Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Bill Pearis
Anton Corbijn first made his name as a rock photographer in the late '70s -- his stark images of post-punk legends Joy Division are nearly as iconic as the band's music -- but it wasn't long before he branched into the new field of music videos. This collection, part of the ongoing Director's Label series, showcases some of Corbijn's best work from his 20-plus years in the medium. While his almost exclusively black-and-white work with Echo & the Bunnymen, U2, and Depeche Mode helped define both Corbijn and those bands in the '80s, it's the oversaturated color -- colorized from black-and-white, actually -- he used in Nirvana's "Heart Shaped Box" video for which he may be best known. Other classic Corbijn clips featured here are the Rollins Band's "Liar," the spaghetti-western fantasy that is Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus," and Joy Division's haunting "Atmosphere." Bonus features include commentary from many of the bands featured -- Ian McCulloch describes watching the Bunnymen's 1984 video for "Seven Seas" as "Cringe City" -- plus a gorgeous 56-page book with interviews and exclusive art, and more.
