Not surprising, given Springsteen's reputation as a live performer and the sheer scope of the song set, most reviews were overwhelmingly positive. There were, however, a few critics that felt the album could have been better, citing the omission of several concert highlights such as Springsteen's live rendition of " Prove It All Night " and his rousing cover of John Fogerty 's " Who'll Stop the Rain ", among others.
