Since it's not in 5.1, I wonder if I should get it. I ordered the George Michael DVD because of the song/video selection and the sound format: 5.1.

I highly recommend this DVD. It has tons of videos, a nice 5-minute introduction, and the 20-minute "Depeche Mode: A Short Film" that's also pretty good. It's over 2 hours in length, and is RSDL despite the track listing, which says Side 1 and Side 2.

The sound isn't DD5.1, but it is CD-quality PCM so it's much better than DD2.0. I think it sounds great. Video is often grainy but was intentionally filmed that way (e.g., Enjoy the Silence, all of the Music for the Masses videos).

Finally, some of the video versions of the songs are much better than their album counterparts, especially "In Your Room." Bottom-line: If you're a fan, get it! HTH.
