Wonderboyz
12 January 2004 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

These guys are funny. The thing that really makes this double DVD great, though, is the talent Kyle and Jack possess. You'll be hard-pressed to find a frontman as vigorous as JB. He is humorous, but also positively intense. He has a remarkable vocal range. Kyle's guitar work is highly commendable as well.

The episodes from HBO and other exploits on the DVD are worthwhile, but not as enjoyable for me as the concert. I do recommend this DVD in its entirety. Anyone who dislikes the use of the "f" word may not agree with me.
