I wish a real band like Budos Band would do a movie. All the stuff here is just pop music (even if you disagree with my definition of "popular" music meaning that it is popular, not necessarily good).

Roger Waters - The Wall

I've gone through both blu rays that came with this package, here's my take: The concert itself is very well done. Video is mostly excellent (shot with the Red One camera I believe) and with the audio being Dolby Atmos, I listened in 7.1 Dolby TrueHD (7.2 at my house). I think this is only the 3rd concert i have in 7.1. I'm not sure how discrete the music is in the surrounds, but the sound effects are certainly set up for 7.1, very nice. The LFE is off the charts good. So no complaints with the audio/video. Having said that, the constant listening to Roger between songs as he drives around I found very annoying and distracts from the concert heavily. The last 3 of 4 blu ray concerts I purchased are like this, including Mannheim Steamroller and Lenny Kravitz. I don't mind the interviews etc, but I'd rather they be an entity unto themselves on a separate part of the disc. It really disrupts any flow the concerts have, IMO. Because of that, these will not be in a regular rotation at my place. As much as I enjoyed the music on The Wall, at well over 2 hours I was glad when it ended. YMMV, as always A word about the 2nd BRD, the whole thing is in DD stereo only....which includes the 2 songs with David Gilmour at the O2, unfortunately.

It seems producers/directors are like politicians in that they absolutely do not listen to their customers/constituents. I don't know anyone that likes that format yet it has been done over and over again. I was on the fence about this one and your review pushed me firmly onto the "No" side. Thanks for letting us know.

3 Doors Down DVD

It's a great DVD audio. I believe it came with a Super Audio CD as well.

Fleetwood Mac

There is a Fleetwood Mac I would add as well. Good tracks and I believe it's DD 5.1.

I think it was called Rumours. It was a DVD Audio disc. I'll see if I can locate it.

Wish I could help, but I don't have any all EJ concerts. I do have the DVD-A of "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" and the SACD of "Madman Across the River" and they are both excellent. But as far as anything of him on video, all I have is the DVD concert of "Music for Montserrat" where he's one of about eight other artists (including Phil Collins, Jimmy Buffett, Mark Knoffler, Sting, Eric Clapton and Paul McCartney). Elton John's three songs are simply marvelous and worth the price of the disc alone. Recorded in DTS Surround (or Dolby Digital) and sounds great considering how long ago it was recorded (1997).

I have both Elton 60 and The Red Piano. I like them both but if I had to pick one, it would be 60.

Yep, definitely EJ's 60 Bluray.

On a different note: Has anyone here watched Taylor Swift's 1989 World Tour Live on iTunes? Excellent concert! Even with the interviews in between songs. She is beautiful and talented. I look forward to the Blu-ray release with HD audio.

The news of Glenn Frey was hard to hear yesterday. I grew up wearing out their music and every band I was in played at least a handful of their songs. However, it's the repeated watchings of "HFO" and "Farewell" that made the band really personal to me. Farewell Mr. Fry. Your genius will live on for generations.

He will most definitely be missed. HFO is one of the best Concert Discs out there.

As I recall it was the first, or one of the very first, DVD concerts released in DTS, and they made doubly sure to do it right.

That was very sad news about Glen's passing, he will be sorely missed!

The Farewell from Melbourne bluray is stunning, visually and sonically...one of my faves!

Perplexing Blu-Ray issue..

I purchased LCD Soundsystem's Blu-Ray "Shut up and Play the Hits" and have an issue I cannot figure out. It is recorded in DTS-HD Master, of which I have several discs in the same format, but the center channel is COMPLETELY silent during the concert. When the band is talking backstage, dialogue comes out the center as it should. As soon as the concert starts, complete silence on the center channel. I have checked and replaced the HDMI connections and cables, ran "pink noise" through all channels to confirm they are working, tested things out with my other DTS Mastered discs, the signal input showing from my Marantz processor (complete system below) shows all channel active. I even thought I had gotten a defective disc from Amazon so ordered a replacement. Same thing is happening. This Blu-Ray has literally hundreds of great reviews on Amazon and not one says anything about zero sound coming from the center channel. I would greatly appreciate any input or suggestion cuz I am stumped! And frustrated...

I have seen at least one other disc without a center channel. Just how they decided to mix it for the disc I guess.

Another one is Shania Twain's Las Vegas show on blu ray. Excellent sound, DTS-HD Master 5.1 with a completely dead centre channel. I didn't even know until I read it in a forum one day, and sure enough no centre. Guess it's easy enough to miss if the front stage is mixed right to create a pseudo centre and one is not sitting too close to the centre speaker. As to why, no idea. Actually, I may have other BD concerts like this and am completely unaware. Ah well, ignorance is bliss
