"First of all, I'd like to point out that this is a product, don't write reviews about what you think it'll be like, or whether or not you like the artist, ok, that's really not rating the product. Secondly, I'm gonna go over the whole dvd & what it consists. The DVD part of My World consists of a her live performance Try To Shut Me Up Tour in Buffalo NY. She plays 16 songs in this order:
1. Sk8er Boi
2. Nobody's Fool
4. Anything But Ordinary
5. Losing Grip
7. Too Much to Ask
8. I Don't Give
9. Basket Case(Green Day cover)
10. My World
11. I'm With You
15. Knockin' On Heavens Door
16. Thing's I'll Never Say She plays Mobile, Naked & Thing's I'll Never Say on electric guitar & Tomorrow on acoustic. Evan solos while Avril sings on Knockin' On Heavens Door, & they both play acoustic for Tomorrow & Avril obviously sings it. Avril's Cut is the behind-scenes featurette with features of Sk8er Boi, Japan, Losing Grip, Fuel, Complicated & more. Outtakes is a bunch of funny things they do, like going on a Roller Coaster with a crazy guy, brushing Avril's teeth, etc. 5 Music Videos including: Complicated, Sk8er Boi, I'm With You, Losing Grip & Knockin' On Heavens Door. A Photo Gallery consisting 28 photos, live pictures from her performances, very nifty. Gear includes pics of her shirts, keychains, a poster, etc. & message about joining her club, that's it. Third & last, it's the 6 song CD consisting of her performances of: Fuel(on MTV icon), Basket Case(live), Unwanted(live), Sk8er Boi(live), Knockin' On Heavens Door(live) & includes the song Why, which is featured on the Complicated single. It's a great buy, any Avril fans should enjoy it! As you know she doesn't lip synch any of her songs, she is awesome live, they edited the performance a bit, like the screening part & it's amazing the effects they added, it's truly an awesome performance. I felt like I was there, Thing's I'll Never Say was an awesome way to end the performance, probably the best song she performed, & my favourite off the album. GO & GET IT NOW!! I command you too. No I don't, it's great, buy it."
One of my fave music dvd's

"What a great DVD! I've never seen an Avril Lavigne concert before buying this DVD, but now I can't wait for her to tour again, because she's great. She sings live throughout, and puts on an excellent performance. Even more amazing when you consider that she's still a teenager!. The concert is filled with energy, and you'll soon be cranking up the volume on your tv. Of course it helps that the only album's worth of material she has out, is brilliant to start off with. There are no "fillers" on the "Let go" album, so not surprisingly Avril performs the entire album here. All of your favorites are here, from the massive hit "Complicated" to an acoustic version of "Tomorrow". On top of the album tracks, there are also some more great songs, including "I don't give", "Knockin' on heaven's door" and a fantastic cover of Green Day's hit "Basketcase". The concert lasts for about 70 minutes, is a sheer joy to watch from start to finish.As if that wasn't enough, there are also some other awesome extras that make this a must-have DVD!. Firstly you get all of Avril's music videos, a great 40 min (approx) behind-the-scenes documentary following her around on tour, some outtakes, a photo gallery, AND a 6-track audio cd!. What more could you ask for?.This DVD/CD release is amazing value for money. Its great that Arista have put everything a fan could want onto one DVD, rather than trying to make more money by releasing the music videos separately on another DVD or something. For me this is worth the money just for the concert itself, so everything else is a great bonus. With a superb debut album and now DVD under her belt, I can't wait for Avril's next album."
Better and Better!

"The live performance part of this DVD really shows off Avril's style. It seems clear that the editing was kept to minimum and this has enhanced the live quality of the performance. The 5.1 surround is great and also so adds to the live feel. The backstage piece also works well and it would seem that Avril is not afraid let her fans see the real backstage antics of the band. Road tours are always tiring and hard on the performers and you can see a little of this also. Liked the Japan clip but am wondering how it ended up on the North American Tour! The DVD also has five videos on it with Knocking on Heavens Door as the only new one. The CD is also a nice added bonus and makes for a great listen. This is the perfect fan collection thanks Avril!"
Way to much Avril for your buck! Great Buy!

"I had purchased this based on the Amazon.com reviews, and I completely enjoyed this CD, it has everything from concert, but then you have videos, and behind the scenes, it seems like the DVD never ends, and I will just say if your avril fan or have been to one of her concerts as I have, this is something to help you relive the talent she displays. She doesn't lip sync, she is just wonderful. parents may if for younger kinds under the age of ten may want to preview some of behind the scenes stuff as there is a hint of language and acts of spitting that may be a bit much for some parents for younger kids. Now my only grips and why I did not give it a 5... The effects used on postproduction of the concert footage gives the effect that your DVD is skipping some video frames, there is sudden pauses that are in my opinion undesireable or distracting, everyone I showed the video too said is there scratches or id my DVD player acting up. But its truly the way they designed it, and its not objectionable, but I think it would have been better to avoid that effect. Also the way they tracked out the DVD, its very hard to go back to that certain scene cause I found there was a few particular scenes I wanted to bounce back to after watching it and knowing where it is and lots of fast forwadring where I think they could have brokensome of the tracks down in further detail of the back state stuff as there is multiple areas of similar footage. all in all still 4 solid stars, the content is awesome."
