  1. “My gosh- I have just received this album through the generosity of the most wonderful man… and it is about the best I have heard Don do! As for live albums.. Don is an absolute master at them, and I thought NOTHING could top Solo or Dominion, but in my opinion this one is even better. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. A thoroughly delightful album, with a WONDERFUL range of his music. His voice is excellent, the music wonderful, and I LOVE the parts where he just speaks with the audience! He&#39s such a talented performer, and that shines through SO well in this album- I wish wish wish that I could give it more than five out of fove- it deserves a million!! Ecstasy ecstasy ecstasy!! (Rated 5 out of 5)”

  2. “I got this album as a gift. I purposely did not buy this because of the bad reviews I read. To say the least, this is not Don Mclean at his best and pales in comparison with Solo or his performance in the video The Music of Don Mclean Live in Concert. The duet with Nanci Griffith was very disappointing and is probably the lowest point in the album not to mention the worst rendition of And I love You So that I have ever heard. I also don&#39t understand why there were two takes of Castles in the Air in the album. There are, however, some good performances in here, among them Homeless Brother, Winterwood, If We Try and Headroom/Dreidel. I&#39ve always admired Don&#39s music and his singing but this album is not in the same class as his previous releases and performances. (Rated 2 out of 5)”

  3. “Vincent is one of the most synestesic songs I know, a sensitive blend of images feelings and words where the senses are interweaved in harmony and dispair and hope for a better humanity (Rated 5 out of 5)”

  4. “I love this album, especially “”Vincent””, with the slower tempo than the studio version. It brought me to tears this morning on the way to work, playing it three times, as I have suffered a string of evil women golddiggers and can relate to the lyrics: “”For they could not love you . . . but still your love was true . . .”” and I would have taken my own life long ago, if not for my faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Keep them coming, Don! (Rated 5 out of 5)”

  5. “It&#39s absolutely a good double-CD! I like it very much! The American Pie is too wonderful! It&#39s really good! If you are a Don Mclean fan, you didn&#39t buy it, you&#39ve missed it. (Rated 5 out of 5)”

  6. vincent (starry starry night) was introduced to me by a good friend and the song and artwork that goes with it means alot to me. (Rated 5 out of 5)

  7. “I have never heard such a wonderful song.and so do Don&#39s excellent voice.
    I&#39m studying painting now, and i worship the ground Vincent treads on. (Rated 5 out of 5)”

  8. Sou brasileira e fiquei impressionada com a qualidade das musicas desse cantor. Realmente estou perplexa. Parabens! (Rated 5 out of 5)

  10. “Eines der besten Lieder die ich in meinem Leben gehört habe (Starry Starry Night) macht dieses Album zu einem der Besten.
    Keep going!!! (Rated 5 out of 5)”

  11. “Dieses ist das schönste Album in der Welt u. ist er, ja? sehr reizvoll! Ich liebe anziehe u. mögen niemand, der sie sagt, nicht dieses Album ist solch ein Dummkopf. Ich töte sie. Sowieso Liebe, die Sie Sie Amerika anziehen, lieben! (Rated 5 out of 5)”

  12. “I really, really admire Don&#39s songwriting and artistic ability, but this album was so poor as to make me think I had a one-of off mix. I bought the 2 CD set, not the video. Don sounds off-mike the whole time, the instruments are all foreground too heavily, and his guest singer sounds like she&#39s had a one too many drinks before stepping up to the mic. To end it all, the band did a vamp on Vincent that was of extremely poor taste. I have several of Don&#39s albums and really like them, but this one brought tears to my eyes for the wrong reasons. (Rated 1 out of 5)”

  13. “The mix of this album could have been done better. Dido on the mastering. All those caveats aside, the music is pretty damn good.
    I wish the orchestra wasn&#39t replaced by a synthesizer due to technical problems.
    “”Homeless Brother”” sounds great as does “”Superman&#39s Ghost””.
    I think Don McLean deserves a box set. Who&#39s with me? (Rated 5 out of 5)”

  14. “Vincen or Starry Starru Night is the most beautiful song in the worl; to me it has so much meening, Thank you to Don who has mad it very special (Rated 5 out of 5)”
