"I Need You" feels like a throwback to the days of Mellencamp; it just makes me want to go buy some fireworks, celebrate everything American, and eat some apple pie.

The DVD serves as a perfect companion to the live CD. It's one thing to hear Madonna perform live, but it is quite another to see the talented performer breathe new life into her songs.

Friday, 30 June 2006 18:00The Greatest Videos is a perfect time capsule of 1990, at that perfect moment where the Poisons and the Mötley Crües began to topple, but just before everyone began to wear plaid.
Friday, 30 June 2006 18:00Like all concert films, it takes away a bit of your ability to pick and choose what to watch on stage, but the DVD offers an invigorating show. If you liked the album, you will love the show; for the rest of you, there is still much to offer.
