The Strokes

Last Impressions of Hell DVD

Review by Gary Hill

  I am beginning to feel like a skipping CD (wanted to say "broken record" – but that’s so passé) on these documentaries. There is only so much new to tell here. This entire series of DVD’s are unauthorized. That means the producers only get to talk to those around the bands – friends, old band-mates and such and to use archival footage. It also means that they can’t use the actual music of the artist. Once you understand all of that, some of these are quite good. This is one of those. It is an informative and entertaining production that will shed light on a band that might not be as well-known as they should be. In this case I knew little about this act. That has now changed and I have an increased appreciation and understanding based on this video. That means it did its job. None of the discs in this series is great, but this one is better than most.
