I consider myself a real fan of Spinal Tap: i got the VHS tapes, the cds, the Criterion DVD, etc... so naturally i pre-ordered when i heard the guy's had a new cd. But "Back from the dead" is disappointing: only 2 new songs really, the other tunes are re-recorded classics and some studio jams. The bonus DVD is 1 hour of the guy's talking about the songs, unrehearsed and thus only sporadically funny. To make matters worse they're on an acoustic tour at the moment (???) If you saw the band rock out on Conan O'Brien a few days ago and you want to hear more then i suggest you buy the amazing None more black album aka This is Spinal Tap and also the most excellent "Break like the wind".
