AllMusic Review by

Naomi and Wynonna reunited and recorded in concert on December 31, 1999, i.e. the cusp of the new Millennium (the audience countdown comes just before the show-closing ballad "Freedom"). All their big hits are gathered here, along with a generous helping of songs from Wynonna's solo albums, including her hit single "Can't Nobody Love You (Like I Do)" and a cover of the Fabulous Thunderbirds' "Tuff Enuff."

Along with the music, which is performed with the duo's customary high-gloss precision and old-fashioned showmanship, there's also an understandably sentimental introductory speech by actress/little sister Ashley Judd, the obligatory scripted-sounding mother-daughter banter, and some homespun philosophizing by Naomi, who opines, "The best way to predict the future is to create it." Amen.
