5.0 out of 5 stars Crips this is good.
I had avoided this album because so many people had written it off at the time and subsequently, what are they on?

I picked the DVDA up recently and by cricky if this is not the best acoustic album I have heard from Neil Young. The DVDA may be only stereo but it positively hums with atmosphere, the full benefits of the extra bit depth of DVDA are amply...

3.0 out of 5 stars DVD audio
I am not sure why this guy keeps going on about DTS as that is a lower quality system than the one that is used on the disc, which is the DVD Audio MLP decoding. Prehaps he doesnt have a true DVD Audio system and plays this disc back through a conventional DVD player that cannot produce the higher resolution. To actually play back the DVD audio track, one needs an amp and...

I picked the DVDA up recently and by cricky if this is not the best acoustic album I have heard from Neil Young. The DVDA may be only stereo but it positively hums with atmosphere, the full benefits of the extra bit depth of DVDA are amply demonstrates. The album contains some of in my opinion Neil Young's best acoustic songs. 'Little Wing' and 'The Old Homestead' from the aborted 1975 'Homegrown' project sound just as good as the newer songs such as 'Hawks and Doves'

3.0 out of 5 stars No Dts, 13 July 2004

This review is from: Hawks And Doves [DVD AUDIO] (DVD Audio)
Was delighted when this album first came out on CD -one of the what was it 5 albums ? that until then had never been issued on CD.
Neil Young is such a diverse artist- it was a delight to get that CD & listen at last to another side of Neil Young.
Neil still his own unique self. He gets bit redneck on the latter part of the album -Go from thoughful moody stuff to fun stuff.
Having already DVD AUDIO discs of HARVEST & GREENDALE in my collection & being delighted that both of these had Dts sound, I expected to find Dts on the newly issued DVD AUDIO discs of HAWKS & DOVES; ON THE BEACH & AMERICAN STARS & BARS.
Wrong !!!
No doubt the other Neil Young DVD AUDIO discs are the same.
I can't say how nuch I like Dts -It really brings the sound in -throws you amongst it (Knocks the spots of Dolby Digital 5:1 -that sounds flat in comparison)
Anyway be warned if you've got the HAWKS & DOVES on CD,& want to "upgrade" to the DVD AUDIO version-well if it's Dts you seek-you ain't getting it !
OK -you get some photos,discography etc etc-but one can get this most anywhere.
If you,like me, love Dts + loved the fact that HARVEST & GREENDALE DVD AUDIOS have this- Well just be aware it's not on this new batch of releases !
Why oh why ?
A real skimp on quality.
Such a pity - Disc could of been so much more.
Don't get me wrong I love Neil Young's music ! -Never tire of it :)
It's the lack of Dts that's the big big disapointment.
Had been waiting with glee for these discs, to find the sound well at least with HAWKS & DOVES is not much different to the CDs.
For a example of a great Dts disc -Cop a ear to the DVD of :

"Neil Young - Friends And Relatives Live From Red Rock Amphitheatre "
through a Dts player-Brilliant !!
