Like all R+ DVD's this is well presented & slick. The two DVD's contain footage of the Reise Reise tour 2004/2005 & interviews with R+. The tour footage was a tad disappointing as most was from Nimes in France (103 minutes) with only 34 minutes for the other 3 concerts featured. I was disappointed as I had been to Brixton, Birmingam & Berlin concerts in 2005 & felt that it would have been fairer to all concerts to show a bit of each. However, I'm bias & there is 18 minutes from Brixton (including Rein Raus)& Moskau being sung live in Moscow (amazing).
The footage is brillant ,with lots of close ups of the stage show & fans who went wearing t-shirts of other bands(shocking). Very professionally done but the camera man seemed very pre occupied at Nimes with a young woman who's breasts seemed to be escaping & there are several separate close ups dedicated to this.
My only real moan is that there are repeats of Ohne Dich (Nimes & Brixton), Du Hast (Japan & Nimes), Sonne (Nimes & Brixton), Mein Teil (Nimes & Japan) & Feuer Frei (Nimes & Brixton). Almost like the producers were filling in time.
The second DVD is WOW!!! The band are interviewed at length & there are British sub titles for the poor fans like me who struggle with German. This DVD contains clips I have not seen before (I've got a pretty good collection) & it is a really good insight into the feelings of the band towards fame & their success. A really interesting documentary that is nearly an hour long.
The CD is great but not necessary as most fans have all the albums any way. Nothing new on it, just all the great stuff live in a interesting order.
Is it necessary to own this if you are a huge Rammstein fan ? In my view yes. I have an extensive collection of Rammstein DVD's & interviews but this set had pieces I've never seen before. I have personal footage from Brixton but it is not a patch on how much more you see with the professional pieces. Worth the money..... a big yep.
