It's mostly interviews with the band and Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois about the process of making the album, what they were trying to achieve, etc. It's a good "behind the scenes" resource, very informative, and there are comments they make there that I still think of whenever I hear the songs in concert.

I love the bit where he says something like, "And here's where a big solo should go. But instead I do this" and it's him at his restrained best. It's so very Edge.

Uhu... he wrote Where the Streets Have No Name and he played the demo on his own with a guitar, keyboard and the drums.

"You can see why I'm not a drummer. If you listen to the drumpart I choose... it's not very good..." - Edge

Cool, I didnt know; just starting to delve more into the 'backstory' (bad choice of words!) behind the songs and such. I love finding out stuff like this. ^_^

Besides what others have mentioned, it also has the full performances of Running To Stand Still (from the ZooTV live from Sydney video) and Mothers of the Disappeared (from the PopMart live from Santiago video), as well as the video for The Sweetest Thing.

This dvd is a MUST have! I'd get it just because Edge is absolutely gorgeous.

Oh .. oh .. oh .. and GREAT Bono parts in the 9th chapter (Exit). Daniel & Bono at the mixing board:
1) Daniel cues up Bono's vocals & it sounds really raw so Bono winces at it. *see icon*
2) Daniel comments on Bono's guitar playing.
3) Bono wants to touch the buttons & for a moment I thought Daniel was going to slap Bono's hands away from the controls.

And did I mention that Edge is gorgeous?
*swoon*

Bono's my #1 man .. Edge come in 3rd. So if I say Edge is gorgeous in this dvd, I think even you would drool a bit. It must be the way the light hits his eyes or his playful grin .. or maybe the hat fetish that I've seemed to have aquired lately thanks to Bono, but the point is Edge looks really good on this dvd.

There's interviews with Bono, Edge & Adam .. I'm racking my brain to remember if Larry was in it (I haven't watched it in almost a year). The music video to Sweetest Thing closes the dvd. And there's a live version of Running To Stand Still.
