CD/DVD set worth it?

Do you think the CD/DVD set for HTDAAB is worth the money?

I don't, really. Now, if it would have had the Vertigo video shot in the desert instead of the studio, I would've liked it a lot better.

What all is on that DVD? All I got was the plain CD but I will buy the DVD if it's cool.

I don't either! This may be silly, but I can't get the DVD to play in anything but my computer. Why won't it play in my DVD player, so I can listen to it through my stereo? It's not because I bought the import, right?

1 Documentary: 41 minutes
4 "videos" - Vertigo and stripped-down versions of other album tracks.

The one great thing about the UK version is the extra song "Fast Cars". It's a great song!

No.

It's a real rip off imo.
It doesn't even have a lyrics book. I could have saved myself £10 and got the £8.99 cd version

It should have the 'Desert Vertigo' vid. That's just stupid not having it on the Single DVD or this one...

If you cant spare the 2 dollars extra to get the DVD there is something wrong

The CD itself was 12.99 and the DVD with it was 14.99 nothing wrong with that and they had lots of content on the DVD.

Myself, I went to AmazonUK.com and pre-ordered the CD/DVD set. I didn't know if the domestic(US) version would have "Fast Cars". I paid $56(USD) for something that sold in the states for $14.99!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????????

they're selling the cd and the cd/dvd version here for the same price.

if you're curious about the dvd, it's probably worth the extra coupla bucks. i've heard a couple of the songs from the dvd version, and the acoustic version of 'sometimes' is fantastic.

i bought the collectors edition yesterday, but i don't have a dvd player. i'll have to entice my friends to let me watch it on theirs.

'fast cars' isn't on the US version of the regular cd or the cd/dvd.

Try $5 dollars more. CD was $9.98 (I've even seen it for as low as $6.99) and the lowest I have seen the DVD version for is $14.98

I watched the DVD content once. Will probably never watch any of it again except Vertigo.

It may be, because it may be a different region coding.

Fast cars wasnt on that version in North America.

The collectors edition wasnt worth the money but the deluxe edition was.

15 dollars for a cd and a dvd is a pretty good price i wouldnt have expected less.

I think the Collector's Edition was worth $25. Fast Cars, and the book were worth the extra $9 (the cd/dvd version was selling for $16.99)

I really think it's worth it. Of course, I'm really into how the band developed a song. I'm into different versions of the song. I thought the acoustic version of Sometimes was excellent. Then, you have the banjo version of Vertigo, which is hilarious.

The UK DVD is in PAL format. Unless you have a multiregion DVD player it won't play in regular US DVD players.

The temple Bar mix of Vertigo makes it worth it. Stupid me though I've bought the EU edition now I don't have Fast Cars. DAMN

I got my cd/dvd set for only 10.99 canadian thats l;ess then the usual price for a CD only! and many places have it for 13.99 which is still less then the price for a regular cd without dvd so why are we bitching about? I think the price is great! I think the MUSIC alone is worth more then the 10.99 even the 13.99!
