"As a video document of a performance, Voodoo Lounge beats Bridges To Babylon, or Live At The Max. Despite not being in 5.1, the DVD captures the raw excitement and swagger of the Stones in Concert and is better paced than the other two. Plus, you get Bo Diddley in the bargain. I own all three and attended a Bridges concert, but the Voodoo Lounge DVD is the one I return to."
Not bad at all!

"This being the first tour the Rolling Stones did without the irreplaceable Bill Wyman, I, as a bass player myself, was SERIOUSLY interested (and somewhat jealous, in truth) to see how Darryl Jones would do. Well, he did excellantly, just fine. And as to the video itself, Whoopie Goldberg is always a treat - just dig her in the "singalong chorus" of "Sweet Virginia"! The Stones themselves don't sound at ALL bad for 50+ year old men, either. The cameos are a hoot, too: Bo Diddly absolutely STEALS THE SHOW when he & the Stones Jam on "Who Do You Love." Robert Cray, though, proves he is a gentleman, when, just listen, HE'S the only one who prevents "Stop Breakin' Down" from doing exactly THAT. The band doesn't "get it together" until about halfway through the first chorus. And I have two major gripes about the show: first, "Miss You" (I song I could go for the rest of eternity without having to endure) lasts about 10 minutes - 7.5 minutes TOO LONG, to be exact. And on "Honky Tonk Women," the Stones give the the late, great Ian Stewart the ultimate insult by allowing "auxillary keyboardist" Chuck Leavell to take a piano solo. Keef's song is kind of....eh, but the animated introduction to "Sympathy For The Devil" makes up for a lot of...things. ("Voodoo Lounge"....yeah)
Yup, this shows that you don't have to be a 22 year old kid playing a guitar that looks (and sounds) like a Thalidomide baby to do "Rock and Roll" anymore. Long live the Stones!"
VERY GOOD, BUT NOT THE BEST

"To say that the Voodoo Lounge tour was the Stones' best is a strecth, but this is a good concert film. The picture quality is dull and faded. It looks sort of foggy. The sound quality is not that great. The screams are louder than the band! The special guests is interesting. Out of the two special guests Robety Cray is the best one. I have seen him once. If you are a die-hard fan (as I am) this video is something you should have. If you are the casual fan, you should get "Live at the Max." All in all, this is a cool film"
Stones bring Voodoo magic back to touring

"Those of you who were at the Thanksgiving concert will know that this concert went for a LOT longer than 95 minutes, and what a killer set list it was !!Where as the Bridges to Babylon concert was left uncut, this Voodoo Lounge performance is pretty much butchered. Great songs like "Monkey Man","Beast Of Burden","Before they Make Me Run","Live With Me" (guest vocals: Sheryl Crow !) and quite a few others deserved to be kept for this release. Hopefully the awesome HBO Madison Suare Gardens concert in January 2003(40 Licks tour) will be released uncut like the Babylon DVD.Still, what remains is a good looking concert, and shows the Stones proving they can keep up the pace post-Steel Wheels. This DVD would've gotten a higher rating if the full concert had been included with 5.1 surround sound though."
Great Concert...Average Sound

"This is Mick strutting it at his best.....I only wish that it was recorded/released in Dolby 5.1...then it would get 5 stars."
