'Archive:d' is the ultimate retrospective DVD for a fan of Delirious?'s career so far. Featuring as it does the "A View From The Terraces" and "Pro:Mode" videos, as well as the visuals from 2001's Fire Tour, along with biographical information on each of the band members, all dressed up with snazzy, futuristic menu presentation. Some fans who already purchased both videos may quibble, but that quibble is a minor one. The ability to seamlessly flick through "A View From The Terraces" and marvel at the passion, the songs, the excitement and the hair from 1997 is one to make the most of, and having all of Delirious?'s videos up to the 'Audio Lessonover' album is a very convenient option for the devoted fan. This is definitely a package designed with fans in mind. Anyone who had an interest in Delirious? circa 1997 should definitely check this out, and for the uninitiated, this is as good a place as any to start. A fine scrapbook of their brightest moments up to 2001.
