    I can say that the disc is a MUST-BUY for any Pumpkins fan! The commentaries and outtake material are a rare find and often very candid. I think you can get this disc for $14.99 at most places.

    Unfortunately, I cannot tell if it's 5.1 or stereo. I have Pro-Logic, but I am inclined to think that it's just 2.0

    It's 2.0. The sound is generally solid with one notable exception: "Bullet With Butterfly Wings". All sorts of weird things happen during that tune.

    Am I happy with the disc? Exceedingly so. It's a terrific package that was much more interesting than I expected. Best music video set I've ever seen!

    My review just went online yesterday - you can find it through the link in my sig...

    If you run a search for "smashing pumpkins" you'll find a thread with a lot of opinions. But I love this disc to death.

    Agreed, it is one of the best music video compilation DVDs on the market. And the 2.0 sound is more than enough let me assure you. Bass is incredible and very, very smooth on my system.

    All audio tracks on the discs are recorded at 224kbps in Stereo and they mostly sound great. One thing that bugs me is that the Zero video is cencored (the word "shit" is cut). Otherwise this is a great DVD.
