1 stars I picked this up at my local independant Video shop out of curiosity. I've made it a habit of viewing bands that I've heard of or read about, but have never got to getting their albums. So far, Minor Threat, the Flower Kings have been great suprises. Tangent, Spock's Beard, Stormtroopers of Death have not. Then this one. I thought for sure that with their rep, that at the very least it should prove interesting viewing & listening. NAH ! It comes across as Devo on too much Gravol. The music rarely rises above a somewhat ghostlike volume or presence. The video aspect is best described as college level arts' students' stoned project. Nice colours, weird imagery, non-sensical stories. And for some reason I still want to check out other so-called classic Residents output, but it'll be the albums, & sampled before any money is disbursed. So unless you actually love the group, pass this one by. Or if you enjoy heavy duty drugs, then maybe this might work for you.
