    That might be the best thing they've done since 84'.

    Dave's funny on the whole White Glove - Michael Jackson story. Eddie just keeps playing the riff and looking at Dave like, "let's get on with it!"

    I watched the bonus DVD and thought it was odd and they were a little out of synch. Dave is gloriously goofy and I did like that.

    I love the album, but the bonus DVD would have been cooler if it was fully live and electric. But what the heck, it's a bonus so I can't complain!

    I think it sounds good. Their backing vocals are actually good on this. I like the jamming at various times. Some of Eddie's acoustic solos are interesting, as well.

    I bought the deluxe version and checked out last night. Loosey-Goosey, just the way a mellow acoustic driven performance with DLR should be. Wolfie nails most of the backing vocals, I'm very impressed with this kid (so far).

    I really enjoyed it! It wasn't meant to be the be-all-end-all live footage, just the guys sitting around playing.

    I felt that it's worth the extra couple of bucks for the deluxe version of the album. More footage = better.
