Episode 10: Up from the Underground
24 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With the rise of MTV and Rap music, rock music have come as far as they can be from its roots which was electric guitar, and grass roots artists. Now artists are all polished and produced so they'll look like a rock star, and virtuosity of playing the instrument isn't even an issue with scratching, and sampling of other people's music.

This final episode deals with how Rap music came into the scene with Melle Mel employing two record players so he can play music non-stop, and how he found out how people got excited when he played the best part of the music repeatedly.

There's a cursory section on Michael Jackson, and some '80s and '90s band such as Greenday, but the final section of this mini-series is lacking any in-depth coverage of rock bands from that era.

As a whole, you shouldn't expect this series to be any kind of serious documentary about rock history (despite its title), or expect even treatment of various phenomenon during the course of its history, but more as an entertainment that's based on rock music. For a deeper look into the history of rock n roll, I recommend the other 10 hour mini-series, "Rock & Roll" which was shown on PBS.
