I bought the DVD of the movie and the CD of the sound track.
J. Hahn
While one never knows how sloppy a live Stones album will be, this was a very pleasant surprise.
Matt Byrd
The guest performances include Jack White on "Loving Cup" and he does a great job.

The Rolling Stones have released many live recordings throughout the years and none of them have ever been 'bad' but the problem has been that, other than YA YA'S, they haven't been 'great'. They range from being merely 'good' to 'very good' and never quite live up to the reality of actually being there. The large stadium atmosphere just never translated to CD very well. Before you say "OH NO, NOT ANOTHER LIVE ALBUM FROM THE STONES", it is important to note that 'Shine a Light' really seems to benefit from playing the smaller and much more intimate venue at the Beacon in NYC. The performances are tighter as the band was able to concentrate more on the construction of the songs as opposed to playing the crowd in those (too) large venues. It almost feels as if the band went back and listened to what originally made these songs so good to begin with and took it from there. This is definitely their best live recording, next to YA YA'S!!

The disc has a good combination of the old warhorses (Jumping Jack Flash, Start Me Up, Sympathy..etc) and some not-so-often-performed songs (As Tears Go By, She Was Hot, Connection) and all of them catch the band playing at a latter day peak. The Stones still enjoy what they do and it is evident in this performance. The guest performances include Jack White on "Loving Cup" and he does a great job. However, the Buddy Guy appearance on "Champagne and Reefer" is pure blues heaven and Christina Aguilera actually rocks out on "Live With Me".

The one disappointment I did have was Keith's solo on "Sympathy" just wasn't up to snuff. I never considered him to be a great soloist anyway (his gift is rhythm) but he sounded as if he didn't know where he wanted to go with it. Other than that his playing is nothing but inspired.

In the spotlight of Martin Scorsese's camera crew, the boys try to out play each other with spectacular results. The band runs through the same old hits out of respect for the audience, but also performs rare "live" gems for the hardcore fans. As usual, the boys play a tribute song to one of the old masters, this time, its Muddy Water's "Champagne and Reefer". Guest appearances by Christina Aguilera, Buddy Guy, and Jack White inspire Mick Jagger's sense of humor in the form of insults. Christina shines on "Live with Me"; Jack White appears on "Loving Cup"; and Buddy Guy highlights "Champagne and Reefer". "Some Girls" and "Faraway Eyes" all showcase Jagger's sense of humor. The band, thanks to the steady hands of Charlie Watts and Daryl Jones, the weaving guitars of Ronnie and Richard's, never sounded better. The bass player, instead of looking for [...] in the audience, like Bill Wyman used to do, concentrates on leaving a a straight track for the band to roll. It's buried in the mix, but a big, subtle improvement. The Stones have outdone themselves.

I first saw this at the IMAX theater and what an experience it was. It's better than front row seats to a concert. The cinematography was amazing. The song selection was awesome. The interviews were delightful. The Stones at their very best, as always. Hats off to Scorsese for an exceptional film. Rock on, Stones !!!

There's very little here that hasn't been heard before, live or otherwise, and yet this recording has captured the magic of the Rolling Stones with a vibrant freshness that's a lot of fun to listen to. This recording will be in my music rotation for a while.

Keith sings and you can understand him. Some different live songs, and Jack White sings on Loving Cup. If you are a middle aged rock fan, try White Stripes if you want to feel like you're still in touch with something from this century, although I later heard it in the Safeway supermarket. Anyway, Keith sings Connection, and Christine Agguilerra sings on Live with Me. The standards, Jumpin Jack Flash, Brown Sugar, but well worth the ride. I'm singing along on the beltway with it!

While one never knows how sloppy a live Stones album will be, this was a
very pleasant surprise. Mick's vocals are very powerful. Some of Keith's playing is, as usual, a bit off, but one can still feel "funkiness". Standouts are the duet with Jack White on Loving Cup and Girl with Faraway Eyes. Whether you are a younger fan or old timer, this will be enjoyed!
