    It’s amazing that when Sevendust released this DVD in 2001 that they were able to scrape together as much material to put on it as they did. At the time of the release, they only had two albums out there, with a third in the oven (2001′s “Animosity”), but yet, “Retrospect” captures so much Sevendust information and footage, that it seems like they’ve been around much longer. This DVD is chock-full of interviews, music videos, live performances, and behind-the-scenes stuff. It definitely doesn’t skimp on the material, and covers just about every angle of the band’s career up until this point. The DVD begins with some interviews detailing how the band got together and how they got signed, before getting into the exciting “Live & Loud” live special they pieced together as an alternative for doing individual music videos for the debut album. The performance on here is absolutely phenomenal and it’s interesting to watch a young Sevendust perform just as well as they do nowadays. Further into the DVD, they get into the making of the second album, 1999′s “Home,” my favorite part of which is watching them record “Bender” with Chino Moreno (the Deftones) in tow. Another section of the DVD that I really appreciated is the coverage of their relationship with the late Lynn Strait and the band Snot. The guys in Sevendust show lots of love, and have plenty of stories to tell, as well as the making of “Angel’s Son,” their contribution to the “Strait Up” tribute album. In addition to all this, we are treated to the four music videos they had at the time: “Denial,” “Waffle,” “Angel’s Son” and “Licking Cream,” which wasn’t released in the U.S. Also, we are given two TV appearances — “Waffle,” performed on Late Night With Conan O’Brien and “Angel’s Son,” performed on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno (with Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray sitting in on guitar). Another moving performance of “Angel’s Son,” captured at the Worcester Centrum is included, as well as “Rumble Fish,” from the infamous Woodstock 1999. There are a few other surprises sprinkled in between, and overall, this release is full to the brim with content. Leave it to Sevendust to never leave us disappointed. Surely by now they have even more stories to tell, and hopefully they put another DVD just as good as this one out in the near future. As for this release, if you love Sevendust, you need this.

    Ive been to several Sevendust shows and they are without a doubt thew best live heavy rock band. I cant explain the energy these guys give off. Anyhoo, this DVD is just great. You can view three concert clips, two tv spots, several music videos, watch the complete “live and loud” concert from a few years ago, or watch the whole “retrospect” feature that runs the length of an average movie. You get to know the guys better. You get to see them golf. You get it all. It doesnt really touch on the newest (and best) album animosity but thats cool. I love it.

    If you are a true Sevendust fan, you will love this DVD!!! The only thing it is missing is music from Animosity. All 3 of their CD’s are incredible and this DVD catches them in all of their action (video’s, concerts, tv appearances, etc). Sevendust is the the new wave of the future!!!
