Some pretty good music here. You will love it if you're young and into pop music or you have children who are.

"I am a HUGE Jesse fan and i was excited to see a DVD out of him. I went to the store and flipped to the back of the DVD to see what was on it. I saw 5 different sections: Music Videos (5), Live Studio Performances (6), Behind the Scenes (boring), In Depth Interviews (Taiwan one was funny), and Bonus Music (1). So that won me over. I pop it into my DVD and I am shocked, 3 of the videos are NOT full length! These include: "Because You Live", "Good Life" and "She's No You - Special Performance Video". I never saw the full length of any of these (even though clips of "Good Life" and "She's No You" was show on the Show Summerland). The clips of "Because You Live" is excellent and would easily have bacame my favorite video if the whole thing was shown (the whole video was close ups of Jesse from the shoulder up - yum), now my second grief.
The "Bonus Music" section is terrible. They play the remix to "She's No You" to a SLIDESHOW of the "She's No You" video and some of the pictures are not that great, like at a girl in the coffee shop or a blurry picture of the bike part.
The "Behind The Scenes" part was kind of boring. Also, the audio on the part about "Beautiful Soul" is pretty bad. I wish they would have closed captioned it. The part on "Get Your Shine On" was okay- I just wish they could have put the whole video in the "Music Video" section. The only good part was the part about the video "She's No You". Did you know they had to cancel their first day of shooting because of snow? Well, you can find this out and more on this section of the DVD.
"In Depth Interviews". I don't remember all of them, but one stands out in my head; Taiwan interview. At this point while I was watching this (I'm 18) my parents started watching with me-and they were laughing out loud. It was so funny Jesse seemed a little out of place in the interview and every once in a while, the interviewer would break out into translating what he said in English to an Asian language. It is very unexpected, which is why it's pretty funny. You have to get the DVD just to see that part.
"Live Studio Performances" was one of the best parts of the DVD. I have 2 things to note about this section: one there are two "Sessions@Aol" performances (Beautiful Soul and She's No You), which you can get for FREE on aolmusic.com and they seemed the weakest of Jesse's vocals.The second thing is there is one called "Blackbird-Stripped Raw and Real". I never heard this song before and it seemed a little short. I don't know if that's how long the song really is or if I got jipped again like in the "Music Video" sections.
In conclusion, this is nowhere near a perfect DVD. Even the best Jesse fan (unless age 10 and under) will not be 100% satisfied after watching the complete DVD (around an hour long). I hope the makers of this DVD will try to fix some of my above complaints for any future music DVD trys.
Good but not great
