Overall, though, my main gripe would be the noise in the images of almost all of the videos, although it's by no means too intrusive.
There was only one video on this release that I really enjoyed watching - Steve McQueen - for me the rest are forgettable at best and at worst actually detract from the aural experience - just take a gander at A Change Would Do You Good - shot in black and white and filmed in reverse at times it comes across as simply freaky, man! On the whole I found the videos a bit of a distraction and even the attractive Ms. Crow couldn't hold my attention at times.
Ultimately, though, it's the audio that saves the day here. I like nothing more than to know that my system is being allowed to express itself. Just have a listen to Everyday Is A Winding Road. Now I don't really like this song, it's just too droning and depressive-sounding for me. However, I do like what it does to my system! Bass is nice and deep, but never overblown, whilst the treble is handled sweetly and not at all shrill or overly intrusive.
So, audio quality is very good whilst picture-wise things are satisfactory. If you're a die-hard Sheryl Crow fan I'm sure you'll be happy with this purchase, but for anybody else perhaps the C.D. version would be a better bet.
