8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By JUAN MARTIN GABASTOU VINE VOICE on 8 May 2007
Format: Audio CD
The main feature on this dvd is a 15 song performance of the band's 1985 tour of Japan, the Live In Osaka `85 VHS documentary. It's not entirely a concert dvd, and the fact is NOT stated on the box. Pity, coz it's well shot with several camera angles and the sound is very good and can be cranked up ( alot coz itś recorded very low); a narrator intrudes on the intro to some songs . Most of what he says is lame and redundant like cheesily introducing the band and stating how great they are and how well they play. There are 2 videoclips and some more narration interspersed which somewhat affects the flow of the incredibly good live concert but whoś complaining ?! The performance is mind-blowing in intensity !! It's a great visual treat for the fans anyway despite being raw vhs footage not remastered or enhanced in any way. Plus, it's taken from a pretty battered tape to boot. Maybe to make up for this fact, the dvd is chock full of bonus features like videos to 7 songs, a pic gallery, a discography, etc, clocking in at aprox 120'. On the flipside, this dvd is a cd with a lot of cool unreleased audio material. Face it, this is the only decent live Accept official live on dvd and fans will drool over it, even casual ones like me.

This is about the only Accept DVD i could find on the Internet as they are a band from the past, the footage although taken from VHS is very acceptable as the sound has been re done to dolby standards, the tracks are amazing sound quality and the videos not bad either , there are some nice extras on the dvd including some album tracks i would highly recomend this dvd as its got plenty to keep you interested the live gig is superb, if you are an Accept fan this is a must buy.

can't believe how much stuff they packed onto this one disc 15 Feb. 2007
By George Dionne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Audio
The Good

The centerpiece of this DVD is a documentary on Accept that was originally released on home video years ago. It chronicles the band's rise to fame as well as their life on the road. Intertwined with the documentary is a live performance of Accept at their peak from Osaka, Japan in 1985 than includes 11 of their best tracks (at the time), and most of their music videos. The performance is one of their best, and the documentary is insightful. You can watch the music videos separately from the main potion of the DVD. You will also get to see videos that go beyond 1985.

One of the videos that surprised was "Generation Clash." I honestly had no idea that Accept tried the hair/pop metal thing after Udo departed. It sounds nothing like them. Another one that was interesting was "Protectors of Terror." Udo made his return to the group and Accept tried to cover up the hair metal thing by getting harder and a little controversial. The "Behind the Scenes" section focuses on band interviews from the Osaka period. It's rather short. In an effort to get closer to a modern day version of Accept, you get a three song performance from one of their reunion gigs on 1993.

A discography is included, but this is one of the more interesting one's I've seen. With each album you click on you get to hear at least two song samples from it. If you don't want to click album to album, there's a separate section for just the music samples. An extensive biography is include as well as links to all of the member's websites. There's still no official Accept website. This DVD release is actually dual sided. On the flip side is an audio section. Unlike most concert DVDs, you're not getting an audio version of the live show. Accept actually give you nine previously unreleased tracks. Most are demos and from the "Breaker" album.

The Bad

I would have liked a more current documentary.

The Verdict

I can't believe how much stuff they packed onto this one disc. Some Accept fans may be a little miffed because they are recycling some old material, but overall you get a lot of Accept history. Everything I didn't know about Accept from their hey-day was cleared up on the DVD. I found that most of bonus features were interesting (which is a rarity). The song samples helped me decide which Accept albums I want to check out next. This is a Metal Blast that you simply cannot ignore.

Accept this! 8 Jan. 2004
By Joseph Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Everything you would love to see in an Accept DVD plus more. I found the DVD very entertaining and quite humorous. If you never got to see Accept live - this is your chance! The DVD contains a live concert of the band in Japan in 1985, plus 3 live songs in 1993. It also features all of their videos. It has great collection of extra's ( all the album covers and lyrics) plus an audio "CD" side to the DVD with several demo cuts and unreleased material that any Accept fan would love to have. After I finished watching the DVD, I found that Accept is a bunch of fun loving guys with great music. Obviously if you are interested in this DVD you know Udo Dirkschneider makes the band with the love it or hate it voice, but I think Wolf Hoffman has got to be one of the greatest guitar players out there(I see he is also one hell'va photographer as well). Die hard Accept fans will love it, and any fan of 80's metal will also enjoy it as well. My only issue was the quality of the picture suffered over the years. But with today's standards any film from the 80's is going to suffer in detail. Definate must have!!

Accept Rules! 10 Feb. 2004
By Christopher Fryer - Published on Amazon.com
Living in Japan I was able to get the original Staying A Life on video. The show, which was filmed in Osaka 1985, was during the peak of their career (although the Russian Roulette tour would be great to see too!). This Dvd contains almost everything from that video as well as a few new song videos. If I had one complaint it would be that there were not enough interviews with the band. Maybe they don't exist but it would be great to see more home videos, interviews, etc.. Also, the interview with Udo in the studio from the original video was not inluded on this dvd. Anyways, this dvd is definitely worth getting if you are an Accept fan! The live concert and the videos for Metal Heart and Balls To The Wall Kick Ass! Check out UDO's dvd as well.

Great Material, Poorly Done 25 Oct. 2010
By Aron Rush - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I absolutely love this band's brand of raunchy metal, and Udo has one of the best voices in metal. This dvd contains live footage, interviews, videos, etc. plus an audio side to the disc containing previously unreleased material (more on that later). So what's the problem? The format for starters. This is a poorly written nerdy excuse for a documentary, not a "live video" as stated on the back cover. Lame narration begins the concert and then repeatedly interrupts it, throwing in footage of the band at work and play on tour and music videos. All this (minus the dork doing the narrating) would be fine if it was separated. The picture quality is about like old 80's video tapes, grainy and smudged. The sound quality, while not up to today's standards, is actually pretty good and the band is rocking.

The music videos are also gathered where you can watch them separately from the main feature, great right? You can still hear that useless narrator at the beginning and end as these were just sliced from the documentary with no thought for quality and an obvious lack of skill. Other than that, yea, they're great. The "Live Sophia '93" segment again sounds good. The boys are rockin' hard! Picture quality, however, is only a slight improvement over the '85 concert. There's only three songs in this segment. The "Behind The Scenes" is the best bonus feature to the video. You actually have some interviews with band members and clips of them being silly and having fun in general.

Ah well, we've still got an audio section on the other side of the disc. This is a real treat for any Accept fan. You get a Japan only bonus cut, two outtakes from the sessions for I'm A Rebel, five demos from Breaker and an acoustic version of Writing On The Wall. Not really lost treasures, but pretty cool. Unfortunately you can't rip this to the PC and/or burn this off! You either drag your DVD around with you or only play this on the home stereo.

If you love Accept, go ahead and buy this. While it was very poorly put together, there's a lot of great Accept here to watch and hear. Some of this will more than likely piss you off when you see how they blew the opportunity to make an excellent documentary and DVD devoted to this underrated German heavy metal band. I love Accept, so I don't regret buying it, but the people who put this together really let us all down, especially the guys in Accept.

A grainy picture from the past 10 Feb. 2005
By Perkuna$ - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of the worst DVD's I ever saw. I am an Accept fan but this not worth it's price. Bad sound, bad (grainy) picture and the songs from the live show are not complete, the songs are cut off for interviews. The only good thing about this DVD are the video clips. And did I mention that the menu is very slow.
