Thousand Foot Krutch
The Flame In All Of Us: Special Edition CD/DVD



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 12 tracks: 47 minutes, 46 seconds + DVD
Street Date: September 18, 2007


Thousand Foot Krutch has never released a DVD before, so when they released The Flame In All of Us in special edition form with a behind the scenes DVD included, it was definitely an easy purchase decision. The band has never been one to let their fans into the world of recording, so it was great to see them open up the way they have on this DVD.

The disc begins with a 25-minute documentary on the recording of their newest album, The Flame In All of Us, and it's quite extensive. From explanations of songs off the record to the new way of jamming they've grown accustomed to, this DVD is chock full of fun and new insight for the band and is a must for any fan. The documentary starts with some explanations of the vision for the record and what kind of changes happened between recording The Art of Breaking and The Flame. The biggest difference between their older records and this new one is that they recorded most of it live off the floor, using vocals in a separate room, but keeping the live instruments all together in one room. The documentary also shows the fun had between the band members and their producer for this record, Ken Andrews. Andrews has two small dogs and they're in so many of the shots of video, getting in the way and just causing a ruckus all the way through, yet the guys in the band just have so much fun with the producer and his way of recording. Among the song explanations is a very personal one of frontman Trevor McNevan's, "My Home." The title of the record is also discussed fully, and the guys explain what instruments they use in great detail.

The second part to the DVD is a tour montage, full of bus pranks and fun on the road, particularly from their tour they just extended, the TobyMac Portable Sounds Tour. The 12-minute behind the scenes includes a tour of the TFK tour bus, complete with a random bag of Pizza Rolls, wrestling between band members in the bus, and just fun stuff that shows how well the guys get along - not to exclude some live footage from the tour. The last bit of the DVD includes two music videos, "Rawkfist" and "Move."

While it would have been nice to see more tour footage than what was given, and maybe the video for "Falls Apart," these things are trivial when a band is only on their first DVD. The disc includes plenty that even the average TFK fan will find to love, and hardcore fans should definitely look to pick up the special edition. The only complaint I would have is that when the pre-orders started, the Special Edition would include two extra songs, but they were cut from the final edition. Unfortunately, now Family Christian has a deal of a third edition, which is the Special Edition with extra songs. So if you haven't picked up The Flame yet, and you're a diehard TFK fan, shame on you for waiting.
