2 stars I was a bit disappointed to find that this was just a video for one song and an interview piece. I was hoping for at least three or four videos, but I shouldn't have been surprised since it was cheaper than the CD. Still, it's a nice video of Awakening and the interview is very informative.

This DVD is a limited series of 250 autographed by the band. I've got #198. If this band keeps it together and keeps on making great music it will become a very valuable item in my collection. And I hope they do just because I really like what they're doing.

The video is part performance video with some film and graphic images. Everyone appears to be present except for Rachel, whose image was pasted in. She is present in the audio, which I think is the studio track. It's a decent video, but I'll be expecting better from them in the future.

The interview part only includes the two guitarists, the keyboardist and the bassist. I really would have liked to see Rachel there and the drummer, too. One tidbit from the interview: the core of the band is the lead vocalist/guitarist Dylan Thompson and the bassist Matthew Cohen, but they've been drawing the other members into the writing.

I'll have to go with a low rating just due the single video without Rachel and the rest being interviews with only four of the band members. Plus it's a limited offer so won't likely be available as these guys build up a wider audience.
