The way the concert was edited for this DVD is interesting. A lot of "tricks" were used to make the visuals much more exciting... like imposing the background screen images over what was going on on stage, also using effects like slow-mo at just the right moments. Had we had one still camera looking at Madonna things wouldn't have seemed as fun. Still though, the editing is welcome for entertainment purposes.
Also considering Madonna is not exactly known to have the best live voice ever, it's rather suspicious that all along the concert she maintains a perfect pitch. The cool kids call it "re-mastering" nowadays. Oh well.
But hey, that put aside, this is just a fun concert to watch. The 2 hour show focuses mostly on the songs from Hard Candy, Madonna's R&B influenced album met with mixed reviews. See the Queen of Pop shake her white bootay to Candy Shop, The Beat Goes On, 4 Minutes, Give it 2 Me, Spanish Lesson and more with a crew of phenomenal dancers, lighting effects, and a bunch of energy consuming stuff going on. Also many of Madonna's big hits from all times took a new spin here which was a nice surprise. Songs like Music, Hung Up, Ray of Light, Borderline, Into the Groove, Like a Prayer and Vogue all were here and took some sort of welcome new spin to them.
Madonna seemed to enjoy herself a lot during the show, and at her 50s she is still jumping around like a schoolgirl which says quiet a bit about her physical condition. It's a joy to see this woman on stage and while some would regard that her previous tour was better, which I can't deny, this show is just too fun to dismiss.
This pack also includes a CD which has some tracks from the concert. The selection for the CD is rather weird. They omitted many good tracks. But I guess it's a nice bonus.
The DVD is incredibly well-shot offering a near-perfect view of the show. The audio is very good too. It seems some of the audio has been corrected in the studio to give a more even feel (perhaps to correct any off notes or something of that nature). It's almost as good as being there, though nothing compares to the magic of the actual experience of being there.
"Vogue", "She's Not Me", "Music 2008", "Devil Wouldn't Recognize You", "La Isla Bonita", the two Evita songs, and "Like A Prayer" are some of my favorite performances even though I enjoyed all of them.
The accompanying CD is a nice addition featuring just some of the songs as they appear in the DVD.
This is a must-have for any Madonna concert enthusiasts.
While this show isn't quite as theatrical as her past shows, she doesn't disappoint. I LOVE the new versions of old classics. Nothing "tired" or "old" about it. Music 2008, La Isla Bonita 2008, and especially Like a Prayer 2008 and Vogue 2008 are, in my opinion, fantastic. In fact, I love that she sang so many classic songs at this concert (which is good because although I am a life-long Madonna fan, I didn't really go crazy for "Hard Candy".)
The only thing that could have made it better would have been if the guest appearances by Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears was shown. Hearing the crowd go nuts when they appeared on the stage gave me goose bumps!
The added Bonus Features are great too. It's always cool to get a sneak peak at the behind the scenes action and and to see what incredible work goes into preparing for one of Madonna's elaborate shows. And having the live cd is fantastic.
If you didn't get to see the live show then don't miss out, buy the DVD/CD. And even if you did see the live show, buy it anyway so you can re-live the experience. I will never forget the moment the crowd cheered and went wild when the newly elected Obama's face came up on the big screen (not featured in this version of the show) Nor will I forget the nearly 3 hours (normally a 20 minute drive from where I was) it took to get to the show, because of the gay and lesbian rights protest going on in Hollywood that night.
A fun, lively and fresh concert!
