Hmm, I wonder what Tim's doing on his own Confused

aha, he must have done the message bit at the startI'm guessing
Look: A Back To The Disaster review:

Reviewer: Dusty Gates (Brooklyn, NY) - See all my reviews
Recently many bands have taken a part in releasing either a live album, or a DVD accompanied with a collection of live tracks. Granted, while this is nothing new, there have been quite a few bands to have done this as of late; Green Day, Maroon 5, Simple Plan, even Slipknot. The latest of these is Sugarcult's documentary, Back to the Disaster (the name of which, is taken from a lyric from their 2004 single, "Memory"Wink.
The package includes a DVD with the documentary on it, some music videos, a photo gallery, live performances, the stuff typically found on a release such as this. The bonus audio disc, "Live at the Starland Ballroom" is just what it sounds like, a handful of songs taken from a show performed at the Starland Ballroom in New Jersey.

The documentary itself doesn't really bring much new to the table. The band members are introduced to the viewer, you get to see what their personalities are all like (the jokester, the musically intelligent, the ladies man, the natural promoter, and so forth), what they think of being on the road, going on tour with a band they grew up listening to (in this case, Green Day), the usual stuff you hear bands talk about in their documentaries about themselves. There's even interviews with original drummer, Ben Davis and how he feels about the band.

However, just because the documentary doesn't bring anything new to the table doesn't mean it's not entertaining to watch. I think everyone would be surprised to discover what drummer Kenny Livingston keeps under his pillow in the tour bus, feel sympathy for vocalist/guitarist Tim Pagnotta when his "disaster" (as the DVD chapter calls it) forced the band into playing only acoustic sets, even hope that guitarist Marko72 would make it back to America in time to see his son be born.

In addition to the documentary, the DVD also boasts music videos for Memory (both the original and the animated) and She's the Blade (as well as a behind-the-scenes look). There are live performances of the band on the Warped Tour, as well as some from their show at the Starland Ballroom, all of which can also be found on the bonus disc sans the visual. The photo gallery is a nice plus, if you're into looking at pictures of the band.

The "Live at the Starland Ballroom" disc is a very nice addition to the DVD. While Sugarcult's live performance has a bit of a different sound to it (the chorus to "Memory" in particular), they don't get sloppy, which is always a good sign. Of notable mention, seconds into the first track (the Start Static hit, "Stuck in America"Wink, Tim shouts at the crowd in a very Billie Joe-esque manner, showing even more of Green Day's influence on the band, as mentioned in the documentary (make that three for the number of times Green Day has been mentioned in some way or another in thie review).
My only real complaint with the disc is that it's a bit too short (only 30 minutes in length) and you'd wonder why they just didn't put their entire performance on it, seeing as how there's definitely room for it.

Overall, while Back to the Disaster doesn't bring anything new to the world of bands releasing documentaries about themselves, it does give fans of Sugarcult some insight on the band members, as well as something new to play over and over until the new album comes out (hopefully sometime in 2006).


I love that review, -excited, will purcase-.


Yeah, it's a pretty good Very Happy
I managed to finish watching it Xmas day, I escaped my family Laughing
But yeah, the main thing is like, 1hr 15 ish. Something like that Confused
But the CD is a bit meh, 9 tracks isn't long enough =( and it has no Bouncing Off The Walls

But yeah, they've said that the new album is going to be released in May at some point *gets excited*

I know. There was a week back in September where I listened to Alkaline Trio over 110 times xD

I remember the times where I had more unique tracks each week, now I just obsess over songs xD
