"I very much enjoyed this DVD. I was apprehensive after reading some of the other reviews. I listened to both the DD 5.1 and the DTS audio (both of which are included on this disk) and I will admit the DD 5.1 sounded a little thin compared to the DTS. The DTS sounded excellent, however. Other reviews try and compare this to the Eagles Hell Freezes Over DVD, I don't think that is a reasonable comparison. The Eagles uses a much more aggressive 5.1 mix while this show uses a more conservative mix. The DTS sound on this disk is deep and rich and uses the front 3 channels quite well; the rear channels are used primarily for reverb effect. The DD 5.1 did sound a little thin and lacked the bass response of the DTS.Overall, if you like Sheryl Crow you should get this disk. If you are looking for a special effects laden aggressive mix that has the guitar coming out of the rear left channel and the backing singers out of the rear right channel while the vocals whip across the front three channels this is not for you."
Great Concert DVD, But DTS Lacking

"As a huge Sheryl Crow fan, I bought this DVD on release day. I really enjoyed the disc - the concert was excellent. Sheryl rocked (as always), and the video shots and camera angles were very well done (there are some nice shots of people in the crowd up front singing along with Sheryl). My only disappointment was with the DTS audio track. While it sounded good, it just didn't seem to take full advantage of DTS. I may be spoiled by other DTS DVD concert titles I have (most notably, Hell Freezes Over by the Eagles - an incredible example of DTS surround sound), but the sound stage on this DTS DVD seemed a bit flat to me. That was the only reason I gave this DVD 4 stars instead of five. Still, all in all, an excellent DVD that I am very glad I purchased."

"While I am a big Sheryl Crow fan, I was disappointed in the absence of extras that make DVD so enjoyable. Though I am not as much of a fan of Sarah McClachlan, the producers of "Rockin' the Globe" could take a lesson from the "Mirrorball" folks, who absolutely packed that DVD to the gills. If you're simply a fan of Crow's music, this will certainly satisfy. If you're looking for a little more bang for your DVD buck then you're sure to be disappointed."
Worthy of repeated watching

"Sheryl Crow and her band are presented in fine form on this DVD. The band is not just backing her up, they are solidly playing WITH her. They are obviously very well rehearsed with tight playing all around. Sheryl's voice is top notch, and the drummer's subtle background vocals are right on. The video is presented without the all-too-often "special effects" some live concert films just can't stay away from. The camera work is very good, the picture is clear and sharp, and it appears (to me) that there are no over-dubs or voice-overs. The audio track (DTS) is accurate, and you sound like you're there, especially when played very loud. The only minor bummer is the occasional audience shot. They're all suffering from jet-lag or something. Perhaps they weren't selling alcohol at the show. I find myself playing this disc over and over, and this is a great disc to show off your system. Even if your just a marginal fan of Sheryl Crow, this show will win you over."
A Wonderful performer

"If anyone has seen THE GLOBE SESSIONS tour, this is a carbon copy of it. The song sellections are the same as the concerts I saw in Chicago and it is GREAT to have this available on DVD. This is a concert from Detroit and Sheryl just simply knows how to give a great performance. Video image is top notch along with the audio quality. The version of AM I GETTING THROUGH is simply ELECTRIFYING ! A MUST have for dedicated fans of Ms Crow."
