So, Finnish goth rockers H.I.M. are really huge in Europe. They've sold a whole whack of albums, and lead singer/songwriter Ville Valo seems to be a bit of a heartthrob. I guess it would only makes sense to give the fans more of what they want, which in this case is a five-hour-long DVD music video with live performances, interview clips, bios, etc, etc. And while it's nice for über-fans to have an untold wealth of footage, after a while H.I.M. (His Infernal Majesty, in case you were wondering), aren't as compelling on screen as they may have hoped. And that's not to mention that it sounds like Valo overdosed on the Cure, Depeche Mode and Edgar Allan Poe as a teen.
As for the music videos themselves, they're quite nice to look at - lots of stylized shots and neo-gothic imagery, and a few graveyards for good measure. But it's hard to take someone like Valo that seriously, with his tortured-soul posturing in video after video. Again, though, there are enough extras, like multiple live performances of the same tunes, to keep fans happy. Casual viewers might just scratch their heads and laugh.
