Band documentary DVDs can be hit and miss affairs. It usually simply comes down to the question of whether you like the band being documented or not, as to whether you’ll find the film worthy or not. And such is the case here.
The makers of Seems Like Forever have obviously decided not to stray outside the regular rock documentary approach by one iota. Which is both good and bad, depending on what you are looking for. If you are not a fan of this band, and are looking for a slightly different take on this genre of film making, look elsewhere.
If you are a big fan, and are looking for a definitive history of them, then this DVD is definitely for you. It starts at the beginning, with the band members telling of how they got into playing music, tells their story chronologically, including their trials and tribulations, line-up changes, albums, tours etc. and finishes with their last tour.
And that’s it. Simple and straight to the point storytelling. Fans of TAA will lap this up.
