Don't know WHICH Springsteen Live in Barcelona you're watching. I WISH I had one where the PQ and Sound are awesome.
However, the one I bought has piss-poor Sound and PQ. A total waste of money. Really disappointing compared to the LIVE in NYC DVD which is one of my all-time favorite concert DVD's.
The Barcelona sound is so muddled and muddy, one cannot (almost) tell a guitar from a drum. The 5.1 mix is terrible in Barcelona. The 5.1 mix on NYC is amazing, as Springsteen's guitar comes directly from the dialog channel. The sound is crisp and clean.
NYC PQ is almost HDTV like. Close-ups of Roy Brittan's piano are like you're standing right next to him. Check out the piano close-ups in Barcelona. Like I said, piss-poor.
Sony really did a terrible job on this DVD.
Barcelona - PQ 4, Sound 4
NYC - PQ 8-9 (first DVD seems like an 8, 2nd. DVD is a 9), Sound 10.
Just thought y'all should have a second opinion.
