4 stars Along with the short EP consisting of five brand new songs, Primus added a DVD along with it. This DVD consists of all the Primus music videos from John the Fisherman all the way to The Devil Went Down to Georgia (included for the first time on this set). Now, if you're a fan of Primus then you'll definitely like this along with the cd set that came with it. If you're new to Primus, this album and DVD will introduce you to both the new and the old Primus (and some of the best songs from all of their albums up to this one). If you're not a fan of music videos, though, you'll probably be hard pressed to find any enjoyment out of this, though.

But there's more to this than music videos, too. On top of the videos, there is commentary for all the music videos as well as concert footage spanning all eras of Primus' career, a nice photo gallery and some great rare footage of pre-Suck on This Primus (with Todd Huth and Jay Lane and Tim Wright, who were both drummers and Lane replaced Wright). Also present are interviews with the band about their evolution and their entire history. Quite nice for those just getting into the group getting essentially a history lesson on the group.

In the end, when coupled with the cd portion of the EP, this DVD is rather nice, but it doesn't really stand well on its own in my opinion. I'd recommend this set (which includes the cd if you didn't get that by now) to those just getting into Primus mainly for the DVD because you'll get a nice crash course into the group. But for me, the seasoned fan, this was a more satisfying collection than the cd part. 4/5.
