  Splendid: Departments: &: Kill Rock Stars Video Fanzine III
It's unfortunate, but not entirely surprising, that the qualities that have endeared the Kill Rock Stars/5 Rue Christine axis to indie music fans are the same qualities that hold them back when it comes time to make a video.
So, although Kill Rock Stars Video Fanzine III is consistent with the general vibe of the label's catalogue, fans should not feel even a little two-faced if they find that it just doesn't do it for them.
Kill Rock Stars and 5RC are disproportionately endowed with talented musicians, but only the most obsessive of the labels' followers -- the people who actually own Gravy Train!!!!'s discography in full -- should even consider tossing down money for this mediocre DVD.

I like indie rock just as much as the next hipster, and I own my share of Kill Rock Stars records, however I found this compilation very mediocre overall.
