Of course this DVD is from their recent "Forever Faithless" greatest hits tour. Looking at the set list, you may think that having "Insomnia" so early in the set is a bit bizarre (second after the initial "Sweep" intro) but it sets up for a fantastic, spine tingling, non-stop ride from the best dance music pioneers in the world. From the dancefloor and arena rocking stormers like "God Is A DJ" and "Mass Destruction" (which is phenomenal when done live) to the more sublime tunes of "Miss U Less, See U More" and "Postcards", they merge the show into a thrilling journey of the best dance music you could hear. Speaking of merging, the tracks "I Want More" parts 1 & 2 seamlessly mix as if it were done by a DJ in a club. All of this bring you to the finalé (or so you think)... "We Come 1"!!! The crowd interaction on this song is unreal (having experienced it myself) and shows just why Faithless are the only dance act to sell out a stadium, fact!
If you've seen them live, buy this and remember the great night you had. If you haven't, then buy this to see what you are missing, and then shift your rear end to one of the 9 date gigs they are doing at the end of 2005!

repeat the above ad nauseum for the whole dvd
I may put this dvd on again for the odd song, but it would be impossible to watch it all the way through. I don't think the camera lingers long enough on any one shot to appreciate what you're seeing. You could put it on in the background if no-one was really watching it though.
Save your money and (if you've had the pleasure of seeing them live) keep your memories intact.
If you love Faithless then buy this DVD, sure the camera doesn't stay in one place for very long but live there is a huge amount of things to watch, be it Bliss on her keyboards or Maxi jumping around the stage to name a few.
If only for the soundtrack you NEED this DVD.
