"This video is very well done and is definitly worth getting. If you saw the 'NSA' tour live this year, this video lets you go behind the scenes to see all the blood, sweat and tears that were put into it. It helps you to see that the tour is MUCH more than just 90 minutes of performing. Its weeks and months full of rehearsals and work, and about 10 hours just to put up and take down the stage! I recommend this to any 'Nsync fan!"
It's pretty awesome!

"This is the extended version of the Making The Tour on MTV but it has a lot more funny stuff and it's more interesting. It shows to prove how much *NSYNC work and the creative power they have. A must buy for any "true" *NSYNC fan. You'll enjoy it. I guarantee it!"
This Video Rules!

"This video is the best! You have to buy it if you havent already. It shows more footage than the special on MTV and is much cooler than their first home video."
Stylish, focused; Lots of talk by the 'N Sync members

"A companion video this is to the concert video as written on the cover sleeve. Viewers should own the "Live At Madison Square Garden" video first before they buy this. Shot in a slick MTV fashion, this video presents a lively insight into the various elements that come into the making of the "No Strings Attached" concert. The treatment is step-by-step (sort of like a countdown of days), focused but with its liberal embellishment of short passages of spunky music and tinted photograph sequences of various hues, the viewing never turns too dry. Thoroughout the video, there are numerous close-up interviews done with each member of 'N Sync (often accompanied by a stylish b&W photograph sequence). The production team which include the manager, chereographers and various directors for the music setup and lighting also give brief descriptions of their job scope with regards to the concert. One part of the video you should not miss is when one of the 'N Sync members Joey Fatone takes the viewer on a guided tour around their secluded work place located in the outbacks of Orlando, Florida. It is an amazing, almost unbelievable dream house that has a bowling alley, a golf course, a playground, a pool and of course, the rehersal studio! With its raw footage of 'N Sync rehearsing for the concert plus the close-up interviews, the video inevitably smacks of the TV show "Making the Band". The video, however, delivers what the title says; it never quite strays onto non-concert issues as such it seems to be lacking in emotional aspects (no heartwarming visits from friends or phone calls to worried mothers). At the end of it all, what the video really does show to the viewer is how hard the guys have worked, to put on a successful concert. In fact, as a culmination of all the hard work, their efforts are represented by two Live performances taken from the concert.Unfortunately they had to use the concert footage from the Madison Square Garden video as the two Live performances here. What a shame - did the makers of this video actually expect people who buy this title not to buy the concert video as well? Could have given some footage from TV shows or at least footage from other concert venues. In addition to the live performances, there are 3 music videos - Its Gonna Be Me, Bye Bye Bye and This I Promise You. The order seemed a bit wierd as Bye Bye Bye came out before the rest of the songs, yet it was placed 2nd on the list. "I'll Never Stop" is missing.Though the material of the video seemed a tad too confined, the MTV-style of direction more than makes up for that flaw. Fans will also get to hear a lot of talk from 'N Sync members."
A "Must-See" for 'N Sync fans and music fans alike

"I have an admission to make. Yes, I am a huge fan of 'N Sync and yes, that is the main reason I bought this DVD. But I am also a fan of music and this 'business we call show' as well, so the content of the DVD itself was also of great interest. To see all the hard work that the guys put into 'making the tour' look so effortless on stage really is an eye opener. If you have a friend or family member who wants to get into this business because they think it looks glamourous, get them to watch this, 'cause it ain't. Seeing the boys being told off by their choreographer two days before the show opens for messing up their choreography is one of the least fun, but most real moments.The behind the scenes moments with the guys are a lot of fun to watch, my personal fave being Justin making the comment during a meeting in which they were trying to decide the set list for the tour that he didn't think they should do Bye Bye Bye 'because nobody likes it'. The bonus music videos are also cool, but if you're like me you've already taped them off the TV!The thing I liked least about this DVD was that I found it a little too 'MTV' in some places. While we still saw a heck of a lot, there were some of the more nitty gritty things about putting the tour that that were glossed over. But that is a personal thing on my behalf.All in all, I loved this DVD. It was informative and funny and showed the guys as the EXTREMELY hard working and ambitious young men they are. It also shows how much 'N Sync care and think about their fans when they put a show together. They give their all, from designing the stage, to 16 hour days of nothing but dancing, to bring their fans the best show possible, and with this DVD, we have the proof."
