This disc captures Rage Against the Machine during touring, in their first performance at Mexico City's Sports Pavilion. The band's support for various political causes in Mexico, especially the anti-government Zapatista movement makes this show very interesting. The band's political propaganda is more than well received with an electric energy that transfers right onto the DVD and into your living-room and should have the CIA very interested indeed. Unfortunately front-man Zack de la Rocha's political agenda is larger than Rage Against the Machine could ever offer. Slam-dancing and stage diving will do nothing to stop neo-liberal globalism, the likes of the I.M.F., and World Bank. Zack's struggle to end the poverty that the current system offers will thankfully take him away from the world of metal heads and crowd surfers to a more diversified audience. I wish him the best of luck. As an added bonus the disc includes interview with political intellectual Noam Chomsky, and revolutionarly leader Marcos.
