"Words cannot accurately describe the sheer brutality and power of this band live. From the moment Napalm Death takes the stage at the University of London, they OWN IT!! The most intense 70 minutes (not including the extra songs from 96 & 97 tours) ever caught on film. The setlist is heavily laden with older material such as Scum, You Suffer (which is all of 4 seconds long!), Life, and The Kill. Although there are quite a few Enemy of the Music Business tracks represented here too: Next on the List, Constitutional Hell, Take the Poison, Can't Play Won't Pay, Vermin etc. There are some KILLER cover songs like Raw Power's Politicians, which might be the best track on the whole dvd, Death's Back from the Dead, and the Dead Kennedy's Nazi Punks to name a few. Barney Greenway's voice is just as good live as it is on record, which is completely unfathomable. The sounds that eminate from this man are astounding. Danny Herrera is nothing sort of a machine with precision and intensity that are unmatched. Shane is the glue that holds it all together, and hold it together he does. This band is as tight as they come. Mitch and Jesse are as good a one-two punch of guitarist as there are on the planet(only King and Hanneman are even close). As I sat and watched Punishment in Capitals, I could not help but notice that my jaw was agape the entire running time, this DVD is documented testimony and legitimate claim that Napalm Death are the best metal/hardcore/grindcore/whatever band to ever walk the face of this earth. Highest Recommendation."
Napalm Death come back blasting

"I have the older ND DVD issued by Earache as well as this one. Both are excellent, and I would recommend all fans to get both. The difference with this new release -- besides the change in drummer and the newer material -- is that it was filmed with a widescreen DVD presentation in mind, at least the concert footage. In terms of direction, I still prefer the 1990 concert included on the Earache disc, but this is an incredible concert, with lots of energy. Barney in particular seems to have a new lease of life in the recent concert. Compare his performance with those of the Chile and Japan gigs (included here as bonus materials) and you'll see what I mean -- his lifestyle changes have obviously been beneficial. The quality of the footage on the extras is quite rough, as is the sound, but they are nice to have included on the disc, even if you only watch them through once. The main concert and the accompanying documentary, on the other hand, you'll be watching many times. There are some classic moments with Shane, Jesse and the others in the band room, and some interesting insights into the politics of the band members as well. It is clear that Barney saw it as his responsibility as replacement for Lee Dorrian to continue the lyrical quality and political edge established by his predecessor. The band, especially the guitarists, give an exceptional performance, and the cover and original material come across equally well. Danny Herrera, while he has a very different personality compared to former drummer Mick 'The Human Tornado' Harris (now Scorn/Quoit/Lull), gives an absolutely blistering performance that will not fail to impress.There are two versions of this DVD. Both are 'region free' but one is in NTSC and the other in PAL. International buyers in countries where the native format is PAL should try the British or German Amazon[.com] sites for the PAL version. In terms of content they would appear to be identical.An excellent release from this legendary band!"
This DVD is amazing

"I was searching the internet for the tracklist of this for about a month with no success. So if theres anyone like me out there, here it is:
Lucid Fairytale, Take the Poison, Next on the List, Constitutional Hell, Suffer the Children, Cleanse Impure, Politicians, Breed to Breathe, Vermin, The World Keeps Turning, Can't Play Won't Pay, Unchallenged Hate, Volume of Neglect, Narcoleptic, Hung, From Enslavement to Obliteration, Scum, Life, The Kill, Deceiver, You Suffer, Cure for a Common Complaint, Mass Appeal Madness, Greed Killing, Instinct of Survival, Nazi Punks F**k Off, Back from the Dead, and Siege of Power.
This entire setlist is awesome. There are a bunch of songs I really wanted to hear that weren't on this, but in order to put all the awesome songs on, this would be a 4 hour DVD, not including the bonus features.
A documentary type thing is also included, which is good if your into that type of thing. Shane Embury is definitely the coolest guy in the band. Barney in my opinion is kind of a loser, as he is sXe, vegetarian, he isn't good at headbanging, and he cut off his hair. But thats beside the point.
Bonus tracks: My own worst enemy, More than meets the eye, Discordance, I abstain, unchallenged hate, greed killing, suffer the children, mass appeal madness. I only wish they had picked some songs for bonus material that weren't already on the DVD. Oh well. BUY THIS NOW."
