AllMusic Review by

Once Full Moon Fever had run its course on the charts in 1990, Full Moon Fever: The Videos was released. Containing a mere five music videos -- "I Won't Back Down," "Runnin' Down a Dream," "Free Fallin'," "A Face in the Crowd," "Yer So Bad" -- the video (released on VHS and laserdisc) is a perfect example of the "video EP," a cheap collection of music videos targeted at casual consumers who never wound up purchasing them. Full Moon Fever: The Videos is especially strange, considering that the video EP had run its course by 1990, but it does offer several great videos, including a handful that never were released on any larger collection, which makes it valuable for collectors -- who were the only likely people to pick this up in the first place.
