By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME on 13 Aug. 2005
Format: DVD Audio Verified Purchase
This DVD-single of 'Obstacle 1' is something more for the Interpol fan who wants everything - unlike quite a lot of DVD-singles, it doesn't have an audio-element (many have a video and a few audio-tracks). Instead, we get the cool video to 'Obstacle 1' - directed by Floria Sigismondi and suitably arty looking, we get images that remind me of 'Ringu' & Daniel Kessler sporting some lovely lambchop-sideburns. Also there are "audio tracks" of 'Leif Erikson' and 'Specialist' from the 'Black Sessions' of 2002 - both storming versions, but unplayable on cd-computer and just played on DVD to the cover art. Possibly pointless, and you'll still need to buy the 'Black e.p.' for these great takes of 'Leif Erikson' & relatively hard to find 'Specialist.'
The cover is cool, but this isn't as great a DVD-single as it could have been - the medium has been used better by others and I'm pretty sure there's a Matador-compilation with a better DVD-aspect including either 'Obstacle 1' or 'PDA.' So, this DVD-single is one for the fans - though I think between 'Antics' and its follow-up, there's time for an Interpol-compilation of the harder to find stuff (the 'Black e.p.' is a bit short), such as the 'Interpol' e.p. (now fetching collectable prices), the tracks on the Chemikal Underground e.p. 'Fukd ID' (including 'Roland', '5' & 'Precipitate'), the earlier version of 'Time So Small' (found on compilations), the Arthur Baker mixes of 'Obstacle 1', 'Song Seven' & the track for 'Six Feet Under', 'Direction.' One to have, but one that will probably loiter in a pile of unplayed cds...

HASH(0x908bd60c) out of 5 stars Totally disappointing 23 Oct. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Based on Arthur Baker's work with New Order, and the outstanding quality of the Interpol material, I had great hopes for this. The result is completely disappointing, however. The remix adds nothing whatever of any interest to the material.

AS OTHERS HAVE STATED, I WASN'T REALLY FEELING THE REMIX OF THIS VERSION...

WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER WAS A REMIX OF THEIR ENTIRE ALBUM, VERSUS A SINGLE SONG...

I LIKE THE ORIGINAL SONG, BUT THE REMIX JUST ISN'T WORKING FOR ME...

I, LIKE OTHERS, FEEL A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS PURCHASE...

IF YOU ARE A HUGE FAN OF THE BAND ( WHICH I STILL AM), DOWNLOAD THIS ONE INSTEAD OF PURCHASING IT...

HOPE THIS HELPS,
