylvania. The interviews really give you an inside view of what the Godsmack, or any other band, is like on the road, and how fame and a band has changed their lives. I found each band member to have a certain level of maturity and education, and was very impressed at the fact that they did not crowd up this dvd with women and drugs, and stuff like that. I know some other bands who do so, and it starts to become a pain watching something that isn't very informative, or proves that the band has no class.

All of the live songs are amazing, and what surprised me is that they sound just like that recording. Many bands, as you may well know, are studio musicians, but nooooo...not Godsmack. Sully has an okay voice, but at last he doesnt hide behind studio effects, and stuff like that. Believe me, you wont be dissapointed AT ALL.

Unfortunately, Sully likes to cuss a lot, and although it's probably nothing you guys havent heard before, it kind of makes you go, "Oh he's so cool and mature and stuff, and I want to grow up to be in a band like his" and then all of a sudden he comes out saying, "man i wish they would just f***ing do the f***ing dvd for the f***ing love of christ. Jesus, what the f*** can'ta they f***ing do this s**t!?" and then it kind of puts you down. But oh well, that doesnt change the fact one bit that they are an exceptionally mature band, and and inspired to be creative, original, and to work hard at what they do.

There is a drum solo, and Sully, who sings and plays guitar in the band, plays drums, and bongos, and congos and sweet tribal intruments like that. Drums were his original instrument, and he's been playing for many years. Just getting to see him play his best with his other drummer, Shannon , is an amazing sight, and what really blows my mind is that fact that they only follow a routine for the song up to a certain point. All of the drum fills that they do are made up on the spot, and could be differnt every night they play it! It was amazing, and in my opinion, this 5-minute medley is worth the price of the dvd itself.

So, as you can see, this dvd will not only fascinate you to no end, but it will also keep you WELL entertained. After watching this dvd, I had nothing but respect for these guys, and I can't wait to go to one of their real live shows someday.

Lastly, the dvd comes equipped with 5.1 dolby digital surround sound capabilities, so you can get a full "concert experience" in you own living room. There is also a picture gallery, which isn't much, but hey, it sounds cool, and makes people want to buy it. Of course, the film itself is well worth the price of this dvd, whether it's 17 bucks on amazon, or 20 bucks at frys or whatever. You wont be dissapointed, and I guarentee it.

Thank you for reading my loooooong review, I hope you were able to stay awake in the process.

Confirmation that Godsmack rules Nov. 1 2004
By Bad Mo-Fo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This DVD only confirms my assumptions about Godsmack's dedication to their music and to their fans, and to the delivery of absolute quality in everything they do.

First of all, the DVD itself is a gem. The quality of the artwork of the case contents, as well as the camera work, the content editing and production, and the Circle Surround audio makes playback truly amazing, on almost any home sound system.

As a heavy metal and rock enthusiast, and as a member of the band's generation, Godsmack has struck a chord with me. This is not your stereotypical thrash-happy, metal band. Changes shows that Godsmack is truly an exceptionally talented hard rock band who exhibit superior creativity, intelligence, commitment to quality, and an extraordinary work ethic. They are living proof that their recipe for success works, and frankly, it's inspiring. Show this to your teenage kids as a prime example of the rewards for living core values.

Furthermore, Changes doesn't insult the viewers' intelligence with overindulgence in wine and women. On the contrary, it portrays a realistic side of the band that includes perspectives about their families and the kind of dedication that's needed to survive on the road for 10 months straight.

In addition, it's refreshing to see a band get along so well, having so much respect for one another and for the band as a whole. Each member is among the best in the business, and being able to keep their individual pride in check for the good of the band is a testament in itself.

Finally, the music is just above and beyond any of my expectations from a live performance. Here's where the true quality of Godsmack becomes apparent. The band doesn't take shortcuts or play out of tune, or improvise in any of the numbers. Instead, they cover the full range and intensity they deliver on their studio releases. Visually, their stage performance and effects are a stunning compliment to their music. And yes, I'll concur that the tandem drum session is worth the price of the DVD alone.

Godsmack has rewarded its fans in a big way with this release. But even if you're not a fan, one can't help but appreciate the craftsmanship of the band and the fine product they've created.

Outstanding Live DVD and Documentary Dec 18 2004
By James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
If you like Godsmack, owning this DVD is mandatory. The sound and video quality are top notch as is the band's live performance. The "behind the scenes" footage is pretty interesting. However, it would be nice if you could watch all the songs straight through without the documentary clips that are shown between tunes. I found one thing a little distracting in the concert footage. On some of the songs when Sully is not playing rhythm guitar (i.e., Tony is the only one playing guitar), you can hear a second guitar track. My guess is that these tracks were added in post-production to thicken the sound and make the songs sound more like the album. I saw Godsmack live a few weeks ago (opening for Metallica) and I didn't notice any phantom guitar during Godsmack's set. So I doubt that there was actually another guy playing guitar but hidden backstage during the performances on the DVD. Overall, this is a great DVD and it captures the power of Godsmack's stage show extremely well.

The DL on Godsmack Sept. 29 2004
By LJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
As they say themselves in the documentary, "They sold their souls for rock 'n roll". Overall, this is an amazing DVD that really shows their fans their true selves, which is basically one laugh after the other. These guys crack me up! My favorite part is the battle of the drums between Sully and Shannon. It's intense! They sound awesome (and I have not so good speakers) and the show just blew me away. I would recommend this DVD to any Godsmack fan!

Great rock concert... interesting interviews... awesome drummer... Sept. 9 2005
By K. Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I am a fan of Godsmack, but not necessarily passionately so. I've never taken in a live show, but I have a couple of their studio CD's and think a number of their songs are excellent. That being said, I did not expect them to be a great live act. I didn't have faith that Sully could pull off his songs live. Boy, what a fool I was!!!

Sully and the band put on an absolutely flawless show. The entire band really rocks and Sully's vocals are tight. I wouldn't call it a spectacle to see, but it doesn't need to be. There are some lasers, lights, and pyro (oh, and moving drum/percussion sets - a definite highlight). But the set is really all about the music. And the performances really blew me away.

I have great respect for each of the band members having now seen them perform and having gotten to know them a little through the quality interviews included. Godsmack is just a great rock band that believe in the power of their art and entertainment. It certainly moved me.

And I must call attention to the drummer, Shannon. Other reviewers have praised him as well, but I have to say he is the most exciting drummer I have ever seen. He is an absolute wildman on the drums. His skill is great I am sure, but the amazing thing is the visual spectacle. He just wails on the drums. During the interviews mention is made of the muppet Animal, and the analogy is perfect. The drum battle between Sully and Shannon truly is awesome. I can't imagine any music fan not being pumped up after that one. Shannon goes off throughout. Check him out on Bad Religion, etc.

This DVD really heightened my knowledge of the band. I have a whole new respect for them. If you are a huge fan already, I am not saying anything you do not already know. But if you're like me and are really just a casual fan, let me encourage you, you cannot go wrong with this DVD. If you like live rock and roll, you'll love what these guys have to offer you.
