3.0 out of 5 stars
Forgive her, for she has sinned..., 29 Jan. 2007
Now please don't get me wrong, this concert is absolutely sensational. I was lucky enough to have seen Madonna perform her mind-boggling show in London last year - and the way that this DVD has been filmed really manages to convey the excitement and energy surrounding the (quite frankly) exhausting performance by the Queen of rock, pop and just about all things musical.
The reason I've given this DVD / CD set a lowly 3 stars is because of the distinct lack of effort that has been put into creating the finished product. Please compare this (and her previous live 'set' 'I'm going to tell you a secret') with Kylie's last two concert releases. Miss Minogue and her label give us documentaries, the complete show on DVD and CD, backdrop videos, bonuses etc, etc. It's like they know what the fans really want - and aim to give it to them.
Yet again Madonna fans are short-changed - with a bare bones release, precious few extras, a poorly chosen tracklist for the accompanying CD (come on, 'confessions' and the 'sorry' remix were great in the context of the show but I'm sure we'd all prefer 'Live To Tell' or 'La Isla' on the audio CD!!!!) Where are the videos for the singles from confessions?, where are the multi camera angles?, an option to play the stunning filmed intro on it's own and so on....
By all means buy this release because the concert itself is truly phenomenal and very well transferred to the screen...but continue to be disappointed in Warners treatment of Madonna 'the product' and her ladyship's own seeming lack of desire to give the fans what they really really want.
