Hello everyone, haven't posted any thoughts on concerts for a while to lack of discs that I am into.
Well, after reading quite a few reviews of this BD shortly after it came out and even now, I was reluctant to purchase because of comments of thin, light, low, recessed bass( kick drum and bass). Well, I finally caved, dropped $50 for the BD,CD,DVD package,( only BD set available near me).
I have a half decent HT and I am very picky about AQ on concert discs especially ones with the bass/kick drum too far back in the mix or near non existent ( who the heck mixes this rubbish?).
Anyway, I was very surprised with the AQ on this BD, overall it was a very good board mix, MA 5.1 was great with very little crowd noise in the rears, very well balanced, no screaming lead guitar over whelming the rest of the band and although I would have liked a little more bass and kick drum up front and more pronounced, I thought it was very well done indeed, what a pleasure to listen too.
Also what surprised me was Plant' vocals which for the most part were spot on especially considering his age and the strain over the years on his vocal chords. Great show and I actually liked the way the video was shot, kind of a mix of seventies type footage and then full blown HD.
