This DVD certainly gives you a lot of Bach, but you may not be entirely pleased with the quality. The live concert footage is poor, and does not have the quality of sound that the live tracks on 'Bring 'Em Bach Alive' has. Despite this, you will still enjoy watching and seeing one of the best vocalists on the planet in action.
Songs to be noted include 18 & Life, Youth Gone Wild, Parasite, Riot Act and I Remember You. In A Darkened Room is RUINED by Flemion's attempt to provide backing vocals and completely destroys the magic that the track can possess.
The footage from VH1 is interesting, but not something you will watch over and over again - and the lack of any form of explanation as to why his band change so regularly is irking.
It is a good DVD, and if you like Sebastian Bach then please buy it. If however, you are considering trying him out as a new thing, then please go with the CD 'Bring 'Em Bach Alive', it is the better format.

Firstly let me say that i was more exited than most to hear that one of the greatest and most underrated vocalists on planet rock was releasing a dvd. Unfortunately, Road Kill or Oh Say Can You Scream this aint.
What we have instead is a selection of clips and outtakes from VH1's Forever Wild show which Baz hosted, intermixed with a live set Shot at the Whisky-a-Go-Go club in LA. The sound and picture quality of the live show is decent bootleg at best, not at all worthy of a DVD release. The clips of Baz messing around at home seem staged and cheezy, and with the exception of the VH1 clips, the whole thing looks and sounds like it was put together using a camcorder and a couple of VCR's wired together.
For the die hards there is not much new for you, Live (albeit poor quality) versions of Sleep, Eternal Life, and Blasphemer. There's also an interactive Bachography which seems to promise that baz will give us the story behind all the songs in his, and Skid Rows' back catalogue, but in reality it's only around 7 songs.
Recommended only if you can think of nothing better to do with your money.
