One of my absolute favourite bands, so obviously I like their videos as well, being everything from camp, to humourous, weird and cool.
The definitely topped during the late 80s with tracks such as "It's A Sin", "Always On My Mind", "Heart" and "Rent" and have never been able to reach those heights ever since (perhaps with the exception of "Go West").
The DVD-menu/options are as expected - and the commentary part is hilarious, and it also seems as if Chris Lowe and Neil Tennant are enjoying themselves.
For me this is a 10/10, but I guess you have to like them from the start.
