From Amazon.co.uk

This imaginatively titled release contains both footage of Rage Against the Machine in concert and uncensored versions of six of the group's videos. This isn't quite the value for money it might sound, since most of their videos are heavily reliant on concert footage anyway, and in a couple of cases it's difficult to tell one from the other.

That said, the concert footage, taken from a few different RATM shows, is crisply shot and conveys enough of RATM's intoxicating (if one-dimensional) ferocity to be effective. A couple of the videos are also worth seeing, if only because they wouldn't have much hope of getting played on television: the clip for "Freedom", especially, is a clever and acute retelling of the story of American Indian Movement activist Leonard Peltier, shortly to complete his third decade of imprisonment.

On the DVD: Rage Against the Machine on disc has a choice of stereo sound or Dolby Digital 5.1. English subtitles are available on most tracks. Special features include a track selector, contacts for organisations with which RATM are sympathetic, and a book list largely comprising indigestible polemical tracts of the sort often bought, but rarely read, by the earnest students who constitute Rage Against the Machine's core audience. However, given that most bands use any spare capacity on their DVDs to flog T-shirts, RATM deserve credit for trying something different. --Andrew Mueller

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This Rage Against the Machine DVD features a selection of live performances from different dates and venues, as well as some uncensored music video clips. These music videos feature lots more live footage (as RATM videos tend to do) and there is also a poetry reading from Zack which is read over film footage. The special features on the DVD include lyrics, a reading list based on the books inside the `Evil Empire' album cover, an audio track of `The Ghost of Tom Joad' and a contact list of various organisations the band wishes to highlight. The live half of the disc offers up some explosive performances and whilst sometimes this isn't quite as tight as the `Olympic Auditorium' live disc, it has just as much passion and force. The music video for `Freedom' is especially good as they use it to bring to our attention the case of Leonard Peltier who is incarcerated under very dubious judicial conditions. All in all this is a good disc of live performances and videos and whilst I prefer the previously mentioned 'Olympic Auditorium' disc (as it feels more coherent and tight), this still has some great tracks to delight RATM fans.

If you never had a chance to see Rage Against the Machine live, you really missed out. There was a time when Zach de la Rocha was the most frightening performer in the land. I caught them twice in '93, just as they were hitting - the shows were incendiary. Zach was wrath in the flesh, a live wire, ready to strike at any moment with unbridled fury. The pit was as wild as any I've ever experienced (I almost had a tooth knocked out!)

I saw them once again in 1999 during "The Battle of Los Angeles" tour. The band was much tighter, and Zach got down, but I felt like they had lost much of their menacing edge. Still, they were absolutely captivating.

This DVD captures Rage somewhere in between these two states. Most of the performances are from 1996/1997, their "Evil Empire" tour, with the exception of a couple from 1994 (pre-"Evil Empire"). Zach comes off as monstrous in '94, and more human in 1996/1997. Throughout, his intensity is at peak, especially on "Freedom" and "Tire Me" where he just goes absolutely nuts. It will give you shivers. Tom Morello is an extraordinary guitar player and is fascinating to watch as well.

The live stuff is the reason to get this, but they've also included six music videos as a bonus. The early videos, like "Killing in the Name", are so poorly dubbed and low budget that they're almost painful to watch. The later videos border on jaw dropping they're so good (my favorite is "Bulls on Parade".)

Unfortunately the special features are a little bland. One, for example, is a reading list. Another is a list of non-profit organizations that the band supports. Noble, sure, but both are already available on the Rage web site, where they are more legible.

Format: DVD
I was looking for DVDs to build up my shabby collection when I stumbled upon this. RATM are without doubt the best band I've heard for a long long time and this DVD contains concert footage of the band jupin round like epileptic kangaroos on trampolines to the delight of the crowd (and viewer). The sheer power of the band's music is immense and the politicaly motivated lyrics add depth and meaning (this aint no 'Fast Food Song' Folks).
The first half contains live footage and the second half is uncunt videos (which rely heavily on live footage anyway). All the tracks are fantastic (how does Mr. Morello make those sounds with his little guitar?!) but sadly there are none from 'The Battle Of Los Angeles' album.
RATM are now no more so if you want to experience them live, the closest you're going to get is this DVD (or perhaps 'The Battle Of Mexico City' by 'Rage Against The Editor'). It's not quite up at five stars because there are some duff songs on there (you ever heard 'Zapata's Blood'?) and most live songs you then get again in the videos section. Also the extra material is pants. Oh well never mind eh?

Format: DVD
This fantastic compendium of Rage's finest hits creates the perfect DVD treat for all who like it heavily catchy. The great thing is about this is it has really good videos as well as great live in concert tracks. There really is no other music DVD that matches up to the sheer quality of this compilation that reminds you of one of the greatest bands in the world. Their lyrics make a point, the sound is anything but keyboard based, what more could you want?
