Madonna's souvenir of her 2012/2013 world tour is her fourth live album and, like so many live albums from the new millennium, it is a multi-media spectacle that perhaps would make more sense as an at-home video experience than an aural adventure. That said, there are unexpected musical moments that do make MDNA World Tour worth hearing: "Like a Virgin" is spun into a waltz, "Like a Prayer" is given a dark disco makeover, and there is a general enthusiasm for Madge's newest material, as evidenced by the emphasis on MDNA and Confessions on a Dance Floor material in the set list. This concentration on newer material does mean this is a live album for the dedicated, but that is true for any live album released three decades into an artist's career. It boils down to this: if you think you're interested in hearing the MDNA World Tour, the nerviness of this performance is just enough to make your investment of time worthwhile. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
