Review

Changes gives an intimate portrayal of life on tour with Godsmack,one of today s top selling bands. Shot by Daniel E. Catullo III and Andrew MacNaughtan throughout the band s 2003-2004 Faceless Tour, the film lets viewers experience the rigors of being on the road and traveling from city to city to perform music for tens of thousands of die-hard fans. Since 1998, Godsmack has been one of the most successful hard rock bands in the US, selling over 7 million records, including the #1 album of 2003 Faceless , 11 Top Ten singles and 3 Grammy nominations. The film features in-depth interviews with all four band members, behind-the-scenes material, and live concert footage shot with 14 cameras in High Definition,16:9 format. Viewers can choose from 5.1, DTS, 5.1 Multi-Channel and PCM Stereo/SRS Circle Surround Sound for a superior audio experience. Godsmack has gone from being an unknown Boston band to become one the most popular and widely acclaimed hard rock acts in the United States, with a fan-base in the millions. Changes is just a small part of their story and accomplishments that have earned them the term Hard as nails and cranked to eleven! --Sleeve notes

Well. this is a good dvd, with a lot of space filled with interstering interviews with the band and a good set list from the faceless tour. the only thing is there is a real lack of power wen comparing this to the first Godsmack Live DVD. The first DVD was so powerful, the band looked alive and full of energy (i dont know if that was because of the camera work) and a lot more entertaining than this one.
This DVD is like listening to the faceless album wiv visual accompanient since theres very little crowd noise and little life in the band members imo.
I still enjoyed it though.

I'm not a huge Godsmack fan, but I needed to do some research on Shannon Larkin for a drumming job I was doing, so bought this DVD for research.
The highlight of the DVD for me was the great drum solo section, where Sully and Shannon perform a drum solo duet. If you are in to drumming and percussion, this is a must-see! After some tribal, rhythmic exchanges between the two of them, they start playing some of the best and most famous drum grooves in recorded music from bands like Led Zeppelin, Rush and Aerosmith. The rest of the band also play along with them, so there's a little bit of melody going on too.

The rest of the DVD features great song performances, interviews and tour diary-style footage. The sound is great, and camera work is good too.
After watching the concert, I would definitely go and see these guys play live.

Although my DVD player is struggling to play the disk the Comp's doin just fine. It's a crackin' DVD and the drum battle in the middle is just awesome, it gives a good insight to the band on the road and the concert footage (although not a lot of crowd noise) is crisp and shows just how good Godsmack are live.
A deffinate for any fans out there :)

A great, informative, and fun DVD! 29 Jun. 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 1 Nov. 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 18 Dec. 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.

Great rock concert... interesting interviews... awesome drummer... 9 Sept. 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.

The DL on Godsmack 30 Sept. 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!
