The CD audio apparently suffers from excessive compression, but not the BD audio. Goes for about $30 at Amazon. If someone finds this cheaper elsewhere, please tell. I saw on TV their New Year's Eve performance and it was quite a spectacle. Unfortunately the reviews for the video complain about the hyperactive dizzying visual cuts that mar most live video releases today. When will these folks realize that less is more when it comes to audio equalization or concert video panning (or live concert audio for that matter)?

Best price so far. Thanks. Was hoping that PopMarket would have a deal, but it doesn't seem likely anytime soon.

Got the BD and it is quite a visual spectacle to behold. Probably the most colorful concert that I have seen on video thus far, with the audience LED bracelets flashing in sync with the beat and colored paper confetti swirling about and day-glo colors. Like most concert videos today the video editing suffers from ADHD flashing dizzily from one camera angle to another. I like their music as well; U2 for today's generation, however, the AQ left something to be desired. The 5.1 DTS HD MA soundtrack was muddy and lacked the crisp sound that I have heard from better recorded concerts on BD. It was 5.1 in name only, with the rear speakers only picking up assorted audience noise. The package comes with a CD, which I haven't checked out.

Finally got around to giving this a spin on Blu Ray and then came back to this thread because I wanted to make sure it wasn't just me...yes, the audio is pretty disappointing, lacking clarity and definition, and the high end sounds too clipped. Some of the visuals, on the other hand, are phenomenal. But the sound just isn't up there, despite DTS Blu Ray and recent source material...

I agree. I watched it after watching U2 Rose Bowl's BD and definitely thought the coldplay bd was lacking in clarity. Still enjoyable though and happy with my purchase!

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...
