Really, I don't want to use many words here since this review was only triggered by a previous one downgrading the record to 3 stars despite saying "a fun listen and much better recorded than most [live recordings]". This implies that the Dixie Chicks Top of the World Tour would be just mediocre (that's what the middle of 5 stars means) while it is so much better. Said review goes on "The impact of their songs is based on a very emotive vocal style [...] beautifully underpinned by a high level of indiviual playing [...]. That is lost to a great extent" - that's just a lot of tosh. Musicianship and vocals are all there. If you want intimacy then listen to the studio recordings - after all, most of the songs are out there as studio versions, except Mississippi (in an interpretation which would do Bob Dylan proud).

Live is about something else. It's an emotional experience, and here it is perfectly well captured and works well in the stadium context. You can clearly hear that not only the audience had a great time, but so too did the Dixie Chicks themselves. You can feel the elation replacing the worries over possibly being shunned ("You know, they said you wouldn't come...") because of the clear articulation of misgivings for the Bush administration.
Besides, the intro to Truth No. 2, despite only hinting at all the political troubles the girls went through, is a clear indication of growing into women with a mature social-political conscience while still maintaining the chicks' sparkle.
I'd prefer it over any of their studio records any time if I HAD to chose.

Format: Audio CD
The usage of "global tours" to cheaply produce a live recording that will be lapped up by those who attended and many others who think it will be a good introduction to an artiste's overall portfolio of songs, has inevitably led over the years to cynicism by many given they rarely achieve a better quality compared with the original studio recordings. Sadly this double CD set while a fun listen and much better recorded than most does veer towards that failing, especially given that the subtlety and lightness of touch in most of the Dixie Chicks studio recordings does not get improved in any way by the "stadium rock" setting on display here.
The great success of the Dixie Chicks has been in part due to moving the country and western genre from a very stereotyped view of life into a more realistic depiction of what actually happens in the world from a feminine point of view through songs such as "Goodbye Earl", "White Trash Wedding", "Wide Open Spaces" and "Cowboy take me away" . The impact of their songs is based on a very emotive vocal style including the chorus singing, all beautifully underpinned by a high level of indiviual playing especially on the violin and dobro plus outstanding support musicians. That is lost to a great extent on the 22 cuts here given a need to up the electric guitar and percussion elements to suit the larger arenas being played, plus especially on the second CD a need by Natalie Maines to project the lead vocals and with also a lot more audience noise/participation .
If you can acquire it the US DVD release "An evening with the Dixie Chicks" recorded beautifully both visually and audio (5:1 surrund sound) at the more intimate Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles in August 2002 would be a much better buy in seeing how the group can stretch themselves live and enhance their songs in the process.

I bought those CDs after seeing and hearing my favourite song "Hello Mrs Heartache" in concert version.I am a big fan of Chicks not for so long and I did not have those CDs in my collection so far, so now is mine:).I love it, it is great,and was worth to buy it. Beautiful,emotional and powerful songs and amazing voices of Natalie,Martie and Emily. I recommend to every Chicks' fan and not only:).

These two compact discs represent the world tour the band undertook in 2003, entirely live with no overdubs. The songs are from the first three albums plus 'Mississipi' by Bob Dylan.
Excellent live souvenir for anyone who witnessed the band on that tour. Well worth buying.

Not sure why I wasn't a convert to the Dixie Chicks a long time ago, but now I am. This is a great representation of the range of their music and they all look like they're having so much fun, as are the audience. Highly recommended. Enjoy!
