Wondering if any Pearl Jam fans picked this up I believe it came out at the end of September.

How is the A/V side of it also, thanks!

Let me preface this by saying that I'm a HUGE fan. I've seen them live about a dozen times, own all the legal boots, etc. I consider Single Video Theory to be one of the best music DVDs ever released.

but...

I ordered it through the Ten Club. Maybe I wasn't in the right mood, but I found it to be extremely boring. The song selection is atrocious and any momentum built up in the performances is shattered by artsy montages of Italian streets and locations. The "interviews" with the band aren't particularly eye-opening or interesting.

The DVD quality is good... the image varies based on the type of film or video each section was filmed on. The audio is excellent. The case is beautiful, it's like a small book (similar to the case of the Avacado album).

It's probably worth a rental, but I would recommend Touring Band 2000 or Live At The Garden much more. You won't get as much behind-the-scenes stuff, but the music and performances are much, much better.

I agree that the song selection is dull, but the performances are very good. It's not the best PJ DVD - that'd be "Live at the Garden" - but it's decent:
